Blue For You

Hello dear friends,
Todays earrings are made from a pair of lovely ceramic disks I have had in my stash for a very long time. I believe they were among the first batch of art beads I bought from Round Rabbit, aka Nancy Adams, back in 2010 or 2011. They are rather big, 3 cm diameter, but very thin, so they are super light weight.

I've assembled them with the earring hooks via some pewter square profiled rings and one of my favourite materials, waxed linen cord. I have a small box of scrap bits of cord that I just roamed around in and soon found the bits of these three perfectly matching colours.

The whole equipage comes to about 15 cm and will just barely touch the shoulders when being worn. These are a kind of everyday yet statement-kind-of earrings. A style that I myself am very fond of. I am looking forward to taking them out on their first excursion in the city any day soon.

Art Beads:
Blue rustic thin ceramic disks - Round Rabbit

 Other ingredients:
Waxed linen cord
Pewter square profiled rings
Handmade heavily oxidized sterling silver earring hooks


All my best,


  1. Oh, I do love these. The contrast between the hard, rigid ceramic disk and the soft, flexible linen cord is perfect.

  2. Lovely, Malin! I feel a beautiful breeze blowing :D

  3. Simply stunning. Always a joy to see what you create. You gave these special components a place to shine. Enjoy the day! Erin

  4. Malin, they are so joyful and will be great fun to wear, blowing in the wind. I love them! <3
