Rings with bling

I have had these stones in my stash for ages, so I finally decided to use them and made these rings. I have this problem of buying stones and then not wanting to let them go, but the day comes when I have to. They will be on sale at the I Heart Market on Saturday 3 July. The one the left is a faceted quartz and the other a garnet

Flowers for Icon Africa

I have been working on a range called Icon Africa. It is about South African flora and fauna. The first in the range was the flower range. The illustrations were done by a good friend Jessica Nicholson. They started off being fridge magnets, as all the "South African" fridge magnets I had seen were rather awful and a bit gaudy, so this was to produce something that had more style. I then realised that they would make great brooches as well. I love how the wood has turned out.

Some more shapes

Here are some more "shapes" brooches in different colours and words. I have done them in perspex and wood. What I like about the different materials is that they have a different feel. The perspex being fun and a bit cheeky whereas the wooden ones have a sophisticated feel about them.
