Sputtering Glimmer creates unique, handmade and small-batch polymer clay jewelry.
We’re excited to welcome Sputtering Glimmer to the Chicago Artisan Market on Saturday and Sunday, March 6-7, 2021 at Morgan MFG (401 N. Morgan St., Chicago). Discover top Chicago & Midwest artisans in food, fashion, home goods + art.
Polymer clay is extremely light weight, and the largest pair of Sputtering Glimmer earrings weigh less than half an ounce combined! You can wear the earrings all day and night without experiencing any soreness. All the earring hooks and posts are nickel free and made with hypoallergenic stainless steel unless otherwise noted.
Every single piece they make is mixed, cut, sanded, and assembled by hand. Each Sputtering Glimmer creation is given a name that is based on characters (or the actors who played them) in some of Jamie and Carmen’s favorite movies and shows. Their current line of earrings include the Art Deco collection, Botanical collection, and Everyday Dangles and Studs.
Sputtering Glimmer will work with you to create a one-of-a-kind, custom designs. (Please note: they will not recreate another artist’s design.)
The creators of Sputtering Glimmer:
Jamie and Carmen, who are opposites in just about everything, are the creators behind Sputtering Glimmer. They find their differences enrich their friendship and partnership, and they have a good laugh about it on a near daily basis.
Carmen is intrigued by horoscopes, and she convinced Jamie to sign up for an astrology app. The final line of one of the compatibility sections said, “There’s less of a spark between you two, and more of a sputtering glimmer.” After a hearty laugh, they decided this had to be the name of their business.
One of the things they do agree on is their love of clay earrings. Thanks to the pandemic, they needed something to do to help stay sane. Now clay occupies their evenings as they work to create earrings they love to wear – and hope you will too!
