New Earrings

I've got that mellow relaxed feeling at the moment, knowing I've got the next two days off work. But it does mean I'm working this weekend though........

My plans for tomorrow (Weds) are to make a start on a project for Bead magazine that needs to be in by December. I know what I'm doing it's just taking the step-by-step photos and the weather issue! It's meant to be a bright day tomorrow so it should be full steam ahead (camera battery on charge as I write!)

I managed to get all of my new earrings photographed last week which is always a relief. Here's some of them.......


These green enamel ovals have been hanging around for a while then I suddenly thought those pretty pink and green czech glass nuggets might go ok with them!


Dogtooth Amethyst and sterling silver hoop earrings made as part of my last Bead project


I twisted the copper wire for these using my Dremel


I'm planning on making more of these in other colours.....


I had fun stamping these copper dis…

New Look Folksy & A Featured Item!

After a few teething problems yesterday trying to access the newly relaunched Folksy site - I had to install Firefox due to problems with IE8 closing the page, I managed, about an hour later, (wasn't impressed!) to get to see my new improved shop.

I do like the new look but think it's appalling that there were so many bugs on relaunch day............

Anyway, it was nice to see a pair of my enamel earrings in the Featured Items section on the front page, which takes up the entire front page now!

Here's the rest of the lovely items chosen for the page :

All The Reds - Folksy Featured

It was a lovely surprise earlier when I went to sign into my Folksy shop to see my red enamel poppy earrings as part of the current Featured items on the homepage!

There's some really lovely stuff on there at the moment with a red theme. Definitely worth a look!





New Stockists And Catching Up

I've been busy recently making stock for two new stockists! I gave myself two weeks to make 22 pairs of earrings including earwires and oxidising and polishing them all and did it in just over a week working in the afternoons when I'd finished my part-time job. Am I the only one who likes to get things done and out of the way rather than have it hanging over me?!



Here's some of the enamel stuff cooling on my soldering block. That is NOT our carpet!! It's the doormat by the back door where I took the photo cos it was nice and bright. Good forbid anyone should think that grubby, cat-hairy delight was gracing the entire floor :D

All the earrings were dutifully packed up and sent on their way and can now be found in ArtFully Made, a lovely gift shop run by Tamsyn Simmonds at 14 South Street, Wellington, Somerset and at Good Girl Designs, a shop run by Nicola Hunt at Area One, 2 Old Dairy, Twitter Lane Waddington, Clitheroe in Lancashire.

Catching Up I've since been trying …
