I have added a new designs to my jewellery collections. Unusually for me, it is a single necklace, with no earrings to match.

I don’t expect people to necessarily wear jewellery in sets, but I do normally make a design have different jewellery types for versatility (so that you could buy the necklace if your ears aren’t pierced, or get the bracelet if it’s for a special birthday present, and you want to splash out).

I love the Compass necklace for it’s simplicity. The large ring is solid brass, teamed with rolled gold, and the chain is oxidized silver. I really don’t like shiny silver and gold-tones, so if I am mixing metals, the silver has to be oxidized for me. The contrasting blue stones are a faceted turquoise drop and an electric blue lapis lazuli rondelle. You can find the Compass necklace as part of my Songs of the Sea Collection.

In Art House news, I am delighted to say that my first mounted prints have arrived, and I am really pleased with how they have turned out. No pictures of them yet, as since they came through the door, the light has been terrible. I’m hoping to get that finished this week so that I can make them available. You will also find new pages appearing on the website for the Art House products, which hopefully you can easily find from the newly redesigns mmain menu.

Something that has arrived, and is available right now are these new blank notebooks. They are a great size, being A6, and the elasticated ribbon, moleskine-style, keeps all the pages together. They make a great stocking filler for that person who always makes lists, or keeps gardening notes.

You can find Water Lily here, and Seed Pod here






And lastly … some exhibitions news. I have sent off a collection of jewellery to the Platform Gallery, Clitheroe for their ‘Treat and be Treated’ Christmas exhibition. You can pop along to buy my designs, and many other lovely things until the end of January.
