My photo
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.

OOh, Etsy Voter!

Indulge me and allow me a minor swank, if you will.
My Urban Square cuff links were in the Etsy Voter for Grads, this week. Sadly, with my usual efficiency, I only found our when the lovely Clare of ClareBears told me!
I'm very proud to say, they did pretty well - many thanks everyone who voted -and were featured on the front page.
I love making cufflinks, and I like to think of them going off to weddings and graduations and interviews, adding confidence and a little hand-crafted English style to the wearer.

An Idyllic Prize

How Happy am I?
This week I received the most beautiful  original art print from Jo Bradford of GreenIslandStudios.  Jo is a talented art photographer and I've hankered after one of her prints for ages.
I was delighted when I won this evocative image of a Cornish harbour in a competition on her blog .
Cornwall is a very special place to me. Every year my family spend some time on the beautiful Cornish coast, pottering about in the harbours, exploring coves and hoping the sun will keep shining. By the way,  necesseties for an English summer holiday are swimsuit, sweater and wellies, usually all worn at once!
Jo gets to live in this magical part of the UK all year round. She says of her work "My photographs are often described as having a dreamy, painterly quality"  and they do.  Have a look at her Etsy shop and wallow in her beautiful, nostalgic artwork.
