Another month has flown past and the sun came out making me think about all the gorgeous flowers that are starting to bloom in my garden and on my way to the post office with your orders. Nature and animals have always played a big part in influencing my designs and when I saw this fabulous black and white paw print fabric I knew I had to create something special with it.
And what better way to show you than with the fantastic black cat earrings and pendants - a black dog version is also available from my Animal jewellery section or you can search for them in the earring and necklace categories.
The top photo is a mixture of work in progress and finshed flower styles. And black and white is always on trend so perfect for Spring, Summer or Winter.
As is typical of me I get an idea and then come up with multiple different styles, which all become my favourite making it almost impossible for me to choose one style and just make that! You can help and let me know your favourite in the comments section below or on my Instagram or Facebook pages where I post sneak peeks and more work in progress pictures.
I have been thinking of launching a hair accessory line for quite a long time now, especially since I have amassed quite a bit of modern and vintage fabrics! This allows me to utilise the skills I learnt on my fashion design degree and incorporate my love of Japanese culture. I absolutely adore the wonderful Kanzashi flower hair accessories that are worn by Geisha in Japan. I love how they wear different ones depending on the time of year or special festivals taking place which has lead to me researching, creating and making my own interpretation of this stunning traditional craft. One of the styles I'm working on lets me add my handmade and gemstone beads so I am very excited to bring these to life so you can have one of your very own.
The other photo is of myself wearing my current favourite Kanzashi hair clip, a red oriental patterned fabric and bead dangles, which totally lifts my hairstyle and outfit and makes me feel good and super Kawaii!
The cat earrings and pendants are a firm favourite with customers and I always get wonderful feedback about them from happy customers which makes my day not only that the items bring you joy but that you kindly take the time to let me know, as a small independant business feedback really does help and make a difference.
