Rustic Charm

I decided to make a set of earrings featuring enamel components by Brumedeterre. I just love their rustic charm and fabulous colours. For the first pair I have matched the enamel charms with rustic lava free form lampwork beads by Natalya Darlin that perfectly highlight the orange and blue colours. Then, I couldn’t resist using Kerstin’s hand-beaded caps as a kind of crown, again the deep orange colour is perfect and I feel that it adds a tribal feel. To finish off I added some Czech glass beads.

For the second pair I have used these enamels, again by Brumedeterre with a fabulous daisy petal design in strikingly contrasting colours. I found the perfect lampwork beads to match, these bubble beads by Joanne Joyce and finished off by using copper beads and bead caps as a balance with the other colours.

For my final pair I chose to use these very striking enamels, again with a daisy petal design. The exposed copper on half with the use of a flower stamp is a lovely touch I think. After having a good search through my lampwork stash I found these gorgeous beads by Australian artisan Susan Clarkson which I combined with copper bead caps and spacers.

Thank you for reading, you can find my designs at Nicola Morse - Jewellery & components.


  1. Wow, really gorgeous designs. Wish I could get on for myself.

  2. Thank you very much Mary, these have sold but I will be making more with simi;ar charms x

  3. All three pairs are stunners Nicole. I so admire your use of color. You are one of the few designers I know who use bold colors and designs so well.

  4. These are just all so gorgeous, from top to bottom and back again!

  5. Wow. Truly lovely components. Thanks for introducing us all to them! I am partial to that last pair, because I think that orange is fabulous and they intrigue me with their patterns. Enjoy the day. Erin
