We Three Kings

Hello! This will be my last post before Christmas. Now, if any of you have read any of my December posts, you'll know i don't really do seasonal earrings. But i was rather inspired by these gorgeous bone china, silver and enamel droppers by Petra Carpreau. I love the slightly grungy, rustic feel to them, but i think they are also rather regal (hence the topical title of this blogpost!)

Now, I recently ordered lots of spacers and bead caps, and thought I'd keep these designs simple and let Petra's beautiful work take centre stage.

This first pair (let's call them Casper) have some rather pretty vintage brass bead caps. Love the dash of sky blue and navy blue enamel pools.
I teamed these silver and green beauties with green ceramic washers and textured silver plated spacers. So, these will have to be called Balthazar (obviously).
And look at the gorgeous blue in this final pair -Melchior (stay with me on this). Just added some large holed roller beads with these, and some deep blue seed beads.
So, there we are. All available on etsy. Just remains for me to say happy holidays to you, and a peaceful. creative 2018


  1. Regal indeed :) And very very pretty. Well done Sue. For you and your loved ones a wonderful Christmas and all the best for 2018.
