Further to our Honeybourne Jewellery 221B door pendant post in January, the designer, Sophie Honeybourne, tells us she was, “hit by a tidal wave of Sherlock fans” interested in where they can get their very own miniature Sherlock door.

Sophie has been hard at work designing cast versions of the hand made doors we featured, and was delighted to see Sherlock series producer Sue Vertue wearing her piece at various Sherlock events recently.

After creating the new, un-finished, un-oxidsied piece in solid silver ready to be cast, Honeybourne Jewellery promises, “not long now” as they were sent to the casters last week. These cast versions will still include Sophie’s meticulous attention to detail and exceptional quality, but be considerably easier on the wallet than the original one offs.

We’ll keep you up to date as to when they will be available to order on Sherlockabilia.com, and also be sure to keep an eye on the Honeybourne Jewellery Facebook page for the latest news on them, not to mention even more exciting Sherlock inspired pieces Sophie has in the pipeline.

Jewellery Designer opens the door to Sherlock inspired designs

One of the most exciting talents on the UK jewellery scene currently, Sophie Honeybourne, has turned her creative eye to the production of a miniature world of our favourite consulting detective in the form of Sherlock inspired pendants.

Sherlockology met Sophie, a graduate of the Royal College of Art whose work is exhibited in many prestigious galleries around the country, last summer while visiting her jewel-box shop and studio in the Victorian seaside town of Ventnor, Isle of Wight.

After falling in love with her work, the conversation naturally turned to Sherlock Holmes - as is so often does with us - and soon the idea germinated for Sophie to design a Sherlock inspired piece for us.

“This is exactly the kind of commission I love to work on,” Sophie told us, “My husband and I are also huge Sherlock fans, new and old, and frequently listen to the BBC audio plays whilst working in the workshop.”

The result was a truly stunning miniature replica door in oxidised black sterling silver with 9ct gold door numbers, knocker and letterbox. Taking a closer look reveals Sophie’s extraordinary attention to detail. She even includes the keyholes and decorative glass panel above the door. “I got completely locked in to miniature Sherlock world,” Sophie later explained after presenting the finished pieces to us. “I hadn’t really seen the leaded glass window on first inspection and had to spend a lot of time on it as was such a lot of tiny detail. It has been one of my toughest challenges yet, but a very cool project to work on!”

Sherlockabilia.com are looking to offer Honeybourne Jewellery ‘221B’ hand finished cast sterling silver miniature doors soon, but in the meantime you can visit Sophie’s website at HoneybourneJewellery.com, find her on Facebook or pop into her shop in Ventnor, which is well worth a visit.

Sherlock Lego set receives comments from the LEGO Cuusoo team!

Having received over 6k out of the required 10k votes for a chance of making the Sherlock Lego set by Flailx a reality, the team at LEGO Cuusoo have taken notice and left a comment on the concept page!

This project has been gaining supporters so quickly we can’t keep up with it! It’s clear that fans of the BBC show have really come together on this, and there’s no mystery as to why. You’ve captured the characters and the consulting room wonderfully, right down to the famous deerstalker (although how do you stalk a deer with a hat? That’s a case not even Holmes can solve).  

Best of luck as you continue on your journey to achieving 10,000 supporters, although something tells me you wouldn’t need luck. 

Sorry, got to dash. I think I left my riding crop at the mortuary.
