HELEN BUTLER DESIGNS
THE NITTY GRITTY
Type of Jewellery: Simple, affordable, hand made, created with nature as an inspiration
Materials: Silver, semi-precious stones and silk
Origin of Materials: The materials are sourced from UK suppliers
Method of Production: All designs are created by me, sometimes sketched, sometimes created from memory, everything is made by hand at home in my studio by the sea
Bespoke: You can ask for different colour birth stones, with matching silks which are perfect for bridemaids to keep forever. I can also also do personalized initial charms on hearts, stars, or discs
Style, Who for: Interestingly enough my jewellery is collected by 20 year old surf chicks right through to my mothers friends!
Five favorite things: Beach walks in the sun, travelling to new places, family and friends get togethers. A good book on a long trip, tasting new food and seeing new cultures, and spotting people wearing my jewellery who I dont know!
"The beach is my canvas, nature my inspiration"
The subtle details of the landscape still inspires my work, the smallest details, the markings of a shell, the smells and sounds of the beach and the sea fill me with continued creativity, echoing the simplicity of nature at its best.
So each shell stands out from the rest, cast into precious metal, giving weight and value to each piece and incorporating the subtle greys and greens from the unique rock formations between Torcross and Beesands beach, where I live. The 'wings' collection incorporating birds and feathers I have sketched and cut from sheet silver.
Different colour birth stones with matching silks
My designs are simple and timeless and affordable for bridesmaids presents, both the necklaces and bracelets can be on different colour silks so that your bridesmaids or Mothers feel special.
The simplicity of my designs, I believe, can be worn by all ages because the root of the inspiration is so simple - from my teenage daughters to my ever elegant mother - and all of us in-between!
My pebble shaped logo and hand written signature captures the essence of my work as the journey continues. Enjoy!
