NEW ~ Luxe Collection

Posted on: Monday, April 25, 2011

I’m now uploading my brand new Luxe Collection. This has exclusive designs featuring precious and semi-precious jewels and is the collection I am most excited about at the moment! It’s a very eclectic mix, but united by using exquisite stones, or gold filled accessories. Not everything is available yet, but so far available are:

Acanthus Earrings
The gorgeous combination of pale sage green amethyst with tiny raspberry rubies works really well with the wire-wrapped silver in these earrings. I have hand-shaped the ear wires.

Socotra Jewellery
Available as Socotra earrings, necklace and bracelet, I was really inspired by the story of Dracaena or ‘Dragon’s Blood’, the source of the cinnabar pigment first brought into Europe and traded since early times from the exotic island of Socotra. If you want to know a little more about it, go to a clip from David Attenborough’s Life series here. I was quite captivated by the story, and what an amazing island.

You can see here my first designs using gold – or in this case gold-fill – which I have combined with oxidized silver to really compliment these faceted garnet drop beads.
There are more designs to be uploaded, very soon!

Addiction!

Posted on: Thursday, April 21, 2011

I love commissions, and it’s great to work with a client who knows what they want, and at the same time gives me the creative freedom to come up with the design.

Here’s something I made for a client this week, my brief was that is had to be large black freshwater pearls with an antiqued finish, made with sterling silver.

I just had to share the great feedback I got:

Hi Rachel,My beautiful bespoke bracelet arrived today and is perfect in every way. Think I need help, I’m addicted…..

NEW! Lagoon Earrings

Posted on: Thursday, April 21, 2011

I absolutely love turquoise in the summer, it really speaks to me of azure seas and holidays with beaches with white sands….

New for this summer are Lagoon Earrings. I have stacked different sizes of turquoise wheels and created a very free ornate sterling silver ear wire. They are from my Songs of the Sea Collection.

This pair sold before I got them uploaded onto my website – I will be making more as they are ordered, though!

More jewellery coming soon….!
