Some great new summer jewellery by Driftwood Beach is now available from Dezigne - perfect additions to your summer wardrobe !

chunky necklace wood jasper leather
                                 Fabulous Wood, Jasper and Leather Necklace  £23.50

wood ceramic stone leather necklace
                       Stunning Wood, Ceramic, Stone and Leather Necklace  £35.00

Most of my jewellery is inspired by the ocean, the beach and the coastline so I love to use pebble shaped beads in natural materials such as wood and semi-precious stone. The wood twist beads I have used in the necklace above reminds me of driftwood -smooth to the touch and ever so slightly faded. The bright aqua ceramic ovals and dyed turquoise chips really contrast well with the wood.
I think the wood and jasper necklace has quite a designer look-I must admit I find it difficult to do asymetrical jewellery  - it's far more difficult than it looks!
One of my favourite Etsy  makers Lorelei Eurto gets it right every time! 

I have recently been asked to make some bridal jewellery for a lady who is getting married in St Ives in Cornwall later this year -which is wonderful as St Ives is one of my favourite places and I am so pleased to have been asked to make this jewellery which will feature some gorgeous freshwater pearls.
