  1. Well this is what all my work over the year has been for. I have had a great year and explored my craft more thoroughly. Over the years my jewellery has developed from the simple stringing of beads to the more creative aspects of jewellery making. I seem to be working between two mediums at the moment from fine bead work using teeny tiny seed beads, where my reading glasses are a most, to exploring the possibilities of using polymer clay. I am attempting to make polymer clay canes which are sometimes not THAT succesful as I am a tad impatient. If this is a medium you have considered working with, why not join the Facebook Group 52 Weekly Cane Projects ? This group feature a cane each week and you can join in or not, it is up to you.

    Here are some canes I made

    I have also been exploring using the polymer clay canes in different projects, apart from jewellery and you can now find ballpoint pens on the website. I have also been making some polymer clay cuffs and bracelets and necklaces

    In addition to finding me on Facebook, you can also find me on Twitter and Google+ If you have bought jewellery from me, I would appreciate a review on Google plus

  2. I have been inspired today by attending a Business Gateway session on intermediate social media. I found the course really interesting and informative. I have started working on my website already by adding this blog to it! I have had a blog with blogspot for sometime and must admit I am very guilty for not updating it. I am aware that not all blog posts need to be about my makes and sometimes it is good to share news and information from other blogs, Facebook, Twitter etc. I have started this blog with the best intentions, a bit like a new school year, when you used to get a new journal. Best handwriting for a whole year!

    If you are a small business and have just started I can highly recommend Business Gateway as they have a variety of courses from book keeping, SEO and of course social media. I check on their courses all the time and will definitely be attending more
