Have fun with these beautiful purple embossed Celtic knot earrings. They are feather-light because they are made of aluminium. Each earring is unique. The pattern of the vivid purple and deep grey alcohol ink is different for every single one.

First, the ink is applied. As part of this process, it is spritzed with alcohol to create star-like speckles on the surface. Then the earring circle is cut out. Then it is embossed with a lovely Celtic knot pattern. Then it is protected with varnish, and made up into an earring for you to wear. The earring attachments are in the "French Hook" style. Each earring comes with a silicone rubber stopper to make them more secure.

Items made of copper, bronze, or silver will tarnish unless given a protective coating. Some of the items I have made of these materials I have protected with Renaissance Wax or with clear enamel -- check the individual listing. However, most items with these materials have not been coated, because coatings tend to wear off unevenly and look unsightly.

To remove tarnish: if the item is pure chainmaille, put in a container, cover with boiling water and add a tablespoon of vinegar, or a teaspoon of citric acid. Let this steep for five minutes, and then rinse THOROUGHLY. If the item includes semi-precious stones, it can't be cleaned in acid unless you remove the stones first, or the stones will be ruined.
Items made of stainless steel, coloured/enamelled copper, or aluminium will not tarnish. To clean them, put in a container with hot water and a little dish-washing detergent, and shake; then rinse. This can also be done as a general cleaning method for other metals, but it will not remove tarnish.
Jewellery made with textiles should usually not need cleaning. If they do, try a gentle hand-wash in cold water, to ensure that the textile does not shrink.
Lay the item flat to dry. Do not tumble-dry.
Note that some items made of silk may change colour if you wash them, so be careful.
The Wearable Art is just that: art. It costs more because it takes more work and more skill to create. Each piece of wearable art begins with a meaning I am trying to convey. To distill the essence of that meaning into a piece of jewellery takes much thought, and sometimes much experimentation, since the first attempt to construct what I envisage may not always work. When that happens, I have to try again. This may entail using different techniques or different materials, or even going back to the drawing-board and figuring out a completely different approach.

My other works can also have meaning, but with them, the title and its meaning comes after I have created the work, not before.

Alcohol ink is delicate, vivid, translucent, beautiful. It is the same ink as is used in permanent ink pens. But this beautiful ink has an Achilles heel: UV radiation. Because it is dye-based ink, rather than pigment-based, it is more vulnerable to UV radiation than paint is. That is not to say you can only wear alcohol ink jewellery at night! But strong UV radiation will cause it to fade.

So... don't wear it under tanning lamps, or stick it under your gel-nail curing lamp. Don't wear it while sunbathing, or to the all-day cricket. Don't hang it up in your window (even though it is pretty and you want to admire it!)

If you look after it, it will stay beautiful for years.
