new porcelain earnings just put together last night…love having small projects that fit between big throwing sessions and firings
recycling, a furnace, melting, polishing, cutting, shaping, etching, am I in heaven or what?
porcelain beads and fish are pieced with sterling silver handmade findings, cuttlefish cast ring pieces, handcut and engraved earings.
does involve some new silver, silver wire and recycled glass beads.
was given some old pieces of copper that have sparked a different approach in thinking about metal…. sterling silver has always been my favourite. it’s speaking to me about scraps of metal, the dump, industrial textures, old surfaces.

during the week before christmas busyness these earings were happening… oxidised sterling silver… perfect present for a person downsizing their possessions before travel…

Mini mark making on porcelain pieces turned into earings with handmade sterling silver ‘findings’ or hooks…working in a change of scale, alternating methods of working stimulate ideas and process.
