Hearts, embroidery, clouds and dolls

I have had a great inspirational month. I finally got my stuff back from the laser cutters and I am very pleased. Take a look. They will be on sale for the first time tomorrow at Stonehaven Castle.

Stonehaven Castle, Shongweni

I will be there selling my wares, amongst others. I'm sure it will be a great day out. They are also doing a 3-course lunch which sounds delicious. So if you fancy a day out, come to the Stonehaven Castle.

Kilt Pin

The brief was to make a kilt pin for a 60th birthday pressie. He is a ex-South African, he likes guitars, rugby and SA. Oh and it has to be a little different to you traditional kilt pin. After lots of communication this is what it looked like.

40 = Ruby

My friend Jess (the one that does my illustration for Icon Africa) wanted to get her parents a 40th wedding anniversary pressie. Forty years is a Ruby. The result was a beautifully simple salt spoon with a ruby set at the end. The back has her parents names and the date stamped on the back. (Sorry still trying to master my camera, so you don't get the true colour of the stone which is actually a pinky red).

A little sparkle with black

I made these plain bands last month. They are really simple but look really good on the finger. You can mix and match the square and round bands. There are two with a little bit of black sparkle in the form of 4pt black diamonds. Very sweet.
