As you can see from the title of the post, this week I have the pleasure of featuring a jewelry artisan from across the pond. Blue Forest Jewellery is a business owned and operated by Alison from Coventry, UK. She's been working with jewelry - from repurposing and adapting pieces to making her own - for about as long as she can remember. You may have already guessed this based on her business name, but Alison finds inspiration for her work in color and nature. Semi-precious stones, earth tones, and bright splashes of natural color are prominently featured in the jewelry she creates. The name "Blue Forest" comes from the bluebells and beautiful sky she sees in the Forest of Arden where she regularly walks her dog and spends time in nature.
Much like me, Alison only makes jewelery she'd wear herself. With that in mind, I decided to browse through her shop with the intention of picking out a few pieces that I would buy for myself. Check them out below:
