Shop update - a new series in the works

How funny is this clown necklace, I ask you? OK, perhaps some of you find it a little scary. I know that clowns have that power, but not his one. He is happy and harmless and the first in a series of new necklaces I am working on.

A few months ago I spent an afternoon in the studio playing around with textures and stamping clay with some vintage rings from my collection. The clown is a ring I have had for years - who knew he would inspire such a goofy necklace?

I also finished the earrings that are shown in my last blog. I paired them with handwrought oxidized sterling silver earwires and the contrast is just lovely.

Both of these items can be found in my Etsy shop. :)

That clown pendant is seriously fantastic (and I covet your vintage rings)
