A bit of good news....

Just a quick blog post to share with you some recent developments.  Today I was offered a permanent job as a PA (I've been temping for over a year since being made redundant) at the place I'm currently working.  

On Tuesday, on my way to the Print Workshop to print my etchings (photos to come tomorrow!) I spotted that the gorgeous gift shop next door was open, as usually I'm there much later, so I popped in to see if there was any chance they would want to stock my jewellery.  I met with the owners today and showed them my jewellery and they will be selling my stuff as soon as I can get it made for them! I'm so excited and happy, everything just seems to be fitting into place perfectly! 

Have you had any good news lately?

Oooh, I have a spare minute :)

Sorry I haven't blogged lately - been busy doing all sorts! Here's a quick run down.....

  • last weekend I had my very first craft fair! It was at a lovely vegan cafe in Bradford - here's a pic or two... 

  • the Thursday before that was my last Introduction to Printmaking session at the West Yorkshire Print Workshop. I'm so addicted to it, I've joined as a member and have already prepared 8 copper plates with hard ground for etching, and have etched 4 of them with images of Paris.  I'll be printing them on Tuesday and can't wait to see how they turn out! Pictures will be taken :)
  • this week I took my jewellery in to work and made a quite a lot of sales and plenty of interest. Going to take it in again on pay day! 
I think that's all for now, apart from the usual (being busy making new jewellery and accessories!) - working on a Jane Austen charm bracelet commission today, and planning on giving resin another go tomorrow.

Vintage Vincent now available :)

I've just listed my pair of Vintage Vincent earrings on Folksy - more designs will be up in the next few days/weeks (depending how much free time I have!)

Preparation is key....

I have my first craft fair coming up next Saturday, so I've been busily making lots of new things.  Some were variations on pieces I'd already made, however I've also come up with some new ideas and even now have my own "line" of jewellery! Continuing my french theme, in particular retro adverts, here are some pictures of a selection of my new earrings -




The photos don't really do them justice - they're translucent, and in some cases transparent. I love them, let me know what you think!
