Hand Painted Concave Cherry Blossom Double Sided Earrings, Sakura Earrings
These cherry blossom tribute earrings were created out of a custom order from a client. She was looking for a gift and described what she wanted. I had so much fun making them in several designs for her to choose from that I made a bunch of blossoms.
I chose polymer clay to make them lightweight and some I made using Millifiori Cane, a process where you make a long cane made of sections of clay. You cut small sections and each section looks like a tiny blossom. The other technique I used to create some options was to hand-paint the blossoms.
For another style, I used my gifted metal punch from a jewellery artist in Australia. This was my first time to cut some Aluminium Disks, and was super fun. I think these look great handpainted and built them using threader chains, and can also be on earring hooks.
These earrings are 3 x 3 cm polymer clay disks. Drop length about 4 cm
