Monday Giveaway - Cutest Earrings ever!

It's MONDAY! Which means its time for our brand new Monday Giveaway. Each and Every Monday Stop by to enter to win something fabulous from members of The {NewNew} York Etsy team. This Monday we are proudly giving away a pair of Mosaic Dot Earings, from our very own Salt and Paper.

These earrings are part of her new dot mosaic collection. Little circles in tan and cream gather round a bright fuschia center tile on a base of coffee brown. They are made of expertly cured and finished polymer clay which makes them lightweight and easy to wear. simple and really stunning! Lovingly sanded and polished to a satiny, weathered finish with chunky beveled edges. hanging from hand-formed brass earwires.These are real mosaics! the tiles are individually cut and cured, assembled into a design, grouted, sanded and polished.

The disks measure approx 5/8" in diameter (1.5cm) and 1/8" thick (.3cm) and earrings measure approx 1 1/8" (3cm) from top of earwire to bottom of disk.

Natalie Wedeking is the Brooklyn-based designer/craftsperson behind Salt & Paper. She is inspired by mostly non-jewelry things: good package design, poster art, old marimekko patterns, William Morris wallpapers, scandinavian folk art, prefab housing, old book covers, vintage signage - pretty much anything made before 1975. In real life she is a graphic/package designer and the things she loves in graphic design - flat color, patterning, unusual color combinations - show up in her jewelry work. Natalie particularly likes to work in polymer clay, which gives her an opportunity to make completely unique jewelry elements from scratch. The medium lends itself to abstract florals and flat, graphic patterns like woodgrain. She layers it almost like paint, often very precisely and geometrically, but in flattening and finishing a piece, the nature of the clay takes over and the end results are unpredictable and very interesting.
