More on Etsy


This is my latest necklace to go on my Etsy store. It has a sewing theme with my hand made fabric beads and an old wooden cotton reel encased in a soft mesh. There is an old piece of tape measure behind the frame element. I've also added a small fabric book that has fabric pages. There's a very old tiny wired globe too and some lovely old buttons.

These are hand wired embellishments that can be used in jewellery making or can be added to journals.
These are in my Etsy store.

This one is hand wired sea glass

This has soldered edges.

This is a wired vintage button

Two more hand carved stamps on Etsy.

I was the lucky winner of a wonderful pack of photos when I left a comment on Azirca's blog recently. 
Thank you so much Azirca they are beautiful. I was so inspired I decided to play around with a couple of my photos in Photoshop. 

This is the original photo.

Taken into Photoshop, cropped and added filters and a frame.

I haven't thanked the lovely ladies who attended my last decorated papers/journal workshop recently.
Two came all the way from Western Australia to attend the Creative Soul retreat and asked if I could hold a workshop for them, they were all so productive and completed their papers and journals.

Busy in class.

Caught in action.

Butter wouldn't melt in our mouths.

These are just two of the pages in a beautiful journal that Shirley, one of the students form WA made for me. It's divine with all of these lovely stitched pages, something I'll treasure.

The necklace is just beautiful, Ro. I'm loving the the cool bling. The journal class looks fabulous.

Beautiful necklace Ro, with so many lovely little treasures. Great photos and I love what you have done with them. How I envy those lucky ladies in your class, and that fabric journal is amazing.

Glad that you liked the photographs. Love the processing on your photo, it looks great.

Blimey ... that is one giant table that your students are sitting around. You almost need a GPS to navigate your way to the end! Is it in your studio?
