I'm still smack dab in the middle of the Summer school holidays, so normal routine has gone out the window, and as I'm always being told change is not necessarily a bad thing so I have been doing my best to embrace it...

So post office runs have become Pokemon go hunts - which is very addictive!

And we have discovered new places to walk including the stunning Willow Cathedral, which has a lovely feel to it, and given me lots of ideas for new wire wrapped pendants, all still in the planning and idea stages, but I'm looking forward to sharing work in progress of the projects when I get started.

One of the big new items I launched was my complete bracelet starter kit, I have been working on that for awhile now and was very excited that I managed to get everything in place to pop it on the website just before the holidays started. A fun way to learn a new skill or a fabulous kit to get you started with a new hobby.

Included with your starter kit:

Round Nose Pliers for turning loops,

Microfibre beadmat to stop the beads rolling around,

Mixed bead selection including polymer clay fruit and flower beads,

A butterfly and a fairy charm with jumprings,

Memory wire bracelet blank,

Instructions and,

Organza gift bag.

I also have refill kits if you are looking for a particular colour to make. At the moment the purple and the pink refill kits have been the most popular and I will be adding more seasonal variations later on as my halloween bracelet kits and winter themed ones proved very popular last year.

The kits are aimed from 6+ years upwards, suitable for adults as well and you don't have to worry about fiddly clasps as the memory wire just wraps around your wrist.

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.
