Simply Sublime!

Rather excitingly, our jewellery is now being stocked in the lovely Sublime shops in Clerkenwell (on St John's Road) and Victoria Park (on Victoria Park Road).   They have a selection of pearl-cluster earrings (like the ones below) and silver and chaldecony jewellery.  If you're in the area, pop in and have a look!


Pretty Greens

Here are a few things we've made recently...we seem to be in a green phase!  The big earrings are green turquoise stones on silver chain and earring hooks.  The necklace and the little earrings are made using chaldecony stones and gold-filled* wire and chain (although the little butterfly on the necklace is actually solid 9ct gold).

*Just in case you were wondering, "gold-filled" (also known as "rolled gold" or "rolled gold plate") is made from a solid layer of gold bonded to a base metal such as silver or brass. Gold-filled items, even with daily wear, can last up to 30 years - unlike gold plated jewellery which has a much, much thinner layer of gold.

Box Fresh

Here are a few photos of the printing press process - quite messy and time consuming, but lots of lovely boxes at the end!

In the Circus...

...is where you'll now find Charlie & Bird. After a successful pop up stall in Brixton Village Market last Saturday, Circus, a beautiful and creative (the fit out and even the furniture are all cleverly crafted from cardboard) little shop selling gorgeous vintage and handmade treasures are now also stocking Charlie & Bird's jewellery. We are very excited...we are in the window...

Circus is located on the corner of 5th Avenue in the Brixton Village Market: http://circus5thave.blogspot.com/
