Posted Selfie - Lithy Harrison

A big congratulations to Lithy, the winner of The Silver Forge Selfie Competition for 2015! Lithy has been having a bit of a shop-up with her voucher, and I hope she’s been enjoying it heaps. Some more of my beautiful entrants below:

You can check out all the wonderful entries on The Silver Forge FaceBook page or on Instagram  – just search for #silverforgeselfie.

Keep an eye out for some more of these lovely pictures in the customer testimonial section or as part of my product listings on my website!

A very big thank you to everyone who entered – it was really gratifying to see so many of you lovely people wearing your Silver Forge pieces – it made my heart glad, and I think I’ll do it all again next year!

The Silver Forge Selfie Competition 2015

After some customers posted some great pictures on my FaceBook page recently of themselves wearing some of their Silver Forge jewellery, I thought I’d love to ask you all to show me pictures of your beautiful selves wearing pieces I’ve created – it’s such a buzz seeing someone wearing something I’ve made!

With that in mind, I thought I’d run a competition ~ the prize will be a $100 voucher to spend in The Silver Forge shop. All you have to do is post a photo of yourself wearing your Silver Forge piece: either to The Silver Forge FaceBook page, or on your Instagram or Twitter account. The winner will be randomly selected from all the entries across the board.

Most important – don’t forget to make sure you use the hashtag #silverforgeselfie so I can see you!

If you aren’t on any of these social media, don’t despair! You can email me your picture and I’ll make sure you’re entered in the draw.

If you enter the competition, I may post your pictures onto my social media accounts as mentioned above, or pop some of your pictures in the customer testimonial section or as part of my product listings on my website to show you off – just so you are aware! 🙂

The winner of The Silver Forge selfie competition will be randomly selected on 14th February 2015. (Valentine’s Day, I know!) You may enter one photo for each piece of The Silver Forge jewellery that you have – each photo will count as one entry, because it’s nice to have your loyalty rewarded.

I know I said ‘selfie’, but if you’d really rather someone else took the photo of you, I can bend the rules a little!

If you have given someone else a Silver Forge piece, it is fine to enter a picture of them wearing it, as long as you have their permission.

It doesn’t have to be your best glamour shot unless you want it to be; you can make it quick, make it fun, make it quirky – just show me your Silver Forge selfie! Darers go first, so they say, so here’s me with some pieces I’m wearing atm just to get you started. Go for it!

Folt Bolt Feature

I was happy to be featured recently on the Folt Bolt Blog – a link to the full piece here. (Kriszta has the most divine font, which doesn’t show up in this post). What a gorgeous website! I love the way Kriszta combines colours and textures in her montages. A fab way to advertise! Here’s the piece Kristza put together, with interview blurb provided by yours truly:


Ruthie Gray – The Silver Forge


At The Silver Forge, I handcraft limited edition and one-of-a-kind sterling silver jewellery.

My passion is making well-designed, comfortable, fun, wearable art pieces for people to enjoy every day.

All my pieces are made entirely by hand using traditional methods and tools in my own studio in Brisbane, Australia.

I believe in leaving the smallest eco-footprint possible on our earth, so I’m pleased to say the silver I use is sourced from an eco-friendly manufacturer.

I’m inspired by gemstones and glass; by nature, especially by the ocean; by architecture and maths – and most importantly of all, by colour!

My shop is full of vibrant pieces for you, or I would be happy to consider any requests for custom orders no matter how small or quirky – I’ d be pleased to work with you to create with a design for your dream piece.

Kriszta adds:

I offer 10% discount off anything in my shop on 2nd and 3rd of June, just use FOLTBOLT10 as a coupon code!

I’m glad to be a part of your lovely blog, Kriszta, thank you for the feature!
