Usually I make this pattern by stamping it with a flathead screwdriver. On a set of vases for the Beverly Laurel Hotel in Los Angeles, I’m carving it instead of stamping it. The carved texture is more.
Painted metal donut discs and handmade earwires add a bit of sophistication to these earrings. The base polymer is cured and sanded prior to adding the top layer of clay that anchors the earwires. A bit time-consuming, but so much fun!
