To blacken the silver or not?


I would really love to know what you think of the oxidised (black finish) silver. I have made many pieces with that finish, some of them work well, but would you buy or wear a piece of silver jewellery that's not silver in colour? Personally I don't wear much silver, as it does not suit my skin tone and the black finish really works on me, but what about on you? Please let me know what you think!

My Home Studio


I have been busy at home decorating, and making some jewellery in my little garden studio.

As you can see it's a simple, clean space to work in, and not much of a visual feast. My partner and I share the space (he's a Musician and Ethnomusicologist) so we have kept it more practical than beautiful.

We built the studio ourselves in 2008 shortly after our daughter was born.
The idea was that I could make jewellery whilst she slept. That did not happen much, both the sleeping and the making 😫
