Dulce et Decorum Est

It's been a busy week - the weekend past was our Very Nice Group charity auction in aid of The British Legion, for Remembrance Sunday. I made two pairs of earrings to offer, very different from each other.
The first pair are more traditional 'Poppy Day' earrings - glossy lampwork poppies by Jacky Alty, paired with lilac enamel drops by Kaz Baildon - you can just see those tiny poppies at the bottom.

The second, darker and more brutal, 'The Wasteland' - to depict the twisted metal of the battlefield.

Here, proprietory black metal connectors are matched with blackened copper leaves by Bernie Ryman, fab chain that just happens to be half copper and half black, and tiny Picasso glass drops.
Happy to say both pairs sold, and together we raised over £300 for the veterans.
  I'll be back in two weeks, with new work I hope!
