All my earrings are hand sculpted from polymer clay without the use of molds.

Earrings based on the berries that grow on the tundra in my part of Alaska.

Salmonberries (the big orange raspberries like berries)
Blueberries
Cranberries
Raspberries
Blackberries (not same as black raspberry type berries, these are round like blueberries)

Fireweed flowers which are common throughout Alaska

The orange triangle things are salmon dryfish, which in the summer is another common sight in western Alaska. Dryfish is sort of like fish jerkey. The salmon is filleted with the skin and tail attached (so that it is able to be hung to dry), then it is salted then hung to dry for a few days before it is smoked, it's pretty tasty.

I wasn't able to get close up pictures of all my earrings, since my mom commandeered a bunch of them to show to her coworkers, and has yet to return them Tongue
