A hedgehog and a wedding song...

Here's a little sketch I concocted last night...I've never drawn hedgehogs before but I quite like this little guy:

It's been out a little while now but I have yet to share this wonderful song by Anaïs Mitchell featuring Justin Vernon (He of Bon Iver fame...). It's called 'Wedding Song' and is about part of the Ancient Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice where they are discussing who is going to pay for their wedding, she being pragmatic and he dreamily looking to the magic of nature...I love it and you can listen to it for free by clicking here: Wedding Song

A thing for specimens...

I am in the midst of putting lots of new jewels in the store - as promised - and had a little break for a blog read and a Lemsip (feeling a little peaky today you see...) when I came across these gorgeous hand crocheted butterfly 'specimens' from Oeuf, an online store selling all kinds of cuteness for kids (via Creature Comforts).

So lovely:

Those jewels I've been putting in the shop? See and shop them HERE with more on the way very, very soon....

Yes, they really are coming soon this time!

I know I have been waffling on about this little lot for a while now, but amongst a few snags and tweaks hither and thither I finally have things ready (I really, really do this time!). They will be in the shop soon! Maybe a few tonight and a few tomorrow, (plus others not pictured). Yes, very soon...

Visions in Ice

I just came across these spectacular images of ice by Douglas Capron on the visual treasure trove that is 'But Does it Float?' (which isn't as a good friend of mine once asked, about floaters...)

These are just beautiful, kind of like space and the deepest sea all at the same time. I love how nature so often replicates itself in different areas...

Stones and Stardust

This week folks, this week! I will be launching my new jewellery collection, Stones and Stardust!

Here is a peek at two of the new pieces:

They will be in the shop to launch the newness on Monday Edited to add: They are in the shop NOW and are both very limited edition, I hope you like them! See and shop them HERE and HERE!

Does anyone remember these bracelets I made last year that were featured in Grazia? Well they all sold out and I was unable to get any more of the vintage disc chain...but last week, lo and behold I found a length of this beauteous chain and nabbed it. So until they sell out again, Feather Nest Bracelets are back in stock! See and shop HERE!

I hope everyone is having a splendid weekend with lots of fun and merriment!

Happy Easter!

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter break...the extra long weekend is always a welcome one around here, Mark and I have a HUGE basket of little eggs and bunnies that were gifted to us over the weekend to munch through.

I am still deciding whether to eat them all at once to remove all unhealthy treats from the house as quickly as possible and resume my pre-wedding health kick, or to spread them out over the coming weeks...knowing my sweet tooth and my lack of discipline when it comes to sweets and treats I will probably be partaking in the former of the two options...ha!

Anyways, while I have been consuming lots of chocs I have also been working on my new jewellery collection which I am enjoying making very much...above is a peek of things to come. I am very excited about it! All will be revealed soon...
