{ PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: Firstly let me apologise – I discovered yesterday that my blog had been down for 2 days, so sorry if you had been clicking and thought I had disappeared! I traced the problem to a plugin called ‘Autoptimize’ which had ‘auto-optimized’ itself by updating, and had broken my blog }


spring handmade jewellery


As far as I am concerned, Spring has sprung. No matter what the weather throws at us now, I’m full steam ahead for Springtime, and that’s that. I’ve been working on my new collection for Spring/Summer, and busy added some of the new products during the week. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, or read my last post you might have seen a few hints about them, already. There are more pieces to add, so please bear with!

My new collection is called Aura, and it’s a very clean collection based around simple designs, often featuring my new passion – brass, along with marbled stones, oxidized silver and strong colour combinations. If you pushed me to explain it, I would describe it as inspired by Art Deco architecture, and the new trend for marble and brass which I am seeing in homewares but perhaps it would be best if I let you browse and form your own conclusions. Ideas and inspirations are so hard to pin down, don’t you think?

Thanks to the wonders of Shopify, who provide the ecommerce side of my website, I can now share the Aura Collection live here – and you can buy straight from my blog. How neat is that?



If you have any questions, do let me know.

Also, I have given the website a spring spruce up, so do take a little look. I am still adding products to the Alchemy and other collections, so if you want to know what’s else is new, simply try out my new menu, and click on *New* for my latest handmade jewellery goodness.
