Rose Bay Country

  1. Summer has come to Rose Bay lands! That's the theory, anyway. What we've got is the occasional warm – sometimes really nice day – and lots of cold and blowy days in-between. I've heard people ask why everyone throws off their coats and jumpers at the the first sign of sun here in the UK – its because we've learnt to take what we can get – there might not be any more coming at all...

    Last month I promised something new for the youngsters, and below you will find a picture of my new acrylic children's necklaces!

    Aren't they fun? Bright and cheerful designs, with smiley faces, spots, swirls, and/or pretty colours, fastening with a lobster clasp. The necklaces measure 14” long, and would be great for children aged between about 5 and 12. They retail at £9 and are up on sale in my Etsy shop.

  2. Easter has come and gone, and if you celebrate it I hope it was wonderful for you.

    Spring has well and truly sprung. Daffodils are bursting forth and various spring flowers are starting to show their heads – and promptly getting them knocked off by the blowy weather we've been having.

    Here at Rose Bay, my spring and summer ranges have, and still are, being made, photographed and listed, so watch out for lots of cheerful and bright colours, fun stuff, toys for the grown-ups. Plus something coming soon for the young-uns.

    Last month we went up to Bath ostensibly to see the fashion but also to see the jewellery of the times, and I've now been inspired by some of the beautiful pieces on display, especially those from the Georgian and Regency periods. Inspiration can come from many places...

    My rainbow hematite earrings are now back in my Etsy shop, as are a load of new clipon earrings.

    On here I have listed some cute bronze-bow Steampunk earrings to add to my beautiful ceramic ones. These are so much fun and you don't even need to be a fan of Steampunk to wear them!

    My new wrap bracelets are delightful in rustic ceramics, gorgeous fabric from Liberty's of London and with (moveable) sterling silver beads for decoration. These wraps are very generously sized and perfect for those of you who like, or need, more wrap in your bracelets.
