New from Sophie Filomena; the first release of jesmonite homewares has finally arrived!
Each dish has been handmade in my Bristol studio, sanded and had a slight varnish applied for extra durability.
Repurposed earring and clay off cuts, made into trinket dishes!
My small business generates very little waste, but I do have a box of jewellery off cuts, broken pieces and shapes that came out wonky.
I couldn't sell them, but I didn't want to throw them away either.
So here we are! I love the idea of keeping my handmade earrings in a dish made of earrings!
But lets face it, you can use these dishes for anything!
You can even see gold glimmers of jewellery findings and recognisable patterns I use in my work.
The material is similar to plaster or concrete, except it is very strong, lightweight and resilient. Not only this, but jesmonite is UV resistant, meaning the colour won't fade in the sun. As it is water-based, it is eco friendly, non-toxic, fireproof and waterproof.
I apply a thin amount of acrylic sealer to each design, to double down on the durability and make them scratchproof.
These are made of strong stuff - but just be sure to handle them with care. I send them in a secure and sturdy mailer, using beautiful packaging - so your order will feel like a gift, whether it is for yourself or a loved one.
Your dish can be used for anything! Keep your trinkets or keys here, or even use it as a soap dish or candle holder. What will you do with yours?
