New Jewellery

I treated myself to a few pieces of handmade jewellery lately and wanted to share them with you. First up is a piece I bought from the delightful jeweller and stylist, Emma Cassi. This stunning piece ' Fushia and Bamboo' is in her current collection online now...

Next up, I discovered jewellery duo Dull Diamond through a friend and loved the colours and combinations of these unique pieces. They create batches of one off pieces and post them up in their online have to be quick to get your pick!

Finally, on my Etsy wishlist for a while was this beautiful piece by italian designer Fludd. It's just the perfect length and such a great strong colour. I love the little flashes of wood that show through on the scuffed corners.


I was invited to do a little demonstration of my work in the member's lounge at the V&A this week. It felt funny to be on display sewing like that but it was lovely to meet and chat to people interested in my work and the processes I use.

Stay tuned for news of future events at the V&A!

Spring Collection - 2012

With some beautiful bright, flowery coloured fabrics from The Cloth House, I've created this little flock of springtime standard birds... I'm enjoying them brightening up the studio. The coral bird is my favourite, the colour just sings!

They'll be joining the shop in the coming weeks, each at £90.
