Ancient Roman Blue Glass Bangles...

...can lead to so many things...
Accents on earrings made from hammered copper ovals
and vintage blue and white plate shards, for example!

The blue Roman glass didn't make it into this pair
 but the Karen Sacks tiny pottery shards
make a lasting impression on their own.

These plate shards were from a European collectible dish
and sent to me by Emily Cohen, all ready to go -
The ancient Roman Blue glass bangles
 make the perfect companion here,

As well as with these reversible scroddled ceramic discs
in their own subtle blue hues...

These discs make a statement of their own
as they dangle from simple brushed copper rings!


REVERSIBLE Clay Sculptural Earrings

I really love seeing earrings which look good both 
coming and going...

They can be worn either way as well by simply
inserting them in the ear lobe front to back...
or back to front!

The examples here are all made from stoneware clay,
unglazed and open to accept aromatherapy oils...

The sculptural aspect just happened when I discovered
leftover clay pieces on my work table.

They were so interesting I couldn't throw them away...

So this is what they became!
