neighbour, wedding-supplier friend, & super stylish mama to one cute Ru, alison makes jewellery inspired by the art of collecting things – the fondness people have for an object & the story between the piece & the person …

inspired by shapes & textures, & often incorporating ‘found’ things into her craft – alisons jewellery is delicate & intricate – even the larger necklaces & brooches in the collections have a dainty charm.
the images, by caro weiss photography*,  show alisons work perfectly. the tones & the layers.  natural, simple & beautiful.

i’ve been excited to share this shoot for such a long time – perfect, almost ethereal, captured moments showcasing alisons jewellery in a very real way rather than stagnant still life product shots i see so often.
i would frame that last image for my home.  i find it really evocative.**

alison has a beautiful website & online shop, as well as selling at various shops & on some lovely online stores. find a list of stockists here. i love her creative process – the rummaging in junk shops & collecting of curios. all of which inspire her work.  see a day in alisons life here. from her gorgeous home to her super cool studio. filmed by our good friend eileen of sugar8.

big loves & happy shopping – c x

* caro is our gorgeous german friend and our very own wedding photographer. you’ll like her – she wears brilliant shoes.

** i want to own  a l l  the tiny stack rings so i look like that when i’m touching my head too.
