I love these black vinyls from Papermania - they look like silhouettes. I have used aperture card blanks with bird themed paper in these cards. They have an austere look of Victoriana about them.

My interview has gone live on the Mosaic Tree blog today. Maggie and Annie from Mosaic Tree have published a series of interviews with craftspeople in Somerset. Today's post looks at the work of the Musgrove family and their willowwork and the local gems in Hidden Somerset. To read my interview click here, or to read the whole series go to http://www.mosaictree.blogspot.com/.
Well it's my last day on the Carousel today. The idea is that if you have a shop, you can replace my slot on the Carousel by buying anything from my Folksy shop. You then get one week's ride on it! They have had 507 sales on it so far!

It's lovely to see all the blossom out on the trees, and it is inspiring me to make a lot of pastel coloured jewellery.

I had a commission from a lovely lady at work for two Swarovski necklaces and two pairs of earrings to match. All the findings are sterling silver. This heart is heliotrope, and the other is peridot. Apologies about the quality of the photographs, too impatient to get the light right!

And finally, an elongated acrylic heart bracelet with a heart toggle. Too late for Valentines Day, but not too late to show your mother that you love her!
I am also considering doing a blog giveaway, but I need a few more followers first.

This week has been very quiet so far, and because I have a jewellery party planned for the 17th March, I have been able to make lots of jewellery! I am going to try and make at least one thing every day from now until the 17th! And I have made a good start with the earrings (Previous post) and this necklace made of huge mint glass beads and equally large rectangular chain.
Sixteen more things to make...
