This is a first for me and I am very excited!

Back in December, last year, I was contacted by someone from Interweave Publications about possibly contributing to their special edition, once a year issue: 101 Bracelets, Necklaces and Earrings 2012. (Also available in digital format, here.)

I have never submitted to magazines before and this was all right before Christmas, a very busy time, so I was hesitant. But, I took the plunge and I was accepted!

My project is in the Classic Blues category, page 101. The Periwinkle Peyote Bracelet.

And the finished product.

I have to thank everyone at 101 Bracelets, Necklaces and Earrings 2012 for inviting me to take part in this special issue!

Thank you so, SO much!




I’m in a magazine!

January 12, 2012

Well, not me. But, my earrings are!

You may remember this post? Well, Confetti Magazine (Ireland’s most popular wedding mag) decided to run the shoot in their new Spring 2012 issue!

Very exciting! It’s a trip to be able to walk into a shop and pick up a magazine with your work in it. A first for me.

I have to, of course, thank Lisa, the wonderful photographer responsible for this shoot. Without her none of this would have been possible.

Thank you, Lisa, Confetti Mag and all the other wonderful Etsy sellers who took part!

Studio Peek

December 6, 2010

I was recently asked for a few pics of my studio space for a blog post over at Etsy Ireland on juggling life and craft. Which then led to an article over on Where People Create, a blog featuring the work spaces of artists and crafters.

I LOVE to take peeks into other peoples work spaces, I find it very inspiring!

If you have pics of your own work space please do share in the comments!

Happy Customer, Happy Designer

I’m dying.

No, not really dying.  I am ecstatic!

First, a little background information.

I came up with these Lattice Ribbon Bracelets a while ago. I adored them, still do, but I was very unsure of how they would be received by people. You see, these bracelets do not have clasps. What? Yes. You simply tie the ends of the ribbons together.

Now, bracelets in general I think require some assistance to put on and take off. Yes I know of “bracelet buddies” and other little contraptions that are supposed to help, but it’s likely you will have to ask someone to assist you.  Even with toggle clasps, the easiest of clasps to maneuvre, in my opinion.  SO, I just wasn’t sure if people would take to the whole tying thing.

Am I rambling?


So, I recently sold one of these Lattice Ribbon Bracelets to a lovely gal by the name of Amy, who informed me that she would be wearing it on the day of her wedding as an accent in her favourite colour. Love it!

I was thrilled to hear that. I mean I think all jewelry designers love to be a part of peoples weddings. It’s a very special thing. But, I was also thrilled to know that people were not put off by “no clasp bracelets”.

So I sent it off to Amy, wished her well and thanked her very much.

Then today… she sent me this.

Is Amy not the most beautiful bride ever?

She completely made my day with this. I am so thrilled to have been able to be a part of her special day.

AND I am so happy to know that she was pleased with her purchase from me. Thank you very, very much Amy!

Congratulations to you and your new hubby!

Treasured Thursday: Thinking Spring

February 18, 2010

I think it’s safe to say, I’ve had enough of Winter.

This beautiful treasury from Amy of Ponder & Stitch ( ) has me yearning for Spring even more!

I think it has a wonderful chance of seeing the front page, but myself and everyone included would surely appreciate your clicks and comments. :)

Beautiful job, Amy! Thank you so much for including my work.
