spring awakening

Spring may not be arriving until late March, but signs of the new season are already filling up my desk and most likely your mail inbox. I’ll be introducing new pieces for spring over the next few weeks. Followers of my twitter and facebook page have already been subjected to sneak preview teasing and image heavy, design development posts will be appearing here very soon. Until then, here are some views of my desk from last week…

leather, brass and gemstone bracelets / dip-dyed pom poms / 4 of the 50+ bead containers painstakingly labelled and organised

My love for marble continues alongside mouth-watering shades of lime and layered brass…

leather and brass bracelets featuring coconut, wood and semi-precious stones

Some of you may also be interested to hear that I am making amends this season for the severe lack of bracelets in the shop. There have been quite a few enquiries already, so I’ll be sending out a notification when available. Is anyone else looking forward to spring? Or are those of you based in the Southern Hemisphere longing for the transition from summer to winter?

    I absolutely love your jewelry! I've actually already have bought two! Don't get me wrong! Have you ever thought of using silver findings and pieces?

  7. anabela / fieldguided

    Beautiful as always! I absolutely cannot wait for spring. It's my favourite season.

    Jillian: ohhh yes, some of them are actually scaled down versions of a necklace.

    Anonymous: I can make almost everything in the shop with a silver finding version. Thanks for the hint, I'll look into getting some silver plate/sterling options available :)

    Your jewelry is beyond gorgeous- I love the subtlty of the elegance and the gloriously soft colour palate. I can't wait to see the pom pom beauty we spoke of;)

    my gosh, the pieces you make are always so beautiful and unique. I think I'm going to have to save up some money just to buy a piece!!

    Oh, am longing for winter. I honestly don't know how anyone can look forward to summer/heatstroke here. Usually autumn/spring are good too. I feel like a bug under a magnifying glass.
    I love the lime, so pretty!
    I also have a question: Is there a reliable place you source your semi-precious gems from? I've been looking on etsy so I can make some more bracelets for myself/friends but I'm unsure if I'll be buying glass beads instead. If you don't want to give up your secrets that's cool too ;)
    I think after I move I'll def have to get a lime bracelet at least… and then some :D

    Hannah Percyowl: spring/autumn are definitely the best seasons! I just spend summer melting under too much clothing. I used to visit Etsy for supplies when I first started. And you could also try Ebay for a mass selection?

  13. Sarah

    These are beautiful! I will definitely try and get my hands on one of the bracelets. Honestly blown away by these pieces.
    I was wondering, where do you get all your brass pieces from? I sometimes make (very amateur) jewellery for myself or for friends as gifts but I can often only get bright gold or silver findings and it's bothersome.
    I love the use of wood and leather as well. Yum!

    Sarah: Most of my brass findings are vintage or I usually pay $20+ for a small strand of the discs. Have you ever considered looking for inexpensive household fittings? Style Hurricane did a DIY post on it here…http://stylehurricane.blogspot.com/2010/11/diy-plumbing-supplies-bracelets.html

    I do not know how you stay so organized. My situation is getting a bit tricky with all my tiny hardware. And finding it and ordering it is the biggest challenge. What I am trying to say is- I don't know how you do what you do! And I do look forward to spring, but I think it is already spring here and has been for a while which always confuses me so early in the season. I had to get out of the way of rollerbladers today. Very looking forward to all your spring creations!
