Su Trindle is a British designer and maker of sculptural modern silver and resin jewellery. My favourite place to be is my small workshop in my garden. I work alone, singing along to the radio striving to create beautiful well-designed, contemporary jewellery and make a living at it. This last is important, not just to my creativity and ego but to help feed by boys and the dog.

Alphabet Rings - There's more

It's no good, I just can't choose a favourite with these.
I like the ergonomic, curling "J" and the simplicity of the "M" and "Q", but I also love the funky "L" and the impractical but playful "P".
Taking a closer look at the shapes of letters has been great fun and could easily become an obsession. In fact, I'm starting to fret about finishing them.
I may have to start all over again.

Alphabet Rings

I started this series of rings as part of the Ring a Day project, though the original impulse came from my college project - on letter and script.
My idea was to take simple letter outlines and make them into wearable, interesting, rings.  I've designed them using capital letters and used square silver wire for a clean line and modern paired down look.
The results so far are pictured here. At the moment I'm making them to order, so if you fancy your initial or want to spell out rude words on your fingers, just get in touch!

RAD 64 Ultramarine

My new blue is a rich and spring-ful ultramarine. When I was mixing the colour I was thinking of cobalt, but that is a lighter hue, I think. This is on the blue-violet side of things and I wish I had eyes this colour.
