I have been slowly working through taking new photos of all my jewellery. It turns out this is only slightly insane, because looking back at some of the older pieces has reminded me of things I wanted to make more of but I never got around to. I really enjoyed making long beaded earrings, so I’ve made some more.
Long rust coloured earrings by Cate van Alphen with handmade polymer clay focal beads.
Long blue dichroic glass bead earrings by Cate van Alphen.
They are on nylon beading thread so they have a nice soft drape, and it means I can include seed beads which are sometimes too small for wire or headpins.
