Super Seconds Festival Shout Out - Original Design Earrings
I hope all you lovely crafty bargain hunters have been limbering up, because before you know it Super Seconds Festival will be here! With 250 makers to dive into in search of handmade treasure, planning ahead is definitely key. I hope these blogs featuring just a few of the amazing folk taking part are giving you a small helping hand.
For our next maker adventure we're going down below the ocean waves and paying a visit to the wonderful world of sea glass with Original Design Earrings....
Original Design Earrings was created by Aparna, the hands and heart behind this beautifully bohemian handmade jewellery brand. Her 'hippie' style pieces are created using gorgeous natural materials like sea glass which has a unique shape and colour that she likes to enhance using wire wrapping techniques.
What is your earliest creative memory?
Breaking my least favourite pearl necklace to create a funky necklace which was loved by my friends.
What fires your imagination?
I work with sea glass to make jewellery by wire wrapping it. The unique shape and colour of each and every piece of sea glass means an opportunity to design it differently with the wire. That's what fires my creativity!
What Super Seconds deals should we look out for from you?
I will be offering a huge discount on many new design samples, some unusual pieces of sea glass jewellery and some jewellery pieces that were made about 6 months back.
The ability to breath new life into found objects like sea glass is wonderful and Aparna definitely knows how to create some truly elegant pieces that let the sea glass really shine. So if your inner mermaid is feeling the call of the sea, looking at these lovely pieces, make sure to pop over to Original Design Earrings on the 7th and 8th October during Super Seconds Festival!
