From Inspiration to Earrings

From Inspiration to Earrings, originally uploaded by fmirela.

These pendulum shell earrings are one of a kind and have been inspired by Sanibel Island sea shells, Florida.
Looking for shapes and design everywhere makes me want to transform the whole world into silver.
It’s what I did with the shell in this picture. The tip of the shell has been pressed into the FIMO clay, to create the circles in the triangle. Very geometric, yet organic looking design. The clay has been baked in the oven for 25 minutes at 275 degrees F.
The PMC+ lump has been pressed into the mold, torch fired and brass brushed for a soft finish. The process has been repeated for the second earring.
They hang from sterling silver ear wires, and move like pendulums when you move, creating the impression of being larger then they really are.

So, no the world would not be still casted in silver, there’s lots of movement to this dangling earrings.
