Handmade jewellery using vintage and recycled materials, and semi precious gemstones.

This is my new folksy store

I am just starting out with the creation of soaps, smells, spells, potions and lotions for the new nommy neko generation. I only recently opened and slow at putting things up as I am waiting on new moulds etc. This is what is up so far.

I am open to custom jobs on the cupcakes and dinos soaps too. 

You can also find out what I am up to on my blog "To the Drawing Board" with reguards to new and interesting ideas I am proposing. 

I am hoping to open an etsy store too soon and/or build my own shop website. 

Thank you for reading :) 

With love

Have yourself a Happy Handmade Christmas!

After the enormous success of ‘We Make London’ in June, the We Make team is back with a vengeance with the forthcoming ‘We Make Christmas’

The We Make Christmas fair (Saturday 6th December 2008) kicks off the festive shopping season for Londoners seeking those illusive unique, affordable handmade gifts. Held at The American Church in London’s West End, We Make is a concept created by local designer-makers for local designer-makers: a showcase for talent, a market-place and a family day out all under one roof.

The We Make team comprises of a group of trendy young artisans, ‘doing it for themselves’. They wanted a place to show their designs so they invented one. At this second event, visitors will be given a rare chance to buy and commission work from a wide range of innovative and unique artisans.

Check out the UKHandmade Blog for the full story

There will be ‘how to make’ demonstrations, Carol Singers, and Mince Pies to be had. Not to mention

Crafting Competition

WE MAKE CHRISTMAS offers buyers the chance to buy something unique and timeless and designer / makers the chance to sell directly to buyers. Come and see us on Saturday 6th December 2008 at The American Church, Tottenham Court Road, London

FOLKSY are a brand new website offering sellers the chance to sell their handmade goods from a UK platform, and buyers the chance to buy Etsy style goodies in good old £

Together, we’re running a competition called “Folksy Angels”. This has no reference to the gaudy 70s ‘Charlie’ variety but to a new breed of metrosexual dudey doers, i.e. you. To see the competition brief in all its glory go to the flickr group Folksy Angels. If you can’t be bothered to do that and want to know the basics here they are:
  • Create a Christmas (or Hannukah or any other wintry, celebratory festival) decoration using recycled or upcycled materials (majority)
  • Submit you thing as an image on the Flickr group Folksy Angels
  • Add a description on the item about what it’s made with and why you made it
  • Entries close on the 30th November
  • We’ll start a blog post on the 1st Dec where your comment will act as your vote on the item. Voting will close at midnight on the 3rd
  • The winner gets free listings and no commission from sales on Folksy for A WHOLE YEAR starting 1st January 2009 and ending 31st
  • December 2009. In addition to this the winning entry will become part of the special Promotional Goodie bag given away as a prize at the We Make Christmas raffle.
  • The most popular photographs will also be made into Greetings Cards which will be available for sale via Folksy and at We Make Christmas.
This competition is open to everyone and anyone, so hop over to the Folksy Angels Flickr group and get crafting!

Miss Annabelle Peggle

"Miss Annabelle Peggle loves to party, she is all dressed up for a night on the town."

Peggles are handmade one of a kind peg dolls, handpainted with yarn bound arms.

Miss Annabelle Peggle comes dressed for a special occasion in her favourite party dress, she has wrapped her vintage mohair stole around her shoulders to keep her warm if the night gets chilly, and has accessorised her outfit with a lovely vintage bead necklace and a delightful matching dolly bag. Her clothes cannot be removed.

Although Miss Annabelle Peggle is quite happy to live in a dolls house she is not a toy but a OOAK collectable doll, she would make the perfect companion or mascot and would be delighted to live anywhere in the home be it on a shelf, a dressing table or even tucked in a secret place.

Miss Annabelle Peggle is for sale in my Etsy Shop:


Miss Annabelle Peggle will travel to her new home safe and secure in a gift box with lots of tissue paper.
