Hyacinth Blue

Sitting at my table today with the scent of hyacinths cheering up a grey day. Somehow the blue variety seem to have the most powerful scent.  Another harbinger of spring; and January is already approaching its close. So what could be better than some pretty, delicate earrings in the very same shade of blue?


 
 
The beautifully detailed, organically shaped fine porcelain pieces are by ceramic artist Emma Wilson who lives not too far from me in  northern England,  near the wonderful Lake District National Park. I have more of her work than I'd care to admit!
 
 

Not wanting to overegg the pudding, I've simply hung them with goldfill jumprings from glossy, ridged ceramic connectors by Robyn Cove and added goldfill earwires. The fine detail in Emma's work has to be seen to be believed. 

 
 
Available in my Etsy shop if you'd like a touch of Spring. 
I'll be back next week in my regular slot - so keep well until then!
 
Lindsay xx

  5. I have seen Emma's work only on my computer monitor, but it takes my breath away. There is nothing else like it out there. Good for you to have much of her work!! They are treasures, indeed. I love Robyn's connectors, too. Perfect color for the rest. And do you really have flowers blooming there already?????? That doesn't seem possible! We'll be having a good bit of snow this weekend. ;) It'll be a while before it's Spring here yet. Beautiful earrings. <3

    1. It looks so very delicate Norbel but is remarkably strong. We have snowdrops, primulas and hellebores; the hyacinths are in a pot inside. x

    2. I wouldn't have expected that. Yes, ceramic strong, but delicate nonetheless. Thank you for sharing that info. Hugs.

  7. These are so beautiful. Love the colours, textures and shapes. Love hyacinths too, although they don't hang around for long. I imagine these earrings will be the same!
