Earrings galore!

Well I thought I might show you some jewellery I’ve made recently….. I had neglected my own jewellery needs so these are for me.

Lovely blossom ceramic Spear bead/charms by Petra Carpreau from Scorched Earth. My own red spacer beads and handmade copper earwires, with lashings of copper wire and beads.

These ceramic beauties were made by the lovely Natalie Fletcher-Jones of Peruzi an Australian beadmaker and someone I call friend now!! She is originally from the UK so we chat about all sorts.

Back to the earrings they are set on copper with some swarovski bicone crystals wrapped around the centre and other crystals and tiny greek ceramic disks. Tiny glass pearls on top with my big hoopy earwires…. I love these and wore these last weekend but …….. one of the earwires from the big hoop beads snapped. 😔

So I’ve had to take them apart ….. grumpy face 🙁🙁🙁🙁🙁

I will show you the reincarnation when I’ve figured it out, as I think I will split them and do something separate with each half instead.

Here are a few little earrings for just general day wear for you to look at

Oh and these2017-05-09 18.45.08

Beautiful etched copper long daggers/spears with holes down one side with silver jump rings attached for a fab asymmetric style (so me!) And I’ve added chains and more of my own handmade earwires. I love the silver accents in these, I did um and arr whether to add beads to these but I think they will be very general to use with whatever colours I’m wearing this way.

 

So until next time…..

 

Thanks for popping in
