WOYWW - 29/05/2013

Pin It What's on my workdesk this week?  Well I came home from work tonight to find a package from the wonderful shop The Rainbowgirl.  In it was 50 hand dyed silk cocoons!!!


I plan to make some more jewellery from them, they are all lovely summery colours though the photo doesn't do them justice!!  There are 10 of each of the following colours - black, yellow, orange, turquoise and purple.

Hope you have enjoyed seeing what is on my workdesk this week - be sure to check out the other work desks this week and help to celebrate 4 years of WOYWW by popping over to Julia's blog.

New techniques...

Pin It
For my Handmade Monday post I thought I would show you the two new techniques I've been working recently, viking knit and kumihimo braiding.  I'll be listing some of these items in my Etsy shop soon and I'm also looking to get a Folksy shop up and running too.  I'm also looking to expand my range of men's jewellery to include more than just cufflinks and I think these 2 techniques will be perfect for doing just that!!

WOYWW - 22/05/2013

Pin It So I haven't blogged for a while and needed something to kick start me and that was seeing a WOYWW email in my inbox today....

As you can see I have lots of unfinished things on the go at the moment!!  Hopefully I'll actually get some things finished this week but not this evening as I've got a meeting to go to in a minute followed by a visit to the cinema to see Iron Man 3 - got to love Orange Wednesdays!!!  (For those not in the UK Orange Wednesday is a offer where one of the mobile phone companies offers 2 cinema tickets for the price of 1 with a text message code)

Don't forget to check out some of the other workdesk pictures!!  You can find the list here!

Sorry I haven't posted much lately I've been busy being ill and going on holiday!!  Hopefully now that spring seems to have finally arrived the bugs will go into hiding and I can have a illness free summer :-)

Anyway just because I can I have decided to run a giveaway over on my Facebook page!!  To win one of my shaggy chainmaille bracelets in the colour of your choice follow this link...
