Sterling silver large iced gem necklace

It’s all been a bit hectic recently, what with preparing for the show and inexpert attempts at carpentry, but I’ve finally finished and photographed my iced gems, hurrah!

Each size gem I hand carved in wax, then sent off for casting. The tiny one made my head hurt to carve (it’s less than 1cm in diameter) but I love how it turned out – so cute! → Read more

jewellery craft show display

On Saturday I had my first ever stall at a show with the E17 Designers at the Walthamstow Garden Party. Exciting!

As always, I gave myself far too much to do and ended up working frantically all week trying to finish everything.

As I’ve never had a stall before, I had to start from scratch making a display. I may have been a little overambitious about what I could achieve in a short space of time!

Sterling silver emerald flower necklace

I was contacted by a lovely customer who was after a sunshine pendant similar to my Rain or Shine necklace, and also an emerald set flower necklace.

I made these flowers a while ago now, but I’ve been too busy with shiny things to put them up on the website yet.  Must do that soon!
