Take a look at my selection of handmade accessories made as part of my #ProjectWabiSabi. A year long jewellery making project to celebrate 10 years in business. The aim to create one new piece of jewellery every month for the whole year made from a different material.
My handmade accessories are British made and sourced wherever possible. Choose knowing that you’re supporting a small and authentic brand, doing a happy dance with every piece, made just for you!
If you’d like to know a little more about the concept behind our project, check out the blog posts I wrote to accompany my making HERE.
As a small business set up during a recession, it felt like quite the feat to make it to the grand old age of ten. I wanted to undertake a project that would mark the occasion. It was also an opportunity to get creative and challenge myself, promising myself more time to sit alone at my bench. Working with new materials and interviewing other designers along the way brought more revitalisation to my business than I ever imagined and it was a great success!
Like many of us, in the hectic whirlwind of modern life, I often seek ways to find a certain sense of ‘hygge’ in my everyday and my jewellery collections often reveal themselves to be a reflection of this. This intriguing Danish word (pronounced hue-gah) sits at the very core of Saloukee’s being – explained a feeling or mood that comes taking genuine pleasure in making ordinary, everyday things more meaningful, beautiful or special. This sense is something I hope I am able to impart on my wearers.
