Valentines Jewellery Fair

I spent Sunday at Northampton Saints Rugby Club for the Valentine's Jewellery fair.  It was a bit nerve wracking because I haven't done one for ages!  I met some really interesting people, and saw some stunning jewellery, some of which I just had to buy!!
So, this is my stand, I need to work on my display, but this was my low budget stand for the day:

I sold a couple of pieces too which is always a bonus!!

A tour of my jewellery box...

As you've probably guessed I spend a lot of time making jewellery for other people, so for once, instead of showing you new bits i've made I thought i'd take you on a tour of my jewellery box...

 
This is my jewellery box, I found it in an antiques shop and it was a bargain!  It's Victorian, red leather outside and red silk inside.  I absolutely love it!

 
So this is inside and the top layer, you can see i have my beautiful humming bird brooch that my mum bought me for my 18th birthday, the two fox rings I've made, some other rings and earrings and a few bracelets.  It's weird that I have so many rings and earrings as I dont tend to wear them very often!  But I'm attacted to sparkly pretty things!!

 
And that is the bottom.
In here I have my ghekko necklace which I bought for a ball last year, it cost me £35 which I thought was pretty good value!

 
And a bracelet I bought from a company called Pirate Verte - I love the stuff them do on their website, it's all beautiful!

 
This is mother of pearl and I think a resin heart.
I think that is all for now.  I'm off to make some other things now...

New pieces!

I've finally had some time to make some new pieces for my Countryside Collection - and I am really pleased with them!  People keep asking me for necklaces to go with the bracelet and earrings, so here we go... here are two to get us started!

 
Sterling Silver Pheasant Charm with Swarovski Crystals and a Fresh Water Pearl

My finished boards

I've finished making both of my display boards! YAY!
Just need to finish putting bits ont he spring collection board.
What do you think?
 
 

Jewellery Fair Preparations!

I'm going to a jewellery fair on 14th February, so I have started getting my bits ready (brilliant distraction from coursework!!)  I just thought I'd show you what I'd been doing, and how I make my display boards. :)

This is a board left over from a Christmas sale, as you can see I've started taking the old decorations off:

Next, I ironed a new pillow case to go on the empty board.  Pillow cases are brilliant because you can put pin boards, like the ones I use, inside them!

Then comes the clever bit - I staple the pillow case to the pin board, so that it looks like this:

I then re-used some of the ribbon I took off the original board and stapled it along the bottom of the board on the front:
 

I then made some heart board pins out of felt, and my finished board looks like this:

 
I'm so pleased with it! It looks really fun and will be perfect for use on Valentines day!! :)
Anyway back to coursework now...

Vintage Button and Pearl Bracelet

Another new piece being uploaded to my shop today:


A vintage sparkly button with beautiful 8-9mm peach coloured fresh water pearls and a silver plated toggle clasp.  The bracelet is 8 1/2 inches long, but comes up slightly smaller when worn due to the size of the pearls.

Spring and Summer Countryside Collection Pieces

I've started making my new pieces for spring and summer for the Countryside Collection.
I'm still waiting on some more charms to arrive, but I have one piece ready to go!
The photograph really doesn't do the pearls justice at all, they are a stunning deep purple with a silvery sheen, and the camera just couldn't capture it!

PMC Fox Ring


This is the second attempt at my precious metal clay fox head and tail ring before polishing, its come out really well!  Except for a crack that appeared behind one of the ears during firing, its come up really really well.

Fox Ring

I'm currently making a precious metal clay fox ring.  First one ended up a disaster!  So I'm currently making round 2.  Photo's can be found on:
