About the artist:
Jasmine Russel, born and raised on the Island, always had a need to create from early on, the love for drawing, painting, making ceramics, mosaic, scrapbooking, card making, jewelry designing and now polyerclay artist. She is a mother of two, is an animal lover, especially dogs. Jasmine was one of the early chichi painters for Serena’s Art Factory. She was inspired by the work and Serena to find a path of her own in creating and selling her handmade items. Through the years Jasmine and Serena have stayed in contact as business associates by Antengra, supplying Serena’s Art Factory with the tiny Chichi painter numbers you find under every hand painted item.
Our paths have crossed once more, and now together we have created the cutest chichi earring collection ever. Do tune in regularly to see upcoming models.
The process of making Chichi earrings:
The polymer is first conditioned by kneading and then colored if needed. The black is rolled out to a flat layer and cut out by a Chichi® shaped polymer clay cutter. Next the bodice of the Chichi is cut out from clay in the specially chosen Chichi color pallet. The bodice is lifted and carefully applied onto the Chichi’s. They are then cured in the oven. The next phase is the sanding of the backs and edges of the Chichi and after, the hand drawing of the back of the bodice in matching colors to the front. The beautiful shine is applied with resin, at the front as well as at the back. The Chichi® is then drilled and provided with gold-filled earhooks.
As result, a beautifully hand crafted Chichi® that brings joy to any ear!
To keep your Chichi® earrings fresh and popping, wipe them clean with a soft damp cloth after every time you wear them.
