Jewellery Sneak Peek

Thursday March 15th, 2012, 2 years, 6 months and 1 week ago


I thought I’d show you what I’m making today. Here are some pieces from a range of jewellery destined for my shop, waiting to be sealed within resin & made all shiny & gem-like. I’ve already shown you this bracelet from my folk art inspired range, these blue & white designs are influenced (as you might have guessed!) by Delftware. I wanted to do a woodland theme, but not the usual suspects such as bears & rabbits. I finished the swan the other day (I’m quite happy with it!) & I’m currently drawing weasels for yet another addition to The Woodlanders range. You might have noticed the little weasel I drew for this calendar – I thought he was so cute I just knew another weasel would pop up soon enough. These pieces are quite large – 55x43mm (2.15×1.7 inches) – & I’m making them into pendants & cuff bracelets (the little hearts top-right are for matching rings). I like larger jewellery myself, but I’m also making some dainty-sized pieces too. I’ve had friends & family road testing my jewellery for about a year now, & it’s great to see it stand up to the rigors of every day wear & tear such as grabby toddlers. Nicest of all is hearing reports back of the compliments my jewellery has received!

      I love limited colour palettes so it was only a matter of time before I attempted blue & white. Thanks Kat!

      I just wandered over to your blog to see what you’ve been up to lately, & I absolutely love that sweet little girl amongst the flowers. Pale green is one of my favourite colours.

      Thank you Joy! I particularly like the bracelet myself & think I’ll make myself one with either the swan or moth – I still can’t decide.
