These are some images of a recent commission for a pair of Earrings. It’s the first time I’ve ever attempted to make matching earrings, in the Gemstone Circle Collection style.
The challenge was to keep to the asymmetric organic freeflowing style, while mirror imaging the design in the other earring
It took me two attempts and was a real challenge lol. If they hadn’t been requested I don’t think I would ever have tried to do this, and I am incredibly grateful for this – I learnt so much in this project
Anyway, I hope you like the pictures - I tried out a resin bust in a light box as part of my photography experimentations, I love it! The acrylic material looks luminous when back lit through the lighting tent – a very inspirational prop isn’t she lol?
The other pics include some taken in the backgarden with the earrings hanging off a little milk jug. The gemstones are rich coloured Rhodolite Garnets, sculpted in sterling silver

I have just sent these pieces off to the British Museum in London today. They will sit in the Grenville Gift Shop...it's all very exciting
They purchased mainly from my Goddess collection, 2 Gaia (Greek Mother Earth) necklaces, one Lakshmi( Indian Goddess of Prosperity), Venus (Roman Goddess of Love) and Athena (Greek Goddess of Wisdom and War)
I'm planning to visit the shop on one of my daytrips to London, I always pop into the British Museum anyway, just to see the Mummies lol, so can you imagine then seeing my work in the gift shop. It's like a kiddie dream come true
