Photos at last!

Nicky let me use her camera when she popped over this morning and it has made such a difference! The camera that I have been using so far has been great for taking photos in natural daylight outside, but I've come to realise that it's not up to the job of taking photos indoors, and let's face it, living in the UK I need to be able to take my jewellery photos inside! If any of my family are reading this - I think I know what I'd like for Christmas!

Anyway, these are some of the photos I took this morning, and they are a sneak preview of the new collection of jewellery I will be uploading to the website at the beginning of next week. I've hinted a couple of times over the last couple of months that I've been designing a new range of jewellery, partly in preparation for taking on more wholesale work, and partly because I had a sketch book full of ideas that needed a new material. And that new material is resin.

I have to admit that I had looked at resin jewellery years ago and was not that impressed, but after a lot of experimentation I love the combination of the beautiful range of colours I can produce (I colour the resin myself using a range of different pigments) with sterling silver, and that customers will be able to order specific colours. And the ideas for new designs and variations on a theme keep coming! The blue earrings in the blog competition last week were a preview, but here are a couple of other pieces. The blue pendant is mine (sorry!) as I've worn it every day since making it, but a couple of others in different colours will be on the website soon, as will several pairs of earrings and a few other bits and pieces that I'll show you over the next few days.

Let me know what you think!


  1. I can see why your are keeping the blue pendant Jo its gorgeous ! I can see lots of hubbys getting heavy hints for christmas for those :o)

  2. Very lovely, Jo. The pendant is particularly fab!

  3. Wow, I love those new designs. The pendant is gorgeous, I would wear that myself. The earrings are very clean and modern - really different.

  4. Thank you for your comments ladies - I'm glad you like them!
    I've made some more bases for the pendants today - just got to mix, colour and pour the resin, let it set for a few days and then sand and polish!

  5. Loving these new designs, Jo, so clean and fresh looking. Don't blame you for hanging on to the pendant either.

    Btw - I've tagged you, but please don't feel obliged to take part if you don't want to.

  6. I love to read your blog, Jo, it's always so interesting. I'm sure you've got loads more interesting things to tell us, so I've tagged you! See my blog for details.

  7. I love the earrings. Can't wait to see what else you have done.

    I enjoy your blog and have tagged you. I am not sure if anyone else has...the rules are on my blog.
