The amazing leafy foliage rectangles used in the LEAF ME ALONE handmade earrings were individually created by polymer clay artist Susana Paredes.  Polymer clay is a lightweight but durable artist’s clay, a versatile medium with which to work. The polymer clay used to make the rounded triangles is a green turquoise color with mica sparkles.  A permanent polymer clay transfer was applied to the dangles: leaves of turquoise blue, light blue and green with small cranberry red berries against a suede look tan background. The design is on one side of the rectangles only - the backside is smooth, subtly sparkly turquoise green polymer clay.  Because the dangles are made from polymer clay, the earrings are extremely lightweight, perfect for those who are sensitive to wearing heavier earrings. The dangles were carefully wire wrapped with copper wire to attach to the upper part of the earrings.
To add eye catching interest, premium quality Czech glass beads and Swarovski crystals were added above the leafy rectangles.  The Czech glass beads are a baroque shape, slightly irregular rounds, that were faceted to capture and radiate light. They were made from crystal clear glass but have a lovely Picasso finish in brown, amber and blue for an aged look.  Unfortunately, the blue Picasso finish doesn’t show up well in the photos, but it is there, especially on the top and bottom of the beads. A copper disc spacer separates each Czech glass bead from the Swarovski crystal. The Swarovski crystal is a brilliant, translucent blue green color, borrowed from blue tourmaline gemstones, called “indicolite.”  A small copper bead caps the indicolite crystal.
All of the elements used to create the unique LEAF ME ALONE earrings were strung on copper wire, the upper end carefully wire wrapped into a loop.  The loop was connected to sterling silver French hook earwires with copper bead accents for a perfect finish to the one of a kind earrings.

For centuries, leaves have been a symbol of the circle of life.  Even though man made, glass and crystals carry 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 LEAF ME ALONE handmade 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!
