Been working with claw and peg earrings today. Using both London and Swiss Topaz and some lovely Iolite to make these pieces. Look out for them in my etsy store soon.

Sat at the workbench today and notice that I had drilled a random hole in one of the rings I’d made ages ago. Then inspiration hit me and I start cutting this little fellow out. Not sure if he’ll be going up for sale but if anyone wants him he’s size S1/2 and the band is 5mm wide

Had a wonderful day at Newbury craft market today. Treated myself to this little cutie from Carol Hansen Art :) carolhansenart.com

This beautifully written book has captured my imagination. A narrative taken straight from the workbench/sketchbook it has ignited my need to design, and get making new and more exciting things.

Had a wonderful surprise when I got my Rob Ryan 2014 Calendar through the mail today. The package was wrapped in illustrated tape, there were also some surprises inside in the form of a printed newspaper with lots of Rob’s work in and a few lovely postcards :)

Finally got around to photographing this piece that’s been to the past 3 shows with me and not been on my etsy store. Check out my Linear Necklace at my etsy store.
