Funky Florals

I was very excited to receive a jewellery supplies delivery at the weekend - I will be posting photos of the finished items shortly. I love working with these lucite flowers, they remind me of the beautiful floral prints you get on 1970s retro fabric.

I know exactly what I'm going to make with these

  Funky floral fabrics (from my own collection) 
Perhaps an influence on my floral jewellery?

Finished floral chokers - More to come in "winter" colours

Mother Nature Loves You

Just thought I'd post a couple of photos of this lovely heart shaped rose petal that I found the other day!

Crafty Charity Shopping

Recently I found some fantastic vintage craft magazines in a charity shop. They even included segments on silver jewellery making, I'll share more pages in later blog posts. Fabulous!

Christmas Bazaar

Following on from my previous post - If I get a chance I'll try and sharpen up this image! (I only had a photo copy to work with)

I Don't Do Craft Fairs Anymore, But...

Last year I decided to cut down dramatically on taking part in craft fairs (that's a whole other blog post) however next weekend I am making an exception for Church Of The Holy Rude Christmas Crafts and Stall Bazaar! It takes place on Saturday 16th November in Stirling (at the Church Of The Holy Rude of course) I'm especially looking forward to the home made soup and baking in the South Aisle Cafe! An artist friend is selling cards and he has kindly asked me to share stall space, so I will have a small collection of jewellery for sale prices start at £5. See pictures below for a preview!

  "Vintage Rose" earrings 

 Brooches, bracelets, bag charms...

I couldn't resist a close up of the beautiful beads!
