Olive Tassel & Raw Brass Earrings
Tassels, Raw Brass & Polymer clay. What's not to love?
The story behind these stunning Olive Tassel & Raw Brass Earrings, made from oxidised brass & polymer clay, is just as delightful as the jewellery.
New Mum Sylvia left her job in 2016 to pursue a career as a freelance graphic designer & at the same time she began “playing” with clay. It was, she says, “like finding a long lost love.”
Her Dad was a goldsmith in Greece and she remembers watching in awe as he poured melted gold and created incredibly complicated jewellery from scratch. Sylvia’s jewellery designs, just like her life experiences, is a mix of different styles, while striving for a clean and simple aesthetic. Creating geometric jewellery out of polymer clay, combined with brass, copper, wood, leather and other natural media in her home studio in Sydney, every piece is hand-made. Sylvia's business name, Oria means limits in Greek, something she tries to push every day.

S I Z E + W E I G H T These Olive Tassel & Raw Brass Earrings are 8cm long and 1.5cm wide. Polymer clay is a very light material making these super comfortable to wear all day.
C A R E + C L E A N I N G A damp cloth used very gently is the best way to clean your polymer clay jewellery. Be sure to dry your pieces thoroughly. Sleeping, showers, swimming, sprays and exercise should be avoided to ensure their longevity. The pieces can be fragile if rough with them (eg. chucking them in the bottom of your purse! :) So please always treat them well & keep in a safe place.
R A W M E T A L S As with all raw metals the copper/brass elements will tarnish over time, any home-made cleaner or silver polishing cloth will work, they're best kept somewhere dry.
C O L O U R Each item is handmade and one of a kind, please note colours may vary between screens depending on your monitor settings. The combination of Green, Black & Raw Brass and a tassel make these earrings so versatile.
