Spring in Mind

I know we are in the run up to Christmas but I've had enough of seasonal jewellery already! I started making for Christmas about 3 months ago and peaked last weekend so I'm now on the other side and looking forward to spring designs. My January copy of 'Vogue' arrived this morning and I've already got some new colour combinations planned.

Recently I've been excited by Helen Backhouse's venture into ceramics. I've made a few pairs of earrings which have all flown out but I saved my favourite pair for today's blog post.

The detail on these is quite incredible - the veining, the colouring. I've turned them in opposing directions for added interest.  Above the connectors are some of my favourite lampwork beads from Emma Ralph - great shapes, colours and textures - with bronze spacers from Anna Chernykh and opaque emeralds. Earwires are (of course)  by Lucy Haslam.

                   Below are chunky matte kyanite beads and tiny pieces of silvery leaf chain.

They'll be in my Etsy shop if you'd like them. And I shall be back with you all on Boxing Day - so from me and my family to you and yours - have a very Merry Christmas!

  1. Oh, these are so lovely Lindsay, I like the subtle asymmetry and the colors are soft and beautiful. Wishing you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas as well.

  2. Thank you Janine - and the same to you and your family x

  3. Oh my absolute favourite silver leaf chain- So versatile! Nothing wrong with a bit of Spring in the wintertime

  4. Love the stuff! It echoes big leaves so well. xx

  5. All the textures and patterns are really intriguing. Helen really does texture brilliantly. I love them and they are a bright spot in a dull colorless world and a reminder that spring is just around the corner! Enjoy the day! Erin
