Folksy Fringe 2023

 

We’re thrilled to to have been selected for The Folksy Fringe! First we were included in the summer exhibition and then in it’s sister show.

Folksy HQ describe the show – “ When we were curating the Summer Exhibition we found we didn’t have space for everything we wanted to include, and so the idea of a Fringe was formed. We hope you love it as much as we do! “

If you missed the Edinburgh Fringe – you can visit Folksy instead.

Included were our bronze pearl waterfalls – the perfect complement to our gold ormer pendant which was featured in the main exhibition.

The metallic coin pearls in these earrings reflect a stunning range of colours which just look so stunning no matter the lighting. They are like tiny disco balls – an ode to our love of the genre.

We’re delighted to have been be selected for the first annual Folksy Summer exhibition. Put together to celebrate the talent and craftsmanship of UK makers.

We are in excellent company with a wide selection of makers using a vast range of different materials and techniques.

Featured was our  recyled gold Ormer pendant –  A handmade ‘caricature’ of an Ormer Shell. This is our version of the Ormer, pared down to its beautifully simplified basic characteristics.

This pendant just looks so stunning when worn.

SULA Gallery – May 2023

We were delighted to be involved in the Bailiwick in Bloom exhibition. SULA Gallery’s Spring/Summer exhibition filled the gallery with floral imagery. Each artist created an artwork with a botanical element.

We created a new pair of our recycled plectrum earrings. The plectrums, cut from floral themed store cards have been embellished with rubies and finished with our signature sterling silver handmade ear hooks.

We’re loving using pinks and green together at the moment and this was a great opportunity to combine the two. The lush greens combined with the bold pinks creates a stunning statement that stands out when worn – and of course when displayed in a frame. They might be small but they have the presence of a pair of statement earrings.

Puffin Parade 2023

Puffin Parade 2023

Puffin Parade 2023

We were so pleased to be invited back to paint a puffin for the 2023 Puffin Parade, after painting a goat for the Golden Guernsey Goat Trail in 2021. Our goat was called Bejulicully – learn more about her here.

The puffin parade is in aid of Autism Guernsey and the GSPCA. A whole flock of puffins have been painted by various businesses and organisations from around the island. All the puffins have been displayed in different locations around Guernsey.

You can download an app that you can use to hunt for all the puffins- those who find all the puffins are entered into a prize draw. Autism Guernsey invite app users to make a donation. More info about the app here and you can donate here.

We have been paired with sponsors – Island Health, who have been great to work with, and neatly tying in with our own values around art and colour for mental health. The turquoise is one of their brand colours, perfect for a puffin.

The intricate hand drawn patterns are inspired by lichens –  our reference photos were taken from the puffins’ winter home, Iceland, on a trip in the summer of 2022.

In Sept the puffins will be auctioned off and will go to their forever homes. All proceeds will go to Autism Guernsey and the GSPCA.

Green and Purple Beaded Statement Necklace

The rebirth exhibition commemorated the re-opening of the Harbour Gallery in it’s new location at 19 The Quay beside the old St.Helier Harbour.

We were overjoyed to be asked to come back and display our work in their amazing new space. It has been a pleasure to display and sell our work with them the past few years.

Inspired by the theme rebirth and the exhibition opening in spring time – we submitted a set of three necklaces that remind us of the colours and textures of spring.

They give us the feeling of just having had breath of fresh air, surrounded by soft greens and pops of colour from wildflowers.
