Where does the time go?

Already school holidays, and I've not blogged for ages! Have been up to my eyeballs with commissions and up coming exhibitions, so here are some new pictures, taken by my lovely and talented sister-in-law, Anna Boulter. Exhibition is already running at The Black Swan Arts, Frome, and work will soon be at The Rostra Gallery, Bath.

One for the boys!

This week I've been making something a little different - thought I'd try my hand at some cuff links. Thinking I could knock them out in a morning, I soon discovered that they are unbelievably fiddly, and naturally took twice as long as I intended. Hope the effort was worth it!

Click here to go my etsy shop and see the rest.

Something a little different

Thanks to the wonder of etsy, I have parted with rather a lot of money, buying wonderful vintage enamel flowers. Thankfully I'm not the only person who likes them, and I have sold a quite a few. Here are some pictures...thank you Wendy. Which reminds me, if you like these, you'll love Wendy's! See them here....

New pieces

Here are two new pieces finished very recently....

The first here is a blossom pendant - really sweet! It moves as you wear it, and all the blossoms have a little 18k gold blob in the centre.


On the right, a blooming fiddly piece that I love! Worth taking a closer look at on etsy, this one starts by putting the sheet silver through a rolling mill with some vintage lace to get the pattern on. Then I've copied the shapes from some other vintage lace, and hand cut it out of the sheet. The filed it, and filed it and.... but it was worth it, wasn't it?!

Where do I start? I am in cyberspace, blogging!

And why am I doing this? Chiefly to try to get more people looking at my work, commenting and ultimately buying and recommending! Also, encouraging people to look at other people's work that I like, and, importantly, to encourage you to buy handmade! Take the pledge...look at the links and buy from these brilliant craftspeople. I bought as nearly all of last year's Christmas presents via - wonderful, original and overall, unique presents.

That's it for now, going to go and put my links on. New items to come soon!
