These earrings made of polymer clay were pressed into a mold and then a Swarovski crystal was carefully added to the clay before curing. When hardened and cooled completely, the artist hand painted deeper shades of mustard, greens and golds on the surface and then sealed it. At the bottom a little clay ammolite dangles with a Swarovski crystal center. The ammonite was molded from a real ammolite from the artists personal collection. The nature of polymer clay produces a very lightweight earring with substantial design elements. Just below the earwire sits a honey colored crystal. The earwires were handmade from solid copper wire.
Ammolites are fossils of ancient ammonites, millions of years old. Feng Shui followers believe Ammolite has the power to detoxify the body and improve overall well being by improving the body’s flow if energy. Feng Shui supporters also believe that each different color of Ammolite influences the wearer differently.
