Last year I made a batch of safety pin drop earrings using gold safety pins with green and bronze rocaille beads. These earrings were popular with customers, so I’ve made some more, in several new colour schemes: red, peacock blue, and multicoloured.
On a website I set up specifically to provide nice things and gifts for viola players, I now have a few pieces of viola-player jewellery – the alto clef CGDA jigsaw necklace mentioned in a previous post, and also a range of alto clef earrings in the three different colours.
Here is my favourite, the green version (photographed on my favourite marbled paper background):
These are made with solid sterling silver mounts, and glass tiles covering the little alto clef pictures underneath. They measure just 8mm across. So if you’re stuck for gift ideas for the (pierced) violist in your life, you now know where to go. (It’s here, in case you hadn’t clicked on any of the other links in this post yet…)
