Jewels from the Lake..
My recent summers spent in the Lake District have inspired a whole new range of jewellery, I became obsessed with slate walls, I have so many photographs of them, I imagine the slates made from silver, the odd gold one, stones peeping out from between, secret doors.. gold leaves growing around, layer upon layer.. Sparkling lakes, gold, grey, blue, mauve, green.... inky blue... going to smoky black. I have a sketch book full of designs, these earrings are the first to be realised ... I only hope I have time to create the rest..
