This beautiful motif and patternway is inspired by the Otomi indigenous people's pattern work in central Mexico.
20% of the sale from each pair will be donated to the Otomi Indigenous Communities in central Mexico to assist in preserving their culture. The Tenango print features flora and fauna found in their community and the print is of their creation.
"Common motifs are animals, thought to be bearers of important news, and four- and eight-pointed stars intended to represent the cardinal direction. Other symbols may represent fertility, nature, helpful spirits, harmful spirits, or spirits that serve as intermediaries between our world and that of the spirits. The print derives from the Otomi people who are found in central Mexico."

Polymer clay is a light weight and durable clay as is acrylic. Each piece was made by hand and can vary slightly from what is pictured. No two items will ever be alike. Every item is carefully shaped, smoothed, sanded and polished by hand. The glitter is sealed with varnish to protect the piece.

All designs and pieces are created in my Tucson, AZ studio.

Do not wet polymer clay earrings. Avoid using chemicals, solvents, perfume, jewelry cleaners, or hairspray near the earrings.
In the case that it becomes dirty, wipe gently with a soft, damp cloth. When not in use, store polymer clay jewelry in a box or a separate compartment. Keep away from sharp objects to avoid scratching the surface. This will help with the preservation of each handmade piece.
The earrings are carefully packaged in a cotton-filled box and mailed in a bubble wrap envelope.
