I've been working on some new necklaces recently including two new 'Snow bud' neck pieces. I wanted to create something more simple and easier to wear than my usual cluster pieces. I began with matching the stones up and seeing what shapes and colours work together. The silver snow buds in both pieces are generally the same, but the stones and added chain to one of them give them a different look from each other. The long 'Snow bud' neck piece can be worn at different lengths, according to the size of the wearer and the neckline they choose to wear from day to day.
Take a look down the right hand side where there are some other new necklaces just designed and made by moi, just waiting to be snapped up!

I recently sent some work off to two new stockists, SH Jewellery in Morningside, Edinburgh and Kalo in the Shawlands, Glasgow.

SH Jewellery was opened four months ago by a friend of mine, Sarah Hutchison. This gorgeous shop/gallery has some lovely and interesting jewels, mixing it up with designers from all over the UK, many being from London. Award winning silversmith and jeweller, Sarah also works at her bench at the back of her shop and is available to chat to most days. There's not another place like this in Edinburgh. If it's interesting, unusual, bespoke jewellery that you're after, then this is the place to go......well apart from Coburg Studios of course!!!
Ooo.....and Sarah has a lovely wee spaniel named Ruby who will greet you at the door! :)

The image above is a pendant now on sale at SH Jewellery. Again, loving the greens/greys/blues that the labradorites create in different lights, working well with the yellow/gold citrine and silver.

Making some new pieces for Sarah Dallas Gallery in Stockbridge, so watch this space!

The studio has a cute little visitor today. It is Donna Doggie Day care around here once more. I'm very distracted, but I don't mind :)
Picture above :) Merryn is getting used to him slowly!
