I made these earrings a while ago, and I just realised I don’t think I’ve shown them here on my blog. They would have been a good post yesterday, for Halloween, but I’m not that organised!

Humbug earrings by Cate van Alphen

Humbug earrings by Cate van Alphen

The focal beads are polymer clay which I made earlier this year as part of my Spectrum Year. They remind me of mint humbugs. The amethyst and gold beads are Murano glass. They are on dark purple coloured copper wire which I have hammered to form a pin (I rather like the way the purple coating came off at the bottom to reveal the copper underneath).

These earrings are currently in my Etsy shop.
