A Present for Poppy
When Poppy was born in December 2020, her Grandfather came to me asking for a piece of jewellery as a gift, but he didn't know what that might be. We discussed pendants and rings, neither of which felt right. Finally, we settled on a charm bracelet with a Poppy, a 'P', a sunrise, and two flags representing her parents. This is a beautiful gift, which Poppy will hopefully add memories to over the years.
Kathy saw a ring I had made for an exam, and loved it. Of course, I wasn't going to sell my exam piece, so I made another for her. She had the opportunity to have it how she wanted; she picked the stone and the texture round the band and it was made to her size. One of the things I loved, whilst creating this piece, was sending Kathy work-in-progress photos and getting her reaction at each stage. It is truly magical for a client to witness the creation of their unique piece.
A Family of Peridot.
When Sara's father died in 2019, she wanted to buy something for herself and her two daughters to remember him by. His birthstone was Peridot, so I made them a selection of earrings, which they all wore to the funeral. They may be small and understated, but the three pairs are a family in memory and enhance a connection between a mother and her daughters.
Lucy wanted penguins, specifically a Rockhopper penguin! She sent me a photo she had taken on holiday. I replicated the outlines in silver and created earrings. The tummies are mirror finished, whilst the bodies and wings have a satin finish, giving a delightfully subtle contrast.
All Alison said was "Dainty, Retro, Amethyst and Peridot". This gave me an incredible free range to create a ring. I was over the moon with it and so was she. She wears it everyday. This is sterling silver, a coil band set with a Marquis Amethyst Cubic Zirconica, and two round Peridot Cubic Zirconica.
It was Kat and Graham's first wedding anniversary, but like most men, he didn't know where to start with jewellery. I asked him to send me a photo of the wedding dress. It was embroidered with hearts and daisies. I made half a dozen hearts and half a dozen daisies, arranged and rearranged them until we had something beautiful. Amethyst is her favourite colour. I hear she hasn't taken it off since he gave it to her.
