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!
