Welcome Sue - Utterly Lovely Stuff!

Hello! I’m Sue Robinson from Utterly Lovely Stuff and I’m utterly (sorry!) delighted to have been invited to do a little guest spot on Earrings Everyday! What a thrill! Especially as some of my very favourite jewellery artists contribute here.

So…I was told to create a pair of earrings especially for the blog, and tell you a little about them. This was no hardship, let me tell you as making earrings is one of my favourite things to do. 


This pair features components from one of my absolute favourite artists (whose beautiful pieces feature regularly here on EE) Petra Carpreau of Scorched Earth. I love her rustic, natural style, and think the coppery glaze on these ceramic drops is just beautiful. 

I popped these drops on some copper hoops, loosely wrapped with some pretty, coppery seed beads to pick up the orange hue in the glaze and added another favourite component - recycled glass chunks. I have a friend who goes to South Africa and picks up these recycled glass chunky beads for me from a local bead shop, so I have a plentiful supply of them! A good job as I seem to use them in lots of designs at the moment. I finished these off with some pretty enamelled headpins, made by a clever jewellery friend, Charlotte Rosser of Wild Strawberry Designs. (Link not available.)

Hope you like them! There’ll be over in my Etsy shop Utterly Lovely Stuff.

Thanks for having me!

  5. Sue, the earrings are beautiful! Of course it's the entire package, but I have to say that the shade of blue in the handmade glass beads is an extraordinary complement to Petra's drops. It creates an immediate sense of peace when I see it. And the tiny enamel headpins are the perfect accent. Great earrings! Thank you so much for joining us today. :)

  9. Hi, Sue! It's great to see you here on EE! I love these earrings. Excuse the hyperbole, but everything works together: the rough facets of the recycled glass beads complement the roundness of the copper hoops, which in turn contrast to the straight lines of Petra's gorgeous rectangles...with the little seed beads punctuating it all. I won't even start on the colors, which are awesome together. <3 I hope you'll come back again soon, as I'd love to see more! xoxo
