Facet-nating & Fionn-tastic :) / by geraldine kane

We are just recovering from our first experience of exhibiting at Showcase Ireland. I took plenty of photos, so just need a little time to go through them before giving you the insider lowdown on all things Showcase.

Everyone was really positive about our jewellery and stand, especially excited about our new range of angular Fionn 'gems'.  Due to popular demand, we are exploring using 18k yellow and rose gold plating over sterling silver for some on-trend luxury that won't break the bank. These gems will be mostly matt-finish, though I may sprinkle them with a few shiny surfaces for some texture and contrast. I'm also exploring the possibility of partial plating, mixing silver and gold finishes for some extra edginess.  So many possibilities! Yesterday, I was back working at my jewellery bench making necklaces that will accompany the earrings photographed below.

Our gem earrings will be available to buy in the coming weeks. *smile*

[I know, I know, I said that about the Flora Collection that hasn't surfaced yet, but I decided it was important to take extra time to develop it further to a standard I'm totally happy with!  These gems, on the other hand, are funky, elegant and ready to go!]

Right, back to the work bench!
