I’m just catching up with the flurry of new products that I made right at the end of 2013! Quite a few new designs have been launched on rachellucie.co.uk but I was so busy in November and December, I didn’t get time to shout about them!
I have been busy with ideas for my existing Songs of the Sea collection, and will be developing new designs to accompany some of the more successful jewellery pieces I already make.
New this winter is the Lundy necklace and earrings. I sourced some darling little solid brass lighthouse charms, and have combined them with a rich azure blue apatite stone and some freshwater pearls. For the earrings, I felt the brass lighthouses were a touch too big, so I’ve made a corresponding design with a rolled gold ring to echo the colours in the necklace. All the other metal is oxidized silver.
I have another design using a gorgeous little brass charm, called Seahorse. there are earrings and a necklace available on the website. Isn’t this little seahorse the sweetest?! I used green tourmaline rhodonite garnet and labradorite to accompany the little seahorse. I can imagine him hiding in the seaweed!
I only have a few of the tourmaline beads available, so I have made the earrings in 2 styles which you can choose from when ordering.
Again, the earrings don’t include the charm, but rather a rolled gold ring to pick up the colour.
Sea Shanty necklace, earrings and bracelet have always been popular, especially at Christmas and 2013 was no exception. I still have a number of the gorgeous peacock baroque pearls that really make this design left, although I am not sure I will be able to replace them again.
Cloudburst earrings with shades of grey labradorite, silver pearl and Swarovski have been another design that I am often making and I’m pleased to say that they will be around for a while yet as I am not ready to stop making them!
