Folksy Sunday Showcase

OK so I've managed to Folksy Friday and Sunday Showcase (something of a record for me)

This week I've decided to showcase mamma made uk / Trish Evans. I absolutely love these little booties, perfect for the freezing weather today too. I look forward to seeing more things if they're as beautiful as them!

Good Luck with your first Folksy Sale! Kate

New Rainbow Bracelet Listing

This is my newest chunky little listing on Folksy:

Folksy Friday Peacock

As I've just finished my first peacock inspired piece of jewellery I thought I'd do a Folksy Friday about all things Peacock Feathery...

Clockwork Peacock Pendant by Miss Pollys Handmade Jewellery

Beautiful Pendant by Owl Loves Panda

Peacock Pendant by Larios

First Feedback

I've received my first feedback- It was from the two winners of my competition but it was lovely to get someone's thoughts on what I make. Very nice to hear positive things.

Facebook feedback

All my jewellery is now currently with my lovely cousin who is photographing it for me. I hope it means that I suddenly get an order! We're still housebound because of the lurgy so it means I should have lots of time to make more things. Never quite works like that though

Peacock Cuff - Finished

This is my latest project now finished. I've counted over 30 different colour beads, of which almost all are Swarovski crystals. I don't think I could make this again even if I wanted to as some of the beads are no longer available to buy! I love it. It weighs a lot too
