In the run-up to the Consortium’s Etsy Made Local Christmas market on 05 and 06 December at aspex, Gunwharf Quays, some of those who’ll sell at this will share a little about themselves and their businesses here on the Consortium’s website. In this post, find out a little about Boathouse Studio and their leather bracelets.
Designer Catherine Towers, AKA Boathouse Studio, creates a range of leather bracelets inspired by boats and the sea, from her coastal studio in Hampshire, which first began in 2013. At Etsy Made Local, Catherine will sell some of the designs from her soon-to-launch 2016 collection of handcrafted contemporary leather bracelets inspired by a love of sailing. Catherine says, “As the nights draw in and the long lazy days spent under sail seem a distant memory, this collection serves as a permanent reminder of having the wind in your hair.”
Boathouse Studio’s bracelets are crafted with ethically sourced quality leather imported from Europe in a wide range of colours, which is then bound in a wax cotton cord and secured with stainless steel pin shackles. These beautiful accessories mellow over time in much the same way as the sea shapes the coastline.
Designer Catherine Towers explains: “Having spent many happy times travelling under sail through the Mediterranean, and exploring the many markets on route, I wanted to create a collection to celebrate the colour and vibrancy I found. Finding beautiful, affordable jewellery was difficult in the UK, so I set about creating my own. The business grew as friends and family began asking me to create pieces for them, and now I enjoy sharing my work with a whole variety of clients across the World.”
Choose directly from the collection which mixes contemporary pops of colour and timeless classic combinations or make it personal stamping your own style by creating your own bespoke combinations.
This stylish collection is suitable for men or women and would make the perfect gift for your husband, wife, partner, brother, sister, boyfriend, girlfriend or best friend, as the festive season draws near. Perfect worn alone or with others for a layered look. Boathouse Studio’s finished pieces come packaged in a velvet pouch and tissue wrapped, ready to give to someone special this festive season.
