Inspirations this week... January 29 2014

Things I'm inspired by so far this week.....

Pinterest - I've had a little more time to indulge on Pinterest this week and I've found some gorgeous images of nature as well as some lovely things people have made.

Red gold - I love this sumptuous coloured metals, especially in act which allows the lovely copper tones to shine through. I've added a new 9ct red gold ring to my Hammered collection, set with a beautiful shiny pink garnet. Image below!

Beautiful Open Houses! May 13 2013

 Wow, I've been really inspired this last weekend with a morning's visit to some of Brighton Festivals many amazing Open Houses.

Myself and City Girl at Heart ( managed to fit in 5 houses - all completely different with diverse artwork from huge houses in Hove (Wilbury Gardens and Hove Park Villas) to a bijoux flat in West Hove.

There was outside sculpture (see pic below) interesting jewellery ( for example who uses sparkly vintage finds to make into unique necklaces) and inspiring paintings.

My favourite had to be Kitty Finegan's ( 50's influenced pop prints with their gorgeous colours and cheeky content!

I came away with renewed enthusiasm to create some new and exciting work. I wonder if I can fit in some more next weekend....
