Summer Inspiration…

by Daniel Bentley on February 6, 2012

This summer holiday was brilliant. We escaped to the cool of the Southern Highlands SW of Sydney and spent 10 days unwinding after a super hectic Christmas trading period.

I found time to sit under a tree and sketch a few new jewellery designs for some up-coming collections. I was not supposed to think of work whilst on holidays though I’ve always drawn for relaxation.

Anyway, for the last few weeks I’ve been at the bench creating the new Sterling silver models from my sketches and it’s been such an enjoyable experience.

I’ll be posting some photos of the new jewellery designs when they’re done though in the mean time, here is a Sterling silver ring with 18 ct. gold, I made recently using a gem I bought in Idar-Oberstein, Germany. I designed this big piece using the facets of the specially cut Citrine as inspiration. It’s a one-off and goes in my private collection. Let me know what you think!
