Just some of my favourite example texture samples from testing alongside the new colour palette! It’s exciting to work in a slightly different way and to see how different textures work and contrast with eachother.... #rachelbutlin #enamel #enameljewellery #samples #testing #surface #texture #unittwelve #unittwelvegallery #iloveunittwelve #wip #onthebench #designermaker #hothouse2017 #craftscouncil #talent #whatsnext #contemporarycraft #contemporaryjewels #contemporaryjewellery #contemporaryjewelry #lifeofajeweller #trysomethingnew

USEFUL / BEAUTIFUL Why Craft Matters 23rd March - 1st September @harewoodhouse “To craft something means to understand a material; how to use it effectively for a particular purpose. It means learning, practising and passing on knowledge of the mind, hand, heart. Craft is an approach, not an object. It can teach us crucial lessons for contemporary life: resourcefulness, respect, resilience, repair. “ Hugo Macdonald, Curator . . An impressive exhibition which provokes conversation around the importance of craft, equally for the maker, the consumer and wider society. Visit the exhibition and join in the conversation of #whycraftmatters . .

So LOTS has been happening over at Steel&Stitch and THIS is the first practise pic taken in a mini-pop-up-photo-booooth!! I KNOW! There is still quite a long way to go to be film ready to make y'all some lovely #crochethacking tutorials but it is DEFINITELY getting there. . . This is my current down time project, yes it is a copy of the hat worn by the agent lady in X Men First Class that I have lusted after since seeing it 100 years ago ๐Ÿ˜€. And yes, I DID say that I wasn't going to put anything 'new' into the world because there are plenty of Things in it already, but this is something I will wear until it rots, so that's ok ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒ . . . . #sustainablefashion #handmade #handmadeisbest #crochethacking  #mysustainablelife #lifewithoutplastic #modernmaker #fashrev #fashionrevolution #makedoandmend #makesmthng #craftscouncil #loveyourclothes  #doitfortheprocess #colourmehappy #iloveyarn #crochet #haulternative #plasticfree #sustainability #slowfashion #mindfulmending #notnew #abmcrafty #craftivism #slowfashion #mindfulmending #zerowaste #yarnpunk #lovedclotheslast

An exciting day in the studio yesterday! Sometimes it’s hard to start something new and the first results might not be perfect but I had so much fun! I can’t wait to see where these lovely samples lead to for a new collection! #rachelbutlin #enamel #enameljewellery #samples #testing #surface #texture #unittwelve #unittwelvegallery #iloveunittwelve #wip #onthebench #designermaker #hothouse2017 #craftscouncil #talent #whatsnext #contemporarycraft #contemporaryjewels #contemporaryjewellery #contemporaryjewelry #lifeofajeweller #trysomethingnew
I've had an amazing , full-on!, couple of days at Flourish @craftscouncil . So much advice and inspiration to take forward! . . . . #flourish19 #craftscouncil #crafts #goldsmithhall #artsandcrafts #makers
Day 2 of Flourish included a talk with Game of Thrones jewellers @yunus_and_eliza. It's been an inspirational couple of days of advice, discussions, and talks by the Crafts Council. Just as our brains were about to explode we were saved by #lesleyshepperson, who expertly brought everything together, facilitating us to reflect and crystallise our thoughts into actions. Thank you to Katia and Caroline and all at the @craftscouncil for all your hard work! . . #craftscouncil #flourish #flourish19 #craft #maker #makeropportunites #creative #vision #goals #thinkbig #planning #gameofthrones #got #gameofthronesjewellery #goldsmithshall @goldsmithshall

I mostly hand-build finding the process expressive and free, but from time to time I like to sit and throw something simple like a bowl or a little bud vase . . . . #modernpottery #ceramicart #pottery #ceramics #loveceramic #keramik #thesimpleeveryday #objectdesign #contemporaryceramics #propstylist #propstyling #simpleinterior #neutrals #wheelthrown #handthrown #craftsmanship #craftscouncil #holeandcorner #cremerging #londonmaker #ceramicartist #stoneware #budvase

I’ve spent the last few days finishing the carving for one of my commissioned stools. I’m hoping to bring it to New Designers too. I’m always surprised by how much leather I need to carve to make the stool - it seems to go on and on! Now I’ve just got to finish it, but I’m off to London for the second day of the Crafts Council’s Flourish conference today (couldn’t afford two days off work this week - not sure even one is a good idea with all I have to do....) @newdesigners #oneyearinthemaking @craftscouncil #flourish19 #designermaker #craftscouncil #contemporarycraft #nextsteps #professionaldevelopment #carvedleather #markmaking #linocuttools @intaglioprintmaker

Phew! Full-on first day at Flourish, so much to absorb, thank you @craftscouncil. Brilliant to catch up with friends and makers. You know who you are. X . . #craftscouncil #flourish19 #flourish #conference #makers #craft #hothouse  #hothousealumni
Check out the badge! It's #justacard Day so I thought I’d share. Behind me, on my kitchen shelves, are contemporary ceramics by amazing makers. They may be small pieces but they delight me every day and are all the more special as I know buying them supports fellow makers and galleries. I know you’ll want to join this not-for-profit campaign which encourages support for independent shops, galleries, artists & makers. Find out about the @justacard campaign here: justacard.org/our-aim #smallbusiness #justsupportsmall

When you deliver a workshop at a school and during an #evaluation section, a student quietly walks past and hands you this! #bestteacher Made my Friday and now my Monday morning as have popped it in my notebook! @craftscouncil #makeyourfuture #craftscouncil
YAY!! It’s @justacard Day!! For my new followers and all my lovely existing supporters my name is Rachel Butlin and I’m a contemporary jewellery living in Nottinghamshire. I work from my beautiful studio @unittwelve in the Staffordshire countryside which I share with five other amazing other independent makers! Supporting independents like me is so important. The ‘Just a Card’ message perfectly sums up what buying handmade and local means to me as a maker. Even the smallest sale mean SO SO much! (Does happy dance!) Your not buying JUST a card( or in my case a simple pair of earrings), you’re supporting a love, a passion, the possibility for me to continue to preserve traditional skills and create beautiful, new original pieces. If each person just supported one maker, artisan, gallery or shop, you are supporting an amazing community of originality and passion!!

Makers. Do you allow enough time for Creative Professional Development? I know I don’t, which is why I’m determined to make the most of my time at the @craftscouncil Flourish conference on Monday & Tuesday. It’s something I don’t really have the time for right now, but I know that by the end of Tuesday I’ll be thinking how on earth could I not have had time for this!  I’ve never regretted any CPD I’ve participated in. Looking forward to catching up with fellow makers who might be feeling the same (and those who aren’t!). To coin a phrase ‘we’re stronger together’. If you can’t make it to Flourish there are lots of opportunities for CPD from the #craftscouncil and other organisations such as @thedesigntrust so do follow them to make sure you’re looking after your practice as best you can. Oh, and do you like my badge?  As you were... . . . #makersofinstgram #makersofinsta #ukcraft #cpd #creativeprofessional #workshops #flourish19
Potluck stools and table by #flourish19 speaker @lola_lely who will be talking about how to identify your unique selling point.  Lola practices craft in fresh and unexpected ways by linking contemporary practices and technology with age-old techniques. Collaboration is a strong feature of her work. She has worked with an anthropologist, a storyteller, boot makers John Lobb, and the British Pop Artist, Allen Jones. Her work has been exhibited at @vamuseum, @royalacademyarts, @designmuseum and @artbasel in Switzerland.  Be inspired by Lola and many other talented speakers at #flourish19 - last few tickets available.

What are those Amanda? I hear you cry. These are my doming punches - I've had them since 1998 when I set up my workshop in Clerkenwell, London with the help of a grant from the Crafts Council and a loan from the Prince's Trust. Admittedly I could have looked after them a little better over the years, they are a little rusty now, they really ought to be bright and shiny but they still do what they're supposed to and probably will still be in 20 years time.โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € .โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € .โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € . โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #craftscouncil #princestrust #stillgoingstrong #toolsofthetrade #jewellerymaker #amorajoyas #handmadejewellery #madebyhand #silverjewellery #madenotmanufactured #shopsmall #itsallinthedetail #inspiredbyart #inspiredbynature #mycreativelife #madeinlincoln #madeinlincolnshire #silverjewelry

*SAMPLES SALE* I have so much work that is just shoved in boxes doing absolutely nothing so I thought having a ‘sample sale’ would make sense. They are finished pieces however are just sat collecting dust, I still have more I need to sort through but need to make way for some new projects now. If anyone is interested you can get to my shop via the link in my bio๐Ÿฅฐ

“The air is part of the mountain, which does not come to an end with its rock and its soil. It has its own air; and it is to the quality of its air that is due the endless diversity of its colourings. Brown for the most part in themselves, as soon as we see them clothed in air the hills become blue. Every shade of blue, from opalescent milky-white to indigo, is there. They are most opulently blue when rain is in the air. Then the gullies are violet. Gentian and delphinium hues, with fire in them, lurk in the folds.” โ€• Nan Shepherd, The Living Mountain. . . . I’ve recently been thinking of Nan Shepherd’s text, The Living Mountain, whilst working in the studio. From this time of solitary thought, three totems have been born from clay as red and wet as river-bank soil. Starting cold and lifeless, warmth is gently roused into their bodies with the repeated working of the hand. With time, it feels as though they breath with each push into the soft clay. To me, they are thousand year women protecting this month’s wild treasures in the smooth folds of their skin. Fingers crossed for the next stage of their journey in the kiln ๐Ÿคž . . . #modernhomes #pottery #moderndesign #wildflowers #wildbouquet #craftscouncil #contemporarycraft #terracotta #neutralstyle #rusticdecor #ceramics #makersmovement #cremerging #inspiredbynature #madeinscotland #scottishdesign #madeinglasgow #cairngorms #newmakers #craftgrads
This weekend, Thrift Design will be at the Festival of Making in King George’s Hall in Blackburn. As well as the fabulous Makers Market there are loads of other events and activities on in the town over the weekend so it makes a great day out for the family. The weather is set to continue to be wet which is great for ducks but if like me you like a bit sunshine come inside where it’s warm and dry and see me along with a great selection of independent artists and makers.#kinggeorgeshallblackburn  #ukhandmade #etsylancashire #blackburn #festivalofmaking #lancashire #craftfair #supporthandmadeuk #supporthandmade #smallbusinessuk #shoplocal #shoplocallancashire #craftmarketuk #craftscouncil @hopefulandglorious
