I'm just going to say it: I can't wait for Spring to arrive. To start seeing green shoots and flower heads appearing in the garden again, for daylight after 4.30pm and the feeling that bright, warm(ish) days are on the way.
Ok, I know it's only January, but with Spring in mind, I'm delighted to launch a number of new products which are now LIVE online and available to order. These include two major new collections: FLOCK and CONNECT.
FLOCK is my range of new home gifts and accessories, inspired by my love of vintage print and pattern with a modern twist. The colours are earthy and muted and are designed to co-ordinate with lots of interior themes.
My new jewellery collection is called CONNECT and it’s a combination of some of my favourite shapes, lines and marks along with a new softer colour palette. Since Christmas I’ve been spending time going back to basics with my printing: cutting into lino blocks and hand pressing then onto different types of paper to experiment with texture and colour depth; mark making with writing ink, charcoal and my trusty Sharpie pens. It’s been a really enjoyable and nourishing process during quite a stressful and heavy month and when I starting thinking about a name for the collection, the word CONNECT seemed perfect.
The pieces are made from lightweight and hypo-allergenic aluminium and have Sterling Silver fixings. They’re designed to be easy to wear (they’re so light you’ll hardly notice them) and are a nice way to give your outfit a little contemporary lift - wherever you’re wearing (did someone say Zoom?!).
In addition to the two new ranges, I've released a new range of square format greetings cards featuring designs which should suit lots of occasions. They're slightly larger than previous cards I've produced (at nearly 15cm square), so they're ideal for keeping in touch with your contacts.
And finally, you'll also find some new artwork in the PRINTS section of the shop. I've absolutely loved designing these - I've used a soft, calming palette along with my signature block shapes. I really hope you like them, too!
