Sponsored climb of Mount Kilimanjaro in aid of LOROS

June 30th, 2011

In September of last year the Alchemy family was left devastated following the death of our much loved Managing Director Sandra Phillipson, following her intrepid and spirited 9 month battle against cancer. Geoff & Kelin Phillipson (Sandra’s husband & daughter) have been working on a project to raise money & awareness for an invaluable institution that was such a comfort to San in her final days.

LOROS specialises in hospice care and, in order to help them to ( continue caring so compassionately for people in need, we would like to support them by raising funds.

In homage of San’s unfailing zest for life, Geoff and Kelin haven’t chosen a ‘sponsored bake off’ or a 5 km run but instead have chosen to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, in Tanzania, North Africa in aid of LOROS. Leaving the UK a week today on the 7th July 2011, they’ll embark on their monumental challenge to the very peak of Kilimanjaro, THE WORLD’S highest free standing mountain!

Committed to raising a MINIMUM of £7,000 for LOROS. They are now less that £1000 short of reaching their target, a week before they are due to depart the UK! Any donation you feel able to afford would be very much appreciated. In order to do this please go to and sponsor them via the personal sponsor website. Words of encouragement would also be appreciated! They’re going to need it.

Thank you in advance for all your kindness and support.

Let’s help them reach their target!!!

Alchemy Gothic: Westenra Choker/Westenra Spica (P593/E289)

June 14th, 2011

An intricate jugular garnish that speaks of decadent wealth, all the while hiding the bite that lingers beneath. Intricate pewter work, studded with green crystals and strung on a wide black ribbon for true baroque style. A perfect accompaniment comes in the form of stunningly decadent earrings, perfect to complete Lucy Westenra’s post-Whitby jewel set.

Beautiful, innocent and pure, well loved by all who came across her, Lucy Westenra could not have been less deserving of the fate that befell her. Though men queued to court her, Westenra’s frailty and weakness soon began to show; a sign of blood loss, something more sinister, of the vampire Dracula having chosen her as his latest victim.

Within days, and despite efforts made by her mother and the famed vampire hunter, Doctor Van Helsing, the girl was dead – but that was not to be the end of her story.

Tales of a striking woman who stalked the night in search of the blood of small children soon began to circulate – Lucy lived again, though this time as one of the sentient undead; a vampire created in Dracula’s own shadow.

Daedalus Penna Scienta (P594)

June 8th, 2011

Revealing the intrinsic beauty of the miraculous, mechanical, bat-winged flying machine.

Enamoured by the grace of bats in flight, the Victorian engineers of the Steampunk revolution took to studying the pull and strain of musculature that enabled such a miracle, and applied it to their machines – the better that humanity might be able to do the same, and soar through the smog of industry towards the stars and beyond.

Based on the early plans of these innovative pioneers, Alchemy has devised the Daedalus Penna Scienta pendant; not only to hail their ambition and ingenuity, but also to celebrate the intricate workings of such a fascinating miracle of nature.
