Soft and Organic

Soft and Organic

A few months ago Kriket & I started sketching out some new jewellery designs inspired by our love of botanicals. Kriket is incredibly green-fingered, with her home, garden and studio full to the brim with plants of all shapes and sizes. We looked to these leaves for inspiration in creating soft, organic shapes to incorporate into our new designs.

We also wanted this new collection to allow for some of the more irregular seaglass nuggets. Squirrelled away in our studio we have some incredible pieces of seaglass which we cannot use because they are not easily paired. We hoped to design some earrings which can balance without requiring a perfect pair of glass nuggets.

Some of our initial ideas with leaf shapes required the metal to be laser cut by an external company. While we may return to this concept in the future, for now we wanted to focus on jewellery which could be made by us in the studio from start to finish.

Pictured below is the first design to be added to our 'NEW' collection on our website. These earrings are available in sterling silver or 14k gold-filled, and can be made with aqua or green seaglass. The organic circle shapes are matte hammered and from them hangs dainty hammered disc charms. Swinging gently from the discs, and hand-wrapped in wire, are two sparkling pieces of seaglass. The overall look is a touch of glamour in a natural, subtle form.

We are working on a slight variation to this design, with a larger organic shape in metal and no disc charm. We also hope to produce matching necklaces. Please keep an eye on our 'NEW' collection and we will of course share any new designs on our social media and in our subscriber newsletters.
