Happy New Year to all my customers! I hope that any of you who received a piece of my jewellery or that you treated yourself to, that you love it and that you feel you have a little piece of Cornwall with you. I had two weeks out of the studio and we were blessed with some fabulous weather and sunsets in North Cornwall over Christmas. This photo was taken on an evening walk on a local beach... No filter was needed. I am now back in the workshop tomorrow refreshed, creating and making. Watch this space!
These stunning shell artwork seem to have taken me away from jewellery for a bit..The limpet shells are set against a hand painted backdrop of stunning sea marine blues which allows the beauty, subtle colours and textures of the limpet shells to shine. Who knew? Taking the photo proved more of a challenge in windy and stormy conditions. There is more to this range, with mussel shells, driftwood, scallop shells and granite lined pebbles available to buy on my Etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/Sallyseashells
We have been having some magical sunsets in Cornwall recently. Vibrant blues, luminous oranges against the crushing noise of the waves. This particular photo I took is one of my favourites and no editing was done. It was like watching a film screen and the colours continually changed for at least a hour or more as the sun was setting. I also like the calmness of the sea which does not happen often on the North Coast! This all inspires my jewellery and gives me a sense of mindfulness in a busy world.
