Something A Little Bit Different

Predominately the items that I currently create are centred around charms and macrame jewellery. So I thought I would add something a little bit different in to my Etsy store….

Purple Wyvern Jewels On The High Street!

As of last Saturday, Purple Wyvern Jewels can be found on the high street. A selection of my jewellery and bookmark items can be found in the Community Pop Up Shop located in the High Chelmer Shopping Centre in Chelmsford, UK.

The Community Pop Up Shop, makes use of an empty retail shop whilst raising money for charity and giving local artists and crafts people an opportunity to show off their items to a wider audience. The Community Pop Up Shop was originally open back in March, and had expected to be only open for two weeks due to lease reasons, but ended up running for eight weeks, before having to close. It’s now back again in a slightly different location within the High Chelmer Shopping Centre and this time I’ve taken the opportunity to showcase some of my creations there. (I don’t have any photos of the shop to share, as I forgot to take my camera with me, so will hopefully add a picture or two when I next pop by the shop.)

Included amongst my jewellery items, are some children’s bracelets that aren’t currently available elsewhere. My little boy, has been asking for some time now for me to make some jewellery for him, which I finally got around to a little while ago. The elastic bracelet I made for him, is made from plastic beads in white, with teal and a splash of orange and yellow being in sparkly glittery colours. Here’s my little boy even being a willing model for me:

Monday Update – Event & New Items

I’ve got another event lined up for me to attend. It’s the Bastille Day Fair taking place at Hockley & Hawkwell Methodist Church in Hockley, Essex (SS5 4QY) on Saturday 14th July from 10am – 1pm.

I’m hoping that it will be a good day for all concerned, with some nice sunny weather – we can wish given how changeable the weather has been here recently. I’ll be taking along my new silver plated jewellery and bookmark items to sell at an event for the first time. Plus, I’ve developed a new item which I will also be taking to the event, and that you get to have a sneak peek at (see below).

Hair Clips!

These trefoil flower shapes come in a variety of colours ~ pink, blue, red, purple, gold/silver combination and orange are shown in the photos below. The gold/silver combination has 2 petals in gold with 1 in silver. (It’s also possible to have black, bronze or green petals which are not shown in the photos below).

Trefoil (3 Petal) Flower Snappy Hair Clip

These hair clips use a typical snappy/bendie/sleepies (depending upon what you like to call them) as the basis of the hair clip. Then I’ve utilised Chain Maille items, scale maille for the petals and chain maille rings to connect it all together. For those that don’t know, Chain Maille is the process of linking rings in patterns and was originally used as armour, but now-a-days is also used as a jewellery making technique.

These hair clips aren’t currently listed up on Etsy, but if they prove to be popular, then they’ll be added there too.

Magnetic Hematite Wrap Bracelets

Plus, last but not least, as I mentioned in last monday’s update, I’ve been adding magnetic wrap bracelets to my Etsy shop last week.

As I stated in this post last month, I am adding a range of silver plated jewellery to my shop. The first items are crystal glass beads that I’ve wire wrapped to create flower shapes and added to a chain to create these lovely unique flower pendants.

Rainbow Flourite Jewellery

I showed a sneak peek of some rainbow flourite gemstones back in April. So now you get to view the completed items that I made with these lovely colourful stones. The rainbow flourite stones have a semi-translucent nature to them and come in a variety of colours and shades from purple and green, to orange and yellow. The necklace has been created in the style of a cascade or waterfall necklace, and the bracelet is in a dangly style that creates motion when you move.

Back From Holiday

I’ve been slacking in making posts to this blog. However, that is due to spending a week away in Jersey for a summer holiday with my husband and little boy. We had a lovely time, it stayed fairly dry with quite a bit of blue sky and sunshine, although it was on the chilly side as it was windy. Although, that didn’t stop my little boy from enjoying digging on the beaches and paddling in the sea. The only downside to the holiday, was that I ended up getting a chest infection whilst we were away. I took my last antibiotic pill this morning thankfully, as those pills taste HORRIBLE! I’ve been busy catching up on all the washing that inevitably follows a long trip away, but at least the blue skies we’ve been having the past few days have been really sunny and warm, which has helped me get through the tonne of washing quicker.

Belated Tuesday Treasury

Obviously with being busy due to my holiday, I haven’t been creating any treasuries. However, I do have two to post that feature my jewellery items. The first features my golden jade necklace and the second treasury features my golden jade earrings with sunflower yellow Swarovski crystals.
