Oh My Gobstopper

With the Amirah Kassem's installation of gumball art ready to spread joy and fun amidst the party goers at Brooklyn Artist's Ball I thought it would be the perfect time to share one of my favourite creations. My own Gobstopper ring is made one-at-a-time and one-of-a-kind in resin with a sterling silver band. Custom colours and sizes are available, to pre-order yours or make any enquiries drop me an email to:  info@jademellor.com.

Flower Shop is one of my "wish list" places to visit to have a dream cake made by amazing artist Amirah Kassem . I love her work and style, and the message behind her creations is definitely to enjoy life, with her phenomenally vibrant sweet treats becoming a way of interacting and sharing delightful experiences with one another. This definitely has a lot in common with the kind of jewellery I like to make. It's a way of communicating what you  are interested in, in a way you can share with others. And this kind of art, whether to eat, see or wear is often made to commemorate a special occasion, or brighten up the mundaneness of the everyday to appreciate a colourful world and a life worth living. A tasty, playful treat!

“The Murakami flowers have got to be one of my favourite things ever,”  Says Kassem. She chose these iconic smiling blooms for her installation created by sweets at Brooklyn Museum. Photo courtesy of Tmagazine.

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!
