I found this funny little object in a flea market in Santiago Chile. It's lovely how the exterior shape directly mimics the intended contents.

New Jewels Available to Buy Online

I have 13 sparkly new products available to buy in my online shop. I am thrilled to present these new pieces which focus on the scalloped pattern found in some of my wedding rings and my signature berry clusters. I've been having fun in the workshop experimenting with rich red garnets and bright green aventurine and chrysoprase. These pieces and more will be on show at the upcoming WASPS Open Studios.

Tea cup and saucer circa 1830

Found in a junk shop on the Isle of Skye this tea cup and saucer is one of my best loved treasures. I use it on a Saturday morning when I have a wee bit more time to brew a nice pot of earl grey (the rest of the week it's a mug). The wide shallow cup cools the tea quickly which is perfect for my non milky tea. The design is hand painted and it has no chips which is remarkable since it was made in about 1830. I like to imagine all of the ladies who have sipped their Saturday morning cuppa from it over its 180 year life.

Wedding and Engagement Rings in Vintage Boxes

All of my wedding and engagement rings now come to you in a pretty vintage ring box. A lot of my design inspiration comes from antique jewellery so this seemed like the perfect combination of old and new. Plus it gives me an excuse to indulge in my collecting obsession! Each one is unique and has its own charm. Whether its in the beautiful printed typeface on the inside or the worn exterior every box has a mysterious story to tell. Click HERE for more info.
