BESTeam Feature - Blue Forest Jewellery

Blue Forest Jewellery is run by Alison, who is a jewelery addict! She has been making jewelery for as long as she can remember, mostly adapting pieces she had bought up until a few years ago when it got more serious. She makes things she would like to wear herself so it's often difficult to part with her creations.  

Her grandmother was a very creative lady, and she thinks her love of making things came from her. She has tried her hand at all sorts of crafts - making clothes, lace, applique, tapestry, cards etc, but jewelery is her current favorite.



The shop name, Blue Forest Jewellery, comes from the remains of the Forest of Arden in the middle of England where she loves to walk her dog. There are a variety of trees, many very ancient, including silver birches and firs. In the right sunlight, they reflect the lovely blues of the sky and in the spring the deep purply blue of the bluebell carpet.  Her aim is to string semi precious beads in stunning color combination to make statement pieces.


Here are some of my favorite pieces...there are so many to choose from you must check out her shop for yourself.

Pink Lucite flowers bag purse or mobile phone charm

Stunning gothic red glass bead and gray crystal earrings

Beyond bold acrylic multi color earrings
