As some of you may know, I'm in the process of starting to sell my entirely handmade jewellery pieces alongside my artwork. For me, it's a natural evolution to also add decoration of the self to the decoration of the surroundings to my repetoire. Humans have adorned themselves with jewellery for thousands of years and it really is one of our basic instincts to decorate our bodies and our homes. On a more personal level, I am a jewellery lover through and through. Anybody who knows me, knows that I love all sorts of jewellery particularly #statementjewellery (my American friends, forgive me for all the confusing references to #jewellery rather than #jewelry).
Over the past few months, I have made several pieces of jewellery with semi-precious gemstones for my own personal use. And I have been bowled over by the feedback I have received from friends but also from strangers (on the street, in a restaurant, in a shop). Multiple people have told me how unique and beautiful my necklaces are. And with that encouragement, I am now starting to create and sell my jewellery.
My style is definitely statement pieces. For now, I'm mainly focusing on statement #necklaces (with accent #earrings), fabulously wearable unusual bracelets (stretchy, stacker, and charm style) and some #statementearrings.
All my jewellery is made with entirely genuine precious and semi-precious #gemstones and real #pearls and with #gold, #silver or #rose-gold plated metals. All the metals I use are 100% free from any nasties like nickel, lead, or cadmium (which are sometimes used in cheaper jewellery by others). The #Putneypierartmarket in Putney (London) recently was my first outing for my jewellery and I'm delighted to say that I sold some lovely botswana agate pieces. I've also taken some updated pictures of my necklaces and will upload them to my website shortly - UPDATE - I have now uploaded a majority of my jewellery / jewelry on my online shop where you can find statement necklaces, beautiful bracelets (stretchy and metal) and unique earrings. I'm also happy to take commissions based on particular colour combination or birthstone preference / special occasion.
