These beautiful porcelain ceramic earrings from Earth Paper Fibre are made from stunning, hand painted matte underglaze, on a hand-cut porcelain disc and finished with sterling silver fastenings. The porcelain ceramic is left with a lovely, almost translucent, matte finish.
These earrings have been thoughtfully made using the finest porcelain from one of the best natural mineral sources within in the UK. The porcelain for these earrings is cut in its ‘leather hard’ state, polished and left to dry slowly for a few days. When it is totally bone dry, it goes in for its first firing, taking approximately 12 hours.
Afterwards, each individual piece is sanded, and decorated by hand and then goes back into the kiln for a final firing, taking a further 14 hours. The high temperature of the kiln makes the jewellery extremely lightweight, strong and durable. Finally, each piece of jewellery is put together and finished using high quality gold filled hoop fastenings which are also sourced in the UK.
The entire process for each piece takes 1-2 weeks. Due to the handmade nature of these items, no two products will be the same, the patterns may differ slightly for each product ensuring you have a product as beautifully unique as you are!
