ToSouk Sold Earrings

OOooooo I am so happy that a pair of my earrings has sold from my shop over on ToSouk.

Here is a photograph of what the customer liked however they wanted them to be made with sterling silver hooks rather than earring posts.
I created the custom order and have now been sent out - I hope that you like them as much as I enjoyed making them :-) .

I love it when someone takes a gander around my on-line shops and actually buys something. It is so nice to know that there are people who like the handmade items I make and want them for themselves or as gifts for other people. If you would like a pair then you can buy these from either my Folksy or ToSouk shops.

Anyway I am going to have a lovely cup of Earl Grey tea and start drawing for my college course. For those of you who don't know, a little while ago I decided to give up my chemistry  job to learn more jewellery making skills on a 2 year foundation degree. I am now on unit three which is based on the science museum of which we need to design and make a product for in the house.... what it is going to be I have absolutely no idea but i would like it to be some how related to jewellery so maybe some sort of trinket? I just know that I don't want to make a cushion :-)

I will add some photographs of the things I have been up to at college at some point. Please remind me if I forget as I am a little scatterbrained at the moment :-)

So I have finally got an account on Pinterest... (Search for StephieStephie) .... and oh whay can I say? I have one hundred percent fell in love with the site! It is so easy to use especially with the 'Pin It' tab that you add to the top of your internet browser.

So in true fashion I have Pinned almost everything from lights to animals, to places to food, to clothing to craft and so on and so forth. Below are a few examplas of the lovely things I have found....

 Go to Pinterest and add StephieStephie to your followers to keep up to date with the things I find.

For now I am going to go and get ready and go into town to have a gander, peer into the window of my favourite jewellery shop and have a cup of tea :-)

I am currently waiting to get a Pinterest account verification. This site seems really great and I cannot wait to get started.

I have had a quick look through the photographs posted on other peoples pages and they are great.

Here are some of the ones that i liked...

I really loved the vivid colours within this beautiful landscape photograph.... hmmmm it would be nice to have a print to put up in my house! Also I have always had a bit of a thing for hanging plants so these would do the trick.

I do not think that I have ever seen a refrigerator that large. You could definitely feed the 5000 if that was full of food!

These beautiful pictures made in the tops of coffee are great. I don't like drinking the stuff but maybe this created on top of a cup of hot chocolate would be awesome!

Dresses i just love, there is nothing more to be said. Books also are my weakness. I would love a book shelf like this. It reminds me of the work of Colin Thompson the illustrator/author. If you get chance Google him.

This octagonal space is fantastic. How great would it be to have a space like this in your garden... oh how the other half live... one day... maybe one day!

Looking on this site has been great. I cannot wait to get an account and start pinning photos to my space.

Hope you likes these as much as I did!

Bathing A Bunny

As some of you may know my husband and I have a gorgeous little lion-head bunny rabbit named Patch.

Well she was starting to get a bit dirty and smelly so we decided to give her a bath...

Normally she is a big fluff ball but looks so thin here. She was so funny especially when we were drying her. She is now laying in front of the fire getting dry and combing her fur.

Cute pincushion tutorial

It has been one of those weeks this week and I am really starting to feel tired. However I was this pincushion based on the film Up and thought it most definately deserved a mention...

For the instructions of how to make it just click here and it should take you to the website.

I have also been adding a few more items to my folksy shop like these lovelies ready for Valentines Day...

Red crystal and faux pearl earrings!
Talking of which I really should get making something for my other half.... hmmmm.... what to make him?

Oh no what have I done? ...

Well I have just joined twitter and have no idea how to use it! Hmmm...... maybe i should go and read what on earth you do with it.... I should probably already know being a twenty something person but hey I don't, oh well there is time to learn. Does anyone else feel like this about twitter?

On another note I have added some more items in my folksy shop  StephieStephie that has made me feel better...

Also had a fab day out visiting friends and had both lunch and dinner out. All in all a great day.


p.s. I love comments!

Happy New Year 2012

Happy New Year

I hope that everyone has had a lovely Christmas and you are now ready to face 2012 head on and do all those things you have been meaning to do.

I have been busy making earrings and other things for my Folksy shop StephieStephie. Admittedly I let things go a bit by the way side but I am hoping to set it up afresh and get things moving.

This has been partly due to me starting a FdA in Jewellery and Applied Arts back in September and the amount of work involved just seemed to engulf me hence certain things got put to one side. For 2012 I have decided that this can be no more so here we go...

I have made these beautiful earrings just before Christmas for StephieStephie shop on Folksy.

Rain drops

They earrings are on Sterling Silver 925 ear wire hooks with beautiful glass beads suspended below.

More are to follow very soon.

Take care

Stephie :-)
