The top pic shows the card Toby created in Photoshop for the shop window, then you can see the window display, following that, photo's of the actual jewellery.

As usual we also did a tour of all the charity shops around Muswell Hill, Highgate and Archway where Toby collected more treasures to recycle, reuse and reinvent in his creations - watch this space!

Returned home to find a suprise present had arrived in the post, Erik Satie cd, and thought I would say a big THANK YOU here on our blog, if you want to find out who it was from click here

These are polymer clay discs i have created to use in a new collection of jewellery. I made these with various colours of hand-marbled clay, and millifiore canes, which i rolled out flat, and cut into shape. After baking, i drilled holes in them, some like buttons and others as charms.

charity bracelet

If anybody likes the look of the Knitty bracelet below, i am selling it for charity!
Just email me at and send a donation and your address and you will recieve the bracelet!
The money will go to my local hospice charity shop - Overgate Hospice!


I recently paid to go on an evening class to make a knitted wire bracelet at B'dz the local bead shop.I made the bracelet using a knitting dolly, 28 gauge pink wire, some reclaimed faux pearls, and a green glass bead. The knitted part is a bit wonky, but my technique should improve over time!
