Pearls? Just hang on it I will explain.

I made it through to the end of term and then had a lovely run up to Christmas and Christmas Day thanks to close friends and family. Although as you can see I did do things I'm not supposed to do like sitting on the floor.

Initially I had been planning a blog about the value of creativity as a form of therapy that can help to relieve some of the difficulties and symptoms of things like depression, anxiety and stress. While this is still going to be largely or at least in part the theme o...

Well I was always told that honesty is the best policy and I have to admit in terms of blogging about Gilli's flowers it's true.

At shows I always invite people to handle my jewellery - why? Because it's the best way of them realising that it is not as fragile as it looks, or as they have assumed it is. This is due to the fact that a vital part of the process of making these pieces both at the s...

Hello and thank you for finding my website and reading this.

This will be a fairly short post, but I have decided that I can't put it off any longer and that it's time to publish my new website and on-line shop.
