This blog is where I will write at length about topics of relevance to my design work, production processes and personal collections. You are free to comment on these posts as I welcome the chance to engage in a dialogue with my customers.

 

Blog Archive

I’ve been blogging since 2008. You can read about the early development of my creative style and the things that have inspired me over the years in my blog.

As there are years worth of posts over at my old blog, I have only transferred the last 12 months or so to this website. If you wish to take a trip down my memory lane you can visit the blog archive and view these older posts here: BLOG ARCHIVES

Do you use Instagram? If so please join me there as it's my new favoured online platform for connecting with customers. I try to post daily with inspirations, jewelry I wear or pictures from home that might interest you all and give you a bit of insight into what goes...

I am in the midst of organising my studio, going through boxes, opening drawers and being ruthless about holding onto things I have not used for years. I've listed a whole lot of jewellery making supplies, old beads and jewellery in my Destash shop. What does 'destash' mean? It generally...

Welcome to 2016. I've started the new year with a bout of jewellery making that has been a long time coming. Not that I've neglected my creative work, it's just that I have been creating things other than jewellery. I've told you already about my new range of stamps and digital...

The first of many downloadable products from Empire Line Stamps - antique style and grunge style gift tags. Designed using images from my collection of antique prints, collaged with old letters, antique sheet music and other lovelies. Print and use as many times as you like for gifts, special messages, pretty note...

Launching Empire Line Stamps SHOP FACEBOOK For the past few months I've been working diligently behind the scenes, neglecting my jewellery work to get my new creative venture ready. Countless hours have gone into my first range of Art Stamps and digital download images. Every second has been a labour of love. More so than anything...

For many years I have been collecting old documents, books and prints. These elements form a perfect basis for designs such as on fabrics, tee shirts and wall art. For some time I've had ideas about how to work these lovely images into jewellery designs - and it has been a...

I think I've managed to move all my subscribers over to the new site. So if you are receiving this email you have been successfully moved! I thought I would take this opportunity to show a few pieces I made this weekend. It was a long weekend so I made the...

I've been a bit quiet on the blogging front lately. The reason for this is that I have been working behind the scenes to make a brand new website. I've wanted for some time to make my contact with the outside world a bit more of what I want it...

It's been two months since we moved into our new home. We could not have designed a better home for us if we had tried. At this point in time I'd be happy to never leave this house. I have a huge studio in which to design all my creations,...

As I pack up my home once again in readiness to move into my new home (I WILL stay there for much longer) I have been going through old files, updating my digital existence onto a new hard drive and reminiscing about the many hundreds of designs I have made...
