The Same Yet Different

I managed to forget to post last month, in my scatty way, so it seems right to share two pairs of earrings today. Not so long ago I got some beautiful porcelain discs from Emma Louise Wilson. They varied in size but I was set on using at least some of them in earrings. Then I remembered this long, long hoarded set of similarly proportioned discs that I got from Grey Bird Studio, so I set about matching discs from the two sets. Here's what I made....



As the discs were slightly mismatched, I carried this through to the other elements. The colours from the discs are picked up in the accenting beads, and the shapes - or outlines - are also matched, but the parts used to create the matched shapes are themselves mismatched.  The first pair has sold; the second is available on Etsy.

Bye for now, Claire

  1. As always gorgeous earrings Claire. I never seem to manage asymmetrical earrings. You are a master. Here the asymmetry is very subtle. The subtle colors in these are wonderful as well.

  6. What a brilliant idea! And what fab, earrings, Claire! I love how your "supporting cast" beads accented the colors in the disks so subtly but so specifically. Also love the gentle wash of the colors. Yum! xoxo

  7. I love both pairs, Claire! And I love the path you followed to get there. Ya know how some things just look as if they "came to be" all by themselves, as if effortless? If you know what I mean. Of course I know they're never effortless, but the end result is so just right that it appears to be; that they came into existence fully formed! :) I hope you understand what I mean. It is the hugest compliment; I just haven't yet figured out the right way to say it. <3
