I've no doubt that she's going to end up having her jewellery worn on the red carpet and shown off in some of the biggest Haute Couture magazines in the world, but I'll be able to say that this was the first blog to show off her pieces. Hopefully I'll also be able to say that my sister makes all my jewellery, but I'm still working on this.
She's just posted photos of her most recent collection, which I've stolen for this blog along with some of her previous collections - don't sue me Andrea - and I think it is her most brilliant collection so far. I know I'm biased, but I'm sure you're all feel the same about her work too.
She used to always have a bit of an obsession with falling leaves in autumn - I do too - and would spend time when she was younger collecting different ones. We'd always create art with them, like leaf printing, so it's brilliant to see that she has continued this tradition and obsession, creating stunning pieces like the necklace above.
The weight of the necklace holds it in place, with the layered leaves framing your face. As with a lot of my sister's pieces, it's definitely one for someone who wants to make a statement and really wouldn't look out of place on a runway in Paris.
She even made a beautiful silver and bearl bracelet for me for my wedding day, which I wore as my something new. Sadly, I haven't been able to convince her to give me anything else, as she expects me to pay for things now, which I don't think is particularly fair. What's the point in having a sister who's a jewellery designer if you don't get freebies?
You should definitely give her Facebook page a follow - which you can do here - to see her work and the processes she goes through to create everything. If you like her jewellery, you can also contact her about her commissions. Here are some more of the beautiful pieces she has designed and made by hand over the years:
