‘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.

They are large – 6cm long – but light and comfortable to wear. I’ve...

I am not quite sure what made me use the pink – it really isn’t my favourite as you will probably know if you’ve seen my other work! But I think it...

I’ve been looking at some repeated patterns made with carved block printing recently so took inspiration from them for the cane.

The heart motif was central and I considered making the middle of the heart the line of symmetry in my cane...
