All my nature notebooks have arrived, so I have taken the 3 week lead time off the website – you can order today and have them on Wednesday!

In other news, I will be getting IPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy 5, Kindle 4/Paperwhite and Ipad cases this week, along with the framed versions of my prints.

Doing a happy dance! Happy Monday, everyone :)

I have added a new designs to my jewellery collections. Unusually for me, it is a single necklace, with no earrings to match.

I don’t expect people to necessarily wear jewellery in sets, but I do normally make a design have different jewellery types for versatility (so that you could buy the necklace if your ears aren’t pierced, or get the bracelet if it’s for a special birthday present, and you want to splash out).

I love the Compass necklace for it’s simplicity. The large ring is solid brass, teamed with rolled gold, and the chain is oxidized silver. I really don’t like shiny silver and gold-tones, so if I am mixing metals, the silver has to be oxidized for me. The contrasting blue stones are a faceted turquoise drop and an electric blue lapis lazuli rondelle. You can find the Compass necklace as part of my Songs of the Sea Collection.

In Art House news, I am delighted to say that my first mounted prints have arrived, and I am really pleased with how they have turned out. No pictures of them yet, as since they came through the door, the light has been terrible. I’m hoping to get that finished this week so that I can make them available. You will also find new pages appearing on the website for the Art House products, which hopefully you can easily find from the newly redesigns mmain menu.

Something that has arrived, and is available right now are these new blank notebooks. They are a great size, being A6, and the elasticated ribbon, moleskine-style, keeps all the pages together. They make a great stocking filler for that person who always makes lists, or keeps gardening notes.

You can find Water Lily here, and Seed Pod here

And lastly … some exhibitions news. I have sent off a collection of jewellery to the Platform Gallery, Clitheroe for their ‘Treat and be Treated’ Christmas exhibition. You can pop along to buy my designs, and many other lovely things until the end of January.

The first Art House products are here!

Posted on: Wednesday, October 8, 2014

After what seems like an eternity, I am excited to share that the first of my Art House products are now on my website! I have chosen 4 of my nature photos to be the launch products, and am right in the middle of getting together proofs, samples, labels, packaging, suppliers etc to bring all the products online.

The 4 designs I have chosen to lead the way are; umbellifera, wild garlic, water lily and seed pod. These are now available as lovely greeting cards, available in my Fine Art Nature Cards Collection.

Here they are in person, so to speak:

I offer each design to be ordered in quantities of 1-4 (with a cheeky price saving for buying more, of course!) as well as an assorted pack of 4, which includes one of each design.

I also have a new jewellery collection! Called ‘Fontaine’ and featuring designs you may have seen in some of my photo shoots, I am now able to offer these designs for sale. The collection itself is not yet up and running, but you can see the first two products.

Firstly there is the Verdant necklace, which is online now, soon to be followed by the earrings. They are based on my ‘Louise’ designs, but featuring these gorgeous khaki baroque pearls. As you can see I am literally shooting products and listing them as we speak!

The second is these Levkar earrings, made with sumptuous rolled gold which contrasts so nicely with the plum pearls. They are pretty long, at 80mm, and they are gorgeous!

There is more to come as quickly as time will allow! I hope you enjoy the new products as much as I have developing and designing them :)
