Jewellery workshops



Coming soon in Frome and Yeovil, I'll be running workshops to make glazed or unglazed beads, and showing techniques which can be used to make brooches, pendants or earrings. Workshops will be held on the 31st March at the Vintage Fair Arts and Crafts Cafe Yeovil, and on the 5th May at Millie Moon in Frome. Check their websites for more info.

Finished union jacks

Here are the finished Union Jack buttons that appeared as works in progress in a previous post. I have designed a moo card for them to be supplied on  - the reverse is bright pink...there are also some crowns in the pipeline but for the moment most of my finished buttons are now in Millie Moon (Frome and Wells). Check out the Etsy listing too!

Button Workshops part 2!



This session was held at the Wells Millie Moon....unfortunately 2 had to drop out last minute so there were only 2 ladies taking part, but somehow we completely filled the space....with organised chaos!







So those were the 'befores'    -  here are the 'afters'!  Starting with Shirley's buttons:






And here are Anne's buttons:






I hope they like them - I think they've turned out great! 




Button workshops at Millie Moon

The end of February and beginning of March saw the beginning of a new season of workshops for me at Millie Moon. Feb 25th's workshop was held at their Frome shop and for one of the participants it was a birthday treat so we had to make sure we stopped for cake!
Here are some of the beautiful results from that session.

Jane's buttons:







Sara's buttons:







Lynne's buttons:








Carol's buttons:





I think they all looked amazing, and each person has produced very different results from just 3 techniques.
