Raindrop jewellery

The weather has well and truly turned. Looking out the jewellery school windows we can see the “Gherkin” and other London landmarks wreathed in grey cloud instead of sparkling in the late burst of sunshine. And we wouldn’t dare nip to the shop without a brolly.

But even if it is grey and damp outside, there is still inspiration to be found as the collection of raindrop jewellery  below proves. Silver and crystal drops maybe the first thoughts you have about raindrop jewellery but here are some other approaches using shape, different materials or colours.

Rain can be fun and quirky too as in this pendant by Riverwalk Designs. Think about creating your own weather scene in resin.

 

rainbow jewellery making

We couldn’t talk about the rain with out having a rainbow. So to cheer you up is a cuff by LJS team favourite Elizabeth Raine. Why not think about all the ways you could create your own rainbow – enamel, beads, Perspex and resin come to mind
