Aegean agenda

Posted on: Thursday, September 18, 2014

I must confess that my Aegean necklace and earrings are pieces I designed a while ago. I love them and sold quite a few sets last year at the Country Living Fair in Harrogate, but never actually got them online.

So I have had these pieces on my list a little while, but I’ve been struggling with lighting some of my pieces to take the kinds of pictures I want – the kind that make them look as lovely as they do when they are in my hand, but I think I am finally getting there.

So, here is the Aegean necklace. I have used these gorgeous tear drop shaped chrysocolla beads which come in an amazing range of greeny-turquoisy shades. For this reason, I make each necklace have a graduation from the paler greens to the stronger turquoises, to ensure that you will receive a necklace that looks pretty much like this one.

The matching Aegean earrings are long, but also dainty, and I have used a seed pearl to contrast with the turquoise shades. Because of the variance on the stones, I can guarantee a closely matched pair, but their shade may be at the darker or lighter end. If you have a preference, you can just let me know when ordering which shade you would prefer.

I’m really pleased with this design, I hope you like it!

Your feedback please & a blog giveaway!

rachel lucie art print products


As a customer of mine, or reader of my blog, I’d be really ever so grateful if you could give me some feedback on a new direction I am currently working behind the scenes to launch. You can see some examples above.

During the years of developing my jewellery business for selling online, I have enjoyed equally both designing jewellery, and photographing it too. I’ve been crawling around snapping pictures of the things that inspire me, and have particularly loved capturing the things in nature that I really love. Flowers, bugs, forgotten corners of our industrial past. I love it when nature claims back a bit of our past, or the increasing beauty you see when you get closer to plants and flowers.

Now, I want to share my photography and sell it via a new website (which will run alongside my current one – no need for technical details at this stage). This is where you come in as I know you have liked or even bought my jewellery, and I really value your opinion.

My nature prints could be available as:

high quality prints (framed or unframed)
phone cases
ipad/tablet cases


So with no obligation to purchase - at all – it would be great if you could fill in the following questionnaire. There are only 5 questions!

(survey now closed)

This will let me know which of products I’m developing below are something you would consider buying often, occasionally, or whether they are not something you are interested in at all. If they sound like something you might buy, are they something you would buy as a gift, for yourself or possibly both?

For anyone who leaves a comment below I will automatically enter you into a prize draw to win a £20 gift voucher for You will need to include your email address so I can contact you (this will not be shared), so that I can get in touch if you are the lucky winner!

I will announce the winner – drawn at random – on Friday 27th June.

Thanks in advance, and good luck :)
