Christmas Wishes to one and all! #IcedGems

Hello everyone!

Christmas is nearly upon us and I’ve slipped off the reindeer the past few weeks and not posted for a bit….

It’s that time of year… I’ve been busy working in the day job and frantically got work finished for Christmas commissions, exhibitions and an event called #IcedGems.

Last month I teamed with two other small business, Yvonne of Kake and Cupkakery – maker and baker of delicious cupcakes & celebration cakes & Rickie of BeautyFaves – sales representative of beauty products from Avon

We joined forces to present our wares in a lovely new coffee shop called Coffee Lounge on Newhall street, Birmingham, situated near the city centre and on route to entering the Jewellery Quarter.

Yvonne showcased her Christmas Collections, Cake flavours, and stunningly decorated cakes that taste as good as they look. MMMMmm Mmmmm. And Rickie had so many goodies on display I had to restrain myself from buying lots of party eyeshadows, nail varnishes etc, etc for my other past time of salsa dancing…..!

Here and meanwhile I presented my new jewellery ranges – ‘Betty Said’ and the aptly named ‘IcedGems.’

It was a great day and great start to the festive season with lots of lovely people and enjoying coffee along the way…..

To give you a taster of what was on display, here is an image from the ‘Betty Said’ range.

‘Betty Said’ Drop Earrings – Gold & Smokey Quartz by Kathryn Partington

This collection is developed from some pieces I made exclusively for Milly Winter – singer songwriter. These pieces starred in her fabulous music video ‘Betty Said.’ Watch it here. Set in the 1930’s, it’s full of glamour, which is what I hope to convey within the pieces.

These are perfect for the festive season, classic and timeless, to help dress up any little black dress and for all those Christmas parties and celebrations… They also come in silver too! Here’s a sneak preview of a silver piece!

‘Betty Said’ – Silver Collar by Kathryn Partington

‘IcedGems’ is a collection of jewellery featuring bold, striking colours using vitreous enamel and silver, perfect to add a splash of colour and compliment a wardrobe of brights or brighten up another little black dress…

The coloured surface of the enamel has a tonal, relief of decoration with subtle contrast which catches the light beautifully.

What do you think?

These collections will officially be launched in the new year and available to buy on my online shop too.  Items are designed & created by myself in my studio in the heart of the jewellery quarter.  Collections include necklaces, pendants, bracelets rings, earrings, studs and droppers…..

So watch this space….. and in the meantime I wish you a Wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
