QUESTION: Are your tiles real antique Portuguese Azulejo tiles?
ANSWER: Absolutely not. In our description of each item, we try to call attention to the theft and destruction of antique Portuguese tiles. Even the tiles found in flea markets and antique stores were most likely stolen off a building during the night. We have seen entire home facades disappear during the night to thieves. Thankfully, Portugal just passed a law declaring this theft a crime. We can only hope that it will one day be enforced.
For this reason, we have no part in this despicable crime. We make our own tiles from polymer clay. Ceramic would be far too heavy for earrings and impossible to mold into the shapes we want. For the hoops, we mold the clay as thin as we can get it, so that it will look pretty inside the hoops.

QUESTION: What kind of metal is it?
ANSWER: SOLID STAINLESS STEEL
If it is gold tone, it has a real gold wash. It is not gold plated. Stainless steel is hypoallergenic and nickel free.

These tiles are located on the facade of a very, very old building in the lovely town of Ovar. To my dismay, many old buildings have fallen in disrepair and this is an attempt to preserve a little of the patrimony of Portugal before it's too late.

Ovar was founded in 1251! Surrounded by lagoons and saltpans, Ovar is conveniently located between the northern cities of Porto and Aveiro.
It is an unusual town where some of the women still wear black pork-pie hats and walk around the streets barefoot. Many of the local inhabitants are descendants of Phoenician sailors who settled around these shores because they were attracted by the purity of the sky and the excellent fishing to be had. (see photo of actual Facade)


These tiles are a little less than 1cm square. Sweet! Solid Stainless Steel.

Although the tiles are water resistant, care should be taken to keep the tiles and metal out of water and away from lotions, including cosmetics, sunscreen, hairspray, etc. The chemicals in these products will dull the finish on the tiles.
🌸
The term Azulejo or Tile dates back to the time of Arab occupation of the Iberian Peninsula. The term "azulejo is derived from the Arab word (al zulej) which means a smooth and polished stone. It wasn't until the 16th century that the process was perfected into the tile we know today.

All my tiles are replicas made of polymer clay where the image actually becomes part of the clay through baking. No glue is used in the process. The pieces become waterproof and scratch resistant. Due to the handmade and hand shaped nature of each tile, slight variations will occur, as no two pieces are alike.

First off, the style of the earring and the pattern drew me to purchase the earrings. I got them for my brother's girlfriend for Christmas, hoping that she will like them. I think she definitely will. Received the earrings in a timely fashion so I could wrap them for the holiday. I'd definitely recommend!

These earrings are absolutely lovely! They are so very much like some of the most beautiful Portuguese tiles I saw when I visited that country and I was thrilled when I received them! I plan to gift them to someone who traveled to Portugal with me!

Lovely! I needed a splash of a blue that was not just navy or pastel. This is it! White background makes it pop. Just right!
