Jubilee love...

I’m loving looking at all of the red, white and blue displays that are adorning the streets, shop windows and facebook pages at the moment!  So much so, I was inspired to put these cluster necklaces together....

Jubilee themed (but in a nice, non tacky way) they are based on an antiqued metal chain with various charms, pearls, roses, co-ordinating ribbon bow and a special ‘diamond’ (Swarovski crystal)!

I really enjoyed getting to make these; my time is so much more precious now that I have baby shaped priorities!

Next on the agenda are some bracelets.  Whilst conducting some market research (also known as shopping!) I noticed a huge resurgence in bracelets, both in the shops and on people.  I’ve got a couple of designs up my sleeve (get it........!) they just need finishing off then photographing!

In the workshop...

I’ve just taken delivery of some fab bits and pieces which I can’t wait to use!

They will be accompanying some Stampbord™ pendants to create some new jewellery designs which I am very excited about!

Still with a vintage edge and a hint of steampunk, there will be necklaces, earrings and bracelets featuring charms, chain, pearls and crystals..............the work bench is pretty busy at the mo!
