Carly's “Chevron” stud is a mix of old meets new. The classic chevron shape seen in iconic designs is given a three dimensional facelift with added planes and funk. The “Chevron” stud is handmade from locally sourced clay. The white is a semigloss eggshell-like glaze and given added elegance with 22K yellow gold luster applied to some of the planes(luster is a process involving real gold, the way you'd find on a nice tea cup). All studs come on 925 sterling silver posts.
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.
