These unique elegant handmade, ceramic statement fashion earrings make a lovely gift idea for any occasion or just to spoil yourself or perfect for that new outfit.

Each piece is completely hand crafted which means no two pairs are identical and making them individual works of art for your ears.

It takes an exceptionally long time to achieve the final beautiful and elegant Nerikomi (Agateware) results.

It all beings with the Nerikomi technique of mixing the stain into the clay body. For this result I used porcelain which had been dried and cut into small pieces and dried, made into a slip (with boiling water), then stained with the powdered stain. It is then left to dry to a wedging (wedging is like kneading but one is trying to remove air bubbles instead of adding them) consistency, then wedged until fully and evenly combined. After this, it is then wrapped in plastic and left alone to ameliorate for a couple of weeks, then wedged again and hand patted and rolled to a thin slab. The same is done with the pure white porcelain body of clay. It is then layered and stacked into alternate coloured clays to create a striped marbling effect when hand built, formally named called Nerikomi technique.
Once the actual clay body is prepared with the pattern, it is then rolled to a thin slab or hand rolled or pinched and carefully hand crafted into each individual piece by hand, they are wiped and fully covered to slowly dry and prevent cracking for another two weeks. When dry, they are then bisque fired to 1000 degrees, sanded by hand to refine the edges and bring out the variety of intricate patterns, cleaned and washed and left to dry. They are then glazed with three layers of clear glaze on one side and left to dry for another 24 hours then re-fired to over 1290 degrees to get their final beautifully unique layered and marbled and glazed pattern to each piece.

They are then fitted to the hypoallergenic wire to the ear piece to achieve each final stunning statement piece.

The Nerikomi (agateware) method of clay mixing makes each individual marbled piece a unique work of art. Each piece in one of a kind and not replicated.

Each pair of earrings comes in a jewellery box for safekeeping as ceramic jewellery is fragile and needs special care when storing.
