My Blue pottery - inspired earrings
In my earlier post , I had mentioned the earrings that were featured, inspired by Blue pottery of Jaipur. So here they are ..!! The decided to use the cold porcelain without tinting . The first pair of earrings, I decided to shape into long , but fairly similar shards of pottery . I kept them white and just drew the cobalt blue designs that are predominant on white pottery.. similar designs on corresponding sides . Here the earrings above show one view of each side . The next pair of earrings are made of short , squat beads, that are cylindrical in shape and formed by hand. These are colored with a vague floral motif , but mimic the blue, yellow and hints of black. I used small white discs to give a lift and multi-faceted , double shaded beads below. The ear hooks are German silver. Tried out a new varnish..sadly it had a very light tint of yellow. So the pristine white of the cold porcelain does look a bit marred in the first pair. Have to keep that in mind next time..
