In today’s blog I’m going to be giving you an over view of what I have been up to in the last week and sharing some fun moments that have been memorable to me. Plus also to show you 3 new products I am currently working on.
Firstly I have been getting ready for my craft stall in August 28th in Whittington Shropshire. I thought that it would be a good idea to order a hairdressing dolls head to showcase my hair jewellery on. Plus I thought it would be a good idea to use it to photograph some pictures of my jewellery accessories for my online shop which I’m almost due to open. I know that it has been a while coming but I have been researching all of the online shops out there in order to choose the one that is right for me. Although you can find my products to buy on here too. Please click for more information.
I ordered some hair combs which I’m planning on decorating for brides. This is one of the new products I am working on at the moment.
Another project I am working on
I received my order Friday for beautiful glass beads in the most softest pastel shades ever and they are excellent quality. They look very realistic and have a very high luster but they are faux ones so are cruelty free. I was so excited to receive them as I have some wonderful designs that I want to bring into fruition.
A new product I have been working on
I have also been getting creative for myself and making these daisy hair slides. The yellow middle has been customized to make the green yellow effect and the leaves have been lined with a pen knife to give the petal a more realistic look. They are still a work in progress as I want to thin the petals a little more so I have just ordered a pasta maker in order to do this. and then I will add them to my shop on here. It has been nice to have some free time to make some hair slides for myself too.
Yesterday was a lovely day. A customer came to my house to collect a customized order for three hair rose slides and she kindly let me photograph them in her hair which was fun. The lighting was perfect for the photographs and I’m very appreciative of her for letting me use these pictures. They are hand sculptured rose slides and the colors have been customized. You can find them here

It was also nice to see my customer playing with my materials. I gave her some vegan silk clay and some porcelain clay which is also cruelty free to get creative with and also so she could learn more about the materials I work with. Silk clay (named because of the way it feels) is soft and very malleable and really easy to work with with. As porcelain clay is much more solid and requires a lot of kneading before it is ready to be used to make anything. The latter is very sticky when you first take it out of the packet and it takes about 10 minutes to knead it before it is ready to use but it can create beautiful jewellery and ornaments too to name but a few of its uses. The smile of pleasure on my customers face told me that she was enjoying getting creative and playing with them
Afterwards we went for for a lovely walk in the lovely countryside which is on my doorstep. It was only supposed to be a short walk but it turned into over a two hour one. But it was a lovely end to the day and created many happy memories.
