Here’s some of my new Autumn / Winter collection.
Very simple designs with amethyst, aventurine, rose quartz and grossular garnet ‘rondelle’ beads which I must admit I have been collecting together like a magpie from all different places. I love to bring together things from lots of places to make something new.
Playing around with the colours of the semi-precious gems I had collected, I realised I just had to combine them, and really love these colours together.
As you can see, I have used the theme to create earrings, a pendant and also a necklace. All the metal parts are sterling silver, as always.
I have just discovered sterling silver ‘beading chain’ and really love the way it falls and it’s delicate effect. I decided to thread beads straight onto it and create chain that way.
It adds great movement, and a really casual look which I can see looking great with layered long sleeved tees and knits as the weather draws in. I made myself one (in another colour-way which I’ll show you soon) and it’s really tactile!
The colours are loosely inspired by the current Pantone colour trends for Autumn / Winter, and I these particular ones remind me of the Western Isles in Scotland on a misty Autumnal morning. I hope they prove to be versatile to add to many different outfits this fall.
