So, the previous post started explaining the process I go through to create my jewellery. Here's the next instalment. I have the chosen sections of the images in front of me. The shape of the pendants are drawn out on the designs and cut out before being stuck into the bases. Then comes my favourite part, the beads. I'll show you the final stages in the next blog entry.

So after an exhausting weekend of exhibiting at BCTF, talking to lots of potential stockists it's now time to make all the orders I took. If I remember to take pictures I will show you the stages I go through to create the pendants, brooches and earrings. Stage 1 - Take the initial photos! I collect inspiration from all over but largely from flowers, plants, insects, birds and shells. Iguana skin Sputnik sea urchin Peacock feathers Stage 2 - Size according to the design using the computer and then print. I will show you the next stages...

Despite having blogged on and off for the past few years my shop and my blog have always remained separate but I have decided to unite them at last. It seems silly having the too in different places when they are so closely linked in my life. So here you will find my thoughts, news and inspiration for my work.
