These are one of a kind earrings made from recycled polymer components.
They were made from marbled red clay that has gotten a texture brighter red finished.
They are 49mm (1 7/8”) from the top of the ear wires which are antiqued sterling silver.
I work to reduce waste in my studio and that includes responsibly using every piece of polymer clay, including baked pieces.
Scrap clay is saved, reconsidered, re-designed , re-cured if necessary and "redeemed" to make new pairs of one-of-a -kind earrings.
The last photo shows a series of Redeemed earrings in progress. You can read more about my process here…http://genevievewilliamson.blogspot.com/search?q=redeemed
