Over the past few weeks I have been focussing on taking photos of my products and staging them in a way that shows people the inspiration for my jewellery. Talking to customers at fairs and exhibitions allows me to point out the connections to nature and natural forms as the fancy beaded designs often mask the initial inspiration for that jewellery piece.
For example, this beautiful pendant set is inspired by.......
....a gorgeous purpley blue Hydrangea I found at Harlow Carr.
And this pine cone laid on it's end inspired me to create....
....this intricately beaded brooch.
A couple of months ago I indulged my obsession of tiny detail and my love of nature by getting myself a microscope that can take photos. As a result I can delve into the microscopic world and I have been having lots of fun!

enamel surface detail
I can't wait to use these images in my next jewellery ranges.
