Craftjuice Tuesday

I decided to get involved with the Craft Juice Tuesday from the UK Craft Forum to try and heighten the profile of crafters.

I thought I would try and do a rainbow theme as I did once before for Folksy sellers.

I am starting with red.

This handbag is made of 100% cotton fabric in a Gerber daisy design. This is listed by nancysbagsetc

This is a beautiful pendant by A touch of glass jewelry

Just look at these cute earrings by Flutterbies on Folksy

I just love stained glass!

This piece is by Designs in Stained Glass

Check back next Tuesday to see what I could find in yellow!

For details of my own pieces, please check out Jewellery My Design

I have recently started to dable in the world of chainmaille, both in sterling silver and copper.

This is a scherzo bracelet in sterling silver. I am also doing some birthstone designs so if you have a special someone (or yourself) who has a birthday coming up, why not buy something special and designed for them!

This is a Romanov design with aquamarine crystals - March birthday!

Onwards and upwards and other things

I have been doing quite well at my recent fairs - Chipping Norton on 7 November and the Benn Hall in Rugby on 8 November. I had a new range of silver beaded charm bracelets.

This one includes beads by Helen Mitchell at

I have also used beads by Tania Grey at and Caroline Cash at

The next fair I have coming up is Witney, Oxfordshire on Saturday 21 November.

Gift and Treat Fair, Chipping Norton 10/10/09

I attended this fair yesterday and it was very disappointing. I made one sale which was in the last half hour of the day. This is my worse fair experience to date. I dont know whether people were just not buying or just not buying from me.

There were lots of people milling around.

Oh well, onwards and upwards as they say.

My next fair is at Langdale Hall, Witney, Oxfordshire on Saturday 24 October 2009.

Keep beading!

I am not really an X-Factor kinda girl - more a Strictly kinda girl LOL. However I have entered a sweepstake on Bead Buddies and I have drawn Kandy Rain - so GO GIRLS!

Forgive me!

Please forgive me for I have not blogged for ages.

I have decided to give up on Etsy and Folksy as I just dont have the time to constantly stalk the forums. This I believe is how you get your name known and get traffic to your shop. There is just so much competition on there. I have reclaimed my webshop and uploaded lots of new designs, especially bracelets.

Please take a look

I will be exhibiting at 8 Gift fairs between now and the end of the year. Mostly in Witney and Chipping Norton but also Whittlebury Hall at the beginning of December.

If you are in the area, please pop along and say hi!

What else has been happening?

Hmm well someone took money from my credit card - I urge you all if you dont already do it, check your statements thoroughly.
