New jewellery – quite a lot of it….

What a week…

the naturalist

(ceramics – Scorched Earth)

well, ten days, really.

out walking 1

(ceramic droppers – Scorched Earth; ceramic birds – Happy Fish Things)

What has been happening?

big top 1

(ceramic droppers – Scorched Earth; ceramic tubes – Golem Studios)

Well, Dexy got sick. He had a dreadful ear infection, which required a general anaesthetic so it could be flushed out.

indigo and iolite 1

(ceramic droppers – Scorched Earth; patinated hoops – Grubbi)

So that was all quite stressful.


(polymer flower and bird – Tree Wings Studio)

Then I went to an open house at Smitten Beads, which was great but far more ‘active’ than I’m used to. That’ll teach me to be such a homebody.  I picked up a stack of new good stuff and met a load of folk I’d only ever ‘met’ online.

winged things 2

(ceramic leaves – Scorched Earth; lampwork beads – Earthshine)

I’d just about recovered when my laptop died. The hard drive went – just went. Nothing there, gone, kaput. Had I backed up all my images and software?

graffiti 1

Had I hell.

into the trees

 (ceramic house – Elukka; enamel leaf – Gardanne)

I’ll spare you the details – because they’re long and not very interesting – but I did manage to get the hard drive and software replaced without paying for them.

ocean side

(ceramic round – Slate Studio)

Or breaking the law.


So, thank heavens for that!

one daisy

(lampwork beads – Earthshine)

But, oh my, I don’t like being without a laptop. I kept getting that phantom limb thing where I’d turn to check something on it then find it wasn’t there.

Of course, all this turmoil has prevented me posting new designs here. As you can see, there are quite a number.  Some have been listed, and some sold, but if there’s anything here that catches your eye that you can’t find in my Etsy shop, do get in touch.

holding light

 (ceramic spiral coin – Gaea; beaded bead – Malin de Koning; clasp – Amanda Davie)

So, apologies for another image heavy post…

peacock shards 1

 (enamel matchsticks – Numinosity)

 …although I’m quite relieved that I have all these images recorded on my blog because they’re no longer on my computer.

delft 2

 (ceramic lentil – Golem Studios; lampwork discs – Helen Chalmers)

ombre sky

 (ceramic lentil – Golem Studios)

I’m getting busy and posting all this now because it’s market day tomorrow.


sun into the evening

I’ll be stationed outside the George Hotel, in Frome town centre, from 10am till 3pm.

beach bird

(driftwood bead – Nature Scavenger; ceramic urchin – Blueberribeads)

Can you tell that I’ve yet to get to grips with my new version of Photoshop?!

catchy monkey

(copper pendant – Thea Elements)

tango teal

(driftwood bead – Nature Scavenger; lampwork beads – Glittering Prize, Helen Chalmers)

my bracelet

(ceramic leaf – Bo Hulley; lampwork beads – Glass Bead Art)

This last bracelet ended up being really small. So, regrettably, I’ve had to keep it for myself.   Anyway, that’s the lot. Ciao for now.
