Deep from the mystical seas where it is said the ancient lands of Atlantis, Lemuria and Ancient Greece are buried, lie lost treasures. These ARTiFActs were collected by my muse during her recent holiday. She was kind enough to bring them home with her so that unique pieces of jewelry could be created. Each fragment holds a bit of magic from ancient cultures.
These statement earrings were sculpted from paper clay. This biodegradable medium is very lightweight. The clay takes a few days to dry. Then it has several layers of gesso painted followed by gorgeous hues of pinks, teal blue, gold and bronze. A protective glazed is added to seal in the color.
Semiprecious stone beads of turquoise, pink jasper and mother of pearl sea shell are wire wrapped with non-tarnish copper wire adorned by glass turquoise blue and copper beads.
Turquoise was used by many ancient cultures for healing and protection. Jasper comes in several colors. Pink is the color of love, self love and unconditional love. It is a birthstone for December. Jasper is grounding, also used for healing and protection. Mother of Pearl sea shell represents the Divine Mother, the sea and is nurturing. It is also a birthstone for June.
These shoulder duster earrings do not match! The paper clay earring measures about 4.75 inches and the mate about 3.25 inches long. Intended to make a statement when you enter the room. Wear together, alone or give one to a friend.
Sterling Silver ear wires. A bohemian accessory for a special event, prom, wedding or fiesta.
Please note that the colors in the photographs may slight vary from the original piece. Capturing the subtle hues is difficult. Several coats of paint were used to create an ethereal effect.
Gift box included.
Handcrafted with love by artist jeanie mossa at the Planet Calamari Studio in the USA.
