This is one of the first ever pieces of jewellery I made, a double set sea glass open bangle. My partners Mum treated herself to this treasure as soon as it was off the bench and wears it all the time. As it was from the early days and living at Sara's, it still hadn't been hallmarked. So when I sent the latest batch off to Sheffield Assay Office to be marked, I included Sara's bracelet in with the rest. It was so nice to see it returned with my makers mark and all the official hallmarks next to one another, an original piece that's finally got my stamp on it. I've given it a little bit of a shape for Sara and given it a fresh polish creating a matte effect which looks lovely against the sea glass. It's interesting to see how my ideas have grown since this first bangle but it's also reminded me that sometimes the most simple of designs can be the most beautiful too. P.s please excuse my ragged fingers, a jewellers hands are never going to look good! #smugglerstreasures #jewellery #jewelry #seaglass #seaglassjewelry #bangles #bracelet #cuffbracelet #yorkshire #whitby #hallmark #sheffield #northyorkshire #womensfashion #womensjewelry #silversmith #silverjewelry #seagypsy #progression #contemporaryjewellery #sterlingsilver #makersmark #beachcomber #beachglass #surferstyle #gypsysoul #beachfind #video #instadaily #makersgonnamake

Day 19 of #marchmeetthemaker. My partner Sam (busy painting our new place today) is my helper, support and encouragement. He lugs things about for events, helps set up, doesn't go mad when the car has a constant layer of sand and is full of random bits of driftwood, stones and sea glass. And he's always there when I need advice. Cheers pal. #smugglerstreasures #meetthemaker #makersmovement #helper #jewelrymaking #jewelrydesigner #etsy #etsyuk #silverjewellery #jewellery #smallbusiness #support

Spent a great deal of today sorting through bags from the storage unit. And then a good wedge of it untangling this #recycled #sarisilk it's nice to see organised shelves and splashes of #beautiful #colour in my little studio. This place is a creative haven. #smugglerstreasures #smugglerstreasuresjewellery #studio #crafting #silk #handmade #upcycle #shelves #silversmith #jewelery #jewelry #jewellery #blue #cobalt #purple #green #turquoise

What better way to start a busy day at the studio than with a great big bowl of porridge topped with banana and cinnamon. Tasty stuff @cranberry.swamp 😋#smugglerstreasures #breakfast #goodfood #whitby #northyorkshire #yorkshire #yorkshirecoast #glutenfree #porridge #healthy #glutenfreecafe #mostimportantmealoftheday #studiolife

#Seasicksteve is keeping me company in the studio today...not in person but his records certainly are.

All hail the bejewelled hands of @ceri_oakes on her wedding day. I don't know whether it's because I knew she was wearing it or not, but I swear I caught glimpses of the blue Apatite stone all day. It almost glowed against her bronzed skin. The most beautiful and fitting 'something blue' for this boho bride. And there's a little glimpse of her custom made wedding band too, a delicate white gold ring with hammered texture sitting lovingly against her engagement ring. Thanks again for trusting in me to make these 😘💗 #smugglerstreasures #jewellery #weddingjewelry #weddingjewellery #weddingring #bespokewedding #gemstones #apatite #kernowcraft #wavering #etsy #etsyshop #whitby #northyorkshire #yorkshire #handmadewithlove #handmadejewellery #silverring #whitegold #weddingband #somethingblue #bridaljewelry #instadaily #jewelrygram #jewellerydesign #surfergirl #bohowedding #bohobride #jewelry

Something new on the bench, ready for @staithesfestival. A dreamy oval kyanite stone is set as the focal point and there's oxidised stamp detail to outer edges, the band and leaf print to the underside. Proper pics will follow but I was so eager after setting the stone that I just had to get a quick snap! #smugglerstreasures #ring #gemstonejewelry #gemstones #kyanite #stampedjewelry #sterlingsilver #silverring #silverjewelry #jewelry #jewellery #bohemian #hippiestyle #gypsysoul #seagypsy #surfergirl #surferstyle #bohostyle #jewelryaddict #whitby #northyorkshire #yorkshire #etsy #etsyshop #handmadewithlove #instadaily #newcollection #womensfashion

I'm eager to finish these amazing earrings for @bridget_wilkinson_art, Bridget took inspiration from my 'Festival Fever' earrings and came up with these beauties. We've tweaked in places and sifted through sea glass to find the perfect pieces to set in silver.

This simple silver bangle with copper bobble was a commission for @ceri_oakes & @parko1981. They gave it to the lovely Dani as a thank you gift for all her hard work painting the woodland signs for their wedding and for performing a reading during the ceremony. Such a special day 🌿🎨✨#smugglerstreasures #jewelry #jewellery #silverbangle #contemporaryjewellery #simplejewelry #elegant #weddingjewellery #weddinggift #thankyougift #woodlandwedding #yorkshire #yorkshirewedding #northyorkshire #whitby #etsy#etsyshop #artisan #mixedmetal #giftforher #bohowedding #handmadewithlove #thankyou #wedding #bracelet #silverjewelry #bangle #womensfashion

When you're your own walking advert! I was drenched in Smugglers Treasures jewellery the other day. There's a few rings I wear daily along with my summer stacker bangles, but when I was rustling through my jewellery box I spotted these earrings. I made them ages ago so I thought it was time they had a little jaunt out, after all the blue beads look rather lovely with my sea glass ring ✨🌊#smugglerstreasures #jewelry #jewellery #jewelryaddict #jewelrygram #seaglass #seaglassring #seaglassjewelry #seaglassjewellery #etsy #etsyshop #whitby #northyorkshire #yorkshire #beachcomber #silverjewellery #silverjewelry #gypsysoul #walkingadvertisement #surferstyle #bohemianstyle #handmadewithlove #handmadejewellery #artisan #earrings #rings

"Smugglers trip" in Strömstad Sweden is well worth a try. We took the boat from the harbor and out to the point that is furthest to the West and looked at the two lighthouses on Ursholmen. The food was excellent and it is alway funny to see seals. Along the trip Ulf from the museum is telling the history about the smugglers from 1920 that sailed the waters around Strömstad. So worth a try. #visitsweden #visitströmstad #visitstromstad #visitstrømstad #tourism #globetrotter #ursholmen #strömstad #stromstad #strømstad #säl #seal #instafood #smugglers #smugglerstreasures #smugglerstrip #smuggeltur #celincharter #kustevent #strömstadmuseum #west #farthesttothewest #westpoint

This chunky men's ring made for @alexander_p82 is off to be hallmarked. The hammered texture with dark oxidisation gives it a rustic feel and the small piece of local sea glass is a nostalgic nod to the place he's grown up in. #smugglerstreasures #jewelry #jewellery #mensring #mensjewelry #seaglassring #seaglassjewelry #seaglassjewellery #seaglass #giftforhim #etsy #etsyseller #etsyjewelry #hammeredsilver #oxidisedsilver #surferstyle #beachglass #whitby #yorkshire #northyorkshire #shoplocal #silverring #chunkyring #mensfashion #etsymade #rusticjewelry #artisan #unisex
