A little trip

Went a little trip to Edinburgh at the weekend and had a great time! Went to Bruntsfield and Morningside and stumbled across some lovely little boutiques, vintage shops, charity shops, jewellery shops and even a makers market! Was nice to see a side of the city I had never seen before! Afterwards I headed back into the city and wandered through the German market under the Christmas lights and I even got to see Santa! Was a great day in a lovely city.

Playing with wire

One of my favourite materials to work with when making jewellery is wire. Here is two rings I recently made using silver wire. The first is a more structured piece with a Hematite cabochon. The second is a tube setting in wire with a Aquamarine faceted stone. Both rings have been oxidised to give a darker colour to the silver.


 A few designers I've recently stumbled across that I love ...

A few holiday snaps from my recent trip to New York. The first photo is the view downtown from the Top of the Rockefeller Centre. The middle photo is the Manhattan Bridge taken in Dumbo, Brooklyn. Finally the last photo is of the Williamsburg bridge.

New York I LOVE you

Where to start? I had such an amazing time when I was in New York although five days was just not long enough! I saw so many things and came back home feeling so inspired (and a little sad!) All good things do come to an end but I know that I will definitely visit again hopefully many many times!

If you guys have any travel tips i'd love to hear them :)

I love

Recently stumbled upon CALLA by Calla Haynes while researching for a project. I love how using her prints she creates simple structures and creates gorgeous designs. I absolutely love her work!

Making use of the little space I have

I have always struggled to find somewhere comfortable that I could work from and it would have everything I need. So I decided to turn a little cupboard in my house into a work area where I could use my computer and have a place to draw.

I am soooo happy with how it has turned out! Its a perfect little place for me to work!
