For my latest collection Winter Wonderland, I wanted to take a more contemporary root for my Christmas Collection.
Last year I created the Shimmer and Sparkle Collection which was lots of beautiful but traditional Christmas feels. With lots of silver and gold colours.
This year I went with blues and pastel purples for my main colour pallet, along with silver and a little gold for accent colours.
I wanted this collection to feel very wintery and icy and snowy. To create these effects I used glitter and silver leaf and used marbling techniques. I also used a lot f the crackly techniques which create this interesting crackly effect created this lovely crackly ice effect and when covered in UV resin this really elevates the effect.
For a snowy effect, I used resin mixed with pearly paint. It has a stunning subtle shimmer which I really love and think makes for a lovely snowy effect.
Finally, for this collection, I used some gems to add a little glamour and a touch of dazzle to some of the pieces.
And of course, all the pieces are handmade and one of a kind.
Overall I really love this collection and I think it is the best yet.
This is me talking you through some of the pieces in the Winter Wonderland Collection
