Exciting Collaboration with Brighton Lace

I’ve long been an admirer of the lush lace lingerie designed by Brighton Lace so when I met the designer, the lovely Lou, recently we decided to join forces for a lace inspired Valentines treat. The idea for our Valentines collaboration came about at a recent Brighton Etsy Team meet up. Realising we both have a love of lace, and who doesn’t?, we matched up her sizzling Brighton Lace lingerie with my lace inspired jewellery collection for you.

A Very Personal Wedding Ring Commission

I love jewellery commissions. Each one is different from the last.  I enjoy getting to known my clients a little better and discussing their jewellery design ideas.

I also love weddings, usually because friends or family have found ‘the one’ which makes me all happy and squidgy inside. They bring all their nearest and dearest together for a big celebration. This means a reunion of familiar faces plus a good old party too. What’s not to love?!

The best combination is making a wedding commission for friends. When my friends Geoff and Cathy announced their engagement I was so chuffed to be asked to make their wedding rings for them. Their wedding was on Saturday 13 June at Crowhurst Park, Battle, just outside Hastings Sussex. What an amazing day and what a perfect looking couple they make…

Geoff and Cathy’s rings reflect them perfectly. They are both nature lovers and spiritual people. Cathy is an accomplished writer and photographer. Geoff is a master in fungi foraging.

On one side of their rings is an ‘Om Ganesh’ symbol. This Hindu symbol is a combination of Om meaning ‘ultimate reality, entirety of the universe, truth, divine, supreme spirit, cosmic principles, knowledge’ and Ganesh ‘remover of obstacles’, ‘patron of arts and sciences’… so fitting for them. There are two enamelled circles on the rings to add colour to the sterling silver wedding rings.

On the other side of their wedding rings is a laser etched Mayan God face which represents the beginning of a new Mayan Calendar which is the time when Geoff and Cathy met each other. I had a little help from illustrator Scott Nellis who designed the Mayan God, a happy collaboration!

On the inside of the rings is the hand stamped date of their wedding 13 June 2015.

I’m so thrilled to have made such unique rings that are so precious and symbolic to this lovely couple and I wish them every happiness together. (Oh I’m getting all teary eyed as I type this!)

Congratulations Cathy and Geoff! I loved your real flower petal confetti. It smelled gorgeous too.

I look forward to watching my flowers grow. It will be a beautiful reminder of your wonderful day.

Have you been to any weddings recently? What was your favourite part?

Links in a chain – British Society of Enamellers

The British Society of Enamellers (BSOE) is worth investigating if you live in the UK  or not ! If you do any sort of enamelling whether it be jewellery, panels, 3D objects, anything have a look at their site. Have a look at their website gallery for a peek at 2 and 3 dimensional work of some of its members. If you are an enameller but don’t live in the UK I’m sure BSOE will be interested in hearing from you with potential to exhibit here.

“The BSOE has a broad membership, encompassing enamel students to professional level enamellers. Our aim is to promote the highest standards of contemporary design and workmanship in all aspects of this unique and exciting medium. UK-based, the BSOE has international connections and offers exhibition opportunities, bursaries, an online gallery, workshops and events for its members.”

http://www.enamellers.org/

Membership is very reasonable and they run courses throughout the year that are very useful. They take part in prestigious exhibitions and invite members to take part.  All very exciting.

I have seen this piece in the flesh and it is very impressive. A collaboration of two BSOE members Ruth Ball and Mary Brodie. Fabulous colours and textures.
