Lost and Found, and Loved Once More

Hello and thanks, to those of you that continue to support my blog and I’m very happy to have all you new comers. Good luck to you all for the draw on Friday to win one of my ‘fairy tale’ prints.

This post I would like to share with you, the beautiful jewellery of designer Katie Weiner. Photographed once again by my lovely design friend Benji, thanks Benji, you’re a star! It’s Benji’s birthday party on Thursday, Happy Birthday Ben!

Katie Weiner
Katie is an established Jewellery Designer. When Katie Weiner married two years ago, she wanted to wear contemporary pieces that reflected her own style; incorporating treasured heir looms, passed down from her Grand mother, with much loved finds of her own. The result was an enchanting collection of melded vintage treasures with a contemporary bohemian edge.

For the Brighton festival she created a unique collection of necklaces and earrings bringing these ideas together ­ so individual she can hardly bare to part with them, each one a personal favourite.

Katie is undertaking commissions transforming treasured pieces, be they old dusty brooches, hat-pins or lonely earrings which need bringing back to life as a necklaces.

What pieces do you have rolling around the bottom of your jewellery box that could be idolised and remarked upon once more”?

O’h they’re so lovely I feel like I’ve been transported back in time! Finding it difficult to choose between them, I can see how they must be very hard to give up Katie. Displayed beautifully as well with all those gorgeous cups and bottles.

Well, I don’t know about you but I’m already looking to see what I have knocking around!
