New promotion material and a new dichroic brooch.

Woo I'm off on holiday to see my family for a week so just a quick post today!

How cute are these lovely new earring cards. I'm really pleased and think they do my earrings justice.

As promised this is our new flyer -

I made this lovely fused glass brooch for my Aunt. The combination of a variety of clear dichroic glasses I think look really effective and look forward to trying this again in more jewellery.

Pulborough Brooks and Some new jewellery designs.

I had a lovely weekend in the studio making fused glass jewellery on Saturday and then Sunday with my Dad at Pulborough Brooks. We were lucky with the weather it was jumper weather but the sun kept peeking through. Our best spot was a spotted redshank - which admittedly was pointed out by a member of RSPB staff! The lovely tortoiseshell butterfly above sat and posed for me, I am quite clumsy and usually scare them off! Below are the most massive cows - they look quite small in the picture but I wouldn't want to meet 1 on a dark night no matter how passive they are!

An example of my fused glass jewellery

Green Goddess is a further wirework experiment - I love the effect wrapping the coloured wire has given but it look forever!

Below Billa Bang Necklace I feel needs no explaining it's just billa bang!
Have a great weekend x

This week my creative juices have been flowing...
I've really been enjoying making new designs.

This week I've included my new selection of earrings. I gave up making earrings for a while as have been quite unsuccessful in selling them but actually I think that has been more down to my presentation... we've had them hanging on a jewellery tree so not so easy to access. We have just ordered some lovely personalised cards so not only will these look more professional but they are a really cute design.

A few other really lovely things have happened - we got our jewellery party flyer's designed by and printed they look ace I'll see if I can get a copy uploaded. Also we have been confirmed for a ladies night in July.

These cobalt blue earrings I gave to my friend as a little pressie. I made the beads myself and they are probably the only 2 so far that even vaguely look like a pair!!
Have a great weekend! E x

Madrid, Tiara and my 1st picnic of the year.

My friend Lara and I headed off for a long weekend away in Madrid. Above is the palace square where it was great just to relax and take in the atmosphere - other tourists and locals enjoying the haven in this otherwise busy city. We watched flamenco, did some shopping, drank sangria and ate churros - not bad for 3 days!

So I finally finished Melissa's tiara. I really enjoyed making it and look forward to making others. She was really pleased and what can be better than a quirky design taylormade to you. :)
Woo I had my 1st picnic in the park with some great friends just catching up on all the fun stuff! I love picnics!
This weekend I'm hoping to take on a larger project - not quite so creative but the front of my flat needs painting! Cross fingers for sunshine! x x
