After months of winter gray and white I needed some color in my life! Polymer clay came to the rescue as I made colorful flowers and used them in a bead-embroidered collar, which I entered in Fire Mountain Gems “Creative Clays” contest (thus far it has made it to the second round of judging).  Wanting to continue working in a floral theme, that project was followed by my “Fleurs et Papillon” cuff. Now, spring has finally arrived and each day flowers and ferns are emerging both outdoors and in my studio! The vivid colors of the cutouts Henri Matisse created in the later years of his life are inspiring my latest works. I so love the pair of blue and green asymmetrical polymer cutout earrings that I made two weeks ago that I just had to make more! This collection is the result of my toil…or should I say play because these were really delightful to create! No two earrings are exactly alike, but they all coordinate beautifully! I find mixing and matching jewelry to be great fun! On any given day I might wear a hoop earring on one ear and a long dangle on the other or I’ll wear just one earring leaving the other ear bare. Do you do that too? I’ve decided to sell these earrings individually rather than in a set for that very reason! You’ll find these in my Etsy shop!  Here  are a few closeup photos from my One-of-a-Kind Matisse Inspired Polymer Clay Cutout Earrings collection…Enjoy!
