It’s very busy in RLHQ at the moment, as I am busy designing, making and uploading the new jewellery designs for summer. The new summer collection is called Fresh and features bright fun colours or pastels to create the summer feeling no matter what the UK weather throws at us. I don’t mean to sound pessimistic about the summer, but you know how it can be ;). I have also added some of my favourite best selling designs which feature the right colour palette, such as the Arran and Faroe sets, which are also perfect for summer.

Sea breeze is a charming jewellery set with cluster earrings and a charm bracelet to match (if you are so inclined). I have used gorgeous aqua-coloured amazonite tubes with buttery yellow opal beads and silver freshwater pearls.

Finisterre is a brand new striking design that I have created by combining unusual shaped kyanite and pyrite beads. It is part of my Songs of the Sea Collection, which I am updating this season, and I think is a great new addition to the collection.

It comes complete on a 41cm sterling silver spiga chain.

I have added the new colourful charm bracelet I designed last week, now called Zoetrope, and created two types of complimentary earrings. The first here, are Lido Earrings which I used the amazonite and peridot nuggets for. The nuggets are all kinds of shapes, but I will ensure you receive a similar pair.

The second pair are Funfair Earrings with the faceted lapis lazuli and pink opal pebbles.
