The Process

Each Howlite earring starts off as a block of basic white polymer clay.  It undergoes a magical transformation that begins with running the kneaded polymer clay into a…pasta machine.  That’s right, a pasta machine helps further soften and condition the polymer clay for use. A good amount of black acrylic paint and a few specks of fine gold foil later, the polymer clay is compressed, re-kneaded and shaped into a cane.  To create the slab from which the earring shapes are cut out from, the cane is sliced up. The sliced pieces are then organized into one large slab.

Once baked, each piece is sanded, hand drilled, assembled, photographed and packaged by me. To learn more about the making of each product, please visit my instagram page: @virauful.
