Recently I have had the pleasure to collaborate with Hughsie Sisters to design a pair of clay dangle earrings! This particular collaboration is a special one as the founder and creator of Hughsie Sisters is actually a close friend of mine, Nicole Hughes.
How did we meet?
I worked with Nicole during her time here in Melbourne, but she is now back in her hometown Toronto and running this business with her sister April Hughes.
What made you decide to collaborate?
We actually started our creative projects on Instagram at exactly the same time, and this was not planned either! We thought this would be a great opportunity to do something creative together, have fun and support each other’s work.
Tell me more about the earrings!
They are dangles and are handcrafted and made from clay. This particular pair, which I received below are clip-ons because I actually don’t have my ears pierced (of course this design is also available with the normal backing as well). The design is a blend of light green and a darker green, topped with gold leafing and a matching gold backing. Oh and we named it Carma!
What was the thinking behind the design?
We picked the colour green to use as a base because my name is Jade and we thought this would be quite fitting! To make it more unique, we decided to blend 2 different shades of green and adding gold leafing was a fun way to make them look more glam!
Why the name Carma?
It is a blend of my middle name Carmen and the word ‘karma’ – karma because Nicole, April and I are believers that good things will come if you have good intentions and we are all quite spiritual as well so thought it’d be fun to incorporate this aspect into the name!

Where can I go to check out other Hughsie Sisters earrings?
This collaboration meant a lot to us. Nicole and I have both put in hard work into what we are passionate about and there certainly have been challenges while pursuing our creative projects. But we are learning that no matter what challenges you go through in life, the universe has your back and things will work out.
Always make time to explore your creativity and remember to trust in your ability to create the best life that you can live.
