These gorgeous faux stained glass butterflies were created in remebrance of little miss Lydia. Made with translucent polymer clay, each butterfly is filled little sparkles and shimmer (just like Lydia's sparkling smile).  Available in warm hues under the color label "pink" and cool hues under the color "blue." Each butterfly has been lovingly hand painted with a alcohol ink  polyurethane colored clear coat, gold colored guilding paint, and sealed with a high solid polyurethane clear coat.  

50% of each sale will be donated to Charlie's Guys, an organization helping bereaved children of families that have experienced immense loss of loved ones by gifting experiences or gifts.

More information about the organization can be found at www.charliesguys.org

More information about Lydia's gift and her family's experience with Charlie's Guys can be found on Instagram via @lovelydiaco (www.instagram.com/lovelydiaco).

Care Instructions

Here are some tips to extend the longevity of ear candy:

  • Store items away from direct sunlight, preferably in a box, bag, or drawer.
  • Apply perfumes, makeup, and lotions prior to donning your gems.
  • Avoid excess moisture: do not shower or swim with your earrings and take them off while working out to avoid contact with excess sweat.
  • Do not sleep in your earring to prevent accidental breakage.
  • If you dye your hair with semi-permanent hair color (hi it is me!), be mindful that fresh hair dye can transfer onto and stain polymer clay.
  • Should you need to clean your items, try using a soft baby wipe, microfiber cloth with mild soap and water. A small bit of rubbing alcohol can also help, although harsh chemicals should be avoided as not to damage the polymer clay or finishes such as resin, polyurethane clear coat, paints, foils, etc. 
  • Raw brass can be cleaned using home ingredients like lemon juice. Brasso can be used brass components (just be sure to not let it touch the clay).
  • While polymer clay and resin are strong materials when cured properly, please do not try a bend test on your earrings.  Strong does not mean indestructible.

Handmade With Love

All items are either handmade or hand assembled by me in my home studio. Here are some of the steps I take to hand make each creation:

  • Custom mix polymer clay colors
  • Condition the clay either by hand or with the help of a clay conditioning machine
  • Apply any textures, inclusions, or embellishments to the clay
  • Hand cut shapes with an exacto knife, cutters specifically made for clay by clay cutter designers, or custom cutters that have been printed with my 3d printer
  • Bake and hand sand each component
  • Apply resin or polyurethane clear coat as needed
  • Hand drill and assemble

I am not a machine but a human working with my heart and my hands.  While consistency is very important to me, each earring might vary slightly from each other (from colors, shaping, drilling, etc). Slight bubbles, fingerprints, minor knicks or scratches, and trace lint are not considered imperfection.  Each item is inspected for quality again after being assembled.  On occasion, you can find less than perfect offerings called "seconds" for sale at a small discount.
