Work in progress for Chelsea Flower Show.
Many of the stands at large shows have a team of people shop fitting their stands out, I'm painting plinths, drilling, constructing in between cooking tea and bath times.
All of our pieces are made in our small rural studio, its all designed by me and made here in the UK in my workshop on the outskirts of Oxfordshire.
It is a hard job to think about everything and get it all done, the pressure to get it right and not forget something is real when your writing to do notes just before whizzing out to a football training lesson.
The other 1/2 is away working, so I'm buying paint, screws, silver, gold, stones, lunch box snacks and washing powder.
I'm extremely proud to be a part of the worlds most prestigious Flower Show, there is still a lot of work to do before set up day and the opening to you lovely people.
Please do come and say hi, we are open from Tuesday 21st to Saturday the 25th of May from 8am to 8pm (shutting earlier on Saturday at 5.30pm)
I'm excited to see the incredible gardens, beautiful plants and sculpture that always mesmerise, its such a spectacle.
If you've not made it to Chelsea Flower Show, you need to add it to your bucket list.
I'm looking forward to a very cold glass of prosecco.
Here is a snap shot of some pieces that have been made for Chelsea Flower Show.
We have moved positions this year as our stand is smaller than the one we have had previously.
Many reasons for the change, usually the other 1/2 is around to help with set up, he's not this year.
The larger the stand the larger the bills for everything else, flooring, paint, furniture, plants, the van hire etc to fit it all in.
It is a big pressure for a small business. I'm also setting up a second business over the next few months, so you'll have to keep your eyes peeled.
We are taking some of our classic favourites, the bee pendants, the stag beetle, the oak leaves along side new designs and some one of a kind pieces.
|This new leaf shield ring is set with a green tourmaline, we also have leaf rings with moonstone.|
|Our classic everyday hawthorn will be ready for trying on!|
|Simple solid silver twig stud earrings.|
|New cow parsley pendants.|
We have darkened and polished options, and a ring.
|Our iconic stag beetle necklaces with moonstones and tourmaline.|
|Gold lichen texture bands set with rainbow moonstones, green tourmaline and uncut diamonds.|
|The Game of Thrones Hawk moth as a necklace set with a labradorite.|
|Sycamore stacking ring or wedding band.|
We will take photographs of the stand build and final result.
Hope to see you at Chelsea Flower Show 2019! X
