‘Versa-tile’ cane earrings

‘Versa-tile’ cane earrings

I am playing with my ‘versa-tile‘ cane as I prepare to teach it in a workshop at the Euro Clay Carnival in Rome from the 2-4th February 2019. Here are my latest statement earrings. I split the oval to add some movement. There is an earring stud in the top part and it’s connected with some oxidised silver jump rings so the bottom part dangles. They are large – 6cm long – but light and comfortable to wear. I’ve...

Big, bold and colourful earring fun!

Big, bold and colourful earring fun!

Here are some of my latest earrings. Small studs and some larger dangles. I made one big cane that started out round. It was about 10cm in diameter when finished it.

Bright Flowers – a new set

Bright Flowers – a new set

The weather here in the UK is horrible today so I have tried to cheer things up with these bright flowers   These are slightly different from my normal flat flower pendants as they are slightly curved and each petal slightly cupped. They also have a dimension centre which looks like little tubes but is actually just little sticks of clay (adhered with the wonderful Kato polypaste) that I poke a pin into to give the illusion of being hollow. I...

Black and Grey Flowers

Black and Grey Flowers

A good friend of mine was making a new dress to wear to a wedding – so I offered to make her some new jewellery to match. It turned out just beautiful! Here it is If you are familiar with the polymer clay work of Ayelet you will notice my inspiration! I made the grey beads and textured them with salt, they match the colour of the dress.
