100 days

Sadly this simple cowrie shell necklace went missing in the post. The moral being to use padded envelopes so that it is less obvious that there might be jewellery boxes in the envelope/parcel. I hope it has a happy home somewhere.

100 days

5beach

This is one of my favourite 100 days pieces so far. It’s a neckpiece using a piece of brass from the beach, drilled and threaded on a glass and silver bead necklace. The glass beads are from Togo and were waist beads that my daughter brought back. The colours are just right for the patina on the beach find.

Heart charm bracelet

This one has lots of hearts, a dolphin, a lucky stone with a hole and a moonstone (so it’s super suited for Valentines). Solid silver throughout and several unique charms. Pieces can be added or taken away too….

Charm bracelets

This is a silver charm bracelet that I finished for Christmas. It’s a commission for a friend with a piece from the Thames foreshore, from the beach in Fife, a witch stone from New Zealand for luck, a silver threepence and a part of an old earring. So it’s quite special, includes lucky amulets and each piece has a story. I plan to do more for Valentine’s Day.

Plantlore and jewellery making

Some lovely pieces were made by the people at my workshop yesterday, a super eye for design.

I’ve since made a couple more pairs like these earrings as I think the colour and design is good (shame about the photo)

Some of the participants busy making.

Pittenweem Arts Festival continues until Sunday, pop by and see me at Venue 53 if you are in the area.

Earring commission

I’ve finished these two pairs of Silver Darlings earrings which were commissioned by a couple of visitors to ENOS, I hope they like them. I intend to make a few more for Pittenweem Arts Festival (Venue 53). They are mother of pearl, silver and moonstones; inspired by the herring lassies who followed the silver darlings (yes those are silver herrings)
