Welcome to Auricula’s Autumn newsletter. After a busy Summer moving house and settling my younger daughter into school, I am now back in my studio 4-5 days a week. Over the past few weeks, I have been busy making my new jewellery collections. I do love this time of year and the rich plummy colours associated with Autumn. Berry tones have inspired a number of my recent pieces: deep purple amethyst, garnet and plum pearls feature along with fabulous tourmalines. Tourmalines have always been one of my favourite gemstones as they come in such an array of beautiful colours.
At the beginning of September I went on a buying trip to London and got rather carried away (as usual!) I returned with, amongst other goodies, some Russian jade, purple fluorite, lemon citrine and coral beads – I already have some designs in mind and will be making these new collections over the coming weeks. I also bought some more luxurious stitched leather cord to add to my range of charm bangles – rose gold, pewter, chocolate brown and black.
