I’m very excited to announce that my range of jewellery will soon be available to buy from a local gallery. I’ve been trying my hand at a new twist on jewellery – using materials, tools and techniques usually reserved for musical instrument making.
Luthier Made Jewellery or LMJ for short is a new range of jewellery made from beautiful hardwood and tonewood such as Ebony, Rosewood, Walnut, Purpleheart, Spruce, Mahogany, Bog-Oak and Cedar – left over from Ukulele building.
The full range of brooches, pendants, earrings, necklaces and cuff-links will be available alongside some of Brighton’s most exciting and cutting edge artists and creators, seven days a week in Studio 45 at the entrance to the Open Market on London Road, Brighton.
I guess you could call it up-cycling but with such incredibly fine materials to start with there isn’t much higher you can get (without artificial additives). This is just a selection from the range, which will continue to develop as one of pieces, using materials left over from ukulele making.
The perfect gift for players of Guitar, Ukulele, Mandolin, Banjo or any other fretted instrument.
