Hello Winter (almost)

2012 Snowflake Lockets

It's very nearly December (can you believe?!) which for me heralds the start of Winter. Cue cozy nights by the fire, big knits and crisp mornings, ahh!

I have been making a brand new limited edition batch of wintery snowflake lockets for 2012, a wearable slice of the winter for you that is becoming a bit of a Bonbi tradition! This years snowflakes have a scattering of ice hued Swarovski crystals, glass pearls and raw brass leaves and leaping deer. Have a look in the shop HERE! First Frost Locket Snowfall Locket

Over the Mountain...

There is more newness in the shop, new lockets no less!

New lockets!

They have been a bit of a long time coming, ideas came and went and I finally settled on some that I love...The first is a little soaring bird amongst the stars with a pair of feathers on the chain. I love drawing birds, all the patterns in their wings and their universal appeal make them a wonderful subject matter.


The second features a snow capped mountain range with little pine trees and (another) bird charm on the chain as if in flight over the mountain. I called this one Always Over the Mountain. It is inspired by the Iron and Wine track Upward Over the Mountain which is a beautiful song that sound tracked a 4 week American road trip Mark and I took back in 2004 through California, Arizona, New Mexico & Nevada...It also makes me think of my mother in law and her two sons. Have a listen:
