Ceramic jewellery and a Visit to China Clay

My stock of ceramic jewellery is getting a little low so with the weather still being hot and dry here I am putting together some new pieces... just can't face going out into the heat to clean the studio and start wedging clay..  cooler weather on the horizon though...

Here is some of my sold stock:
Brooches - mostly sold

Bracelet - sold

Blue butterfly pendant with glass beads - sold

I'm trying a different style
some beading going on

I am using braided linen thread for this necklace and will be trying some ear-rings for the orange drops at the back there...

Today was a great Treat..  I was able to visit the lovely ceramic gallery shop called China Clay run by Cath Fogarty at Clovelly, a beach side suburb of Sydney, not far from Bondi.

I managed not to drool ... not easy when surrounded by the most beautiful ceramics by so many of my favourite makers.. with permission from Cath, here are some images for you to appreciate too... please be sure to acknowledge the maker if you share any of these images..

As you can see this space is well worth the trip so do spread the word, take your friends to visit the gallery and then have a swim at the beach which has an ocean pool.. or just enjoy and buy yourself a gift to take home.

I'll be linking this post over to Sunday Ceramics and also to my Facebook page: Anna's Ceramics

Your jewelry is looking great, love the use of the braided linen; what a nice trip you had, my sister in law lives in Perth. She used to be a clay artist but now she paints.

Thanks For linking up again Anna. Every time I look at the red heart brooch of yours that I own I smile. And I will put China Clay on my list of places to visit next time I am in Sydney.

Hi Linda
If you ever visit your sister in law in Perth I can give you some clay contacts over that way to visit and of course if you also managed to get to Sydney wouldn't it be great to meet up!

Thanks Midori

Yes Kim, you should definitely go there if you are up! Oh that's nice that the red heart makes you smile :)
