Sterling Silver and Summer's Swansong

So it's well and truly Autumn now but I've left Summer behind with a sense of contentment. This season is a great excuse to work with all those gorgeous Autumn colours that I love so much. Burgundy, amber, royal purple, rich browns and copper. So watch this space for some lovely autumn and winter designs coming soon and, dare I say it... Christmas... range of Swarovski Crystal Christmas Tree earrings. We have new colourways available this year so they should be even more popular! In the meantime, I have been making some stunning sterling silver wire and freshwater pearl stud earrings for a bridal customer in the US. I enjoyed making these so much that I plan to add the gorgeous pearl nest earrings to my sophisticated sterling silver range. Particularly popular with brides, they are also a great gift for Christmas or for dazzling your friends in the party season! The ones below are made with ivory freshwater pearls but other colours will be available. I quite fancy burgundy pearls myself! Here's a special preview pic.
And so with October just around the corner, here's a swansong to Summer with a great review in last month's Independent of the classic Isles of Scilly holiday, by none other than Blur's Alex James. Click here to see what he thought of a seaside trip to the islands. There's nothing wrong with a bit of Summer holiday nostalgia!
