‘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 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...

Black and White Jewellery

Black and White Jewellery

I took part in a Facebook challenge to make a black and white cane and to make something with it. I’ve been looking at some repeated patterns made with carved block printing recently so took inspiration from them for the cane. I made a sketch of a pattern and then worked out what the most basic component would be and drew that out. The heart motif was central and I considered making the middle of the heart the line of symmetry in my cane...
