My Charleston earrings have proved a very popular design, so I decided to create a bracelet to match this season. The Charleston design uses beautiful smoky quartz tetrahedrons (indeed!), 8mm for the earrings and now 10mm for the bracelet to make it a little more substantial.

I love the way these beads play with the light. For the earrings I have made sure all attention is focussed on that bead by using a long elegant ear wire which I hand-shape for each pair from sterling silver. The bracelet is interspersed between beads with oval links.

I decided to reshoot the pictures of the earrings, to go with the new bracelet, I hope you like the results. I have been really struggling for light to take good pictures this week…winter is here!

You can find this design currently in the wonderful Heart Gallery, Hebden Bridge, along with other designs from my new Speakeasy Collection, as well as my handmade jewellery website
