Rethreads

Posted on: Monday, March 12, 2012

A couple of phone snaps of necklace rethreads I’ve done recently.

A lovely long amber-chip necklace. Not something I normally work with, but amber has a pleasing warmth and lightness. I have rethreaded using steel wire and sterling silver findings.

Red coral necklace rethread, for the same customer. This is quite heavy, so I have used 2 strands of the steel thread, again with sterling silver findings. 
I also have a friend coming tomorrow with an assortment of single earrings, beads and other ‘jewellery box graveyard’ items that were too lovely to throw away – I’m excited to see what I can make with those!

BCTF preparations

Posted on: Sunday, March 11, 2012

I’ve been designing all my business cards and postcards for the British Craft Trade Fair (15th-17th April) over the last few days.

My promotional postcard, featuring my new mannequin and a new design (more in the mannequin later):

My updated business card, front and back:

Notice the strange black and white QR code? I created one in a fit of nerdness to go on all my literature. If you are not familiar with them, you can them with a smart phone and it takes you straight to my website. I love that kind of thing!
I’m finishing off my other new jewellery designs and collecting the items I want to use for display, it’s all very exciting and I seem to be just as nervous as last year!
More updates soon :)
