Meet Leigh’s Three Peas…

    One of my customers, Leigh ordered a pea pod necklace with 3 tiny silver peas representing her 3 gorgeous children – Dylan, Lola and Isaac (above – aren’t they adorable!) She made a special request for me to engrave each child’s initials on the back, so she could literally keep them close to [...]

Happy Mother’s Day!

  My sister and I sent this rose necklace to our lovely Mum, as she is born in June and so this is her birth flower. In my opinion the rose is one of the loveliest flowers around, which is very fitting for my Mum. I love the way the edge of each unfolding petal [...]

A little bird told me…

  …that although she has had a sad time recently,  she has learnt to take the time to really appreciate the things that remind her that life can be wonderful. Like a sunrise that takes your breath away, the first blossom that signals the end of a hard winter, or stopping to hear a bird singing in [...]

Addicted to your Blackberry?

  You definitely will be addicted to this one, and it’s a lot less stressful than the tappy kind too! Now, I am not a gym bunny, but one of my favourite things is a long walk with my husband in Kent. Well, when I say long walk I mean a few miles walk, with a massive [...]

From tiny acorns…

Tucked away within its dimpled shell, a tiny tawny coloured gem sparkles discreetly. This little acorn would make the perfect gift to yourself or [...]

Birthdays and butterflies…

  Ooh I’ve had a lovely birthday this year! I had a very nice weekend away with my hubby, and felt very lucky to receive lots of nice cards and pressies from my lovely family and friends. And, although I usually make jewellery for other people, this week I made something just for me. I can’t [...]

A Rose by any other name…

  …might smell sweeter, but would they look as sweet? Last week, my lovely hairdresser Toni asked if I could design a necklace for her four bridesmaids. She is getting married this summer and is struggling to find a necklace to go with the gorgeous fifties style dresses she has bought for them. Talking through [...]

Oh Mr Postman…

With Valentines Day just four days away, it’s the perfect excuse for me to make this loved up little necklace. Wouldn’t you love this to drop through your door on the 14th?  I wanted to give it a bit of a vintagey and romantic feel – what says vintage romance more than a handwritten love [...]

Down at the bottom of the garden…

Despite the ground currently being so frozen, one vegetable has made it through the cold – and is the proud new addition to my collection. The little pea pod! My little sister’s birthday is coming up soon, and I wanted to make something special for her. When I went brunette last year, friends couldn’t believe how [...]
