Really loving this silver sea glass and pearl bangle, particularly being photographed on the reclaimed painted stool! Think this works really well as a backdrop for the collection. The silver bangle is highly polished with aqua coloured sea glass, coin shaped freshwater pearl and crackled rock crystal bead. You can almost smell the ocean and taste the saltiness of the sea! Cornwall is the perfect place to be in this hot summer we are having.
This bangle is another addition to The Wave Collection that I am in the process of making. Also there will be earrings, necklaces and pendants, yet to be created! It takes times to get it right and also getting other orders out. It has been so hot in the studio in recent weeks that soldering has had to be put on hold for now! The benefits of living by the coast is that evening dips are bliss..
This new design with sliding bead allows you to adjust the length of the chain. This piece was for a 30th birthday present from a customer wanting a classic yet timeless design. Using the adjustable bead gives the wearer the choice to wear the necklace at any length. Perfect!
This is my first attempt at making a silver ring set with aquamarine coloured sea glass. Due to the uneven surface and shape it made for a fairly challenging commission. But I think the outcome is beautiful and looks stunning when worn. My next attempt will be to set silver or gold leaf behind the sea glass to add extra lustre and luxury. Watch this space!
I have spent a few weeks photographing my jewellery and updating my website with the new designs. The 28mm f/3.5 Macro lens that I used has specialised ring lights which removes darkness and shadows and really helps capture the detail of each piece. Using my light box, with natural lighting and a daylight lamp I hope I have managed some good photographs that do justice to my jewellery.
