Jewellery

Handmade jewellery 


 For the longest time I can remember, I absolutely love making jewellery. Right from making paper beads at brownies, creating button jewellery with my friends to constantly making jewellery with my mum… I adore seeing how much joy can come from creating something you can wear.

Some of my necklaces are for sale locally at Stafford Cottage in Minchinhampton or online at my etsy shop. 

I like the freedom of mixing colours to match an exact item, like this beautiful print from @lilyandmeclothing. That spring /summer colour palette is so pretty. I love the pops of yellow and turquoise! And these beautiful Adini summer prints …with colours like these, it’s easy to get inspired!  

Hand mixing that purple was so much fun! I had blackberry stained hands for a good while! I love the subtle tone changes you can create when mixing colours yourself. There are no limits! 

This was a new design trial – I’ve lived in it so far 🙂 

This was a recent Commission – to match a floral print skirt for a wedding. 

I relish the challenge of matching colours to make a bespoke piece. I’m always happy to chat through an idea – drop me an email! 

You can find my ready to ship jewellery here – I hope you have a wonderful day!

nappy bags

Nappy Bags and beyond! 

One of my favourite makes are my nappy bags.
These gorgeous cow herd bags are hot off the sewing machine tonight
(Just in time to raise awareness of the cows being released onto Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons on Saturday 13th of May – steady driving lovely locals!)
Each one is different and is Handmade with love, and I can honestly say, It has made life with a Toddler much easier for us as a family!
I only choose fabrics that make me squeak with happiness and that I could see myself using.
The idea for these little bags of happiness came to me after lugging a huge bag to cater to my gorgeous brand new baby boy’s every need.
This inevitably meant that every trip to the bathroom meant carrying (what felt like) the kitchen sink!
I made a few prototypes for us to use, big enough for larger nappies/pants and wipes.
I then gave some to friends and family.
Everyone was very happy with them and we couldn’t believe how much easier the toilet trips were!

My tiny little Newborn boy is now a 3 year old string bean – something I cant quite believe! He has an active role in helping his mama with all things crafting. He just loves setting up things for Flatlays and he chooses EVERY single button that ends up on any of my nappy bags.
He is a stickler for perfection and a great quality controller 🙂

So if you are looking for a little Baby Shower, welcome to the world, or just something to make life as a new mama easier, I can fully recommend one of these bags.
Obviously, the bags can be used for many other things… we use them for spare clothes, small holiday activity packs, Mummy’s crochet work in progress project bags, keeping track of diaries and important paperwork to name but a few alternative uses. (See below!)
I am always adding them to my Etsy shop.
