Purple...Rich and Regal....



I have always loved the colour purple....Rich and Regal!
Here are three "Hot off the design bench" Renee Blackwell Design Pieces....Earrings and pendant both Vintage French Buttons from the late 1940's set in sterling silver-Ring Purple CZ set in sterling silver.


Royalty and Spirituality:
Purple is royalty. A mysterious color, purple is associated with both nobility and spirituality. The opposites of hot red and cool blue combine to create this intriguing color.
Nature of Purple:
Purple has a special, almost sacred place in nature: lavender, orchid, lilac, and violet flowers are often delicate and considered precious. Because purple is derived from the mixing of a strong warm and strong cool color it has both warm and cool properties.
Culture of Purple:
The color of mourning for widows in Thailand, purple was the favorite color of Egypt's Cleopatra. It has been traditionally associated with royalty in many cultures. Purple robes were worn by royalty and people of authority or high rank. The Purple Heart is a U.S. Military decoration given to soldiers wounded in battle.

On the road again....and Loving the Sea.....

renee blackwell design pendant...the colours of the ocean....

I have been “on the road” again as I so often am…this time flying into the ACT of Canberra, then driving to the WONDERFUL charming seaside town of Merimbula. I think I’ve made my husband nervous by stating …”I could move here…” it is just a lovely spot.

I love the ocean, well, who doesn’t?…the blues, greens, aqua’s of the sea..the smell, sound and feel.

Peaceful and calm.

Diamond-April Birthstone

Ok...so the above ring by Renee Blackwell Design is NOT a diamond...but a lovely CZ...

Lucky you if your birthday is in April because your birthstone is the Diamond.

(I’m writing this post under the premise “better late than never” as April is half over)


I have never actually worked with diamonds, although I often joke "in my next jewellery life I will be a diamond dealer" being able to fit an entire inventory in the palm of ones hand.


Note: I am not even touching the political, social and economic issues surrounding diamonds....I leave this for another blog, another day...or not!

Mary Rose Pottery....Simply Breathtaking!

Cups & Mugs
Ever heard of this chick? Mary Rose Pottery.....check her out! Amazing.
She really is one amazing artist....love just about everything about her work...colour, texture, happiness. My good friend Felicity purchased a piece of Mary Rose's work which she gifted to me..a lovely small bowl-This is where my rings live. (OK...not all of them, but a few at a time..)


Mary Rose Young is a ceramic artist who lives and creates her pottery in the Forest of Dean in the UK. Each piece carries the individuality of the artist's own hand with her unique blend of beauty and humour.

She works with a team of 5 artists and her pieces find their way to homes around the world.
