We have booked our family holiday and i'm spending as much time in the garden planting sweet peas, jasminum nudiflorum and mint. I don't know much about gardening, it's all a learning curve and really nice to be out in the fresh air.
Oh that's the door, my mini green house has arrived....Yipeee!

http://pinkfriday.blogg.se/ the pics are amazing!
My gorgeous lampshade came from cha cha cha's in London's Muswell Hill where I had my jewellery studio. Megan sells the most beautiful vintage interior pieces and she has a real eye for colour and design. Check her shop out http://www.cha-cha-cha.co.uk/
The throw was given to me by my nan and the cushion came from a little shop called Cosi also In Muswell Hill.

Today was another bright and sunny day, perfect for being in the garden or out walking in the park. I did neither, instead I went to Ikea for with my friend Pip and her two kids and my little girl. We spent ages in the kids furnishings area with the kids running about like it was Challenge Anneka! We had a great time and I loved looking all the bright colours and graphic prints and everything in mini kids sizes!

This has to be one of my favourite designs so far. I made it in 2007 and sold it to Leeds City Gallery at Harrogate's British Craft Trade Fair (BCTF). It's another one-off design but I have made similar pieces with different semi-stone beads. It is made with blue amazonite beads, green enamel on silver and the flower has blue enamel with coral beads inside.
Wanna know how to do beading? In april I am doing a beading workshop with Sweet Herts sisterhood. Check out their blog!

Today I was sorting through some of my images and I found this picture of a ring I made in 2007.
It's made of oxidized silver with fresh water pearls and is a one-off piece.
I do love this ring and it has been on exhibition a few times. It was great fun to make and I will finally put it up for sale on my website later this year!
It was a beautiful sunny day for doing things like sorting and gardening with my 2yr old daughter, and I had a lovely long chat with my friend Alison Lush (also a jewellery designer). We had a good natter about websites and selling through galleries. We always conclude that it's about selling online or at craft fairs and Alison is already doing just that!
