Monthly Challenge- Circles and Earrings

This month we took a simple design element, the circle and asked teammates to create a pair of earrings. It's always fun to see how many people can use the same design element and come up with completely different pieces from each other.  Enjoy!

I love this pattern. I call it Polka dots - but they are circles actually.

A drilled iron plate creates the pattern.

I loved working with the rainbow colors of these scallop shell beads. In these necklace and earrings, I framed the beads with hand textured sterling silver circles.

These were made in collaboration with ceramicist Emily-Kriste Wilcox. Keeping them lightweight, protective and complementary to the ceramics was an interesting challenge. I made textured silver frames which are tab set front and back and oxidised them for a charcoal finish show off the painterly glaze on the ceramics.
