Just around the corner

A spangly new website and a new collection are just around the corner! I can't wait to show you but you will have to wait just a little bit longer... 
Today along with some admin and polishing of pieces I am awaiting a delivery of the most beautiful gemstones, and trying to come up with names for my new pieces. 
Pictured above is some shots from in and outside my workshop. I am really loving working here in my back garden even when it's torrential rain like today! I am nice and cosy thanks to my little heater and plenty of tea. 
The new website will be the first thing to launch and to be first to know about this make sure you are following on twitter and facebook.  x

On the way

Been spending my time doing some very tiny crochet for my new collection. It's all coming together nicely! Just using clean and simple double crochet for some of the pieces, loving the texture/pattern it makes. Can't wait to see how they turn out in silver!

Back to work

The end of January signalled the end of my Maternity leave and the start of a whole new working routine. I have had an amazing time spending the last seven months being a full time Mummy and hope to be able to juggle being a Mum and a full time Jeweller with not too much difficulty...time will tell, I am sure it can be done!
It is so exciting working from my new garden studio, it's got a little bit more to do to it before total completion, but it is workable in just now (above images show the progress). It's much bigger than I expected with room for my bench and tools as well as all my other making supplies, storage, table and chairs and a small sofa.  Towards the second half of this year with any luck I will be able to hold some small classes in there too!

The next few months will be spent making a new collection of textile inspired jewels, so keep tuned for sneak peeks and other exciting news...
