Progress report

Our deadline is looming, we have to have all our jewellery made for the shop by the end of this month. Toby has been working SO hard, he has made a beautiful range mixing sterling silver with our most precious treasures. We will take photographs of it all to put on our "Attrills" blog soon. We have also been making jewellery with hemp, buttons, and felt but have so much left to do that we wont be posting here for a while, need to get our heads down and work!!!
We found a knitting shop in Hebden Bridge that sells old buttons individually for around £1.50 each, we have been searching the net and ordering from ebay, and this coming week we will be going on a treasure hunt around antique fairs and flea markets to find more.
Regarding presentation, we have found white boxes in various sizes for the Attrills range. Laurence, the other Attrill ! (my husband and Toby's father) has printed little sticky labels for us and also put together a most complicated label that I designed which is in 4 layers, of acetate, paper and card all fixed together with an eyelet. He came home from work one evening this week and we presented him with 80 x 4 layers, to cut up and put together by hand, which he did, finally eating his evening meal at 11.30pm, thanks Laurence!
I have also been sorting out the website with my friend Yvonne. Toby and I have told her how we want it to look, design, layout, colours, images etc and she is building it, she has been very patient with our, especially my, fussyness! it is almost finished now and should be ready in about a week, will keep you posted.
