So, rather excitingly (and not a little scarily) the boy and I have bought a house. This means that I have not been working on much new stuff over the past few months, as said house is a bit of a wreck and has required all of my attention to get it to a habitable state before we moved in.

Also, moving to a new area in London has meant that I’ve had to find a new studio. The one I’m moving into hasn’t quite finished building works yet, but I think I’ve found a temporary studio space until then. I’m going to have a look at it next week, so fingers crossed I’ll be properly up and running again soon…

It was Mum’s birthday recently, so we all went off to afternoon tea at the Ritz, which was amazing! The boy and I have been before, but Mum and Dad have never been.

I also made a necklace for the birthday girl, with lots of beaded chain, a new design of clasp I’ve been working on and some gemstone beads added in. → Read more

New website screenshot

So, after emerging broken yet triumphant from my last battle with WordPress, it turned out that I had to start again not a year later. Booooo. The company I got my last theme framework from decided to disappear from the face of the earth and no longer provide updates, so gradually bits of my site started to no longer work. → Read more

Silver roller derby skate wheel winged necklace

I started making these little wheels well over a year ago now, but I’ve finally gotten around to getting them moulded, cast and finished.

I really like these – the design is sort of made up of a combination of the many random skate wheels I still appear to be hoarding, even though I hardly ever get time to skate these days, and simplified slightly to allow them to be moulded. → Read more

Silver cloud and sun stacking rings

My (and the rest of Britain’s!) obsession with the weather continues. Some time ago now, I started making some sterling silver cloud stacking rings from my mini weather castings and I’ve finally finished them, hurrah!

Inspired by the classic BBC weather symbols, I have little clouds, with and without gemstones, a little sunshine (which is quite spiky!) and my favourite – a little grumpy thundercloud with black ruthenium plating and diamond. → Read more

Silver sapphire cabochon ring 3

I received a custom order for a simple silver ring with a large sapphire cabochon stone. I’ve been spending so much time with my shiny roller skates recently, it was really nice to do something different. → Read more

Sterling silver biscuit charms

As my shiny little Jammie Dodger turned out so well, I thought I should finally finish the other little biscuits that have been lurking for the past year, all grumpy and abandoned, on my workbench. → Read more
