"I'm not bossy, I just have better ideas than you"

Continuing on with the pin-up theme:

Handmade glass beads, cultivated pearls, glass pearls, swarovski crystals

and yes, I did manage to get out for a surf today and managed to get sunburnt.

" I kiss better than I cook"

I really like the old 1950's pin up posters.
They're so kitch, retro and fabulous and I wanted to make a necklace out of one of the images.


So I did.


I wrote onto the glass tile: "I kiss better than I cook".


Mixed it in with glass beads, faux pearls and swarovski crystals.


I am setting up a shop via facebook called payvment so in November when I am back in civilisation I am ready to ship them out, anywhere in the world.

A tribute to the mermaids

Some say that mermaids don't exist.
Others say that they do.
I love the idea of them and they were the inspiration for my last necklace.



Triple strand with Pearls, swarovski crystals, (because mermaids love all that glitters) and tibetan silver, (just a fancy word for saying it is mostly metal),  with a mermaid print glass dome.



Fit for a mermaid.

Love is all around

"Love Actually" is one of my favourite feel-good movies of all times and that is where part of the inspiration came for my last necklace.
" When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls were messages of hate, -they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky suspicion....love actually is all around". The prime minister in "Love Actually".
 So before I left London I printed up a sheet with "Love is all around" on it. Then I glued it onto another sheet, glued on Swarovski Crystals, pierced the paper and off I went.


It was a fun experiment that I am quite happy with. 

 Might try and do some ear-rings next in matching style. NOT to be worn together off course. 
Seeing that it is Easter, spring time, it is easy to see that Love is actually all around, if we only take a moment out of our busy days to look around for it, we'll see it everywhere.
Happy Easter!
