Pink Pearls

New for Spring on mirrormirror  – this absolutely stunning bracelet by young Scottish designer Abigail Percy.

The beautifully matched freshwater pearls are handwired by Abigail and then attached to an oxidised sterling silver belcher chain.  I’m having a bit of a thing about oxidised silver at the moment – it’s really wearable, the grey colour is bang on trend and it gives jewellery an unusual contemporary edge.

I was thrilled to see that Abigail had posted up a picture of the bracelets in progress on her Flickr site.  I love getting a glimpse of designers and craftspeople at work and getting to understand a bit more about the process.

Abigail has a beautiful blog which gives loads of insight into the way she makes her beautiful jewellery and a gorgeous Flickr site which has a fascinating set of pictures of work in progress on her jewellery bench and the most inspiring glimpses into her sketchbook.

    On the topic of jewellery, I am seriously thinking of making up some of my ‘fallen blossom’ neclaces (except on ribbon rather than beaded, on account of having no actual space to work with beads).
    If I do it, maybe through summer, I’d massively appreciate you advice on what would or wouldn’t sell, pricing etc. And, naturally, you would be rewarded with a necklace of your own in the colour combo of your choosing.
    This is still a way off but I hope that by putting it in writing it will be a kick up the arse to get my house built a bit more.
