Behind the Scenes

I use Instagram to document my working process and my feed is full of behind the scenes photos and video of me at work at the bench. So if you like to be nosey and take a regular peek into my studio and see me at work, then Instagram is the place to be…

Did you know that the tail of a whale is like a human fingerprint? You can identify individual whales through the patterns, shapes and textures of their flukes.
.
I started making whale tale necklets after a few humpbacks appeared in the Firth of Forth a few years ago. Being able to see whales swimming past your house on a daily basis is one of the wonders of living on a cliff!
.
They returned each year for a few years and we became the whale a watching capital of Fife. Sadly there have been no sightings this year, but I do hope that whales will return. They are the most magnificent creatures.
.
I have a few whale tails in stock - this one, pictures worn, is in my LTD collection and the others are in their own category. To mirror nature, they are each unique.
.
Hallmarked at Edinburgh Assay Office, they are all made from sterling silver teaspoons.
.
This weekend you can get 10% off at the checkout with the code TEAGREENWINTER. This offer is open now and active until midnight on Sunday.
.
I also do Gift Vouchers, in case you didn't know (these are exempt from the 10% offer however) which are a great present to give to someone who loves my jewellery. You can get £25, £50, £75 and £100. I print them onto greetings cards and can post them direct to the recipient with a personalised message.

Are you ready for some Christmas Gift ideas?
.
I'm going to adding a few extra posts to my grid today and over the weekend for the #TeaGreenMaketplace that I'm taking part in for the first time. I'll post up lots of gift ideas for you to get you in the mood, hopefully, for some festive shopping.
.
First up are my Top Brass Lapel Pins. There are 8 designs in total, with a few variations here and there, like the Pacman Ghosts and the Fancy Pants. You can even get a personalised version of these with an initial - do you know anyone in need of their of little pair of Lucky Pants?
.
They retail at £16 each and this weekend, you can get 10% off in my online shop with TEAGREENWINTER.
.
They're all hand cut and hand stamped by me from industry offcuts of brass - someone else's waste that I have salvaged and transformed. They are shipped on small printed cards and unfortunately I can't find an image of these right now, but will take some snaps over the weekend and post them into my Instagram Stories.

Would you believe me if I told you this pendant was made from a few old spoons? It's hard to believe as there is nothing 'spoony' about this pendant now.
.
If you swipe you'll see a photo of one of the spoons in question. Now do you believe me?
.
The antique sterling silver teaspoons behind this pendant have one of the most gorgeous designs I've ever come across. A birds nest containing three chicks being fed. The nest is surrounded by ivy, a motif that is repeated along the dainty stems.
.
This is one of a the many pieces I'm showcasing in the run up to the Tea Green Marketplace happening this weekend. It'll be a great opportunity to start your Christmas shopping - we have been advised to start early this year!
.
There are 142 exhibitors taking part from all corners of Scotland and covering a hugely diverse selection of products!
.
So get ready to get cosy and shop in your pjs from the best selection of Scotland based creatives with extra good vibes because you are helping a small business survive and thrive! 🙂
