Colourful beaded earrings with a floral motive. I have made these earrings when in a very good mood, hence the choice of colours. It is made using Czech glass beads – Superduo and seed beads. I added a tiny bit of sparkle to the centre of the earrings for added interest.
The earring posts are nickel free with a rhodium finish, so they will cause no allergy.
The earrings are 3.6 cm’s tall with earwires, 2.9 cm’s without the earwires.

I find the world of colours enchanting, I love the thousand faces they show when combined in different ways. Texture is my other passion: the way it emphasizes the form of objects, and evokes various atmospheres.
When making jewelry I love creating objects that are noticed when worn. I strive to prepare my jewelry with the utmost attention to detail and the best craftsmanship I can achieve.
I owe my love of handmade objects to my family. My mother knitted me my first hooded sweater when I was but a few weeks old, and which I still used to sport in photos at the age of three, as she crocheted extra rows as I grew. I remember our intarsia coffee table that my father – a linguist by profession – made, complete with chess and Mills boards (on top of it an 11-kilo ash tray, he made from a 2nd World War bomb shell he had found). It was an inspiring home.
I started machine sewing when I was 12, and it is still a loved hobby. I took up jewelry making 10 years ago – I started with beading, then I went on to wire working. (Easy job: I borrowed a few tools from my husband. :-)
In a few years I started delivering courses in bead shops, and wrote 2 books on jewelry making.
As I became confident with pliers and beading needles, my imagination inspired me to further adventures: I started incorporating textiles, leather and occasionally wool in my jewelry. With this I feel I found my artistic media.
