I’m increasingly realising that the garden and the things that grow in it are an essential part of the jewellery that I make. I stand washing up at the sink and can see clumps of forget-me-nots, cowslips, primulas, bluebells, miniature narcissus and pulmonaria. They’re like tiny pastel fireworks. The urge to mimic their shapes in silver is very strong.
All these new pieces are in my etsy shop and I’ll be adding more in the coming weeks. The necklaces below are also made from tiny found objects, each of which has a history of its own. They are waiting in the wings for a lull between commissions before they’re popped on the shelves.
In the meantime I am happy to take orders on the knitting necklace.
In other news:
- There is still space on my silver clay workshop on Saturday 5th May. We will be making SPring-inspired fine silver jewellery. Click here to see.
- There is a knitting design competition based on The Killing running at the moment. It’s rather a tight deadline but the winning jumper may end up on the show.
