To celebrate my website being up and running again, I'm running a number of Special Offers & Free Postage on all items purchased on my website this Autumn.

You'll find a much larger range on my website than in my Etsy shop, including a special section with jewellery made with Amber.

Postage is to all major countries and has already been adjusted for your convenience.

Time Now For.......Mushrooms & Blackberries!

Ok, not together ... & maybe not where you are, but I'm in Scotland & the time is right for both. So, if you feel adventurous you can try living off the land. While I'm feeling ok with picking blackberries, I'm not too sure with mushrooms. I'm no expert with mushrooms, my mother was. I like spotting them and then checking whether they're poisnos or not in a book. So, here are a few picks for you to see whether you can spot which ones are edible and which ones should not even be touched.

Made in Scotland ... with love

My newest treasury is all about items made in Scotland & by members of the team McEtsy. To find items by this team, simply type 'mcetsy' in the search on Etsy or check out our thread in the Forums>Teams. I'm really happy to see the number of creative people from Scotland being represented on Etsy increasing & hope they all do well!

After long, long months...... new-look website is finally, almost, here! Well, it will be fully developed/filled-in in about a week or so. In the meantime, you can already order from it, register to review products, buy in UK £Sterling. & just in case you're more comfortable with Euros, US or Canadian Dollars - simply choose your currency from the drop down menu & it will show you how much it is in your currency.

Postage is only £2 per order for both international and domestic orders & I ship to all major countries in Europe, plus USA, Canada, Australia etc. Shop policies can currently be found here:

& it won't be just jewellery that I will be selling here - all my destash will be listed & all my handcrafted copper/silver findings too, so, if you're interested in making jewellery yourself, have a look - you might find something interesting!

Here's a snap of my new shop:

Lets take a break the time this treasury went up I need one! I've been going crazy-red-eyed as there's been a lot of work to do lately & so my thought went wondering about what kind of a break I'd like.

Sometimes some people know exactly what they like and how they like it, but sometimes there are times when you do know what you like but it takes some time to gradually find a way to express it. The latter is more relevant to my adventures in jewellery making. Over the last few years there have been quite a few influences, and over time I plan to develop them into separate collections. All of them are expressions of what I like personally, so there are no favourites! However, there are a few major ones & I will attempt to introduce you to them personally.

Heather Obsession

As the weeks pass the bright purples of first heather flowers change to softer pinks, whites to different shades and tones of purple, creating a multitude of colours - this was the inspiration for this treasury.

New Adventure on Art Fire

Ok, so I finally took the plunge and joined Art Fire. And shortly afterwards was pleasantly surprised when I saw my SWIRL ME necklace on the FP! I'm beginning to like Art Fire, although it might be somewhat biased :D

Here are my two shops:

Fascination with Perfection

The perfection in an item crafted by hand comes not from exact repetition of given form as in items made by machines, but from something much more subtle and hard to describe. Yet, when that perfection is achieved, you can see it clearly. For me, the items in this treasury are simply perfect!

Going mad for accessories - in the forest

Whether it's the lure of the forest walks or the chill in the air that heralds the approach of autumn I don't know, sometimes brain works in mysterious ways, but when the treasury slot appeared, it all just came together!
