Happy New Year!

So, another new year begins! As I type this, there are only a couple of hours left of 2017, and I am struck (as I always am on New Year's Eve) how quickly time passes, and another year is over. But there's definitely something quite appealing about new beginnings isn't there? A fresh start, an opportunity to do things differently. To be better, kinder, healthier etc etc. And only a few more months of Winter here before Spring starts to make an appearance.

And so I've been pondering on that theme -freshness, newness. I found these rather stunning ceramic leaf droppers by everyone's favourite ceramic artist Petra Carpreau. I love the varied shades of green in these, and the bronze accents


I wanted to pick up on the gorgeous colors in the glaze on these leaf droppers, so added some pretty green Greek ceramic spacers and layered them with some very lovely coppery textured jump rings from Smitten Beads.

A simple, rather rustic design to bring in the New Year, but I hope you like them. They'll be available in my next showcase over on The Jewellery Show on Facebook at the end of the month.

It just remains for me to wish you a very happy, healthy and creative 2018!
