Extra shop update Friday, July 29th!

Porcelain Jewelry Components

I have lots of colorful pieces for you this week, starting with this fun batch of tile connectors. I've got bathroom renovation on my mind (it's kind of been on my mind for the past 15 years actually) and everything I make lately makes me think..."gee, maybe I should make tiles that look like this!"

I thought the same thing about these funky components. It would be pretty cool to make larger versions that fit together perfectly to use as a backsplash above the sink. Am I right? (Am I crazy?)

Stoneware Jewelry Components

It's been a while since I dragged out my never ending supply of dark and groggy clay. Every time I do I remember why I don't like it. And every time I do I get on my blog to tell you all how much I don't like it. Sorry about that. I'm a creature of whiny habit... Anyhoo...despite my dislike for this clay I am usually pretty happy with the end results.

I went for an embossed look on these hearts and had some fun experimenting with glazing techniques.

I kept that look going on some round and oval pendant pieces...

I especially love how this matte copper green glaze looks on this clay and the way it highlights the embossing.

I played around a little with a new shape, which I like a lot. It's very tribal and ancient looking...I could see these pieces paired with natural stone and wood beads.

Lastly I have this small batch of textured rings. Always a useful shape and they are large enough to be a focal.

So thar she blows! The update will happen in my Big Cartel shop on Friday, July 29th (two days from this very day!) at noon EST. As always, you can watch the listings as they go up on my Facebook page, right here. Hope to see you on Friday! :)

EXTRA shop update TOMORROW (that would be Thursday)

Porcelain jewelry components

There will be an Extra shop update tomorrow, Thursday, starting at noon EST.
First up are these large pendants which I have used in a my own jewelry for quite a while. It's consistently a good seller; always an eye-catcher.

These big rings will be sold in matching pairs. They would make some really cool, hoopy earrings or great rings to hang a cluster of beads from.

Fun, posy squares!

Porcelain jewelry components

These are my Piccadilly links that I made from a mold I made using a button I bought in London a while back with Lorelei. Still one of my favorite designs and it brings back some great memories of shopping like fools for buttons, ribbon and pretty much anything else we could think of. These links will be sold in matching pairs.

I made these face shards some time ago and always wanted to make them again. So here they are! They are very classical and ancient looking and I think the face adds a little unexpected element to a piece of jewelry.

Red and Teal porcelain jewelry components

I wanted to share my latest color combination obsession - red and teal. I love it! Expect to see a lot of pieces in this combo....beating a dead horse is one of my all-time favorite activities. ;)

Don't forget TOMORROW, Thursday, starting at noon EST....Extra shop update!! And to see the pieces as the go up be sure to follow on Facebook. Hope to see you there! :)
