This set of matching ring and earrings is part of my collection L'Ancien régime. Both the ring and the pair of earrings are handmade from polymer clay. They have been sculpted, wet-sanded, and accented with acrylics to imitate aged, weathered, rusted metal, an effect which has only increased its value and regal stance. The set is a true tromp l'oeil, something that I often indulge in as you can see from the rest of my collection, which will make everyone wonder what they are made of.

The earrings drop measures 2 in x 1 in or 5 cm x 2.5 cm (approx.)
The ring has a bronze/copper blank base, adjustable to size. The dome measures 1 3/4 in or approx. 4.4 cm.

The item is handcrafted with great attention to detail.

= About polymer clay =
Polymer clay is a relatively new material. It is sold in blocks with a soft consistency similar to play-dough, but once cured, the clay hardens. Depending on clay brand, type of design, and processing, it can be very hard or semi-flexible. Most of the items in my collection such as cuffs and bib necklaces are semi-flexible so they are easy to put on. They are light and comfortable to wear, but quite sturdy. A polymer clay item can of course break, but I use a technique that makes them stronger and more resistant than what you can usually purchase.

My polymer clay items are finished with acrylics, mica powders, and other materials after being cured, and are coated with clear gloss to protect them. In the titles you will see described the colors of the items. A piece described as a copper polymer clay item is not made of copper, it is crafted of polymer clay so as to resemble copper in appearance.
