Well, the answer to the question about my own Instagram feed is that results vary – and quite significantly! Partly this is due to my testing out the benefits of “pods” or “engagement groups” and partly, I suspect, it is to do with the hashtags I am using. Life is a learning curve and, when you’re late to the party, it’s not always easy to edge in to a crowded room from the front door. I wonder if sharp elbows would help??
Just my colours – this lovely brooch is sterling silver, set with a beautiful cabochon amethyst and some lovely pearls. The Glasgow School of Art attracted many talented artists and the Glasgow Girls created art in many different forms. This has inspired our silversmith to create this beautiful brooch which looks to the Art Nouveau period. It’s a really special piece of jewellery. #artnouveaujewelry #artnouveau #celticnouveau #brooches #artnouveaubrooch #silverbrooch
This is my most recent image on Instagram – I just love this brooch with it’s Art Nouveau inspiration but with it’s interlacing design too.
This is definitely not a Celtic brooch – this is inspired by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, famous Glasgow architect whose designs can be seen in the Hill House, Helensburgh as well as the Glasgow School of Art, The House for an Art Lover and elsewhere. This brooch is sterling silver, made by a silversmith in Scotland, hallmarked in Edinburgh. #charlesrenniemackintosh #renniemackintosh #mackintoshjewellery #silverbrooch #silverbrooches #helensburgh #scottishjewelry #scottishjewellery #brooches #mackintoshdesign #hillhousehelensburgh #hallmarkedsilver #hallmark
When you see this brooch in real life – it’s an amazing piece of workmanship. The 3-d design brings the Mackintosh style to life. You can easily visualise sitting in a rose garden, looking at roses climbing up a trellis.
I’d love it if you would follow me on Instagram – my instagram name is @scottish_celtic_jewellery – looking forward to seeing you there 🙂
