Recently I’ve been tinkering with the kiln, trying out some of the colors, and seeing how it might be more effective–time management wise–to create similar pieces in batches. With every experiment I learn a little more, mostly along the lines of, “Yikes, don’t ever do that again!” I love how fine silver looks with transparent glazes, sort of like ice, but I also love the warmth of copper. One of my favorite colors is this robin’s egg blue, an opaque, shown here on these copper drops. (The backs are enameled with a speckly moss green confection.) I paired these with luminous freshwater pearls, because pearls just elevate even the most humble design, don’t you think? The settings are vintage brass, naturally nickel-free. Have I told you about my love of clip-on earrings? I do. I love them so much. Remember when we used actual phones, you know with curly cords and when you answered it, you could just pull your clip-on earring off? Kind of like a Mad Men moment. Yup! These are like that.
Wait, I’m babbling again. Anyways, do you want these? I saved them just for you.
