Tuesday 19th April saw the inaugural FLUX conference at the Goldsmiths Centre in central London.

Conceived by a group of independent jewellery professionals, FLUX was formed with the intention of creating an open platform for discussion and debate of those issues surrounding ethics and sustainability in today’s jewellery industry.

A packed day of diverse keynote speakers and interactive workshop sessions began with Lina Villa, Executive Director of the Alliance for Responsible Mining in Columbia, responsible for the Fairmined initiative.

FLUX - Fair Luxury

28/03/2016 22:00

 

It has been a little while since my last post – and there is a very good reason for the gap.

Over the last few weeks I have been working as one of a team of fantastic jewellers and change makers, organising a conference to promote ethical jeweller practice and awareness.

As a result, I’m proud to say that we are just a couple of short weeks away from the launch of FLUX (Fair Luxury) – the UK’s first responsible jewellery conference.

A Whole World of Love!

14/02/2016 23:33

 

A picture I took in the park this morning  - seemed like the perfect opportunity to share a little bit of ‘tree-hugger’ love xxx

 

As I have talked about many times here before, one of the things I love most about jewellery is the sense of tradition that it holds.

 

Such traditions exist in all walks of life across the globe and are part of what defines us culturally and historically - for better or, unfortunately, for worse.


Whatever your feelings about Valentines Day here in the UK, I think it provides an interesting opportunity to have a little explore into how it is celebrated in a few other countries and provide a valuable chance to reflect on those things that make us so unique and also so united in our need to celebrate life in all its chaotic crazieness!

What a fabulous year!

07/02/2016 23:03

 

Upon entering 2016, I have taken time to reflect on some of my bespoke commission pieces from the past 12 months.

 

‘One of a kind’ jewellery has always been one of my specialities. It is how I naturally work – I love the process of inspiration / creation / manifestation.

 

I am constantly creating new pieces – the ones that appear in metallic form represent merely a fraction of those that appear in my sketchbook.

 

With the natural point of reminiscence that is a new year, I have taken the opportunity to look again at some of the constant and favourite themes that have appeared in my bespoke catalogue within the last 12 months.

 

The first selection that I would like to share is rose gold – such a gorgeous, gorgeous metal.

 

Alloyed with a large percentage of copper to create the ‘pink’ colour, rose gold is a beautiful and sensual metal that creates a subtle compliment to many gemstones, while offering a soft, contemporary look which works well with most skin tones.

 

In the image above, you can see just a few examples of the bespoke, handmade jewellery that I have created in the past 12 months that feature rose gold.

Bledhen Nowyth Da!

Happy New Year!


I’m afraid I had to look that up as, despite being from Cornwall, I know virtually none of the Cornish language – apart from that the Cornish for Cornwall is Kernow.

 

So I owe a great deal of thanks to the Cornish Langauge Partnership for translating the following for me.....

 

'Namnygen y tehwelis dhyworth Nadelik bryntin y'm tre gernewek. My a grys ow bos feusik dres eghen drefen my dhe henwel an pow gwyls ha teg ma ow thre, ha'n werin hegar ha splann neb a drig ynno, ow howetha.'


'I have just returned from a wonderful Christmas in my Cornish home. I consider myself to be endlessly fortunate to call this wild, beautiful county my home and the warm, gorgeous folk that live within it, my friends.'
