My new and very fresh website is being built!

I am so excited about my new website...
I have loved my old site for four years... I loved the dark intrigue and the cosy feel of it!  I have never loved the way you had to go to up to 4 pages deep to get what you wanted though... not so easy to navigate and somewhat overcomplicated at times.


Not any more!  I have been lucky enough to meet a great young web designer and developer... Dominic Whittle...  who has performed some kind of magic on my new site!!!

The brief was fresh and fun to visit, but VERY easy to navigate and fun and very safe to actually shop in...
I can't wait to show you through it, but in the mean time Dominic has posted a sneak preview on his blog. just link through for a glimpse of what is to come.

I will be promoting the new site with some fun when it is up and running, so stay posted!

I would like to send a shout out to Pete Saunders, a fabulous graphic designer, visual communicator and video artist... working out of Hobart,  thanks for finding Dom for me Pete!

                                                                                                                              Cheers and best wishes
                                                                                                                                      Jenny Mills

The Foundation Collection explained

The Foundation Collection

foundation collection 
foun•da•tion  |foun’da sh ən | noun
 (also foundation garment) a woman’s supporting undergarment, such as a girdle.

The inside story
The foundation Collection was designed to meet all your needs..
These pieces are designed to be put on first, wear all the time and layer with your other jewellery... 
they look pretty by themselves and fabulous with most other pieces of jennymillsjewellery.
Just like foundation garments, what you put on first affects how you feel all day... :o)

The packaging is also a carefully designed and significant part of the foundation collection.
A cute little round tin with a clear lid contrasts with the very beautiful swiss lace draw string gift pouch inside.  The idea is to emphasise the simplicity and quality of each piece, while showing you that nothing can take away from the appeal of these pretty pieces!
The perfect gift!  
The complete package is easy to post... suits everybody... very affordable and yet still very appropriate to the person who has everything... else!
Very popular for the bride as a gift to her special attendants on her big day...

Sterling silver or gold filled very fine snake chain support your necklace and bracelet... flexible and light to allow your swarovski crystal feature to hang beautifully and sparkle with no distractions!
The clasp is a fine quality sterling or gold filled trigger clasp, also light enough to stay at the back... and sit nicely when worn. 
The crystals are superb swarovski crystal in neutral colours to go with anything and anybody!   There are several exciting styles available... please refer to the website to choose which style you would like... hover your mouse over this page to find the many links to my web site...

The earrings are my favourite... 
I think we all need a pair of these... for work, for everyday, and even for night... these are the perfect foundation piece!  The fine quality  earwires are available in sterling silver or gold filled and are small and comfortable in the ears... short and unassuming... perfect! 

I wear these pieces, my beautiful daughters all wear them and many of you already wear them as well!  They have been bought for the wedding party, as a gift from the bride to her special girls...   for birthday gifts to a special friend, work colleague or that difficult to buy for friend.  These are a perfect idea for the gift cupboard... there when needed for Christmas or that special day in the life of someone dear to you... perfect for graduation!

Visit jennymillsjewellery for further information on these cute items and place an order before December 25th to receive $10 off your order!  Just enter the code-   tenoff  - at check out for this discount to be activated for you...

14 weeks till Christmas!!!
Best wishes


to be noticed... to wear often... to enjoy

I will be looking for you at "the market"

JennyMillsJewellery will again be at "the Market" on Sunday...  love to see you there.

I will have some new pieces to view,   and also some nice new cuff links... at a very reasonable price and packaged for him!
As you have come to expect there will be my special little box of earrings to tempt you... these are simple and perfect for every day... made from sterling silver and gems, swarovski crystal, cubic zirconium  or pearl.  At only $20 it would be a good idea to buy some of these to pop in the "gift" draw for Christmas and for birthdays throughout the year.  They include a pretty gift bag so they look great and are secure and together in your jewellery draw.
As well will I will have some amazing and very unusual cocktail rings and leather cuff bracelets,  designed for the less conservative buyer!! 

So even though it’s Dad’s day on Sunday… why not pop in for a bit of a browse and see what you can find to top off your day!

Introduce yourself to me if you have read my blog or are a friend of mine on Facebook… I’d love to put a face to the name…    :o)

the market is held at the Masonic Temple no. 3 Sandy Bay Rd (directly opposite St David's Park) Hobart, Tasmania 7000

For the Fathers

Ok... so I made some crystal cuff links for our men for Father's Day... 

you know I don't have much for the boys on my website and thought they might look handsome in some slick but sparkly cuff links with their crisp white dinner shirts...


props to the girls! they came up with some amazing ideas of how they could wear these cuff links themselves... hahaaa I'm impressed and I'd love to see some photos girls!!!


Here's hoping the Father's out there do in fact manage to at least get to borrow some of these cuff links from their partners...

Me and You and Bosso & Boo

JennyMillsJewellery and Bosso and Boo Restaurant and Lounge Bar will be combining to create an ambient shopping experience for you and your friends.

Jo will welcome you with the smell of coffee and delicious finger food while the option to buy a glass of wine or a hot drink will enhance your afternoon.

This is also a chance for anyone, who hasn't visited Bosso and Boo Restaurant and Lounge Bar, to experience their eclectic, warm and inviting hospitality.

Displayed for your viewing will be the latest in a collection from JennyMillsJewellery.
I am particularly keen to show you my new leather cuffs and stunning cocktail rings. This is a great opportunity to view, try on, and ask your friends for feedback. Achance to consider items you might want as well as gift ideas.
I have included some crystal cuff links designed and made especially for your men to celebrate Father's Day next Sunday...

A Winter's Ring Exhibition

Tomorrow night is the opening night for a fun and different Exhibition in Hobart.   I'm excited to see what is put out for us to see! 

 A Winter's Ring!!!  What a great concept... something to brighten up winter in the world of Girl and Art...  This event will run from the 14th till the 27th of July at  Rebecca Roth & Cube Gallery,  Salamanca Arts centre Hobart.    I have designed three rings for this exhibition, which I've called "Messy chic".    They are vintage brass and vintage patterned fabrics and swarovski crystals and filigree and black chain... heavy, eclectic, messy and fun!!!!   I'll hold off on the photos until after the opening night to keep you in suspense, but I had a tiny peak today and I can't wait to have a closer look at some of the fabulous rings in the cabinets already!!!  Tasmania has some great jewellery designers and artisans.
In conjunction with this fun event is   Rainy Days 2010 , this exhibition is being put together by Jemima Boyer and is a novel display of no holds barred art designed and displayed on 10x10cm plywood blocks... the mind boggles!  I am definitely going to go and check these out!
So from tomorrow night onwards the place for some winter amusement and shopping will be  Shop 8, Salamanca Arts Centre, Salamanca Place. 
Best of luck with that girls, I am looking forward to it...

Had a big day at The Girl's Day out at the Point

Who popped in to the Girls Day Out? Was it what you expected?

I had a great day and met some great people and even put faces to some of my face book friends!! Thanks so much for making yourselves known to me... I love that.
I must admit though that I expected more... not from you of course!!!  But from the event....   did you?
The numbers were down by more than half from last year, more than 5000 visitors last year and around 2000 this year!!! That's a big drop!!!
I thought the fashion parades and the booths were better than ever!
What made the difference?
I know that a couple of great events were competing for the same date this year... The quilt and craft fair was on at the DEC, even I would have gone there if I wasn't pre booked! :o)
Also the Chocolate Festival at LaTrobe was a definite distraction!!!
So was it a clash of dates or poor planning or... was it as good as ever from your perspective?

I'd love your feed back on this, because I believe it could be even more fun for you all and I want the chance to catch up again next year!!!

Let me know what you want from The Girl's Day Out, what is your idea of a girl's day out?  It's a great idea isn't it? Who doesn't love a girl's day out... hahahaaa

This is where I'll be...

This Sunday... yes the Fourth of July... should be able to remember that date!!  - I will be showcasing my new leather cuff bracelets for the first time at "the market" at the Masonic Lodge in Sandy bay Road in Hobart.  Please open the links for more information if you hope to put this on your list of fun things to do on a Sunday in Hobart.
I have only just developed this design and must admit to being pretty excited about how they have turned out!!!
I love them!  They are large and noticeable, pretty and tough, and sturdy and adjustable...         you get the picture ...

So if you would like to see how one of these cuffs would look on your particular wrist be the first to pop in and visit me there... no- one who has seen them in the flesh, as yet... and there are only a few...
I would love your feed back and your orders... I will bring some colour swatches... and you can pick your fave,  be aware, though that as each is handmade and quite unique, they may not be exactly reproduced!!  We can, however,  create something just as unique for you.

Leather options are simply Brown or Black and wide or thin leather with adjustable press stud closures... should fit most...
the details are quite shabby chic. I have no intention of creating a pristine finish here...
The fabrics and crystals and other embellishments are of the highest quality, and I am quite pleased with the price.  Be warned ... there have not been many made yet, so be early to see the choices!  To complement these cuffs, I will be also bringing along my large and luscious cocktail rings. You may have seen some of them before, but look out for an ever changing range...
I am looking forward to catching up with you all!  I'm hoping to have a chat about what you like, what you don't like and what you'd like to see in the future... please do! I love to hear your ideas  :o)
hope fully see you there!

oh, and
a little but very important ps...

please visit the "breast cancer site" and check out their daily click programme... so easy to do and yet so helpful... cheers and thanks!

Jet and sterling silver rose charm cocktail ring - JennyMills Jewellery

Jet and sterling silver rose charm cocktail ring - JennyMills Jewellery

I have a secret love of creating rings at the moment... I don't know if it's because a ring makes me feel dressed and exotic... or a little frivolous and is proof that I am not about to do the dishes or the gardening....
A perfect gift in a classic style and colour as is this ring, just choose an adjustable ring base to be sure of the fit.
This beautiful black, shimmering cocktail ring is made from plenty of round, faceted shiny jet on just such an adjustable, heavy sterling silver ring band. It has beautiful hand made sterling silver rose and leaf charms.  It is weighty, classy and noticeable and a lot of fun to wear.  I am in the mood for rings so keep an eye on my web site and on this blog site to see what else pops up for the fabulous Australian winter ahead... and of course the signs of the Spring to come will also be reflected in the ideas I have already begun to formulate...
Take those gardening gloves off and pop on that cocktail ring!

Have you ever felt like your most amazing jeans are just a little tight in the winter months, or that you've tried on all your clothes and have nothing to wear...?

This might indeed be just a problem for me  ;O)
This is when the cocktail ring is the perfect friend... it always fits me and it always looks just as great and makes me feel just as special!!!  It doesn't judge... :o)

Let me tell you all about the little sterling silver charms in the next blog... they are a particular favourite of mine, and I think you will also admire them more after you see who makes them.

Distractions are a necessary part of my day...

We have gone from crisp sunny day to a cosy rainy evening. I have some projects under way... i am designing a couple of particularly arty necklaces for display at the Henry Jones Art Hotel in Hobart, and true to form, I have been distracted by the "new" templates on this blog site...  why do we have to be offered such fun toys to play with when we have work to do?
I'll post some photos when I have something other than ideas to show you...
stay warm on my side of the world, and stay cool on the other...
feel free to tell me about your amazing work ethic... it may motivate me!   :o)
