In the Past I have done many things.
For the past 12 years I have had my own business as a jewellery designer. I have done some weird and wonderful things over the years. Exhibited at London Fashion Week and in New York, travelled around the Mediterranean and Caribbean on cruise ships selling my jewellery, appearing and selling on TV, and now I can also tell you about my foray into the Film Industry and making jewellery for films – King Arthur- Legend of the Sword. (It has to be very secret until the film is released)
Those of you who know me personally know that my husband and I have interesting jobs. He makes props and special effects for the film industry, and I am clearly a jeweller. (So we’re quite boring at dinner parties as everyone always asks about our work!) We met at Art College 15 years ago and haven’t looked back since!
Making Jewellery for Films – King Arthur
So a couple of years ago, just after I had finished my maternity leave, my husband knew they needed help in the making jewellery for films, in the jewellery department of King Arthur – Legend of the Sword, and wondered if I could help. So I jumped at the chance. I had a couple of weeks helping out in the jewellery department.
I got to research the style of jewellery they were using, and then help create unique pieces. I did make a hairpiece for Guinevere but sadly she got written out! But I also made lots of brooches for the knights and barons.
Here are a few examples of the pieces I made.
