One of the joys of making my own beads is being able to make just the right thing for a particular design. Other times, I just make things that I think could be useful - shapes and sizes that I often find myself using. The little yellow discs in these earrings are an example of this.

I made a number of pairs and when I came to use these ceramic droppers, which I also made, these sunny yellow discs were just the thing.  Added to the geometric antique silver connectors, they give the earrings a graphic, mid-century look that is very much my bag.  They're listed here in my Etsy shop.

Whilst I'm here, a quick reminder: tomorrow is they day of this month's We're All Ears challenge blog hop. Head here for the details. There's still time to take part!

Bye for now, Claire


  1. Very architectural and beautiful!! Nicely done Claire!!

  2. Super cool! I'd wear these often!

  3. Love your ceramic drops! And what a perfect name for these! Love them!

  4. It seems your talent has no end. Beautiful, the beads and what you created with them.

  5. Very cool design. I agree, very 50's.

  6. Oh yes, that pop of yellow is perfect for these. I often find it hard to work yellow into jewelry designs, but these really sing. Beautifully done.
