The superbly fun polymer clay daggers used in the PERFECTLY PURPLE PLUM earrings were individually handcrafted by Heather Powers of Humblebeads.  Polymer clay is an artists clay that can be colored, molded and formed into whatever the artist envisions.  Since a polymer clay item is “baked” at the end, the pieces are very hard but also are very lightweight, perfect for earrings!  The spikes started out as a rich purple clay base with a bit of mica powder for subtle sparkle.  The top ends were dipped in a metallic copper paint for a posh old copper glow.  Since the spikes were individually handmade, as you can see in the photos, they are not identical - each has its own personality.  The spikes were carefully wire wrapped on copper wire.

 

To flawlessly complement the purple spikes, translucent Czech glass melon shaped beads were added.  The lovely melon beads are a pale plum color.  A metallic copper Picasso finish was added to each melon bead for an aged effect and to add eye catching radiance.  The melon beads positively glow when the earrings are worn. A copper disc spacer frames the top and bottom of each rondelle.  All the elements used to created the PERFECTLY PURPLE PLUM artisan spike earrings were strung on copper wire and carefully wire wrapped.  The top loop was attached to sterling silver French hook earwires.  Two small copper bead accents were added to each earwire.  

 


A spike / dagger is symbolic for protection, bravery and courage.   Even though man made, glass carries the energies of transformation, rebirth and communication.  Copper is said to allow the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.  Silver is a metal of love and healing; it is a mirror to the soul, helping us to see ourselves as others see us.


 

The PERFECTLY PURPLE PLUM spike earrings were carefully designed and handmade in a dog friendly, smoke free studio. They will be carefully packed in an organza jewelry bag with tissue, perfect for gift giving to a loved one . . . or to yourself!
