This weeks Wednesday is wish is a weird one. I’ve literally only just stumbled across this jewellery designer, as I was researching various materials to make some jewellery with . I’ve been feeling really fidgety recently, and a little lost on the creative front, so I am just pondering on the world of jewellery making (any help and suggestions would be lovely!). And voila, this lady’s work caught my eye.
It’s the imagination of it that I really admire, I think you either love this work or hate it. It’s slightly creepy, but at the same time playful which is the main appeal for me! The workman ship is very clearly high on these pieces too, altogether I think they are fascinating and wonderful!

Its my Mothers birthday tomorrow, and so this evening i have wrapped her present up. At the moment I’m really going through a presentation is everything stage, but also on a ‘I don’t want to spend money on wrapping paper stage’. On first impressions the two don’t co-exist very well, but really I’m finding present wrapping can be a whole lot more fun when done on a zero budget! OK so today i have cheated a little and have used part of the present as decoration in the form of a vintage brooch, but the ribbon and paper i have found in drawers of junk here! I’m pretty sure most of you guys will have loads of treats around the house perfect for wrapping and beautifying! I’m going to make it my task to try and be more inventive with my wrapping ideas and hopefully spend very little in the process and recycle a few bits and bobs. This is a very humble example of what can be done and honestly not very inventive and verging on the garish side, but practice makes perfect right?! so maybe in a few months time i will be a crafting, thrifty, wrapping queen!
Oh and my dog 5 year old Mr Bingley wanted a bit of the wrapping action, but soon got tired and fell asleep on a pile of my stuff. Don’t you agree polka dots and florals quite suit him!
Happy mothers day! this year my presents for mum consisted of local charity shop finds, the first being a beautiful stoneware scottish jug, and the second a 1960’s hand crochet dress. I am so happy as the dress fitted her beautifully! I finnshed the jug off with some carnations and a ribbon, and the present with some pretty parrot wrapping paper, and ribbon and a button. Being slightly green fingered, i also plan to take a few cuttings from the carnations, my how thrifty!
I will also take this as an opportunity to introduce my 5 year old cavalier king charles, Mr Bingley, he showed his own affections for mum in his own little way.
Hope all you mothers out there have had a great day! x
