Hello Sailor

Well this week a load of new jewellery will be going up on my etsy shop. I have been busily slaving away trying to get as much as possible done. I've also been experimenting with new photography techniques and backgrounds and I'm really pleased with what I've managed to achieve. I had to show you this new anchor necklace because I love it, so much so that I may have to make one for myself to wear. If you love it too, you can buy it here:

I got a full size mannequin through today, which I am super excited about because it means I finally have something to photograph my longer necklaces on. I've named her Dolly. I'm slightly worried she may come alive at night and try to kill me. Wow. I've been watching far too much Psychoville.

Ta Ta For Now xx

Waterfront Festival

The Waterfront Festival on the 11th July at Clarence Dock in Leeds was great. Even though it was a bit blustery, the rain stayed away and the sun even came out. There were lots of visitors and the entertainment was great. All my jewellery went down really well and I sold quite a few pieces of my new Alice in Wonderland range, so I was really happy. I would definitely recommend this festival to any crafty folk in the area. Make sure you have lots of sturdy display stands though, otherwise you may lose your stock to the river! Ah the perils of outdoor craft fairs.

Only 13 days until the next jewellery giveaway is announced. I'll remind you all again nearer the time. If anyone wants to join the mailing list to receive news about giveaways, special offers and other highly interesting topics please send an e-mail request to and I'll add you to it.

Hope everyone has had a lovely weekend. Mine was filled with delightful friends, yummy Croque Monsieur, a trip to Wagamammas and Harry Potter. Hurrah.

I went to Filey with my boyfriend last week for a few days and had such a nice relaxing time. The weather was a bit unpredictable but it added to the fun. We did lots of walking and went out for meals and won our body weight in bears at the arcades. I also made friends with a cat, played travel Cluedo and ate yummy baked goods from Sterchi's. It was so great to get away for a while. I think the next few weeks may end up being a bit crazy so it came just at the right time. Here are some pictures of two of my bears and some Filey boats for you to look at. Hope you like them :)
