New Niobium

When I was in London at New Designers, I met Justine Lee, another maker who uses chainmail in her designs. Unfortunately I never managed to get a picture of her chainmail body piece, which was outstanding, but here is the image from her business card :

Her work really is amazing, it's a shame she doesn't have a website.

Anyway, on the last day of New Designers, she gave me a gift of some leftover niobium jump rings :

Niobium can be anodised in an amazing range colours and it's also hypoallergenic, so it's a great material to make jewellery from. I decided to have a go at trying out mixing some colours together, I love the black & gold ones. I'm not too keen on the blue, silver & purple ones,  but most people seemed to really like them.

Hopefully some more niobium jewellery coming soon!
