5 minutes of quiet time

Sometimes it is needed to sit quietly with a cup of tea and some reading material, just for a little while, so that I can stop my mind racing about all the things I have going on. Now, I do love to read books but just don't have the time to really get in to one at the moment, so magazines do the trick.
I don't buy many (I would if funds let me) so the ones I do buy are a treat, one being lifestyle magazine Oh Comely.

This month they are running their Perfect Strangers scheme, a pen-pal like project that gets people to reach out, to be creative and send a parcel of happiness to a stranger. I decided to sign up as it sounded fun and last week I was given my swap partner, Kerri in Anchorage, Alaska.
They give a small list of things to include in the parcel which I'm currently collating and will post about once it has been sent and received.

What to include...

  1. A modern day message in a bottle - a USB in a jar with a playlist/photo's/fave film etc...
  2. What's in my bag - empty the contents of your bag on a photocopier and annotate the image, or send a fresh sample of something you're never without.
  3. A wintery treat - something that makes you feel cosy on a winters day.

Holiday Markets Are Coming!

Eeeeeeek! It's almost here, the big festive bonanza. I have two very big Christmas markets around the corner and I'm not gonna lie, there may have been tears and tantrums, but it is all beginning to come together nicely.
For the first time I am taking my jewellery to London, on November 22-23 I will be taking part in Renegade Craft Fair at the Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane. Visit their website here to find out more about the fair in London and others across the USA.  
Then of course it is the Bath Christmas Market, find me in a chalet on Bath Street from December 4-14, I have been making plenty of loveliness for you to come and get your hands on... here are some bench photographs of work in progress over the past few weeks...

typically.pretty.pinned - 2/14

I was recently questioned about my Pinterest boards and blog, a lady wanted to know why I link these personal things to my shops and Facebook page, so I thought I'd explain here too. I do pin and blog about personal things but I feel that it is all relevant to the way that I work, these are the things that inspire me or ramblings about the days that make me want to make something new. I link these areas of my world together to give those of you who may be interested a taste of my thought and design process, a little behind the scenes glance.

So, if you like, here are some delights that have caught my eye on Pinterest lately...

Sunshine means sandals!

Finally there is a hint of summer in the air, dreams of beach days and festival fields are nearer to reality. With this firmly in mind I have been working on pieces to adorn your summer wardrobe, think pretty toes and bohemian dresses with layers of folk inspired jewellery.

See what you think...

oh! so pretty anklets £20 each
oh! so pretty toe rings £15 each
primitive arrow pendant £30
ancient fir pendant £30
