Here is a glimpse into a few new creations and the makings of a few more, plus inspirational trims that I’ve been collecting. Hope the colours make your heart sing!
“Dive into the Indigo”, antique assembly necklace is created from an antique 19th Century Indigo & Gold Champlevé cloisonné enamel button and is now available to buy in my shop
Song of the Sea necklace now available in Rubanesque
So as my most ardent Rubanesque fans noticed I have been in the atelier, shooting a whole new collection, going crazy with lots of new props that I recovered from the family treasures. Fine gold threads, untouched spools of silver, a gorgeous caterpillar strand fil d’or tassle, wooden bobbins, antique brass flower appliques…
I am having a lot of fun and got a bit giddy at the end of one photo session yesterday….
My youngest, Charlotte, just started today in a local creche… but in the run up to leaving her we had an extended adaptation period and I took the above photograph whilst driving to pick her up. The fog enveloping nearby Bonnieux in a warm embrace. Everywhere you look there are ruby tinted fields of cherry trees, and rows of amber vines leading into the descending mists surrounding the Foret de Cedres. Most tourists come for the scorching summer seasons but truly November in Lacoste is spectacular. It takes me three times as long to get anywhere as I am stopping every few metres to just take it all in.
