New Bits New Page

I have added a really uber summery necklace and earrings to my website today, they are shell-tastic and ooze sunshine. I think I may make some more shell bits, a mini collection. I have also added a Bespoke page, I have been meaning to for ages but today I finally managed it! I have had a few clients ask for Bespoke Charm Bracelets, Rings etc so I thought I would make life a little easier and add a dedicated Bespoke page.

K S Designs Give Away

Kirsten from KS Designs is running a give away this week. Her jewellery is exceptionally beautiful, so please do stop by and enter. Good luck xx

Back to Basics

Lordy, it has been a while since I posted. We have been away for Easter with a HUGE group of friends (8 adults and 11 children) in Dorset which was so much fun. Leo loved being around so many of his friends and being mainly on the beach, his idea of heaven.
I have been suffering with a real lack of jewellery making MOJO for a few month now, so I decided to go back to basics and make some Lariats. These were the very first bits of jewellery that I ever sold and I've not made any for several years. Well it seems to have done the trick and I am feeling all fired up again. I am planning to list these lovelies later this week, I feel the sunshine calling me outside for the rest of this afternoon!
I will be running a competition from the beginning of next week, so please do drop by and have a lookie xx

Fairy Door

I am sooo pleased. Thanks to Kathryn from Lazy Daisy Glass I have bought Leo a Fairy door from Bobless Arts at MISI We have told Leo that Fairy's sometimes put a door into little boys and girls houses if they are really special children, and they watch over them to make sure they have happy dreams (we have been having night terrors, poor baby) So this morning when he work up there it was, he was sooooo happy. He has just shouted to the door "Night night Fairy's, keep my dreams sweet please" sooo sweet. The door is lovely and arrived dead quickly, it is worth checking the store out. I would like to point out the bits on the hideous carpet are actually glitter not dirt! Whenever the Fairy's/Father Christmas come they always leave a glitter trail!

Feather Tastic!

Urg it has been a bit of a tough week this week. I have had a bit of an ME reappearance, which was a shock to the system as I have not had one for years. Anyhoo I ploughed through it.
Leo had an Easter Spectacular at Pre-School yesterday that I been working on. It was a fundraiser and went really well. Leo and I have spent a couple of hours (quite a feat for a 4 year old) making his feathertastic top hat creation which he won a prize for. He was dead proud of himself, and told the judge when asked; that he had made it himself with a little bit of help, but the table at home is now covered in lovely feathers. It ended with 20 sugar filled children roaring around the hall thoroughly enjoying themselves.
I have managed to make a few pairs of earrings this week, but the ME seems to have drained some of my jewellery making Mojo. I have the house to myself today so I am planning to get a few bits done and then I think I will have a lie down to try to recharge my batteries and Mojo!!
I have taken these picks au-natural, no light tent, what do you think?
