What an exciting month February has been for Monkey Puzzle! As well as welcoming several new designers to our brand-new website, we visited the Spring Fair Exhibition at the NEC.
At the Spring Fair Exhibition, a charming young Scotsman caught our eye! His name is Adam and he’s from ‘Two Skies’, located in the beautiful Scottish city of Perth. Adam makes his jewellery from old pieces of delft pottery that are set into silver which are made into simple, effectively- designed pendants, rings and earrings.
I think Adams’ beautiful rang of leaf jewellery ('Forever Leaves') will be an instant favourite with everyone. Each leaf is handpicked, preserved and dried. The chlorophyll is then removed to leave a skeletal leaf. Each leaf is hand painted to make it conductive. It is then transformed using a unique process which covers it in a desired precious metal coating. The results are stunning and available to purchase now in-store and to pre-order online.
We also got to catch up with one of our ever-popular designers, Collette Waudby and were delighted to learn that Collette has been awarded ‘BJA Jewellery Designer of the Year’. Her first product range was launched via the BJA’s first ever ‘Debut Design’ stand at the Spring Fair in 1996, so to achieve such a high accolade at the same event must have been incredible.
