Alaska On My Mind Earrings (rectangle shape)
While my Mom's family is native from the Aleutian Islands, I grew up in California. When making jewelry my thoughts are often about the culture up in the great Northwest. The solid shapes and dark colors of the Alaska tribal art inspires me. The patterns in these earrings are made by making a cane (cylinder shape) with polymer clay. When sliced, the pattern is nearly identical each time. Shapes are curved from the side for a pretty shaped piece.
shape length: 1 1/2 inches
length from top of earwire: 2 3/8 inches
shape width: 1/2 inch
These shapes are handmade with polymer clay. Sides are painted with 18k gold paint. Piece is sealed with matte coat. The earwires are closable levers and 24k electroplated gold on brass and are lead and nickel free. Made in USA.
Put jewelry on after using face and hair products. Pieces can be gently wiped with slight damp cloth and then dried with cloth if need be. Keep out of direct sunlight. To slow oxidation of metal from tarnishing, keep in box.
