I have made other things too. Please allow me to impress myself onto your retina (not like that): Bird necklace (polymer clay and nail varnish) Flowers (crochet, beads) Hanging Indian style charm (polymer clay, beads) Cushion (liberty fabric) And that’s what I’ve done recently. 🙂 Adieu!
Here are some bird brooches that I have made by laminating and sewing bits!
Holla! Ain’t no stoppin’ me. Copywritten, so don’t copy me. I have been making like a crazy lady for upcoming vintage fair thingy AND planning on going to Paris for Sam’s birthday. You know I love all things French: Eric Cantona, Sebastien Tellier, Brie, the phrase ‘ca suffit!’ (that’s enough), Brigitte Bardot, Coco Chanel, Pain […]
It’s been an immense week. First of all, I met this guy: http://www.thesumoguy.com/ who is one of the most brilliant and intelligent people I have ever met (he also works with Manchester City FC and Sir Clive Wooward – that’s how good he is), then the kids came back to school, which was lovely – I missed […]
Happy new year! New beginnings, fresh starts and exciting new projects to contemplate! Here are some finished works from previous posts (fan necklaces) and new projects (brooches, pendants and books). I will be selling these over in my Etsy shop soon. The weather is awful at the moment. It’s dark and stormy outside – but […]

I have an obsession with birds. I must admit, when I saw the sketch from Portlandia where they made fun of people who put birds on everything, it made me feel terrible, but then I laughed. I made this brooch. It’s detailed, so hopefully I can get away from it being made fun of! The […]
I’ve come over all Cleopatra and created a centre piece for a necklace. I get all of my gorgeous beads from the lovely Sheila at FunkyMo, who is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. I will eventually get round to beading a cord for this beauty and attaching a clasp. I basically […]
Wow. What a week. I went to my friend’s mehndi ceremony, which was beautiful. I was taken with the amount of colour and sparkly bits on display. I loved the food too. Samosas, spicy chicken, curry, rice – nom! My friend was very emotional but looked beautiful. Today is her wedding. I can’t wait. I […]
It is official. One of my hands is significantly thinner that the other. I blame it on crochet. I have at last finished my bag which is completely crocheted using single crochet stitch. I know. I’m mad. But a bag made from the single crochet stitch gives so much more strength than a larger, looser […]
