Concave vs. Convex

Here's something else I'm playing around with right now.  These earrings are longer and larger than my usual pieces.  Somehow, the double layers and the pearl dangles just seemed to need more space. I used Kato clay for these.  I did try Premo! but again it didn't seem to have the "body" and feel I wanted for these earrings.  I really like the way the Skinner blend and the texture contribute additional contrasts to the curved forms. The green earrings curve forward at the bottom while the blue pair curve backward.












This new pair of convex earrings, sports crystals instead of pearls.  Love the summery colors, too.

    1. Hi,
      Thank you. I used Kato clay for these earrings. I wanted them very thin since they are large, but I also wanted strength. Kato works perfectly!
