it really feels like it today.
fresh & blue but with an icy chill in the wind.

and we have neglected our garden for a little while now.
it's covered in autumn leaves .... but it's still there.

think we may have some more collections coming up soon.

enjoy your weekend.

our solo exhibition

our solo exhibition at makers gallery in taunton has finished now - we have left a few pieces for sale in the gallery for their xmas exhibition so you can still pop in and buy our work if you didn't get to the solo exhibition.

thanks to everyone that went to see our display, we had such lovely comments in our comment book which makes all our hard work setting up the exhibition worth while. thought we'd share a few of the comments here for you. there are more images from our solo exhibition {here}

billy bride

we spotted one of these beautiful rings on the man make home blog and had to investigate further. these stunning raw crystal rings are made by renee warne as part of her billy bride jewellery collection. all pieces are made in australia using indigene australian materials.

we think they are beautiful and we love the way she is passionate about keeping the stones so raw so as not to distract from their natural state.

there are more lovely rings on her website and do check out her blog too (details below).

lita - pyrite, energy & fire, boosts confidence & communication and overcomes indecision.
orin - smokey topaz, a divination stone, brings heightened awareness & clarity of mind.
ieke - clear quartz, a harmonizing stone, to amplify energy & thought.
issa - lapis lazuli, truth & protection, brings harmony & self knowledge, stimulates objectivity.

wo & wé collection

we had a lovely email the other day from Olivier at wo & wé collection telling us how he liked our work and asking us if we would have a look at his work. so, we had a look and we loved it and we thought we'd share it with you.

Olivier is a light "creator-assembler" and makes the coolest adjustable vintage lamps, restored & re-assembled from industrial components. He is based in Lyon, France and has been creating, restoring and assembling his pieces over the last four months.

we think they are very cool. we love where he photographs them too. hope you enjoy looking at his work as much as we did.
