Folksy Fringe 2023

 

The Folksy Fringe is now live and we’re thrilled to have been selected! First we were included in the summer exhibition, now we’re 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 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.

This lovely multi-stranded ombre pearl bracelet bracelet is made from three charming earthy shades – a lovely green, peachy gold and deep orange.

Each pearl is our favourite potato shape – adding a bit of life to the traditional pearl bracelet. Added to the clasp are three pretty pearl dangles. All with a recycled sterling silver clasp.

We love this style of multi stranded bracelet – it adds a bit of an extra statement.

Bespoke Charm Bracelet

One of our latest commissions – this beautiful bespoke charm bracelet was originally commissioned a few years back and was recently bought in again to be restrung from cotton cord on to a lovely recycled silver navette chain. This one featured stunning gemstones and a silver heart with hand stamped initials.

We’ve really been seeing charm bracelets coming back in to style over the last month or two. Part of the 90’s/Y2K revival that seems to be just about everywhere.

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.
