Beware, this is a very image-heavy post…
There’s a little fun project I have been working on for a few weeks now, a study of lovely colourful painted, rusting, graffitied and peeling doors around the world. It even inspired me to paint the studio door this week, which is looking good! Anyway, I found and old drawing of an orange door I did in Barcelona, and I had a wee search on Pinterest to find some more. I found some gorgeous images including these…
They’re really pretty aren’t they? So they led to a sketch or two…
And after a bit of playing around, ten totally unique pairs of earrings were created! They are all made with hot glass on surgical steel backs, so they are totally hypoallergenic. The steel is attached in the flame so it is completely fused to the glass, and no glue has been used (I don’t trust glue). Its image heavy, and all of the pictures link to their listing in my online shop. At £15 each, they are a snip for a totally original piece of jewellery. I hope you like them!
I hope you like them, and have a lovely weekend!

It was brilliant, so much fun and I sold four pieces too, which was the icing on the cake!
I have been back to it today though, and have a few pairs of earrings in red and grey ramping down in the kiln, hopefully there will be some photos of them for you tomorrow.
In the meantime, a couple of photos from the opening!

This is so exciting!
The next Exhibition I will be doing opens in Edinburgh on February 3rd, at Arts Complex in Meadowbank. I will be showing my work alongside eight talented jewellers, and it runs until February 13th. It is free entry, and if you are around I think you should definitely come and see it!
Hope to see you there, I still have a lot of work to do for it!
