Carly's hunks are so easy to wear, and the red color is a lovely rustic garnet glaze allowing the clay to present itself as uniquely as a thumbprint on each set of earrings. Made from locally sourced clay cut into strips and gingerly snapped into simple hunks. Each stud is high fired in a gas kiln twice before being set atop 925 sterling silver backings.
Carly Slade works in collaboration with her friend Meghan, founders of Slade Goods. We discovered her as she was just completing her masters degree in Fine Art Ceramics at San Jose State University. She has great style and started making these stud earrings for herself and her friends when she realized that so many earrings in stores these days are utterly boring. Because each stud is made by hand and hand lustered, a pair of her earrings is completely unique.
