Rex is 6 months!

Our little boy Rex is now 6 months and teething (poor thing) so I made one of my teething bangles for him to munch on, lucky for me too! Silver is a really healthy material for babies and this also doubles up as a rattle (Rex is my most demanding customer!). 

This was his first road test and I'm pleased to say he loves it- phew!

Pieces of Eight

Our Pieces of Eight are available to buy through Not on the High Street, soon available through our site on pendants or bangles. Take a peek!

Summer commissions

Hi guys! More orders to get you in the creative spirit and inspire your own bespoke trinkets:

First are these cool dog tags ordered for (by the sound of the name!) an equally cool Captain Dr. Watts as a leaving pressie from the Isle of Wight Sixth Form.

A gift in silver with gold granulation for a wedding anniversary (3 years and going strong) from a lovely son, Ralph. To be  put on a necklace, which is added to yearly. Congrats! 

Cufflinks in silver, with delicious diamonds that adorn the cutesy sailing boats.

This one was a lovely commission for a fellow artist, Beverly Kirk. You should all check out her work using vintage and found objects! Maintaining her signature working style in her jewellery I created an oxidised solid silver pin: simple and linear, which displays Beverly's family heirlooms.

To match a pendant I'd made previously, these wedding ring replacements are new treats for a couple wanting wedding ring replacements:

Engagement and wedding bands for a lovely couple. They wanted the rings to curve beautifully and 'hug' each other- they were created in the studio in 9ct white gold and diamond. All the best for the future love birds!

"Fin's Ring"
It was a real honor to make such a special ring for a truly inspirational family. 9ct white gold with inherited diamonds.

Raff's bangles!

Raff once again has been super busy making customised bangles (even making one for the boss- lucky me!) . They've been selling like hot cakes and the personalised element is proving very popular; mine depict the three of us and have our favourite things on each of the pieces of eight.

'Sophie' bangle 'Rex Sea & Cake'
'Raff' bangle 'Raff Loves Waves'
'Rex' bangle 'Trees T.Rex (his favourite toy!) & Mama'

If you're visiting Ventnor and the beautiful seaside this summer, pop into Honeybourne Jeweller, Church St PO38 1SW and say hello!

That's us for now, lots of love- Soph x
