  • The High School Prom

    The American Institution of the High School Prom has now become tradition here.

    The Prom season is upon us and the excitement is building. How and when did that happen? What happened to the school disco in the gym hall?

    The first recorded account of a prom as we know it was by a student at Amherst College, Massachusetts, in 1894, who described what would now be recognised as a formal senior ball. Proms on the other hand, have evolved from something traditional to something decadent.

    The very idea of a school leavers’ prom has invoked ideas of celebrity and rockstar lifestyle. The more expensive the dress and the flashier the limo, the better,


    Girls (or their parents) are buying dresses worth £800-£1000 or even more, and paying significant amounts of money in order to get their hair styled and nails manicured like a Hollywood celebrity attending an awards ceremony or a film premiere. Add to this the cost of jewellery, photography and limo hire, it's an expensive rite of passage!

    We can bemoan the expense and the Americanisation - but then we see the dresses (swoon) and just bask in their gorgeousness!

    Here are some of my favourites .......

    short long blue

    Short or long?


    Not for the shrinking violet!


    Words fail me - this is just gorgeous!

    short prom

    Sweet, traditional Prom style


    Love love love this one!

    Maybe mums get so into their daughters' Prom is because like me they never got the opportunity to wear dresses like this or have the whole celebrity for a day experience.

    Perhaps you have been left some jewellery by someone close and would love to keep the history and memories but turn them into an item you would wear with pride.  Come and have an informal chat where we will run through the possibilities and give you the best guidance to help you decide how you would like the jewellery used.


    It may be as simple as repairing or rebuilding the items to their original design or redesigning and remodelling the piece to give it a modern contemporary feel, or starting from a blank canvas and designing a completely new piece of jewellery using stones or other elements of the original.

    Whichever way you choose to go you can be assured we will treat the pieces with utmost respect and when finished the new handmade creation will be a compliment to the originals.

    When you don't know exactly what you want but know you want something different, contemporary and handmade, then our in-house design team cantalk you through all of your options. We take time to listen, find out a little about you, your lifestyle, your likes and most importantly your dislikes.  From there we will come up with some ideas and develop those along with you until we find the design you love.

    Every handmade design or remodelling project is unique and therefore impossible to put a cost on until it has been defined. If you have a budget to work to it's best to be upfront about it at the initial consultation as we can advise on the best way to work within your comfort zone.

    We do not charge for consultations or design work and will give you a fixed price once a final design has been agreed.

  • Kim Mitchell - Best Of British Designers Interview

    As part of our Best Of British Designers celebration I got the opportunity to interview our wonderful British jewellery designers.

    Today our featured British designer is Edinburgh based Kim Mitchell -

    Kim graduated in 2010 from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design with an Honours Degree in Jewellery and Metal Design. Since then she has been working in her home city of Edinburgh, creating hand crafted sterling silver jewellery using a variety of both traditional and modern silversmithing techniques.

    Why did you decide to work in jewellery design?

    'At university I discovered how much I love working in 3D - and with metal.  I love designing and making something that people can have fun with and will last forever.'

    What was the first piece of jewellery you made?

    'My first piece of jewellery was a large round silver and brass brooch which I gave to my Granny as a gift.  We were asked to use a mixture of materials so I set a piece of green sea glass next to a silver flower silhouette.  It's a similar theme to the work I do now so its interesting to look back and see how your style develops.'

    What is your biggest inspiration?

    'My work is mainly influenced by nature, in particular flowers and trees.  I am inspired by the shadows thrown by their shapes and try to capture this in metal.'

    Who do you admire most in the jewellery industry?

    'I love Italian goldsmith Giovanni Corvaja.  His work is absolutely stunning and really challenges what is believed possible in goldsmithing techniques.  I also love going to see the Degree Shows and am always amazed by the work of new British designers.'

    and finally, which celebrity (past or present) would you love to see wearing one of your designs?

    'I would love to see my designs on the red carpet, on someone like Sienna Miller or Emma Watson and of course Kate Middleton.  It would be even better if it was a special gift from Will!'

    For today only you can get your hands on your own piece of Kim Mitchell jewellery with 15% off!  Simply enter KIM15 at the checkout for your discount to be applied.

  • Nikki Ainscow - Best Of British Designers Interview

    As part of our Best Of British Designers celebration I got the opportunity to interview our wonderful British jewellery designers.

    We are continuing today with the very talented Nikki Ainscow of Maneggi -

    Why did you decide to work in jewellery design?

    'I have a back round in textile craft, when I graduated I wanted to work with accessories keeping true to my textile roots.  I specialised in embroidery so this was the basis of Maneggi, creating necklaces through manipulation techniques to provide and alternative to conventional jewellery.  This has developed through the use of ribbon and leather to provide a range of jewellery suitable for metal allergy sufferers, as all my designs are metal free.'

    What was the first piece of jewellery you made?

    'The first piece I made for Maneggi was my ribbon necklace, this is the simple design that inspired my whole range by developing this technique and style introducing new materials to create my collection of metal free jewellery.'

    What is your biggest inspiration?

    'I am inspired by a wide variety of things and always carry my 'bible' with me which is full of sketches, magazine cuttings and colour swatches that I collect on a daily basis.  I am influenced by architecture, origami and manipulation techniques.  I am obsessed with lines folds, pleats and structure which is evident in my collections, I aim to create structure through repetition in all my jewellery.'

    Who do you admire most in the jewellery industry?

    'Yu-Ping Lin's work is amazing I admire her use of origami and colour to create structurally complex fashion accessories and jewellery.  I first came across her work at The Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair last year and was instantly amazed.  We are both inspired by similar notions of architecture and origami with very different outcomes.  I love her use of traditional materials and techniques of Chinese rice paper and origami to create fashion forward designs.'

    and finally which celebrity (past or present) would you love to see wearing one of your designs?

    'I would love to see Kate Middleton wearing a Maneggi necklace, I think my contemporary use of pearls and ribbon along with my neutral colour palette would suit her classic yet modern style.  One day hopefully!'

    For today only you can get your hands on your own piece of Maneggi jewellery with 15% off!  Simply enter MNG15 at the checkout for your discount to be applied.
