I couldn’t wait for Spring

new release porcelain earrings

These new pieces have been a joy to make and remind me that Spring is almost here in the southern hemisphere. They are handmade with Lumina porcelain with a soft pastel wash to bring out the mandala style designs.  Of course, I have been taking them for a test run and they are light to wear and will set off your new Spring outfit. I hope you like them as much as I do.
