Materials Used

Polymer Clay

The main material I use to make earrings is polymer clay. This is a PVC based, non-toxic plastic, which is flexible and soft when shaping and creating, then hardens when baked in the oven. 

 

Gold & Silver Plated Findings

Plated metals are named after what they are - a base metal with a different plating. Usually this is brass, steel or iron, plated with a thin layer of gold or silver. These findings are fine for most people to wear frequently, but some with more sensitive ears might have some irritation. I always welcome enquiries for specific metal findings, and can source your preferred finish. 

The findings I use are always nickel safe.

 

Stainless Steel

Some of my hoop findings are 304 stainless steel which, as above, most people are fine to wear. This metal doesn't tarnish.

 

Rubber Earring Backs

I use rubber earring backs for all stud or hook earrings. These are more comfortable to wear than metal, and often stay in place better. I recommend you use the backs even for hook earrings, to prevent them escaping! If you prefer metal butterfly backs, you can use any from your existing earrings - the posts I use are standard sized and they should fit perfectly.
