Something from my bench

Here’s a bespoke pair of earrings I made this week for a lovely customer. As a fan, like me of pale aqua greens, Abi asked me if I had any thing that colour that I could make into earrings like my smoky quartz Charleston Earrings.

I had a matched pair of crackled fluorite beads I had saved from a strand a while ago. Unfortunately, as fluorite is so easily damaged if not shipped correctly, I often find the beads unusable. The other beads on this strand were just too cracked, I felt, to make into jewellery. Abi thought they were beautiful, however, and you know what,  I wish I had kept the other beads, because the cracks look great. Live and learn!

These earrings are made with sterling silver including the hand-shaped ear wires, and make a very elegant design.

And something for myself  :)
I love the simplicity of these tiny tiny aquamarine beads wire wrapped onto this fine rolled gold chain. It’s very short – 14inches, a real choker.

I am being attracted more and more to simple design ideas like these, I am yet to feel confident that other people will feel the same.

Bye for now :)
