springtime in the studio...

now spring has sprung and I can no longer see my breath in the studio! I'm feeling totally inspired... working on new products and introducing more colours to my usual muted palette. Here are a few photographs of the organised chaos which is my workspace!

Cannot wait as it's my very first (hopefully of many) time joining The Vintage Fair on it's travels round the country.. the venue sounds amazing! what was St Paul's Church is now the centre for contemporary circus and physical performance.. roll on Saturday!

into interiors?

a fan of my pom pom necklaces asked me if I could make gigantic pom poms to use as curtain tie-backs....and of course I said yes!! That is the beauty of them....they can be any size & used to adorn almost anything!! Planning on all manner of interior pieces when I get a minute!! this space

pretty as a picture...

so those of you that know me know that I love nothing more than upcycling beautiful vintage buttons and fabrics into rings, one-off pieces of jewellery & other accessories. But some buttons I come across are just so pretty they belong in a frame...
