Now that summer is here and the Sun has got his hat on, it’s time to create stunning summer outfits! There is a variety of unique summer silver jewellery available from Seek & Adore that you can use to accessorise and turn head this summer.

Ideas for Summer jewellery From Seek & Adore

We have a brilliant collection of handmade jewellery by unique and talented artists for you to wear and enjoy this summer.

Rebecca Ilett gets her inspiration from films and books. She tells a story with her jewellery. She uses a variety of different tools and materials to create some fabulous pieces. One piece she has produced for summer is a silver bubble ring. This ring has a rustic, textured body; it is manufactured with melted silver and has a quartz stone set in gold at the top of the ring with nine caret gold nuggets. This ring was made through forging to create a textured and irregular surface. The gold nuggets are added during the melting process. This ring would look perfect with any outfit, day or night.


Silver ‘Bubble’ Ring, £120 by Rebecca Illet

Another designer who has crafted some amazing looking pieces for summer is Barbara Yarde. She creates classically inspired pieces and has a love of detail. A piece she has designed for our summer collection is a pair of tiny abstract studs. These are sterling silver. The studs are made by first being carved in wax and then cast in sterling silver. These are delicate, pretty earrings that are ideal for special occasions.


Tiny Abstract Studs, £55 by Barbara Yarde

Frances Julie Whitelaw’s favourite medium is silver and she has designed some fantastic pieces for summer with it. One such piece is a silver cage pendent. This is a sterling silver pendent cage with a large pearl bead trapped in the centre. The silver cage hangs from a bobble chain and is detailed with granulated beads. The pendent is made from silver wire and features beaded granulations soldered onto the surface.


Silver Cage Pendant, £200 by Frances Julie Whitelaw

Another stunning piece of silver handmade jewellery is the crossover leaf ring, designed by Antonia Ross. Antonia gets her inspiration from the world around her. Her jewellery incorporates castings from natural objects to create sculptural jewellery pieces. The crossover leaf ring is made of two small, detailed blackberry leaves that form the top of the ring and by their stems which wrap around the finger to form the ring. The ring is made of sterling silver which is rhodium plated to prevent the silver from tarnishing. The blackberry leaves are real and were captured using metal clay. The leaf model was then cast in sterling silver to make the stems. The ring can be worn at any time not just on special occasions.

Barbara Yarde produces classic pieces made from a range of materials, with silver featuring most prominently. One of the pieces made by this fantastic designer is a delicate dimple bracelet.

Delicate Dimple Bracelet, £120 by Barbara Yarde

Another fabulous designer that we love at Seek & Adore is Eve Claire Taylor. She designs silver tableware and gold, silver jewellery. Two of her beautiful pieces are a pair of vivid turquoise twin-leaf earrings. These are made in a long process that begins with her piercing the earrings out of a silver sheet and then folding the leaf in half. The folded leaf is flattened using a forge and then reopened. The ear wire is cut and then joined with the leaves using a soldering block and heat.  Following this, the enamel is fused in a kiln to silver.

The second of Eve Claire Taylor’s pieces is a pair of spring leaf earrings. The leaves are made of silver and then enamelled with peridot green. These earrings would look fabulous with a black wrap dress and a peridot green necklace to really make the jewellery shine.  Both these pairs of earrings come in a black velvet earring box.


Spring Leaf Earrings – Peridot Green, £38 by Eve Claire Taylor

Sarah McCallum is another designer at Seek & Adore, who looks to the natural world for her inspiration. One of her amazing pieces is a double wave ring. This is a different style to most other rings out there; featuring two sterling silver rings nestled together. The upper ring is inspired by the foam of breaking waves which is echoed in this and has a brushed finish. The lower ring reflects the glossiness of the waves and has a polished finish, offering up a stunning contrast.
