New earrings - sea pottery

Since we are about to move to a place many many miles away from the sea, I fancied making myself a pair of earrings out of sea-washed pottery. And after some time spent sifting through shrimpy stones for the pottery, and old jewellery for the right sort of earring post, this is the result:

I'm not expecting any jewellery-making prizes - this is the first time I've tried making earrings, and my hands are most definitely not designed for fiddly jobs (including taking photos that are in focus). But they are for me, and I like them. I think I might try and find some more posts with a flat surface more suitable for gluing pottery onto, and make some more.
