My curious logo.
This kitty cat.
My beautiful butterfly of languages.
My musical life as a rollercoaster.
My musical heart.
I printed these off onto high quality photo paper and trimmed them to size with a lovely crinkled edge. Did I mention before that I love my new purple cow trimmer?!
I then turned my attention to the frames for these lovely prints. I knew exactly what I wanted to do to make these, and exactly what I wanted to use.
I have two packs of Angel cards at home which I love (because they are pretty) but which I no longer use. I decided I would put them to work. Here they are in all their original glory:
The cards read hope, thankfulness, aspiration, generosity and creativity. Perfect!
So, every time you purchase a necklace from me you will be wearing an angel card with you. Your very own travelling guardian angel, wrapped up in a lovely handcrafted package of loveliness! Like a hidden little gift from me to you.
Anyhoo, I knew I needed to create a suitable backdrop for my lovely prints in order for them to really pop, so I set to work using some old manuscript and some vintage wrapping paper I found in an old chest of drawers I thrifted last November. I had been waiting and waiting for a good opportunity to use this paper - now I had that opportunity.
I chalked and rubbed and hairsprayed and trimmed until I had the perfect backdrops. I glued and trimmed and hung and dried my little creations. I punched a heart shaped hole (or rather MHI did as he has stronger thumbs than me!), threaded through my leather and ribbon chains and voila - my first jewellery collection was born!
Here are some samples of my finished products, all styled and ready to sell!

Life is a rollercoaster on a musical backdrop and wearing a black ribbon chain this time.
Oh, and at the moment each necklace comes with a FREE cabochon ring!
