Sketchbook Inspiration

I have been taking my press coverage to the market with me every Sunday.  At the moment it's in a boring old file which doesn't really represent me or my work so I had the idea of putting it into more of a sketchbook type thing, showing my sketches of initial design ideas, along with my styled photographs and the press piece.  It's just an idea at the moment and I don't know when I'll have the time to do it but here are some examples to get inspired by.

I love multimedia sketchbooks that are full of different textures layered on top of each other, I might make one with lots different papers and stitch them all together.  

 I hope this post reads ok as I have been popping in and out of the room writing it for the last couple of hours.  We have a room to rent in our shared flat so have had people coming over to view it all evening.

If anyone keeps sketchbooks or journals and has images online I would love to see them, and I promise that when I do get around to doing my own I will post pictures.
Good night.xxx

Irish Tatler and Telegraph Magazine - Amazing!

Carnival in Irish Tatler August issue 2010

Bow Bracelet in Telegraph Magazine 17th July 2010

I only have one of the above bracelets left (it's the silver version) until 2-3 weeks time, they went like hotcakes over the weekend when this piece of press came out, so if you're interested get in quick!

I'm about to spend the rest of the afternoon, and probably evening, replenishing my jewellery stocks to take to the market on Sunday. Tomorrow morning will be spent making up packaging supplies and as my boyfriend has a half day at his work I will try and get everything done in time to enjoy the afternoon with him.

So I will say a day early....Have a good weekend everyone!!

Clare Owen saved my bloggers block

Oh dear it's been a while hasn't it.  I've had big bloggers block lately as all I seem to do at the moment is business related and I'm sure that can get boring for you guys.  One thing I'm always on the look out for though is beautiful illustrations.  I like sketchy kinds of drawings where you can see every line the artist has put down, I think it gives the work emotion and when the subject is of a whimsical nature I am in love!

This is the work of Clare Owen who enjoys cats, tea, ukulele and all things French.  I found her via her Flickr.

I wish this chest of drawers were mine.

Isn't she amazing, I could dedicate a whole wall to her.  She is based here in the UK and has an etsy shop and a blog.

Have a lovely afternoon/morning/evening, I might be back later to boast about myself again with a couple more press pieces.  Till then....xxx

Another shameless piece of promotion

I never want this blog to become all about me and my work but there is just some stuff I can't leave out, such as press coverage, right?  This feature on the Giraffe necklace is from the fashion wish list over at Sky Showbiz.

I'm off to Push PR's (the lovely ladies who look after all my press) Christmas in July press day in a bit.  I'm looking forward to seeing other client's  new collections and showing mine (which will be available on the website soon) .  I am a bit nervous too though, just because I'm not sure what to expect and I don't know if I'll be any good at 'networking'.  I'll let you know how it goes.

In the Press

Giraffe Necklace in Wedding August/September 2010

 Large Leaf Pendant in Easy Living August 2010

Hello, I hope you all had a fun and sun-filled weekend.  I have just received these two great pieces of press coverage from Wedding and Easy Living magazines (that Leaf Pendant is proving to be very popular, I almost had two girls fighting over it at the market yesterday).  How exciting, best Monday yet!
