Butterflower Weddings

'Butterflower' Wing Drop earrings, silver

Butterflower chain Necklace, silver & 18ct gold

It's all about weddings at the moment. It's that time of year when Brides To Be are preparing for their big day! Clare Chandler, owner of Clifton Rocks in Bristol, sent me this link the other day! I was delighted to find my Butterflower Drop earrings being modelled on page 49!

If you'd like a wee look click here and then click on the online wedding magazine.

Today, I had a visit from Sarah Dallas, owner and manager of the Sarah Dallas Gallery, a lovely little place in Stockbridge (Edinburgh). She chose a collection for her gallery which will be on show as from the 5th March. There will be some similar 'Butterflower Drop' earrings there too if you feel the urge to make a statement on your big day or any other special occasion for that matter. The earrings above a different version again from that of the ones at Sarah Dallas and Clifton Rocks. They do however, have the same impact!

If you are looking for some special presents for the bridesmaids or mothers of the bride and groom, just give me a call and we can arrange an appointment at my studio. I have a diverse range of designs in earrings, pins, brooches, pendants and more. If you're not based in Edinburgh you can find your nearest stockist (scroll down on the right) or if you'd like to order something you find on here, get in touch and we can take it from there.

Last month, I also updated my Lovedazzle page. Amongst some new pieces, you'll find another special Butterflower piece! (as shown above)

So if you're looking for some unique handmade wedding jewellery or just simply want a lovely floral piece, you know where to look :)

And a little reminder.........'Make Your Own Wedding Rings'

Have a good weekend!

Make your Own Wedding Rings

Well hello! Apologies for not keeping you up to date with what's been happening recently. I have to admit I haven't really made anything since before Christmas. That doesn't mean to say I haven't been busy though! Amongst tax returns and planning the year ahead, myself and Hannah Louise Lamb have a new and exciting venture to share with you all! As you may have guessed from the title, we are setting up a workshop where couples who are about to get married can come and use our studio and our expertise for the day to make each others wedding rings! Check our new blog for more details! Bookings are now being taken!

Over the weekend, I had a visitor over from the Isle Of Arran. Ann spent the day with me in my studio making wedding rings for her friends. She made a lovely pair of 18ct white gold polished rings! You can see her in action in the photos above!
Ann's request to do this with me was the source of inspiration that led myself and Hannah to our idea for 'Make your own wedding rings'! So thank you Ann! :)

I am also taking on one to one students now. So if you fancy learning the basic traditional techniques of jewellery making, or if you've had a bit of experience already and would like to learn more, please get in touch. We can discuss what it is you would like to do or I could set you a project! It's up to you! You can book for a five session block which is £200 (£20 an hour).

Have a good week!
