Oh my I was excited when my post just came through the letterbox today, it was some absolutely adorable jewelry from the lovely Etsy Store; ‘Eleanor Makes Nice’
Eleanor lives nearby us in rural Wiltshire and In 2009 earned a BA in music composition with visual arts practices from Dartington College of Arts in Devon, where she specialised in the hammered dulcimer and folk harp. In Eleanor’s words:
I had always found high street jewellery too gaudy, traditional jewellery too fussy, and set out to create the simple, unusual and practical jewellery I wanted to wear.
I find inspiration for my pieces in natural history collections, English folk music, and the wildlife and countryside that surrounds my home.
I make each piece entirely by hand – saw piercing sheet metal, drilling holes, soldering components and connecting pieces. My current range is entirely made to order, so there are no mass-production methods involved.
Here are just some of the beautiful pieces available in her lovely Etsy store:
Now for the best bit – your chance to win these beautiful bird earings. I can proudly say I own a pair too and they are just so nice to wear!:
