Scrap Clay Earrings - Stripes, Stripes and More Stripes

About this design:

When the scrap polymer clay piles up, you have to do something with it, so I spent the weekend making earrings and pendants. These are some of my favorites.


polymer clay, czech glass, bracciated jasper, Blue Quartz (rainbow), brass, black onyx

    Thanks, ladies. Karen, the next to the last pair with the blue quartz drops are sitting on a dark, dark bronze colored base that extends just a bit past the edges of the striped piece.

    The last pair do not have a border, but since the striped veneers are less than the thickness of a U.S. dime, they are all backed with another color.

    Thanks again!

    These stripes are veneers that are about , so they are all backed in a different color, either black, bronze or brass clay. :)
