Fabulous Jewellery from Heather O’Connor

Heather is another great designer I have discovered .

Her jewellery and silversmith work is both stylish and superbly crafted.

She often combines silver with contrasting structural materials such as wood or concrete to give her work a unique modern twist.

In particular I love the silver and concrete cufflinks, the contrast of textures and colours and the graphic form balance each other perfectly.

Even with her all silver pieces such as the pillow necklace the texturing of the silver adds contrast to the simple graphic shape of the pendant.

Heather has her own studios in South West London but often exhibits at shows such as Origin.

To view more of her work or to see where she will be next exhibiting you can visit her website www.heatheroconnor.com

initial ideas and sketches

We have been working on some ideas for the house and here are some sketches which should give you an idea of the look we are aiming for. Some more work and refinement is needed before we have a final design but we are progressing and will have more news soon.

The first two pictures below show how we want to change the front and rear elevations. The property is currently white render with some brick detail at the front however we want to have a smoother render and add some wood effect cladding to break up the expanse of white and enhance the asymmetric design.

The ground floor will be modified as we want to open up the rear with bi-fold doors and change the kitchen layout. Also as we want to do a loft conversion and therefore one of the bedrooms will be sacrificed for the staircase. Upstairs we plan to add 2/3 bedrooms and 1/2 bathrooms.
