Enamel Heart Fest ! Valentine's Day Inspiration

I've been a bit obsessed with hearts lately...........what with Valentine's Day coming up Been busy with my saw and copper sheet and enamel powders creating these colourful cuties
Sawing mostly definitely is not my favourite thing but I did manage not to break any blades this time! And felt relatively calm and relaxed while I was doing it :D
Here's a selection of enamelled heart earrings and pendants all available in my Folksy and Etsy shops....













Here's a custom order in progress - the customer (a lovely lady called Jill who's just about to start enamelling herself) recently bought a pair of large raspberry enamelled hearts and asked if I could make her two pairs in royal blue. I'm not exactly sure what royal blue looks like (!) but used Aqua opaque with Prussian Blue transparent on top and Jill loves the colour so now I just need to make the earwires to finish them off  ♥




Handmade Findings Now On Etsy!

I've finally gotten round to listing my handmade copper and sterling silver findings in my Etsy shop!

I've been making my own findings for a couple of years now and noticed the distinct lack of handmade earwires and headpins, especially in pure copper, that were available to buy in the UK. So I thought I'd start selling them............

I opened another shop on Folksy - Cinnamon Jewellery Findings in June 2011 and a findings shop on eBay about the same time and I'm pleased to say the sales from these, particularly eBay, tick over nicely keeping me busy and have made sure I've definitely got my money's worth from my torch and tumbler!

So I decided to try them out on Etsy where there's lots of US sellers selling handmade findings but not that many UK sellers. I've had several findings sales on Etsy already so fingers crossed they will prove to be popular!

A nice surprise this morning - my handmade copper headpins are featured on Folksy's homepage  in their "Handmade Supplies" Featured items!

Lots of lovely stuff to look at including some cute fabric covered buttons and handmade lampwork beads. Got to say my favourite is the ceramic raku button ♥
