Earrings X 3

P1640002

You will have to bear with me over the next week or so. I had a wonderful batch of earrings come out the kiln today and I must share them with you all, so I will be inundating the blog with earrings for a while. This is the first trio that I completed today.

Above is a new design of which I made several variations.

This is an older design that I haven't used in quite some time. I'm not sure why since it is so beautiful and looks especially wonderful left unglazed with only black to bring out the design. I am so obsessed with unglazed porcelain at the moment.

This lovely little birdy pair is part of the light bulb moment I had last week. I have made a pendant with this design for several years and it only JUST occurred to me how I could isolate the bird and make it into earrings. Seriously. That is why it went from being an Ah-ha moment to a Duh(!) moment in a just a matter of seconds.

Ah, live and learn...

Anyhoo, I will be putting all three pairs in the Etsy shop in the morning. AND, I will be posting an Extra shop preview tomorrow as well. And let me tell you... this batch is a real humdinger! So much pretty stuff I can hardly stand it. I am going to be updating the Extra shop on Wednesday. :)

Oh, Nancy! I love these pieces!!

(Do you even consider selling these as charms and pendants, as parts for my own jewelry?)

Little birdy looks so tranquil. Very nice.

You're so talented! (Sigh) Wish I had a clue how to do something, but even if I did, I usually never finish the things I start. Oh well, I'll just admire your work!
