This is a commission I did for ~ShadowTsuki
, this is her design. She wanted me to do a lotus flower and a crescent moon as stud earrings. The crescent moon has an opal effect which looks GREAT and I added a starry background, dark blue clay with silver mica
she wanted the lotus flower to fade to purple, so I painted it by hand to get that effect. The lotus flower was a big pain to make since all the petals had to be pretty much identical and it had to be made in MANY steps. I had to find a balance between accuracy and strength, I was afraid to make the petals so thin that they would break. I'm happy with how it turned out, and I hope that she'll like it too
Technical stuff: Polymer clay, the petals were painted to resemble a lotus flower, everything has a good layer of glaze for shine and added strength. Both are mounted on stainless steel studs. Each earring is 1.5 cm ~ a bit over half an inch in diameter.
