After experimenting with sheep we decided they needed some friends. We already have some chick earrings so I’ve made a pendant to go with them.
Pigs also seem to be popular I’ve had a go at making some but they do look a wee bit sunburnt so the pink needs toning down a bit I think. I also made some cows to go with the sheep chicks and pigs.
Hopefully we’ll get them photographed and uploaded to the main site soon.
It may be a while since my last blog post however that does not mean I haven’t been busy!
I have been experimenting with Flower Canes using a millefiori technique. I’ve made two canes in a deep pink with a white daisy and a deep blue with a white daisy. I first used them to produce some really cute flowery sheep then some flower beads. I then decided to experiment with bracelets mixing my fimo beads with a mixture of assorted glass & acryllic beads I really love these and have worn one myself.
After making the flowery sheep we thought why not some psychedelic sheep? and so some truly bright and funky sheep were born made with a mix of bold colours no two legs or ears being the the same colour!
All of these should be coming to the site soon.

A strange thing to get excited about I know but I’ve just gotten my hands on a new Dremmel type tool. Oh the fun of it all. This one comes with lots of accessories and most importantly extensions so I don’t have to hold the actual machine in my hands. With this one I can just hold a smaller attachment so I can do more detailed finishing work.
I now have my sights set on some engraving bits to personalise items to make even more special jewellery.
