‘Flight’ Collection

This concept came about after talking to a regular customer. Years ago I made a collection of automated objects in silver & slate, scenes that came to life when their little handles were turned. Grasses swayed in the breeze, a Noah’s ark bobbed in the waves, ducks swam amongst bullrushes etc some of which were commissions but some I couldn’t bring myself to sell as they meant too much to me & they remain on display in our boutique. I’d been wanting to revisit them & after our chat about sadly loosing both of her parents, I suggested a new kind of vessel to store ashes that would signify flight within each scene. Again using silver & slate, the ashes could be held within the silver & slate box. I’ve loved working on these can’t wait to explore their potential with not only storing ashes but for christening gifts (I could work to any theme), wedding or anniversary gifts or just as objects for the home.

GOLDEN COTTEN REEL

I collaborated with a dentist on this piece.. To mark his ‘cotton’ wedding anniversary, he asked me to make the reel part of a cotton reel in solid 9ct gold.. He then (with his dentistry skills!) covered the thread in a dental compound to encase & protect the piece. I stamped their initials onto the base ‘label’ for a little extra detail, along with the silver tag to give it an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ oddness.

Our Customers

Getting to know our customers over the years & creating pieces for them to mark important life events is always such a joy.. This lovely lady was no exception. Having made her mothers wedding band (one of my first ever 18ct white gold Strand rings set with a Diamond) many (many!) moons ago, I’d made pieces for her 18th & 21st & lots of treats for the pair over the years. I was overjoyed to be contacted in secret by her, then, boyfriend to make her engagement ring. To be asked to design their wedding bands was an honour.. Echoing her mothers Strand ring, this time in 9ct white gold, setting 2 diamonds in yellow gold, representing the two coming together.. 10 granulation beads mark how many years the pair have been together. His, a simple 9ct gold band. Congratulations you two 💕 For 100’s more examples, check out our http://www.honeybournejewellery.com/product-category/bespoke/wedding/HJ_BESPOKE_9ct Strand wiht Diamonds
