The Colour Inspired Project

In 2019

I asked people to send me pictures of their favourite outfits to inspire me to make bespoke jewellery, for free to match. You can see Claire's finished piece and inspiring skirt in bright fuchsia pink and lime green here.

In 2020

Once the first lockdown hit I decided we all needed a bit of a boost, including me as I was seriously struggling with motivation and inspiration. So I ran this project again, asking for images of your favourite outfits.

Rainbow Charity Jewellery

Very soon after I asked for photos one of my regular customers, Kate, sent me a photo of her at work, and a small charity collection of jewellery was sparked by the picture of her surrounded by rainbows. 30% of the sales of these designs was donated to the mental health charity MIND.

Making this necklace for Kate was quite an emotional thing for both of us. She was exhausted and overwhelmed to receive the necklace, I was stressed and worried about my income - very different reactions to the pandemic, but somehow connecting over this gave us both a boost.

I also choose two other customers to make bespoke pieces for free, inspired by their outfits. This is Becky, she said,

"I just wanted to let you know that the necklace and earrings arrived safely today and to say thank you so much. They are just stunning! Perfectly wrapped, so delicate and the colours are beautiful - I love them!

It’s so kind and generous of you to make these for me, especially in a year like this, and I will really treasure them. I never thought I would have any jewellery made especially for me! I can’t wait to wear them with my skirt."

I also choose two other customers to make bespoke pieces for free, inspired by their outfits. This is Louise, she said,

"I don’t know what to say to thank you enough - I was speechless when I opened the box! The necklace and earrings are absolutely beautiful and compliment the colours in the shirt perfectly! They are much smaller and delicate than I had imagined and I love them!
I cannot thank you enough."
