Little Spoon

Hi, I'm Lizzie, I am lucky enough to combine my love for silversmithing with my magpie skills for seeking sparkling treasures. Old silverware, coins and spoons may not sparkle when I find them, they are often dull and dented. I adore being able to turn something that may otherwise be forgotten or discarded into an item to be loved once again.

 

I aim to make my jewellery as ethically as possible, using repurposed antique sterling silver. Where silver is purchased, I buy only authenticated recycled eco silver. In a world of fast fashion and throw away culture I make solid items of jewellery to last. I love that each item I use has untold stories and secrets. Each spoon that has been repurposed into a ring may have stirred countless cups of tea or listened in on many coffee mornings.

Victoria is the artist behind Since Day Dot. Inspired by psychedelia, 60s illustration and Art Nouveau style, Victoria breathes new life into beautiful vintage and pre-loved handbags and leather accessories by customising them with unique hand-painted designs.

Blue Artemis

Blue Artemis is the creation of Mark Cranfield, a Somerset multi-disciplinary artist exploring surface pattern design through the medium of fine bone china.

 

His work is inspired by bold graphic imagery featuring flora, fauna & traditional chintz pattern. These merge with his own idiosyncratic artwork & digital compositions.  Each piece is created individually by hand, thus giving it a unique character.
