Monogrammed shoe in Swarovski Siam

I enjoyed this commission and added two cursive 'J' to these converse shoes. I can do this on any shoe you desire!


This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.

New Commission

It's so wonderful when I am asked to create wedding jewellery. So I am busy designing and making a new commission. This is for the bride, bridesmaid and flowergirl. The theme is light gold and sage green and three hair accessories are required.

I met with my client in their own home and I like to take time to get a 'feel' for the whole wedding theme. I discussed all details to ensure that I have all requirements noted. I have been busy sketching out the design and calculating stones/crystals required which I will order in today.

Need to go as I have an appoinment - will update when I get a minute - so busy!

What a week!

Last week I was informed by Insight Magazine of Birmingham that I was awarded Jewellery Designer of the year! As if that wasn't enough excitement - I was phoned last Friday to discover that I was also award the Insight Business Woman of the year! Wow - how much excitement can a girl take?

Apparently it was noted that I seem to offer such a wide range of services to my customers. I design and make jewellery but also teach jewellery making as well as one to one workshops.

It is so great to have acknowledgement from a magazine from Birmingham! I have had a photoshoot of my jewellery being worn by models and will have copyright to use these images which is great.

I have contacted local papers as well as some national papers - the Ayrshire Post is definitely interested and I will have an article in the Ayrshire Chamber of Commerce magazine 'Your Business'.

Will update as this progresses. Certainly keeping busy with all the excitement!
