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.

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.

Bye for now!


Rain Rain go away!

I have been very busy the past couple of weeks working on lots of new ideas, designing my new winter range and also getting some of illustrations made into greeting cards. So now that summers over it was time to take my seaside collection out of my store until next year.... bye bye summer! but my seaside range won't be gone completely a new Lighthouse necklace will be available from next week along with some new anchor items and a ship and waves necklace.

Here is a sneak peek at a few of my new illustrations I've been working on,

I have also been working on some umbrella and rain cloud illustrations that will be made into earrings, brooches and necklaces, for all those rainy days and winter nights!

 Lots of new items coming soon, and a lot of new items to be added to my current ranges, which are all going to be photographed at the weekend and hopefully availble next week!

Well I best get back to work and stop looking at pretty things online! have a great weekend, lets hope the weather stays nice for the Saltaire Arts Festival.

Sarah's baby shower

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. Just a quick post I'm working on my new winter range so will have lots of new bits to put up soon, but for now I'll leave you with the bump picture! hopefully the next picture will be of my new niece!
