A version of my Astrology Bracelet has been featured in Look Magazine this week! Hurrah and thank you to the folks over at The Shop Floor Project where you can buy it, HERE!

The shop is slowly filling up! This week I finally got my Owl Pattern Scarves back in the store, hurrah! and I have a new colour on the way too which will be so lovely for Autumn, so watch this space. (All scarves £12, HERE!)

Also just added to the store today is this new Astrology Bracelet. It has been made with a cut of very limited vintage fifties style textured disc chain along with dainty chains in gold and silver plate and a length of bright red cord, and it has different planet-like sparkling beads, a hand carved moon, feathers and a star. A perfect dreamy accessory for the darkness of winter nights... (Bracelet: £19.50, HERE!)

I will be adding some more jewellery to the shop this evening too in the way of more little lockets and a couple of old favourites...

Onestone New York

Look at these lovely jewels! Yesterday I received a highly anticipated package in the mail and inside it was a beautiful engagement ring Mark and I had got custom made for us by Etsy seller onestonenewyork. The craftsmanship really is wonderful and I thought I would help spread the Onestone love by showing you some of their gorgeous gems...All are available from the onestonenewyork Etsy shop:

Mine is in the style of this last one but made from re-claimed sterling silver with a Herkimer Diamond (gemstone) and a White Topaz accent...just lovely!

End of the Road Lights...

I almost forgot to post these pics! Last weekend me and Mark and a bunch of friends headed to Dorset's Larmer Tree Park for the End of The Road festival, the weather was so beautiful all weekend and we had a splendid time indeed. Musical highlights for me were the Dirty Projectors, Magnolia Electric Company and Richmond Fontaine (who's new album is just wonderful).

The festival is surrounded by trees which had been strung with thousands of tiny twinkling fairy lights and lanterns and made for some interesting photographs for sure (especially when I couldn't keep the camera still!). I loved the effect of the streaks of light but also there was an umbrella installation that looked as pretty and interesting in the sun as it did with the lights of the night:

The Butterfly Catchers (again!)

Hey all, I know I have posted briefly about my butterfly catcher drawings when I first made them but there is now three of them and they are available as prints in the store. They are printed with archival inks onto a matte archival paper (fade resistant for 82+ years) with a small white border for framing and look sweet on their own or they can be put together in a triptych.

One thing I love doing when I draw is creating little narratives, not in a comic book stylee, but working along a theme that hints at a story, this one being the little tale of a pair of ladies going for a day out on a nature trail and loving the prettiness so much, they wanted it for keeps instead of leaving it where it belongs...

There is also the Butterfly catcher tee too depicting Part One...Available for men and women:

It's up!

Hurrah and bring out the fanfare for the new Bonbi Forest website is up and running!!!

As you will see there is still lots to be added and we are still tweaking a few pages, but there are lots of new goodies for you to feast your eyes on including a selection of my latest tees, some new art prints and those limited edition lockets I was talking about the other day...I am very pleased with how it is all looking :)

I will be adding more over the coming week, but for now Mark and I are off to celebrate the launch with a weekend away at The End of the Road festival. It's been a hard workin' week with little sleep and I am REALLY looking forward to it! We will be back on Monday so if you have any questions about the new site and products I will respond then. Orders will ship on Tuesday...

Have a good weekend peeps, I hope you like the site!!

A peek at things to come...

I have been a little quiet on the blog again this week as we have been busy busy busy preparing the brand new Bonbi Forest site. I am hoping it will launch tomorrow (fingers crossed!) which may mean a late night tonight, but it will all be worth it in the end :)

Tomorrow's launch will see my new miniature locket collection making it's online debut and I will be rolling out new designs weekly from then on...here are a few sneak peeks of some of those little limited edition gems. I can't wait to show you the whole lot!

Another Eden

While I am thinking of all things botanical after our trip to Eden over the weekend, here is another of my most recent paintings: A precarious castle with it's own Eden-like garden...all colours and floral shapes and patterned twisting leaves and of course a lady in her carnival boat:
