This pair of stud earrings were made by me from ceramic stoneware and mounted on sterling silver stud backs with butterfly clips.

If you are familiar at all with Sydney's beaches you will probably recognise these as the charming little star shells that are to be found in abundance. I have made plaster moulds of several such shells and now use these molds to make ceramic replicas of the shells with all the details of the original. If you live in Sydney or have ever visited our shores, these earrings would make a great souvenir

They are glazed with my 'Blue Cloud' glaze on the front which pools to a pale blue where thick and is cream coloured where thin. I have left the back unglazed, revealing the white clay which has been sanded smooth.

The earrings are fired in my electric kiln to stoneware temperature (1260-1280 degrees celsius). I then attach the ceramic shells to sterling silver studs.

The earrings come mounted on the white info card shown.
