These are some of my recent favourites. I love it when you spot connections between seemingly incongruous materials and they fall into place in a fresh design.  I had made the drops with the carnelian and the grey trade beads with the orange-y bands a few days before; I was just looking for something to hang them from. Then I remembered some large orange copper hoops I got from Natalie at Grubbi.  The resin coins and the salvaged earring findings were the final additions.

They're available here in my Etsy shop.

Bye for now, Claire


  1. I agree totally with your statement about "connections between seemingly incongruous materials and they fall into place". It's a lovely feeling. And indeed this is what happened in these pretty earrings by you. :-)

  4. Those colors just beg to be together! I love imaging that you have these pieces just sitting around waiting for the inspiration to strike! These are lovely. Enjoy the day! Erin

  5. These are so cool, somehow I missed them. Love the colors and all the different components put together so beautifully!!

  6. I really love the orange / neutral combination, Claire! - it works so well. Love the story of how they sort of 'fell together'... fabulous!
