Why not make your statement with a piece of handmade jewellery which has been solely woven, dyed and made by hand for you to wear, as uniquely precious as you are.
Did you know that my Strands collection has received lovely magazine coverage around the world, having been included in the likes of The Sunday Times Style, Easy Living, Company and Elle UK. Back when the collection launched, it was actually picked up by Trendhunter US.
My Strands handmade statement jewellery collection was formed following an urge for tactility. My need for practicality and dexterity came following the writing of my first book. After spending many months putting pen to paper, I revelled in the fact I could make handmade statement jewellery again rather than simply talk about it!
I was drawn towards the uncomplicated and a surge of making honestly with my hands, with no machinery and just the simplest of materials ensued. Reverting to techniques I’d been taught as a child, I began weaving and knotting in large scale . I was led to dying in bold colours and accessing textiles as a medium, which to date I’d never previously explored.
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.
