Today, we have relaunched our jewellery range on the website. It still shows some of the old favourites but largely, it is a new selection of totally different designs. I am so pleased with the way they have turned out and I really hope that you like them too. I have had brilliant winter in the studio learning new techniques and designing these pieces. By the way, I say ‘I’ because Rich doesn’t make jewellery – not really his thing.
Some of the pieces were experimental, prototypes if you like. This peacock for example:
I absolutely love this, so much so that I have commandeered it for myself but although I love it, there are things I would do slightly differently with the next one, which will be for sale. This is not a small piece but I think that something so dramatic needs to be bigger and to be honest, you would lose a lot of the detail if it was any smaller.
Some of the techniques I have learned and adapted I can use in other pieces too. Take this mini round dish:
It is made in the same way as the peacock pendant. This piece isn’t for sale as I made it for my lovely mum for her birthday. (Poor Mum, she gets glass most birthdays but the way I look at it, I didn’t paint any pictures at junior school which she had to display on her fridge so she’s just getting it all now.)
I will be back with an update in the next week or so……until then, please take a look at the jewellery!
