I started out with precious metal silver clay, created a textured background and cut out my shape. I placed a bezel cup on each earring surface so I could add a carnelian cabochon. I created a texture on the clay and fired the earrings in a kiln for 2 hours.
I burnished the overlay designs with 24K gold foil, painted on patina for accent and pressed in the carnelian cabochons, then closed the bezels.
Dimensions 1 1/8 inch X 7/8 inch
These earrings are bright and cheerful and enhance any attire.
Sterling silver ear wires. These can be switched to comfortable sterling silver clip-ons for an additional charge.
PLEASE NOTE: These will be on display at the Pajaro Valley Art Gallery from August 25th till October 3rd. They will be available for purchase there.
