  1. The most popular items I make tend to be those that include birthstones; and especially my birthstone stacking rings

    I decided to make the birthstone stacking rings as I wanted an alternative to fingerprint jewellery, something a bit more colourful, delicate, and a little bit different. 

    The idea is that you choose the birthstones of yourself and/or your loved ones, and wear them all stacked together. A daily momento of your special people.

    One of the things I love about them is that they are so tactile, and you can mix the stack around to have a different look.  

    People have chosen all birthstone stacks, or spaced two birthstones with a 9ct gold heart, or other shape. So many possibilities.

    And the great thing is you can always add another ring to the stack at any time. :-)

    There are some examples of my favourite birthstone stacking rings sets on my gallery page.

    All of the rings are handmade by me in my home studio to your exact size requirements (it's usually a good idea to get 1/2 a size bigger than usual for sets of three or more).

    I use eco-sterling silver, which is 100% recycled sterling, to make the ring band and fine silver for the setting. 

    To add that extra personal touch I can also stamp a name, date or phrase to the inside of the ring band. Stamping is a little different to etching, and is a little more "higgledy" but is a really nice touch on handmade items. 

     

  2. Well this week has been pretty amazing for me.

    The lovely Folksy folk asked me to be their featured seller this week; which meant an interview (with pictures of me in my studio - eek!) and being featured on their front page,  newsletter, facebook page, instagram....... and everywhere else. Oh my goodness it's been fantastic.

    Are you married?

    You know that feeling on your wedding day, when it's all about you and you actually for once, well, you quite like it? (Yes I know the groom's there too, but you know what I mean)

    It's felt a bit like that. I've been getting lots of lovely attention, compliments and orders for my jewellery.

    Gosh next week is going to be a bit of a downer - back to reality and no honeymoon to go on.
