Founder Deborah Blakeley is on a mission to expose the pulse of contemporary arts and crafts practice.

Through her in-depth dialogues with makers across the globe, from all disciplines, Deborah artfully brings to light the common threads that drive the creative spirit.

Deborah diligently researches the featured artists in order to elicit from each their deeper motivation. Often questions  juxtapose elements of their working practice that, in answering, bring to light new connections for the artist-maker and audience alike.

The ever expanding collection of interviews present a comprehensive view of the creative arts today, making for a fascinating and informative read for both appreciators and makers.

New – Precious rings with stones

Experimenting with ways to incorporate these beautiful and mysterious quarts cat’s eye stones into rings….

Each stone requires an individual response, further emphasising their respective characters.

They’d look fabulous in gold, against those watery green, shimmering gems!

Winter inspiration – The beauty of our natural world

We were warned of the coldest winter on record; it seems the UK has slipped through a crack in the polar chill.

I’m glad to be warm – if wet – and happy to reminisce of the beauty of ice sharp days with these photos of the ice of 2011!

Images of nature feed the creative mind as we find inspiration in the cycles of life, patterns of growth, then textures, colours and forms that result. It’s a beautiful world!

ice crystal formation on leaves, inspiration for jewellery

I love how these ice crystals creep like a fringe along edges…

ice crystals, beautiful patterns, inspiration for jewellery

while these burst like flowers from any surface…

ice crystal formation on grass

growing ever more complex

till the sun’s rays break the chill

contrasting texture and colour

And the ice recedes to give the earth a chance to recover

winter sunshine

before dusk.

Aggressive marketing strategies with dubious ethics – where do we draw the line?

It has come to our attention that the London Jewellery School has been running online advertising campaigns that have used our trading name Flux Studios in the heading of their adverts, for an unknown period of time.

The London Jewellery School has also been paying Google (and possibly other search engines) to use ‘flux studios’ as a keyword for their advertising campaigns.

Flux Studios has been the victim of an aggresive marketing campaign by London Jewellery School

This is a screen shot of the Google advert run by the London Jewellery School, showing that Ms Jessica Rose has used Flux Studios as the leading title to her advert. The note to the right shows that Ms Rose has also paid for the use of 'Flux Studios' as a keyword search term.

We have been made aware that people seeking to connect with Flux Studios through the internet have inadvertently connected with the London Jewellery School through these strategically placed adverts online.

Flux Studios has been the victim of an aggressive marketing campaign. What purpose could it serve for the London Jewellery School to use the Flux Studios trading name as the introductory wording for their online advertising campaign?  How ethical is it to pay a high premium to use an unrelated trade name for a keyword in advertising campaigns?

What purpose could it serve for the London Jewellery School to use the Flux Studios trading name as the introductory wording for their online advertising campaign?

We wish to make clear that at Flux Studios our ethos and our activities are not linked in any way to the London Jewellery School.  Flux Studios is a wholly independent jewellery studio and jewellery school with no connection to London Jewellery School whatsoever.

If you have been misled into visiting the LJS website when looking for Flux Studios or if you have mistakenly joined their membership or courses we suggest that you take the matter up with Ms Jessica Rose at the London Jewellery School.

On 4 October 2013 Ms Rose removed the advertising campaign at our request, also stating that she had  ‘no want or need to dilute’ our ‘brand’ and will not run the campaigns again.

As Ms Rose has declined to comment further it is unclear to us why LJS should feel it necessary to implicate our trading name and our reputation in the advertising of their own business. Ms Rose has made no acknowledgement as to the intent or potential damage this campaign may have caused to Flux Studios. She has also declined to reveal the length of time for which this online campaign has been running.

We have been advised that this advertising campaign appears to mislead and divert the public from Flux Studios to LJS, however we have decided not to take legal action against the London Jewellery School on this occasion.

We hope that in the future Jessica Rose doesn’t feel the need to use our business name to support her own business and activities.

Flux Studios was established in 2008 to support all elements of the Jewellery industry.  We are a wholly independent jewellery studio and school providing a professional membership scheme for jewellers who need specialist studio facilities to develop their businesses. We also provide a range of inspirational jewellery courses for the public to engage in jewellery making activities, to learn traditional silversmithing techniques with a contemporary influence.
