These Cherry Earrings are hand sculpted out of polymer clay. A tinfoil core is used in the middle of the earrings so that they are lighter and easier to wear. The polymer clay is solid and a sealant (clear polymer clay) is painted and baked on so the cherries appear shiny and fresh. Each pair of earrings comes with backing slides that go on the French Loop Wiring once they are in your piercing to help the earrings stay in place. These cherries look so real and tasty!
