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…

Call me crazy but I'm rejigging my main jewellery collection in the hope that I can get all the new and revised pieces made, photographed and into a newly designed linesheet in time for my next trade show in January.
.
.
As well as dealing with orders in the run up to Christmas and Christmas itself.
.
.
And then my tax return and trade show stand design prep to do too.
.
.
Also got to buy a new laptop and learn how to use a new operating system and associated software as I'm ditching Adobe in favour of Affinity AND I've still not got my head around Capture One, so need to squeeze that into the equation too.
.
.
I think I'm totally nuts but secretly think its achievable even though we're also thinking of getting away for some winter sun at some point too.
.
.
But look at my lovely new pieces. These revised Seashore pieces are making me smile and the rejig is going really well so far. Probably because I've been making these pieces in my head for the past year and mulling over ideas and trying out options. I've been doodling them over and over.
.
.
So when I started working on them and creating them for real, they came into being very naturally. I believe they're meant to be.
.
.
I like to wear my new pieces and try them out before launching them on the public and I must say the new Seashore drop earrings are an absolute joy. I've never been a fan of dangly earrings but I can't take these ones off. They even feel comfy when I'm wearing headphones, so that makes them a total winner in my book.
.
.
The new Seashore pendant compliments them well and will definitely match the existing seashore rings and studs as an alternative to the drops.

I introduced the Echoes collection to the world a few years ago and back then it was a tiny collection of about 6 pieces.
.
.
Over the years the collection has grown as my ideas have developed and in its current state the collection now comprises 26 pieces.
.
.
I'm about to do a bit of a cull. In order to move forwards, its necessary to rethink and revise and I've had lots of ideas on this front lately.
.
.
Some pieces are being discontinued and others are being refined and redesigned. Some pieces from the original collection are being re-imagined and re-introduced.
.
.
Today I've been working on a new interpretation of my original Seashore Drop Earrings. They were a really good seller but I never really thought they sat well next to the other Seashore pieces, so I took them out of the collection. Swipe once to see the originals.
.
.
I've come up with a sleeker method of making the earrings and if you swipe twice you'll see what the new versions look like. I much prefer this versio  and the way they are made will soon be echoed in the Seashore Pendant which will be getting a redesign next.
.
.
From now on all the Seashore pieces with comprise of just two distinct elements, juxtaposing a sandy texture with a smoother drilled surface.
