Sweet bell earrings

Kate Lee Foley's see-through bell earrings on PolymerClayDaily

Australia’s Kate Lee Foley gives us sweet innocence with pastel gradations on bell earrings. Flat two-sided cutouts with curved edges wrap around and overlap to form a soft cone shape.

Circular holes cut out of the polymer let light through as the earrings dangle. Simple and sweet.

Challenges and experiments are often launching points that produce charming, quirky first efforts. Linda says she’ll add jointed knees and elbows next time.

Her prototypes may make you reconsider new interpretations of your family photos. See more of Linda on Instagram and her site.
