I'm a jeweller without a studio, for this reason I've been focusing on materials that don't require a lot of equipment lately. I have been working with resin for a few years now, a material which I love for the way it accepts colour and embedded objects and pictures. I'm also very interested in acrylic plastic and I plan to work more with that in the near future as well. My designs are bold and colourful.

My Etsy.com Featured Item!

Only a day after uploading photos of the bird broach to the left on my etsy shop, I sold it! This was probably due to the fact that it was featured on the main page of the site. I'm unaware as to how long it was up there, but during that time quite a few people took notice of the bird and my shop too! It was a very nice and unexpected surprise. I'm very proud of this pin, I just hope the buyer likes it as much as I do.

Little Purple Purse

This is not the sort of thing that I plan to sell (I'm not even sure if I could if I wanted to, because it's someone else's pattern), but I'd thought I'd post it anyway to show something else that I can do. I knitted this little purple handbag as a gift for my boyfriends niece for her second birthday. There's no picture, but the inside is lined with a light blue fabric so nothing falls through the holes.

I haven't been updating much lately because I've been focusing on my Etsy shop. Most of my latest projects have been put up there for sale. I've branched out from making a couple of custom resin belt buckles to making some more artistic ones of my own. I've also continued working with Precious Metal Clay and I'm starting to get better at it! The picture on the left is of one of my latest PMC pendants which was inspired by the forget-me-nots that grow in my backyard and it even contains a small amount of the flower covered in PMC slip.
