  -  01.10.20 FSC Case Study  - 

 

To mark TipToe Jewellery becoming a promotional license holder for FSC we wrote a case study about our FSC certified packaging for their website.

 

TipToe Jewellery Packaging Ring Hoop Earrings

 

'Becoming a FSC promotional licence holder means that we can share the story of our packaging with our customers and help them to feel even better about purchasing from us. We all want to know that we are making responsible buying choices and the recognisable FSC logo makes that easier for us. At a time when we need to protect our forests more than ever, we are proud to promote and support the work of FSC. TipToe for Trees.'

  -  27.08.20 DYNAMIC DUNESCAPES Blog Feature  - 

 

Dynamic Dunescapes

 

Dynamic Dunescapes is a valuable project to rejuvenating some of England & Wales' most important sand dunes for people, communities and wildlife.

I was delighted to write a feature for their blog about my work and the ways in which I am inspired by dunes: ‘Footprints in the Sand - A jewellery journey’.

 

TipToe Jewellery Tracks in the Sand

 

‘There is something about sand and sand dunes that has always captured my imagination. The way sand flows through your fingertips, the mesmerising way it falls through an egg-timer and how the invisible wind can create huge, graceful yet fickle dunes.’

  -  03.08.20 RING Exhibition at Diana Porter Contemporary Jewellery  -  

 

The Way Diamond Cluster Engagement Ring Yellow 18ct Gold TipToe Jewellery

 

Until the end of October 2020 you can get up close and personal with a small selection of my rings which are exhibiting at Diana Porter Contemporary Jewellery in Bristol.

 

The Way Diamond Cluster Engagement Ring Bridal Stacking Set Wide Arrow Band TipToe Jewellery

 

You can try on for size the ultimate bridal set consisting of my halo diamond cluster ring in recycled 18ct yellow and white gold, and two fitted recycled 18ct white gold diamond set band which nestle neatly either side of the cluster for some added sparkle. 

Also on display is a wide band in recycled 9ct yellow gold. This ring is very versatile and unisex - it would make a highly distinctive men’s band or a women’s statement ring. 

These rings feature arrow like patterns which are inspired by the patterns of bird tracks left in snow.

  -  28.07.20 Hothouse 2020  -  

 

This year I have taken part in the Craft Council’s Hothouse program. Hothouse is a development program for emerging designers spread out over the course of a few months. It includes seminars, gallery visits, networking events and most recently a lot of time on Zoom…. 

The program has been instrumental in aiding my progression over the last few months. From business modelling and branding to creative thinking, the program has included wide reaching subject matter that has encouraged all the participants to examine our practices in new ways. 

 Crafts Council

 

In addition to curating the Hothouse program The Crafts Council also has an excellent directory of over 700 makers from the UK using all kinds of disciplines. The directory is a centre for craft excellence and is the perfect tool to use if you are looking for makers. You can explore the directory by following this link.
