Home Sick

Here is my latest design, another charm bracelet featuring Alice in Wonderland trinkets and charms! This was a lot of fun to make and I managed to photograph and edit the pics myself so I'm quite proud. I prefer my jewellery so much more photographed on a white back ground!

I'm going home this next week end I'm missing home, my Mum and Dad and Billy Dog so I'm really looking forward to having a week end back home!!! Can't wait!!

Eye Candy!

Mark and I had a lovely day yesterday. He had a proper wonder around Manchester and looked around some unique shops. In the afternoon I had a hair appointment and then we went and had some Mexican food at Chiquitos, it was lovely. On the way back we nipped into the Urbis Museum and looked at some of the exhibitions. One of them was a Matthew Williamson exhibition displaying lots of his work. I fell in love with the chair above! It's just my style... pity i wouldn't be able to squeeze it into our apartment.
I also love this dress, its so beautiful with it's eastern feel, so much detail its unbelievable! I think I would have a few Charm bracelets to sell before I could afford to buy one though!!!

Cottage Garden

Remember the polymer clay flowers I made a few weeks ago? this is the outcome, a rather charming choker style charm necklace. It reminded me of some of the beautiful gardens you see outside the little cottages in the country side. Its available in my Etsy shop right now.

Cherished Trinkets is undergoing some quite drastic changes at the minute with lots of new ideas and a new web site in the pipe line. Mark, may partner is working on new designs as we speak. I am hoping to have a site that I will be able to update myself so that I don't have to rely on Mark so much. The result should mean that there will be more jewellery. Yay! In the meantime all my new jewellery is being uploaded to Etsy although there are still some designs on my site.

We're off to the market now to buy ingredients for a stew I'm making. Can't wait!

She sells sea shells

I first saw Laura Sparling's wonderful shell beads about a year ago and yet again fell in love! I then waited and waited for some more to come up for sale and vowed that if they did they would be mine!!! And so they were, quite a few months later. Then I got scared, because they are so beautiful I wanted to do them justice. I teamed them with some more of Laura's beads and turned them into this super long necklace. I love the result!
