Glass bead making practice and life experience come together in my latest colour collection, Resilience. The beads for this collection are hand blown making for very light weight earrings. Each hollow bead is decorated with the random application of frit (small pieces of glass). The frit represents all those events that life throws at us that we absorb and reshape in a show of our resilience. The Resilience hollow beads are suspended from sterling silver earrings that I have designed and hand made.
I will be donating 10% of the sale of each piece from the Resilience Collection to the Hunter Women's Centre, which has been here for the women of the Hunter for over 40 years.
Length from the top of the earring hook - 5.5cm
Bead width - 1.5cm
