My top 7 from the "Ursa Major" collection.
I couldn't pick just 5, and here I explain why....

1. There is such a mixture of upcycled materials in this collection.
Upcycled components from Linzy @gracieface Upcycled components from a dismantled necklace (Thankyou Ali @farrago.ali )
.
2. That amazing green upcycled vintage saucepan lid!! About 70years in age...just imagine the stories and history those bright metallic green components hold!
.
3. Lilac + Mint...who'd have thought? 
I love this colour palette and it's opened my eyes once more about the design process....Thankyou Linzy x
.
4. Those hoops!!! Wear 3 ways...Not just 1 pair of hoops, but 3 potential pairs in one design.
The bead with black specks is just lush...another upcycled element.
.
5. ALL of those carefully placed hand cut glitter pieces!! Utilising just the blue and green 'glitter' they shine!!
.
6. That texture in those polymerclay pieces Linzy carefully created.
They add another level of depth to the collection...
.
.
.
Happy Sunday beautiful people! I hope you love this collection as much as Linzy and I enjoyed creating it 💚💜

New colour palette.
New textures. 
New range on one of my very first earring designs.
.
.
I haven't made this style in about 5 (!!!) years, and a new collection is long overdue.
Can anyone guess what they will be?
They come on sterling silver / 9ct gold hooks.
.
I LOVE the chalky, wave like texture of these discontinued, discarded laminate samples

✖ URSA MAJOR ✖
.
Introducing the fourth and final earring collection to the 
@graciefaceau ✖ RHD collab!
.
Mint + Lilac + Metallic Glitter + Pearlescent shimmery tones...I love it!!
.
Throughout this collaboration, Linzy and I have worked in a methodical, organic kind of way.
Starting with the main saucepan lid colours as a base point...but chopping and changing, mixing and combining colour palettes throughout the design process.
.
I have to be honest.... I never would have chosen this colour palette. Linzy loves lilac. I don't like lilac (😳) - until NOW!!
Linzy is also unaware that the mint used here is one of my favourite colours.... so in a very organic way, it seems fitting that they (colours) finally met!! And what an impact they make!
.
I've also stated to many jeweller friends that I would NEVER use tassels in my work. However, I love the tassel pair that Linzy has designed - incorporating so many different materials and textures. They are fun and carefree!!
.
We hope you love these collections as much as we've enjoyed making them.
.
Not long now until RELEASE date:
Friday Sept 24th 7pm AEST 
Set those alarms!! 💚💜
.

[ Interesting fact: "The saucepan" constellation is made from the very brightest star in the constellation of 'Ursa Major'. We just had to include this name in our collaboration! ]

It's vintage.
It's coffee / chocolate
It's just perfect
It's an op shop find
.
.
Whilst I will find it incredibly hard to saw into this saucepan lid, as it's just to sweet - I am justifying doing just that as...
1. I'm almost out of coffee / chocolate pan goodness and I NEED MORE!!
2. The pan component will look incredible and work well with a few holes drilled into the base - then used as a plant pot / succulent pot.

Happy days!!

✖ ALL THAT GLITTERS ✖
.
Linzy @graciefaceau has made these luxe hoops for the  #cosmicgirl collaboration, and oh golly gosh - they needed their very own post...their very own story.
.
There are just 5 pairs of 5 different colours.
.
They are stunning; and take the meaning of hand made to an entirely  new level!!!!
.
.
After I hand cut "glitter" from vintage saucepan lid edges and offcuts, Linzy came up with the insanely cool (yet incredibly time consuming idea!!) of hand placing each piece of glitter.
.
Using tweezers(!!) to hold each individual piece; she then set about placing the "glitter" with thought and precision into these (polymerclay) hoops.
.
.
Honestly......they're incredible.... and I think they speak volumes about Linzy's talents!
.
.
Stay tuned for close ups and perhaps another collection coming soon!
