Imagine a journey in which you stumble upon worn shards of an ancient tablet. These earrings have that feel. I love the subtle matte blue speckle of this glaze, and I know you will, too. The clay focal beads are glazed front and back. The Czech glass beads are translucent.
I handmade these in my studio. Beginning with raw clay, the focal bead was formed, dried slowly, fired in a kiln to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit, dipped in glaze, and then fired again to over 2300 degrees Fahrenheit. The glass beads were purchased, but I finished the wire wrapping and ear wires. The ear wires are non tarnish silver plated wire. These artisan ear wires are 45 mm, or around 1.75 inches, from the top of the earwire to the bottom of the drop. They weigh 5 grams each. If you need a reference, a nickel weighs 4 grams, and a quarter weighs 5 grams.
