Art jewellery, made with love

It’s been a while…..

Ah, life!  Sometimes it just gets in the way of itself.  Although I haven’t been posting here I have been very busy although not with my designs.  I have been refurbishing my house so my studio has been packed away.  I have managed to get a few things done over the last few months and I am now starting to get creative again.

Nikkis Necklace


I made this piece a few months ago for a friend’s birthday.  She loved it and I enjoyed making it.  They are not my colours – they are hers, she is definitely an autumn!First Panel

Then I had to think about some Christmas gifts.  I had been inspired by a poser with a bright pink kind of sunburst (that doesn’t describe it very well I am afraid) and I made this using a 3 colour Skinner blend and transposing the colours.  Like the poster the colours are not aligned in a regular pattern and the “ends” are asymmetrical. I was very pleased with it and thought it was worth exploring further.  I made some with level ends and some with symmetrical ends.

Grey SingleI am really pleased with the results and the addition of a crystal really sets them off and I have received a few commissions.  This is my current favourite.

So now I need to kick start my creativity for 2011.  There is a lot happening in the UK Polymer world this year and I want to be a part of it!
