    Valentine's Day can be a touchy subject.

    Do you go for it all hearts and flowers or is it just another commercialised out-dated tradition?

  • 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.

  • All Bjorg jewellery half price for one week only!

    Tonight is the Norse celebration Walpurgisnacht, and so to celebrate we are giving 50% off Bjorg jewellery for one week only (or until stocks last, which won't be long!).

    The festival of Walpurgis is a night of both revelry and darkness.  The nine nights of April 22nd to April 30th are venerated as rememberance of the All Father's self-sacrifice upon the World Tree Yggdrasil.

    Was

    It was on the ninth night (April 30th, Walpurgisnacht) that he beheld the Runes, grasped them, and ritually died for an instant.  At that moment, all the light in the 9 worlds is extinguished, and utter chaos reigns.

    Was

    At the final stroke of midnight the light returns in dazzling brilliance and the bale fires are lit.  On Walpurgisnacht, the dead have full sway upon the Earth; it is the ending night of the wild hunt.

    Was

    May 1st is the festival of Thrimilci; the beginning of Summer.  Thrimilci is a festival of joy and fertility.

    Was

    Celebs and stylistas alike all love Bjorg jewellery and this is the perfect time to grab some for yourself!

  • Feel it! Say it! Show it!

    As if you needed any reminding, Valentines Day is only a week away, so are you ready or are you still searching for the perfect gift for the special person in your life?

    Show your love this Valentines with a gift that will last much much longer than flowers or chocolates (especially in my house!).

    Here are a few of my favourites from our Valentines gift guide -

    This red shamballa bracelet has everything!  Sparkles, fashionable, affordable and most of all it is red, the colour of love!

    Sphere Of Life necklaces are an amazing Valentines gift as you can choose the sentiment or message you would like to send.  One of my absolute favourites of this range (because I am a bit of an old romantic) is Message In A Sphere - I Love You.  We also have 20% off all of our Sphere Of Life necklaces up until Valentines Day!

    Not really a hearts and flowers kind of person? Then how about this for a twist on the traditional heart necklace from Norwegian designer Bjorg?  This is a way of truly giving your heart to the one you love!

    Of course we haven't forgotten about all the men out there that like a bit of bling too!  These gorgeous crystal heart and arrow cufflinks will brighten up his day and of course he will think you every time he sees them!

    However you choose to spend you Valentines Day this year, be it out for a special meal or curled up with the one you love watching a film (mine will be at work and then at zumba!) I hope you have a fantastic day!

  • Childrens Jewellery - on the up?

    Here in Bo'ness the town is beginning to settle down after the annual Childrens Fair.  We are very proud to hold the biggest childrens fair in the UK and each year it gets better and better.  As ever the run up to Fair is a busy time for us especially for beautiful jewellery for fairies and flower girls and this year was certainly no different except this year the boys were getting in on the jewellery action as well.

    Our D For Diamond collection is the first stop for all little girls for their special day. 

    The most popular necklace this year for fairies was the gorgeous Tinkerbell pendant who has a single twinkling diamond set into her wing. 

    Of course this Tinkerbell is not only for fairies she would love to be worn by any little princess. 

    Older girls love butterflies and this year again was no exception.  The many butterfly pendants from D For Diamond caught the eye of lots of flower girls. 

    One of my favourite butterfly necklaces is this one with three butterflies looking as though they are caught mid flight.  There is of course  single diamond in one wing of the second butterfly.  The way they move as the wearer moves gives them a real look of being alive!

    And this year the boys were not to be left out!  My son, Josh, who is 9 has a love of jewellery and quite often comes into the shop and has a try on and lets us know what he likes!  Do boys want to wear jewellery?

    In the case of boys in Bo'ness - yes they do!  We introduced a boys charm bracelet to our childrens range and it has been a hit!  Boys seem to love the colourful beads and charms from Silver & Co, frogs, peace signs, Ipods and initials have proven to be the most popular. 

    So is the attitude to boys jewellery changing as men are becoming more interested in accessories or are the young boys in Bo'ness leading the way?
