Polymer clay has taken the jewellery world by storm and we're as enthralled by the gallery-quality pieces of wearable art. Only in ASRA, this medium is more versatile, trendy and super affordable! Jewellery artist Ashwini's ingenuity lies in her imagination and constant need to experiment and make things her own; clearly visible in her collection once you've browsed through the lot. To us it's how she models the clay to take up textures like a dream in any shape or object!
Like her embossed earrings are unlike anything we've seen done with polymer clay. Almost 3D like, imagine flowers sculpted on round/hexagonal drop earrings or studs. We love the florals on pastels -- bunch of roses/other flowers against the most pleasant and subtle blue, yellows and pinks. Ashwini also uses objects like wooden mehendi stamps, cake tools/cutters and ingredients like pepper (check out the black and white earrings) to create imprinted, stamped and textured earrings. You will also find the OG marbled effect polymer clay earrings. All beauties, these are perfect for those who have an idiosyncratic sense of style, according to Ashwini.
ASRA's earrings are also statement and sustainable in the way that they use very little or no jewellery supplies like wire, metal, resin, fibers, charms, beads or wood. So they don't fade away or chip and break off. Instead, polymer clay tends to hold colours better and longer and is incredibly lightweight, not to forget unique! The medium is also very forgiving and any imperfection only enhances its look. Oh, and remember affordability? Anything on ASRA's line everything costs under INR 400 (excluding shipping)!
