It has been awhile since my last blog post on here. I've been working non stop on new designs for our FW Collection, and these will hit the website next month for all of you lovelies to purchase. I've also been getting ready for a very busy season ahead, and I'm still flabbergasted that September is just around the corner! My goodness grief this summer was too short! Not to mention that once you have a little one, time seems to fly by.
As some of you already know, we were recently interviewed by the lovely Nancy Won from FLARE Magazine on our geometric lines. Last year I made the decision to take my 3D work, and have it digitally printed. Casting jewellery is nothing new to us jewellers, so I was trying to find a way to cast my geometric pieces. Unfortunately, this couldn't be done as the lines in my work were too fine. The only way that we could recreate strong pieces, was to 3D print them in various metals. This was a whole new experience for me, and was super exciting/nerve wracking. Basically we took all of my pieces, and scanned them. With the scanned pieces, they are then transferred to the machine which prints them in various materials. You can print in precious metals, stainless steel, plastics and believe it or not sandstone! Long story short, our Crystallized Statement Necklace was shown in FLARE and a little snippet from the interview. The magazine is available, and if you turn to page 129, we are at the top of the page!
