No Tea and Crumpets for Me





It is off the beaten path that we find the most interesting people, places and experiences. When we are not concerned with what everyone else is doing or wearing or eating, we are likely to discover something that would otherwise have escaped us. With a long holiday weekend coming up, maybe we should think about where everybody isn't going as our destination?

In these earthy Bohemian earrings, I use Czech glass, brass, copper and gorgeous primitive ceramic components from Petra Carpreau of Scorched Earth on Etsy. I don't know whether Petra likes tea and crumpets; I just love her work.

More Bohemian earrings here and here.

  1. Love Petra's work! These have the sort of refined grunginess that I love. Great outfit to pair them with! Crushing on those shoes! Enjoy the day. Erin

  3. What a fabulous design! I love the deep red and lime green. I love how you used Petra's spikes. I just bought a pile of her stuff too, I can't wait to get it!

  4. Love what you did with that toothy pair, Gloria!!! Gorgeous combinations with the other beads. I'm more of a gin girl, but I do like a nice crumpet!!
    xoxo :O)

    1. Thanks, Petra! I would trade the gin for a cup of dark roast coffee, but I do like a crumpet now and then.

    1. Thank you, Diana! I am always looking for unusual components, and if I can't find what I want then I try to make it myself. It helps if you have a mind that is slightly twisted and an aversion to doing the same thing twice.
