I recently took part in a huge arts fair in Karlsrhue, Germany, located on the doorstep to the home of the Brothers Grimm, it felt like my soul had come home, I was in my element! I took so much inspiration for my future designs from the local artists and the stunning location of the beautiful Black Forest. I’m itching to go back one day to fully experience the city, surrounding countryside and the people.

So have you got a favourite fairy tale? Perhaps you would like it turned into a beautiful handmade piece of jewellery it would be a perfect present for yourself or somebody you love. If you get in touch let me be your fairy godmother and make your jewellery dreams come true!

Did you hear that marriage proposals have gone up by 30% in 2012? It seems that happily ever after is back in style. So boys you have fallen in love and now you’re tying the knot. What better way to tell her how much you love her and to show her how truly cherished she is than with a beautiful handmade engagement ring?

And girls, he’s popped the question, give him a break, show how much you love him by pointing him in the right direction of my Briar Rose collection!

What better way to start your lives together by capturing your personalities and style, and ensuring that your engagement ring is completely unique, designed and hand made to your specifications and budget! Best of all, the rings within the Briar Rose collection can also be made using 18ct yellow or white Fairtrade and Fairmined gold!

I’m also thrilled to have recently been “spotted” by a trade buyer from Historic Scotland. You can now buy Rachel Helen Designs within Stirling Castle, Duff House in Banff and Edinburgh Castle’s brand new gift shop! The collection features beautiful cameos mixed with vintage materials to create bracelets, pendants and brooches. And they are selling like hot cakes! I had inkling that they would be popular as vintage cameos are very on trend at the moment; especially since style gurus Sienna Miller and Kate Middleton were seen wearing them. But seriously I’m working my fingers to the bone here trying to keep up with the orders. So don’t be left out, while there is still skin on the bone I can make more. Visit my Juniper Tree collection and reserve yours now!

And remember if you can’t see something for you today simply get in touch and I’ll make something specially.
