There are a few more items included in my charity auction that I’d like to talk about. Remember – all proceeds will go to the British Red Cross who are helping people involved in the terrible fire at Grenfell Tower.
Purple earrings by Cate van Alphen
I chose to make these purple beads into chunky earrings because the texture matched the wings of my Angel painting. They look like ceramic, but because they are made from polymer clay they are still light enough to wear as earrings.
Macramé bag charm by Cate van Alphen
This stone bead and macramé handbag charm was one of a pair of earrings, but unlike the purple leaf earrings above I was worried that they were too heavy to wear. I wasn’t quite sure what to do with them because I liked them so I didn’t really want to dismantle them . After making the love charm for the auction, I realised the weight wouldn’t be a problem if it were a bag charm.
Stone key ring by Cate van Alphen
Its partner became a key ring – just to be different.
Purple bead earrings by Cate van Alphen
I chose the next pair of earrings because they were waiting on my desk for new photographs to be taken, and because there can never be too much purple.
Bauble pendant by Cate van Alphen
This red, purple and green pendant goes with the earrings. It’s hollow polymer clay so it’s super light.
Please have a look at my other items and remember that if you do bid it will all be going to a good cause.
