EXCEPT ON A QUEEN
I can wear whatever I jolly well like!
You may remember last week Queen Michelle showed you the wonderful work of Summer Sleight (best name ever) Summer got in touch with us about 6 weeks ago and asked if she could make us a necklace. Of course we both jumped at the chance and promised her that we would style them up when they arrived. I chose the STACKS choker in green because I knew right away it would go perfectly with my bright red coat.
Summer is a jeweler based in Denver, Colorado. Her background is in classical metalsmithing but she is currently working with two lines that play more with craft materials: Stitches which are handwoven glass beaded pieces and Stacks which are all hand cut wool blend felt pieces. As a maker it is important to her to produce high quality jewelry that focuses on the primacy of handmade.
Needless to say I didn't really think things through, so when Queen Michelle and I popped out to take some shots on Sunday, I had on a warm woollen coat on the hottest day of the year so far. It's a miracle my face isn't the same colour as my coat. But don't look at that, look at Summer's marvellous creations and like me be amazed at her talent and patience...
