Designs From Ire. We just love sunstone! Irene never fails to create stunning and intricate designs.

'Possibly my favourite ring I have ever made | not only is it pink, this incredible piece of glass was naturally tumbled by the sea into a shape of a butterfly wing. I can not describe to you how lucky I am to own this incredibly rare one off sea glass. I know for a fact I will never find anything like it ever again...'

- Sadie Jewellery. Dreamy huh? Sea glass jewellery is something we love, especially as we live beside the sea. We're always refreshing Sadie's Instagram to see what she's making next!

For all you mermaid lovers! If you love being beside the sea, with the sand between your toes - these earrings are made for you. What a gorgeous design by Lisa from Flutterbies Den

- Blownsilver. So intricate, the detail is amazing and how amazing does that labradorite look?

'I love working with and supporting brands that make it possible and encourage us to explore our creativity. And, @kernowcraft is a company that does just that. They have supplies for jewellers of all experience levels and abilities. And, I’m proud to say that they played a key role in my journey to becoming a full-time jeweller. They probably didn’t even know this, but they kept me company on days when I didn’t feel like I had much purpose at all. I LOVED making these earrings for someone special for Christmas.'
