Sale ends tomorrow!

I nearly forgot to tell you, I'm having a summer sale on my website and it ends tomorrow!  20% off everything, hurry hurry!

Diamond Planet

Apparently a 'diamond planet' has been discovered in the Milky Way.  Disappointingly, according to Ben Stappers of the University of Manchester, “I don't imagine that a picture of a very shiny object is what we're looking at here."

Not that diamonds have to be glitzy to be beautiful.  Rough diamonds are a real trend in jewellery at the moment and something that I really love.  Something like the Ruth Wood ring above can have a lot more personality than a big flawless sparkler, as well as being more affordable.  I've been eyeing some tiny grey, cognac and black rough diamond beads and have plans for some subtle sparklers of my own...

Hello there.  I don't think I've officially mentioned it here (although you may have noticed the icon in the sidebar), but I'm very excited to have been selected to exhibit for the first time at the prestigious Origin contemporary craft fair in September.  So I'm madly making jewellery and preparing my display.  More on that later!

Just wanted to a share a couple of nice mentions from Boticca while I'm here.  It's well worth having a look at the site if you're after hand-crafted jewellery and accessories.
