Something a little Bit Different



My New Collection of Wire Wrapped Delights

I have been working on this new collection since last week and am in the process of listing them all in my shop today. All my newletter subscribers should all be opening my very first newsletter with a little treat inside!

The idea for these rings came from a friend who wanted a special commission for his wife. It has been a long long time since I worked with wire so I was a bit nervous at first. Lots of scraps of wire now sit in a pile on my desk from designs that didn't quite work, but that is sometimes the way!

I am really enjoying working with my semi precious stones and sculpting designs which compliment my other jewellery, plus I'm getting new ideas for earrings, so it is win, win, win for me. I am working my way along stedily to reach 100 listings and Tweeting as I go. I have found so many new interesting folks to follow. So I'm balancing my time between making, twitter, the forums and listing.

I ot some exciting news the other day, one of the galleries who I sell to is taking my jewellery to the Scottish Homes and Interiors Show! I'm hoping to head along and meet up with them and maybe make some new contacts. I aim to find another 2 new wholesale contacts before the end of September. Have you read this great article by Plumeadore? It's a must if you fancy giving it a try.
