LOVE IS A FRIENDSHIP SET TO MUSIC.....













The inspiration for my bird and butterfly music brooches comes from a quote by author
Joseph Campbell - LOVE IS A FRIENDSHIP SET TO MUSIC......these words couldn't be truer.

The Sewing Woman

I just had to introduce this locket to all you keen sewers out there and also for you not so keen sewers like myself (I actually struggle to sew on a button) I have no doubt you'll still appreciate the fine detail of this beautiful postage stamp. This 1982 stamp is from Turkey and features a painting by Ibrahim Calli called "Sewing Woman". I have put the stamp on one of my vintage brass lockets to create a real signature piece.

The Bangle Bar



After successfully launching my new "Bangle Bar" six weeks ago at February's YDM, I thought I should get my act together and show them off on my blog.


Not only is there the vintage sheet music bangles which stems from my lockets but I have also used Japanese Papers, unique printed linen, exerts from the Pygmalion 1913 play book and am now experimenting with some vintage wallpaper.

I will be at the Portside Boutique Markets this Sunday for the first time and I am very excited about being part of these markets.
