Happy Easter!

Check out these chicks! I love easter, it's my favourite time of year- the little lambs and fields of daffodils, the longer days and blooming greenery; that's my kind of paradise. So, there's loads of new spring time inspired pieces on their way, you might have to go on a hunt for some of them though! Now for this week's most interesting commissions...

This flower brooch began it's life as a battered chunky old silver bangle. The customer had had it since she was a teenager, but it had lost it's enamel center. I turned it inside out, soldered it into a circle and gave it a hammered finish, along with the added mixed flower detail. A new lease of life for this gem.

This quirky charm bracelet belongs to IOW Radio's Heather McCullam, I added another charm after she ordered  an oxidised silver vinyl record with initials, A.M.

Next up- A chunky stone ring, Silver with Tourmaline, Garnet and Gold. The piece is made up by two seperate rings that slot together.

Steephill Cove- Ruby Wedding gift

I made this landscape using oxidised silver and the 40th Anniversary stone, Rubies. The couple's favourite place on the Island is Steephill Cove (see image below).
