Christmas at RUST

10 December 2011

so, today is our open day at Rust, and it seems to go from tumble-weed, to Piccadilly circus from one minute to the next! Very odd, anyway I had a bit of time this morning to take some snaps around the shop area after we finally tidied up and put up some xmassy lights etc...

this is where customers order their wedding/engagement rings. I recently painted the top of that old table because all the old paint was coming off and sticking to people's clothes. nice.

our opaque diamond rings have had a couple of new additions, and also a necklace.

I used some different wool tweed in the cabinets, actually looks quite good with the shiny metals on top.

we found these seaweed prints in the market, they are so old, but have really nice colours in them.

our rose-cut diamond necklaces live under this dome.

we also just added some white gold 'Little Diamond' items such as studs and necklace. The are 9ct gold with Rhodium plating.

also, 18ct gold plating onto silver. Due to the rise in metal prices, we found the retail price of gold is going to be very high, so we started doing plating as a more affordable option if you like traditional gold colour.
make sense? I hope so, anyway they proved to be pretty popular so far!

Nao painted those twigs with emulsion.

so thats it, our crimbo decorations are not that xmassy this year for some reason, but anyways, I think the place looks cleaner after our floor sanding episode.

Hope all you's in and about London can come and visit us today or next saturday {17th} during our Open days as it is always nice to see blog fellows in the flesh! You might even get a glass of something cheap and bubbly ; )
