Spring came early to our part of France this year, with warm sunny days from February onwards. It’s a real contrast to last year, which was cold and wet. We had snow in April, and a vicious hailstorm in May which shredded the young leaves on many of our plants.
We’re obviously not out of the woods yet in terms of bad weather, but I think it’s fair to say that we’ve already seen more sunshine this year than we did for the first five months of last year.
All that good weather has resulted in new growth, bursting buds and blooming flowers and blossom, which have found their way into my jewellery designs.
Here are some of my latest creations. If you fancy treating yourself to a little something to celebrate the arrival of spring, they are all available from my Etsy shop.
