Orchid flower earrings

I've got a market tomorrow and although I've been working on some fantastic new designs not all of these have been completed in time. Mainly the colourful stone pieces. For the first time in my jewellery career I've taken the "tomorrow is another day" approach taking the stress of me, my work and life in general. All i have to say is its amazing what lessons having a baby teaches you.

But all is not lost either....tomorrow my stand will be sporting new earring stands, and a wide range of fresh new earrings including these new orchid earrings. It will be nice to see how people react to them. I love the over sized nature of them that seem to hang precariously from the ear.

So come and tell me what you think if your in Brisbane, I'll be at the Young Designers Market, South Band, Little Stanley St.
See you there!

Angelic studs

A customer ordered these to go with her "angelica pendant", i love the way they came out and have no idea why i didn't make them before. I also took this opportunity to play around with new backgrounds for my pictures, and although i like the stark contrast of the sculptural pieces on white bleached backgrounds, i find these images more intriguing.

The twig background reminds me of some of the images i see on my walks, especially this time of year. Stark winter twigs sprouting cherry blossoms and the contrast of fragility's is beautiful.

The white background makes the pieces seem sculptural and there is a deception of size.

When i placed the paper beneath a tree in the afternoon sun the contrasting shadows were interesting but i think they may have been a bit to busy for these pieces. Perhaps if they were blackened this may have worked better.

I may have to play around a little more.
But let me know what you think any way.
