I have been suffering from crippling hay fever this week, so I still haven’t finished the vessel I’m working on. Sculpting and constant sneezing are not compatible. I have added another layer, but I will spare you more work in progress pictures for week 25. Instead I have a pair of black and gold earrings that I made from scrap polymer clay.

Grace Jones Earrings by Cate van Alphen

They are pretty chunky and retro. As I made them I pictured Grace Jones wearing them in the 80s. I think the long triangles reminded me of her chiseled cheek bones.

I also worked on a necklace for the Art Bead Scene monthly challenge, but I’ll save that for another post. There isn’t much month left, so I’ll try to finish that anon!
