Love Craft!

I wanted to let you know about an exciting new project brought to you by the lovely ladies at Sophia's Influence. Based in my hometown of
Preston, Lancashire, their new project is called Love Craft

Love Craft, Love Lancashire
You can find them in what was once the Curry's shop in the Fishergate Shopping Centre, where they will be bringing crafty goodness  to our fine city on the first Saturday of every month. Everything is made or sourced in Lancashire so make sure you don't miss out on this great opportunity to support local crafters and purchase some beautiful items from around the county. 

At Love Craft's next event on Saturday the 3rd of August they will be holding a raffle to raise money for Royal Preston Hospital's neonatal unit - if you would like to donate a prize or find out more information get in touch with Love Craft through their facebook page.

etsy update!

Hello lovelies! Remember those sea worn tiles I was on about last time? Well here is my latest finished piece using these little Spanish treasures. 
I've painted the tiles with vivid hue watercolours in a drip design

then I triple glazed them with heavy duty jewellery glaze

the backs needed a little something, so I've decoupaged them using matching tissue paper and triple glazed those too

and finally I've attached this beautiful vine and leaf toggle clasp to keep it secure and gorgeous.
this necklace is for sale in my shop

             I've also been busy in the earring department. Here are a couple of my recent creations...

the mother nature earrings made with green acrylic leaf beads

and these lovely little danglers made with real turquoise.
