Muted Mondays – Terracotta Jewellery

Just met a girl who absolutely loves ‘natural’ jewellery. I love silver, instead! I always thought ‘natural’ meant thread and perhaps with glass beads. This girl’s talk made me want to find out more about what jewellery made with earthy (non silver and gold, of course!) material would include. I did some research, travelled to meet owners of such kinds of jewellery (mainly, terracotta) and a couple of artists. So, here I am, presenting to you the world of gorgeous jewellery made from terracotta. Sit back, relax and browse – and if you do like them, get an exquisite piece for your collection!
