I always called them angel wings. The reason is the source of my inspiration for this model. It was time around Christmas and I was already unpacking some of our ornaments and when I held pair of angel wings in my hands then it struck me. It was perfect inspiration for a new pair of polymer clay dangle earrings.
Despite the festive time I wanted to create something summery colorful. I chose my favorite combination of pink, turquoise and green clay and this was my very first sculpted pair of angel wings:
Actually they got much more attention than I expected and within my network they became very popular. Soon I had to make many more new pairs. I also think that my sculpting skills improved remarkably. Later I created a softer/pastel version as well.
And many many more color variations. You can see few examples here, including one with use of polymer clay canes for feathers:
I still have some ideas for different variations of the design, so stay tuned for more 🙂
