my process for designing and making Ozzy Shop jewelry
I sketch out my design idea either on paper or on my ipad and once I'm happy with the finished draft, I gather my supplies.
After baking, I then secure my jewelry findings. I secure all earring backs by baking the pieces yet again to ensure the quality of my pieces and to extend the life of your jewelry.
I prep my materials by conditioning the clay I work with and creating my slab. I use custom made cutters or cut my shapes out by hand (which is a very tedious process)
I then hand sand and polish each and every individual piece of baked clay to soften any edges and polish the designs. I soak each piece in soapy water and attach my remaining findings.
The sanding & Polishing
Once my design is all cut, I bake my pieces to cure and bond the chemical compounds and turn my work into a solid piece.
Lastly I take photos of the designs and share them here in my little corner of the internet and you get to shop thoughtfully curated, and uniquely handmade jewelry!
