Tomorrow is officially the first day back to work after the festive season, even if quite a few people have been working through the break. It's practical simple jewellery that is the key for everyday use. Tiny studs that can be dressed up or down to suit the occasion, and a simple yet unique handsawn necklace that works with many different outfits. Simplicity in silver.

Something I love with the dark nights is candlelight and the shadows and patterns that candles create. This is the smallest in a small series of bronze and silver candle holders with small stylised butterflies.
The cast light from the flame highlights the white wings and creates shadows in a subtle gentle way. Ideally this candleholder should be placed in a dark corner where the minimalistic light from the candle gets to realise its full potential.

With this design I'd originally intended to do a 'sketch' that was semi-realistic. As I started drawing it transpired that actually the emotion and meaning behind the piece were dictating the style. The resulting design is spindly and ghost-like with the form dissapearing into the air at the extremities. A fire bird, with vitality in the centre, that has been lost to the wind.

January is the time for planning and bringing fresh ideas to the table. I bought a new diary and calendar for 2012 today and took my time picking the ones that felt just right. There are a lot of projects in the pipeline for 2012 but in order to start this year's blog in a pretty way with inspirational photographs, I thought I'd share the images of a ring that I made last year.
This is a one off ring that has been designed to work in conjunction with an existing ring. There won't ever be another one quite like it. Like the other rings in the Kvist series, the diamonds spread out along the lines of the pattern like water, giving a bright glimmer to just parts of the design. The ring itself was left matt, allowing the true colour of the white gold to compliment the natural colour and shine of the coffee diamonds.
