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.

  6. 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
