Wedding jewellery commission

This time last week I was enjoying my lovely sister's wedding (I can't believe it's been a week already!). 
As a wedding gift I made jewellery for the bridal party, which turned out to be 10 pieces of jewellery! 4 pairs of cufflinks and 6 pendants. I made them all out of Art Clay Silver.

The style of the cufflinks, for the groom and his three best men, was chosen by my brother in law. He wanted initials on them but also wanted them to be a little different so we decided to make the edges of the cufflinks raw, which I did with a metal file before firing. The lettering was professionally engraved.
My sister asked me to put YNWA on her husband-to-be's cufflinks as a surprise. He's a big Liverpool fan and it stands for You'll Never Walk Alone. Awwww.

I made the bridesmaids these bee pendants with their initials on the back. I also made some smaller round bee pendants for my sister's new nieces (not pictured).

Jewellery inspiration - unusual stone settings

I am pretty addicted to pinterest and love that we have so much access to inspiration as jewellers there. I have recently been drawn to unusual stone settings and I find it useful to consider how the jeweller has done it as it gives me a jumping off point for ideas. Here are a few innovative designs that I love.

I have decided to announce the theme for the coming month a week before the start of the month. This is to give people time to think about their designs, particularly those that are busy and have a lot to fit in.

The theme for February 2019 is .... music and lyrics




Here are some ideas to get you thinking about how to interpret the theme

2018 Black Friday deals for metal clay jewellers

It's Black Friday again and even before the day arrived there were lots of deals around (and surely more to come). Black Friday is fairly new to the UK but it's always good to look out for a deal! Here are some of the best I've seen for metal clay artists. Do share any I've missed in the comments and I'll add them in

Clay, materials and tools
Cookson Gold has discounts on clay and tools
I haven't seen any other discounts on metal clay but there are a lot of discounts on gemstones and beads out there including Beads Direct and Kernowcraft. Elsilver also have discounts, it's worth checking out their 25% off offer on dies.

Jewellers Academy has 50% off their courses including 3 metal clay courses. Tip: buy the bundle with Julia Rai's metal clay charms course and my stone setting torch fired course as it's the same cost as my course on its own! There's also the new Fancy bezels, prongs and bails course by Julia Rai which is great. Use c…
