Some Earring Eye-Candy
I like the new discs I made. Well, I kind of like everything…or I probably wouldn’t make it, right? I’m still glaze challenged but getting better. I thought I’d try the new discs in an earring piece to see what I could do. WOOT WOOT! Love these earrings. The earring wires are handmade sterling silver and I oxidized them so they would match the wrapped steel. The glaze is Float Green and I guess I wasn’t expecting the green to float to the lowest point (my naive glaze experience - Float - DUH) but I sure like the way it looks because it made a natural segway into the stones at the bottom. Don’t ask me what the stones are – semi-precious something or other and I know I paid a too much for them but they sure match well with the glaze.
I'll have some of those discs for sale next week in my Etsy shop in a variety of colors. And I like them so I'll be making more as soon as the clay is out again. If you have a color request let me know and I'll work it into the mix even though it will be a few weeks before they're done.
