Magazine Feature - Names to know in jewellery

‘Names to know in jewellery’

Thanks to guest editor Camilla Westgard, who approached me for her article, you can find a little write up about my designs in this magazine feature. The focus of the article is the latest jewellery trends so worth a read if you want to know what jewellery is in this season. I was selected to be one of 3 jewellery designers given the accolade of ‘Names to know in jewellery’. What an honour. Thank you Camilla and thank you Crafts Beautiful.

‘Big on textures, detailing and finish’

In this magazine feature you’ll not only learn about this month’s jewellery trends but also get to know the other ‘Names to know in jewellery’ Debbie Bulford and Grace and Flora Jewellery. Also read how I am fascinated by the properties of metal and more…

Super excited to have my By The Light stacking ring set featured in last week’s Ethical.Market newsletter. The newsletter highlighted new gift ideas for the coming season. Click here to see the newsletter from Ethical.Market.

This set of 3 silver stackable rings are part of my By The Light collection which is named after a song from my mum’s favourite film. Pieces of handmade silver jewellery from this collection features a silvery moon. The film features Doris Day singing a song called ‘By the light of the silvery moon’.

What is Ethical.Market?

Ethical Market is the UK’s largest online market place for gifts, jewellery, clothes and homewares for the ethical shopper. When it comes to new gift ideas, I’ve got my eye on this cruelty free chocolate and hazelnut lip butter by Laila London… yum! 

After watching the recent Panorama program about illegal and child workers in our fashion industry I am more and more inclined to shop ethical every day.

Do you shop ethical? What’s your favourite online shop for ethical products? Would love to hear your recommendations. Thank you.
