I want some nice silver jewellery that's as far away from Argos and H. Samuel as you can get!

this sort of thing
I like the stuff that looks like it was either made in 500BC or by a silversmith with a fine art degree.

Dont want much grin

I just linked to this site on another thread - some of the stuff is lovely. What sort of budget do you have?

Dinny Hall ?

go to covent garden, some lovely craft places pitch up there

JackieNo Mon 06-Oct-08 16:48:52

If you have a massive budget, I'm currently really coveting these ones, but there are no prices on the website, and the only one I can find is a bracelet for £80-oddsad. so I guess it's all really pricey.

Definately Etsy

I've just had a ring made by someone off there and its gorgeous.

Soprana Mon 06-Oct-08 16:52:42

yep, it's etsy all the way!

TsarChasm Mon 06-Oct-08 16:58:04

OOoh a woman after my own heart smile

I'm a jewellery designer by trade,I use Sterling Silver and semi precious stones at the moment, but I have just started learning to work with PMC, its a clay that when fired with a blow torch turns into Real Silver. You can pretty much make anything you like .

My PMC designs aren't good enough to show at the moment, but there are a lot of good PMC artists out there, doing a PMC Artists search on Google would give you thousands to choose from.

Just to give you an idea , here is a link to a PMC artist I admire

Dower & Hall have some nice things

MadameOvary Mon 06-Oct-08 17:01:09

Hmm, not sure Jackieno, I would go to £80 for something fabulous but I am incredibly fussy. The Angel Wings pendant was the only thing i liked.
Ooh am liking the Etsy site, already found things I could go for - thank you!

singingtree Mon 06-Oct-08 17:02:26

Ooh JackieNo, I've got one of those braclets - I got it in the Plumo sale. It was still expensive though, £50-ish, but I love it. It's the multi tubes one but on taupe cord not black

cremolafoam Mon 06-Oct-08 17:02:38

has some great stuff
i often have my nose pressed aginst this window

Nbg Mon 06-Oct-08 17:02:42

Oooh have you got any pictures howling?

I am a self confessed Jewellery whore grin

Nbg Mon 06-Oct-08 17:06:15

Do you know, those multi strand cord bracelets, it would be so easy to make and you could buy your own charms for them.

I might do that actually.

dizzywitches Mon 06-Oct-08 17:15:16

sorry, thomas sabo stuff here

Lauriefairycake Mon 06-Oct-08 17:23:43

Apart from they're big liars the sellers in the Thomas sabo shop in Selfridges - i went in last month and fell in love with an amethyst ring. Tried to buy it but they didn't have my size. I was glad cos when i went home and looked it up on the net it was only amethyst coloured crystal. And I'd specifically asked in the shop if it was amethyst.

JackieNo Mon 06-Oct-08 17:27:49

singingtree - I'm very envy. I think I want a necklace, but no chance, really.

Nbg - if you decide to try making some, I'd love to see them.

I love Georg Jensen stuff too, RubyRioja.

RubyRioja, I only have the one Georg Jensen thing - the Magic ring.

Nbg Mon 06-Oct-08 17:35:23

JN, definately!
I'm just looking at some cord now grin

I've got some clasps and things like that already.

I can't quite figure out why those bracelets cost so much.
Leather cord is so cheap and silver charms aren't expensive either.

JackieNo Mon 06-Oct-08 17:36:48

It's not even leather cord, nbg - cotton, apparently.

HowlingattheFullMOONMother Mon 06-Oct-08 17:40:34

Nbg they're expensive cos they're designer daaaarllling wink

Being in the business and knowing how much these designs cost to make shock me.They're putting a HUGE mark up on them.

I do have a website, I've got a bit on it ,and loads to put on.I'm trying to make as much as I can at the moment so I've plenty to put on in time for Xmas.

It's quite time consuming putting it all on the website so I tend to put a bulk lots on at one time.
