AUGUST INSPIRATION August 01 2018
This month we're exploring and finding inspiration for upcoming collections from vintage flower prints, abstract illustrations and unique gemstones.
We can't share too much here yet, but having long wanted to have a birthstone option I'm excited to be finally adding this very soon in the form of dainty and unique bracelets.
If you want to be first to know about the new collections, sign up to the newsletter here.

ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES July 19 2018
Our best-selling Initial This necklaces have had an update! Now with slightly larger disc pendants, there's room for up 3 initials or symbols + you can add an extra 1 or 2 discs for endless personalisation options...
You can even mix and match a botanical pendant with an initial and zodiac pendant - simply enter your request in the 'note' area at checkout.
Available in rose gold fill, sterling silver and yellow gold fill, in 2 sizes - mini and midi.
MAGICAL MALACHITE May 10 2018
Malachite is a recent gemstone discovery of mine. This elegant opaque stone has a beautiful deep green colour, with unusual line markings that make it a very unique and exciting material to work with.
The markings mean that no piece of jewellery will be exactly the same and I've loved pairing it with gold to create these pieces.
Not only is it a beautiful stone to look at, it is also thought to have healing and transformative properties.
APRIL INSPIRATION April 05 2018
It's been a long winter and I'm excited for bright spring days, budding leaves on the trees and blooming flowers.
While I've been waiting for brighter days, I've found lots of colourful inspiration on Pinterest. I'm currently loving vibrant natural tones, magnolia flowers and greenery (did I mention it's been a long winter?!) and wondering if I can bring these colours into some new designs... watch this space.

BOTANICAL COLLECTION March 09 2018
The recently launched Botanical Collection might just be my favourite yet. I'm lucky to live a short walk from Dublin's Phoenix Park and this large city park has become somewhat of a garden for my family and I.
The natural beauty within the park is a constant source of inspiration for me and the jewellery I create, and my aim with the Botanical collection was to capture this in the necklaces that make up the collection.
Each season brings with it a changed landscape in the park and the different pieces represent this: the Evergreen necklace represents the green that is always present somewhere in the park; the Dandelion necklace represents the wild beauty in summer; the Rose necklace represents the People's Garden, which blooms from spring to summer, and the personalised Botanical necklace featuring a branch full of leaves, representing spring and autumn.
These subtle botanical pieces, inspired by my love of nature, have a timeless quality and are made from durable 14k gold fill and each necklace features a disc that is individually stamped.
I hope you love it as much as I do.
FEBRUARY INSPIRATION February 05 2018
I'm hard at work on some exciting new pieces, which will be launching later this month. Drawing inspiration from nature and a deep green and pale pink colour palette, amongst the new jewellery will be a range of botanical necklaces and gemstone earrings that I can't wait to share with you...

JANUARY CHALLENGE January 09 2018
I love the start of a new year and the planning and fresh ideas that come with it. I'm excited to be starting the second week of January with a challenge: to create a new piece of jewellery each working day for the rest of the month.
Running all parts of a small business can sometimes mean spending a lot of time on the business side of things and not nearly enough time on the design and creative side. The idea behind this challenge is to get the creative juices flowing and work on some ideas that have been in my head and design notebook for a while.
Some of these pieces will become part of a new collection, but some are simply for fun!
You can follow the challenge on Instagram, where I will be posting a photo of each new piece.
WRAPPED UP December 05 2017
Once the last of the Christmas orders are sent and I hang up my pliers for a little break (and the present buying is all done!) one of my favourite things to do is to find unique and special ways to wrap my Christmas presents.
This year I'm on the hunt for gorgeous patterned wrapping paper in non-traditional Christmas colours (inky blues and the like) and luxurious velvet ribbon in a contrasting colour, paired with some green foliage as a simple seasonal embellishment.
Pinterest has as always provided lots of inspiration and I've rounded up some of my current favourites here:

NEW COLLECTION - JUST LANDED October 12 2017
I'm excited to launch the latest jewellery collection. The new range features minimal and wearable pieces, with the signature delicate A Box For My Treasure aesthetic.
Circles feature strongly in earrings, bracelets and necklaces - linked together, layered over each other and on their own - symbolising unity, connection and eternity.
Each piece is made from robust 14k gold fill - a material I fall more in love with the more I work with it. Gold fill is tarnish resistant, can be worn in water and is made to last.
Modern, minimal, wearable and of course ideal for layering. Explore it here.
I hope you like the collection as much as I do.
JULY INSPIRATION July 27 2017
Here in the A Box For My Treasure studio I'm hard at work researching for new pieces coming next season.
Part of this includes working on colour combinations for gemstones and metals - Pinterest is always a wonderful resource for this. I'm currently loving natural and muted sandy and peachy tones, combined with intense greens and mustards. Watch this space...

A NEW LOOK June 21 2017
This month A Box For My Treasure launched a new look logo, along with updated chic packaging for all the little treasures.
The logo has been updated and refreshed with a minimal look to reflect the delicate and timeless nature of the jewellery. The packaging is sleeker and chicer with gold embossed boxes and velvet lining, which still adheres to our aim of being an environmentally conscious business with each box made from recycled material.
Researching new packaging is always a fun project for a stationery and packaging geek like myself and I hope you love the new boxes as much as I do!
REFRESH AND RENEW May 12 2017
A change is coming... This month will see some exciting changes at A Box For My Treasure, with the launch of a new logo and chic new packaging - along with a range of jewellery to delight.
These changes mean that it's time to bid farewell to some old favourites, in order to make way for the new. There is some limited stock available in the Spring Sale, which will be ending very soon - so grab a bargain while you still can, as the sale pieces will no longer be available when the sale finishes.

APRIL INSPIRATION April 11 2017
Spring has sprung and with it comes the first buds on the trees, along with delicate cherry blossoms and magnolia.
Entering a new season can mean embracing change and here at A Box For My Treasure we're doing exactly that, by adding new colours to some of the most popular pieces (gemstone choker necklaces - coming soon!)) and bidding a fond farewell to old favourites (nameplate necklaces and bracelets).
Here's to a new season of renewal and change.

NEW COLLECTION PREVIEW October 28 2016
Next month will see the launch of a new jewellery collection from A Box For My Treasure. After taking a break over the summer months for some important business (hello, baby George!), I've returned to work feeling inspired and bursting with ideas, which I've been busily channeling into the new range.
Previews of some of the pieces have been shared on Instagram over the last few weeks and here's one final preview, which I'm so excited about. The new pieces are minimal, modern, elegant and glamorous, while retaining the signature delicate aesthetic of A Box For My Treasure.
I hope you love the new collection as much as I do!
To hear about it first, sign up for updates here.
STAY GOLD October 07 2016
Custom orders are always a delight to work on and this one was especially so - personalised large gold bar necklaces for one of my oldest friends to gift her bridesmaids on her wedding day.
The necklaces feature a hand-stamped personal message with a nod to The Outsiders and the poet Robert Frost.
From celebrating friendship or a wedding, the birth of a baby, to tokens of love - every custom piece puts a smile on my face and I feel rather honoured to think that a piece of jewellery that I made plays a part in a happy moment.
