I have an ocean life stamp but I wanted to focus on the Starfish. So when I pressed the stamp into moist Precious metal clay I focused on the Starfish, using a diamond shaped stencil. I wanted to make a small pair of petite earrings. Earring tastes vary so much. I like to have a variation in my collection.
These are very sweet ocean earrings but the focus is the Starfish. I have always lived by the ocean, so I like ocean themes. In Mumbai our apartment was facing the ocean.
After firing the earrings in the kiln, I burnished the Starfish with 24K gold foil, a process called Keum boo and painted parts of the earrings with patina to get the lovely copper and blue colors.
