About Me

My photo
One day I decided to turn a hot water cylinder in to a pair of tiny star shaped earrings.... and I haven't stopped since! My jewellery branches out in many different directions at once, metals, fabrics, plastic all get bundled together to create very different and eyecatching pieces

Banksy Vs Bristol Museum

Had an amazing weekend, a friend of mine works for Banksy and got us in to the private view at the Banksy Vs Bristol Museum exhibition on Friday night. It was so good, his work was amazing and I have never been to a private view where I was more interested in the art than the free booze. I even went back the next day to see some of it again.

Happy Accident

My hubby accidently fell over one of my paintings and put his foot through the canvas. Luckily I didn't think much of the painting anyway so he wasn't in too much trouble! I am unable to throw anything away so obviously I've made it in to earrings!! They are all totally unique and bursting with colour and texture, I'm really pleased with them.

Homage to Frida

I'm doing the 365 project on Flickr and this was my photo for today. A homage to Frida Kahlo's Self Portrait with Cropped Hair. I didn't fancy chopping all my hair off (been there, done that, looked bloody awful) so my floor is strewn with ribbons which is quite fitting to my craft. I have started making fabric stuff again as they sell well at the fayres and I'm too skint to buy silver at the moment.

Fayre enough

It's that time of year again when we roll out the ol' market stall and get selling in the fresh air! As usual it'll a jumble of my jewellery, my little sisters Foundlings Jewellery, Big Sis' artwork and Mum's fab kids nits!
First event is the summer opening of Penzance's amazing art deco lido. Should be great with lots of stalls, music and food. Loads more festivals and fayres are lined up throughout the summer... keep you posted!

Spiritual cleanse

There's nothing more satisfying than melting down jewellery given to you by an old boyfriend! These are recycled copper pipe and silver taken from a bangle given to me by a Scottish boyfriend a long, long time ago ... he actually gave me two but I discovered, after blow torching the other one for what seemed like a week, was plated not real silver... tight git!
