Yesterday I found some beautiful work by @emmafitts at my mothers house so I hung it up beside one of my sisters watercolours. They are lovely together!#emmafitts #francisupritchard #secretartworkstash #eastertreat #newzealandartist

I built a tiny dry stone wall today for my mother. Rather satisfying!#lockdown #drystonewall #upritchardsbeingupritchards

Today I painted some of the Easter eggs that I had blown for Easter. I was hoping to paint them with my nephews, Moss and Fenn, but we are all busy staying safe. Its nice to have something to celebrate during lockdown with my lockdown dream team. #easterpreparations #paintedeggs #diy #upritchardsbeingupritchards #rabbitsforeaster

My new slug buddies. They are weirdly regal... I guess all slugs are. I have to wait to cast them in bronze but in the meantime Ive coloured the Model Magic base in water colour ready to be cast later. #modelmagic #slug #watercolour #lockdownbuddies #bronze #sculpture #hannahrings #upritchardsbeingupritchards

Sometimes I make something and Im really surprised it came from me. This is a little bone chopstick holder and it somehow looks so ancient. I love his stocky, plump little frame. #hannahrings #bonecarving #horsecarving #chopstickholder #upritchardsbeingupritchards #myhorse #itstimlenkiewicz

Before and after little egg cups. Im so delighted with them. I sawed off the ugly, careless foot to reveal a really elegant cup. Thanks New Zealand charity shops. #upritchardsbeingupritchards #upcycle #woodeneggcup #handmade #lathe

I forgot to bring my ring clamp with me so I asked my father to make me one. Its inconceivably beautiful. Its ridiculous to be so lucky. I have a father and two brothers who hand build tools to my eccentric specifications. The tools are always stunningly beautiful, a joy to handle and work brilliantly. Look at this!#upritchardsbeingupritchards #homemadetools #alanupritchard #jewelleryworkshop #jewellerystudio #studiolife #madeinnewzealand #hannahrings #toolbox #tools

A marsupial in a knot. Its not easy for marsupials at the moment. I made this one for a friend and it just seems to describe the whole situation better and better.#marsupialsintrouble #australianbushfires #animalsneedingrescue #hannahrings

Acrobatic goat rings in silver. The stacking pair with black diamond eyes are me and my wonderful friend Sina doing our partner acrobatics together and the single with blue diamond eyes is for my father who was so jealous of the original goat ring that I made for Sina. Sina and I are both born in the year of the goat so this is a really fun ring with lots of layers of meaning. #acrobatics #jewelleryforacrobats #hannahrings #goatring #yearofthegoat #chinesezodiac #animalring #bespokejewellery #contemporaryjewellery

My very favourite packaging from last year. I cant show whats inside yet because its someones surprise for later but I can show the outside. The casing is from a beautiful smiling nut that I found in Brazil years ago. I made a little bronze cap for it and sealed it with sealing wax.. ..#packaging #foundobject #jewellerybox #homemadebox #handcarvedbox #upritchard #hannahrings

I just realised that I never uploaded this ring onto my shop in its original form. Its a nice one because the stone is set really low and it means it never catches on anything. #mudlarkring #mudlarkgarnet #hannahrings #upritchard #eastlondonjeweller

This guy got lost for ages and I finally found him again among my packaging materials so he is available on my shop for sale. -SOLD-#handpendant #oneoff #studio #eastlondonjeweller

My last cast of rabbit hooks went through a bit cold so the metal didnt flow properly. They still look lovely but their function as a hook is just slightly less obvious so Im selling these as studio seconds on my website. #rabbithook #hannahrings #studiosecond
