Colour of the Month – Black and White

If you’ve known me for any amount of time, you’ll know that I love black and white!  In fact, most of my clothes are black and/or white, and most of my accessories are RED.  So, when I saw that this summer was shaping up to be quite neutral, I was quite pleased!  I decided to make a range of jewellery to complement the season.

This week, I am sharing the necklaces that I made on leather.  The first necklaces features small white beads on black leather, and it is actually my favourite of the entire collection (and the one I thought I would like the least when I was planning the work)!  It is a versatile necklace that works with pretty much everything that I wear.

The second necklace features black and white beads on red leather.  Super funky, I also really liked this necklace, as it has all of my favourite colours!

The pictures below will take you to my online shop, where you can also see more of the jewellery that I have made.

Colour Wheel Necklaces with fine silver wire details

This is my last post about the Colour Wheel.

I have really enjoyed playing with all of the different colours, and types of beads, and making all sorts of different pieces of jewellery.  I love the colour wheel, and I love playing with colours.

Thanks for giving me a chance to show you some new work.  Next month, something different again.  A closer look at recycled glass, and the different colours.

The Colour Brown – with Purple

This is part of a series of posts about colour.  This month I am focusing on the colour brown.

Brown with Purple!  Yes, an all time favourite, I love how feminine this colour combination is!  I wrote about it over here too.  This is the colour combination that inspired me to dedicate a whole month to the colour brown!  I’ve really enjoyed looking at brown, and all of the colours that work with brown.

You can find the following necklaces in my online shop, just click the photo and it will take you to the shop.

Next month will be a surprise!  If you are subscribed to my newsletter, you will find out about the Colour of the Month tomorrow, and you will have the first chance to buy the jewellery listed (at special prices)!

Back by Popular Request…

RedIsBackI am re-listing some red Italian Glass jewellery.  I have had several requests over the last few months for some of this style of jewellery, and it made me start thinking about what I was offering in my online shops.

So, now I have re-listed the red version of the jewellery that I have been making, but you can always change the colour if you like.  So, for example, let’s say you like the red necklace on the leather…but you wanted black beads…just let me know and I’ll make it for you.  I’ll even take a photo before I send it, just to be sure you are getting what you want.

Coming soon: I will put together a special page of colour options that are really easy for me to do, but again, if you are after a specific colour that is not there, just let me know, and I’ll see what I can do!
