Jewelry pieces may be from new materials whereas a lot of what is created is from reconstructed pieces and found objects. I recently made a necklace from fishing swivels that someone had thrown out, combined with charity shop findings it made an interesting necklace.

COLOURS THIS SEASON Stand out pieces remain favourable amongst jewellery designers, who are using bright and pastel tones to compliment the warmer weather.

GIFT GIVING WITH MEANING No matter what time of the year, whether it is a holiday, birthday or celebration, gift giving is and always will be an important part of our culture. It is a way to say ‘happy birthday’ to the…
