‘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...

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...

Faux wooden Heart

Faux wooden Heart

I’m not generally big on hearts but I couldn’t resist adapting my faux marquetry split pebble design into a heart. It’s very tactile too as I have finished it with a beautiful satin finish. I am still very fond of the faux marquetry, I ought to make some more pieces!   Thank you to everyone who took part on my earring giveaway on Instagram.  The winners were bluemallee and Nevenka...
