Summer Celebration Ring

Let's Celebrate!

Confetti Cake! Recipe can be found on Best Friends For Frosting.

My dear friend Natalie recently asked me to make her a ring for some summer parties she was going to. The dresses she had bought for these occasions were mostly a black background with splashes of gorgeous bright florals, perfect for dancing outside on balmy summer evenings, sipping champagne cocktails under colourful paper lanterns...

These studio fragments selected for their corresponding colours look just like the bits of rock left at the bottom of a sweetie jar!

To stand against the black Natalie wanted something in a happy, sunny, summery yellow, and we added flecks of colour in hand picked shades that would also highlight the floral details in the fabric.

The finished ring, the coloured and metallic fragments appear like scattered confetti!

Collaboration! Summer Selection with Natalie Stoker

Happy International Collaboration Day! Here's a photo-shoot of some choice objects for the summer season. It's to celebrate my recent collaboration with talented textiles designer Natalie Stoker. Check out her gorgeous designs in her shop here.

SUMMER SELECTION!

One-of-a-kind necklaces made from natural volcanic pebbles and antique cut glass embellishments. Swimsuit not compulsory, I'd suggest thrown over a plain white shirt where it will give a bit of beachy texture to the stuffy city commute. Keep your eyes on the SHOP for when they arrive.

A polished pairing of a hand sculpted bangle and ring in metallic flecked white resin will show off even a subtle summer glow. Finish off with your fave shades and a lick of ice-cream. (I recommend Ginger's Comfort Emporium's "White Chocolate and Pink Peppercorn"...).

The print for these scrumptiously soft cushions has been created by Natalie using photographs taken in my studio of the processes during making my objects. You can read more about the inspiration behind this collab in the new shop here.

Happy Collaboration Day! Hope you all get to spend it working on something fun with friends and family, (even if it's as simple as peeling the spuds for a nice meal together).

"Let's collaborate... You bring the G...I'll bring the T!" Wahoooo :)
