First up is this lovely Silhouette brooch from Becca Williams.

I love this ceramic pendant by Anne Williams. See Anne's shop for more great pendants and brooches. I love them!

And finally, these lush violet hoops from Quercus Silver. Must say i love anything from Quercus Silver, see the rest of the shop here.

Porcelain Magnets

I'm very excited by the new brooches, magnets and earring I got out of the kiln on Tuesday. I've used a semi porcelain clay which works really well with the green glaze shown here. I've also just listed these two beatuies in my folksy shop here.

Here is a mini preview of some of the green ones laid out. I've also been testing some black, grey, blue, pink and red glazes which I'll share with you soon.
