Funky orange style wins July competition

This vibrant Perspex necklace and bangle set from Rachael Chapman stole the show in our first monthly jewellery making competition. The unusual design and great photography really made her entry stand out from the crowd.

Rachael, who sells her work under the name Make It Funky, says: “Earlier this year I took Michael Milloy’s Perspex course at LJS; such a fun day and it really changed my jewellery making style. The fantastic colours are an inspiration in themselves, they lead me to thoughts of retro sci -fi films like Barbarella. Currently I’m just selling at local markets but am in the process of opening an ASOS Marketplace boutique.”

You can find out more about Rachael at her blog Make It Funky  or you can follow her on twitter @ladymakeitfunky

There was a wide range of styles and techniques among July’s entries – thanks to everyone who entered and shared the fruits of their talent.. You can take a look at them on our Facebook and Pinterest pages, and if the images inspire you, don’t forget to see if we have a class to help.

Rachael’s prize is a voucher that will allow her to attend one of our fun and professional one-day courses and we’ll be offering the same prize for August, so get those entries in now by emailing We are really looking forward to seeing your creative endeavours.

    Goodness! That orange necklace and bracelet is just stonking. It’s refreshing to see chic, funky and fun pieces of jewellery especially since it’s summer. I would love one of these.
