New pieces using Elaine Ray beads

Bronze Age necklace

Bronze Age necklace
A package arrived with lots of Elaine Ray's ceramic beads. I really love the rustic and unique style of her work - you can see that hand made nature, yet she adds very slick finishes in gloss, metallic effect and punchy colour glazes.

The end of summer

Secret Garden Bracelet
fern earrings
Freckles pink earrings
As winter soon draws to a close in the Northern hemisphere, summer in Australia ends February 29. It's been a very wet summer in Sydney - more humid rainy /overcast days than sun. We Sydneysiders hate wet weather - there's been lots of grumbling. So I made some pieces that reflect nature -  the carpet of green and the flowers that describes Sydney after all this rain, and as a preview for the long anticipated spring for our northern friends. These pieces will be added to Sasha + Max stores over the next few days.
