Earring Survives A Month Outside!

I made a pair of Little Gem Amethyst earrings to give to my Mum on Mother's day. 

She had been wearing them a lot but discovered that one had gone missing whilst wearing it and we couldn't find it. I made her another earring to replace it.  This was at the beginning of May.  Well, today she found the earring she lost outside whilst gardening! Amazingly, after a month in the elements, all the beads are still attached and apart from looking a little tarnished, it's survived very well. 

Quite a good (accidental) experiment to test the durability of my handmade jewellery!

Handm@de Oxford

I'm so excited to have a table at the Handm@de Craft Show at Oxford Town Hall on 29th November. Check out the Handm@de Oxford website for details of the fair.  

After my first craft fair last week, I've got plenty of ideas for the Handm@de fair. I've got lots of things to sort out so it's a good job I've got plenty of time to plan!

First Craft Fair

My first craft fair was today - the Ladyfest Crafternoon at St Peters College in Oxford. It was a lovely afternoon. There were only about a dozen craft tables so a small event but it was perfect for my first craft fair and gave me a chance to try out different things for my stall. I now have a better idea what works and what I could do differently next time. I also made some sales which was wonderful. Here's a pic of me and my craft stand.

Wedding Collection

I've recently added a wedding collection of beautiful, yet affordable, handmade jewellery to my website. Everything is priced as I would price my other jewellery. I haven't increased any prices just because it's a wedding collection and many of the items could be worn for other special occasions.

There will be stalls for local crafters - look out for Polly's Dolly. There will also be workshops and a cake sale to raise money for charity.

Really looking forward to it!
