christmas thoughts.

Tuesday, 4 October 2011


So its October and although this past week it has felt like July! I have been working hard on some ideas for Christmas, and they will hopefully be available to buy on my not on the high street shop next week! along with free Christmas gift wrapping on all my items! to make it nice and easy for you all.

Instead of jewellery I am making Christmas decorations, Christmas bunting and possibly personalised Christmas decorations... (all this talk of Christmas is getting me in the mood for some good old Muppet's Christmas carol.... no no far too early for all that)

This idea all began when my sisters mother in law (to be) commissioned me to produce a robin brooch for her beautiful granddaughter. So i began working on some sketches and played around with patterns to see what affect I could create and then lots of other ideas started popping into my head... too many ideas and not enough time do them. So here's a sneak peek of my little Robin illustration and soon to follow my little Christmas pud.

A few of my favorite things part 2

Thursday, 22 September 2011


A while a go a did a post called a few of my favorite things, so I thought I'd make it a regular post with some of my favorite things by other designers....  but there are so many! I just keep finding so many things that I want to buy.. so if my boyfriend or mum are reading this please buy me some for Christmas!!

I'm going to start off today with a designer that really is one of my favorites! I Have already bought so many of her items and wear them most days, in fact I'm wearing my doggy brooch today. I  love her work so much and I noticed shes brought out some new items recently which I adore. She is the very talented Lucie Ellen her items are made in her shed come studio at the bottom of her garden in Suffolk. She uses old pieces of 1950's crockery that would other wise be thrown away to create stunning pieces of jewellery. She also works with reclaimed wood to create brooches, necklaces and earrings, here are a few images of my old time favorites and some her new items.

25% off!

New winter collection

Monday, 19 September 2011


This a bit of whistle stop blog post, I photographed lots of new items yesterday with the help of the lovely Louisa as my model but due to it been winter... and England it rained and the sun went  in so the light wasn't right to photograph my items, so still got a few items left to photograph. I have added a few items to my Not on the high street so please take a peek. But for now here are a few images.

I still have lots of work to do and working on a few commissions, but later this week I will be posting a few of my favorite things from some of my favorite designers and their new ranges so keep popping back.

Saturday, 10 September 2011


I haven't blogged for ages and keep meaning to and then something comes up! at the moment my sister is pregnant and ready to pop! (Wednesday.... unless shes early..or late!) and seen as I love her so much.. or just an excuse for cake and vintage tunes we decided to have a  baby shower. It gave me the opportunity to cover my house in bunting, teacups, garlands and most importantly an opportunity for me to make cake pops and 3 layer pink cake! We also did a few games and had a cupcake pinata! and a mini coconut shy. Sarah's boyfriend was on hand to take lots of lovely pictures, here are a few courteous of Stott & Atkinson

Tim took lots more pictures and made a lovely slide show so as soon as I can get my hands on it I will post it.

 Another one of my favorite sellers was Butterscotch ans Beesting Confectionery & Magic, her work is beautiful and the concept so clever I would love to see alot more of her work! She sells sweets and potions amongst other itemss that are all based around stories that she has created of Betty Butterscotch and her circus animals. I can't do her work much justices you need to vist her website yourself it is stunning! I treated myself to a yummy bag of Betty Butterscotch's Swirly Snails. I loved the story on the back of the packaging and they tasted yummy!
