I wanted to do a collection that represents all seasons. I wanted all the accessories in the collection to have one item in common, so I decided to emboss a tree on each of them.
So far, there are 4 rings and one necklace, but I will soon add more.
Take a peek:
The Vintage Autumn Tree
I also made a necklace to match.
The Vintage Autumn Tree Necklace
The Hot Summer Tree Ring
The Green Happy Spring Tree Ring
The Metallic Winter Tree Ring
These are all made of clay, handpainted and gloss varnished.

This ring completes my Tea for Two Collection. It looks like a bubble and it’s pink, girly and fun!
For the fancy cup of tea at 5 o’clock, you must wear something to match the occasion! This ring is non pretentious and goes well with your pink cardigan, your mohair sweater or even your leather jacket. Sure, you can wear it with a fancy dress, too, but let’s keep it for more casual times, shall we?
Made of clay, painted with acrylics and varnished (two coats of gloss varnish), this item is ENTIRELY handmade and unique.
Diameter of the marble: 2 cms
The ring is adjustable. Its actual diameter is of 1.8 cms.
PS: Tomorrow I’ll be posting something about this little collection I finished yesterday:
I listed these yesterday but I really wanted to show these to you.
There is not a lot of handwork involved in here, yet I managed to pull off the most elegant stuff I’ve ever made.
I started working on my crafts again, yayy! The sad fact is that I know nobody around here and there are absolutely no craft fairs I am aware of, so I may just be working in vain, haha.
Anyway, it feels relaxing to craft, so here goes: my new necklace and later I will post a pair of Swarowski earrings I like.
The Rain, Rain, Go Away Necklace
Made of clay, painted with acrylics and varnished (two coats of gloss varnish on each side), this item cannot be reproduced. It also has small precious marbles to give it a bit more elegance. The tree and umbrella are small embellishments I have bought from a local shop.
It can either be a choker or a necklace that hangs lower on your chest, as it has an extra chain that gives it length at the back. For best impact wear a large cleveage, simple blouse.
It measures 40 cms without the small adjustable chain. The chain measures 12.50 cms, so the whole necklace can measure anything between 40 cms to 52.50 cms.
My inspiration was the weather out here. Horrible! Well, I can’t actually really complain, as this autumn was waaay better than summer. At least we had more sunny days. Oh, well.
I had to make something more wearable! Just had to.
So I moulded two clay marbles, painted them all black and white inked a peacock. Then I painted two leaves I’ve bought at the Saturday market and attached them to the marbles. I think they really resemble a peacock’s tail, as they’re painted with an iridiscent color.
Wear these on a night out or with a hippie outfit.
Each earring measures 3.7 cms without its bail and 5.3 cms bail included.
If you liked the necklace I posted yesterday, you will love this one.
Made of clay marbles (painted with acrylics and varnished by hand), the Tea For Two Bracelet measures 21.5 cms, but it can be shortened or lenghtened to suit your wrist.
The two Rose marbles are japanese Tensha marbles and I think they add a more elegant touch to the entire item.
This bracelet contains vintage findings.
Bare in mind that this piece is absolutely unique and cannot be reproduced.
My sister-in-law was around this weekend and gave me some ideas. They were actually pretty obvious, but I feared they were cliches. For example, some Five O’clock Tea inspired items.
That’s how the Tea For Two Necklace was born. I had each of the items ready for some time but just did not know what to do with them.
So I put them together in this extremely girly item which even I (not an extreme lover of pink, thank you) love.
The necklace itself (without ribbons, just the marble ensembe) measures 16 cms. It is 140 cms long with ribbons, so you can also wear it as a fashion accessory around your waist.
This item is entirely hand made.
Materials I used: clay, acrylics, gloss varnish
PS: I will be posting more frequently on this blog, so stay tunned.
