What'ya buying?

All these pieces I have put together are costume jewellery. Nothing precious unless stated. Some have been made with bits of broken jewellery, some made from scratch but all with the idea that these came from a world of found objects, and magic resides in everything.

Amazing what treasures you can find, one only has to look for them.

Thinking about maybe selling them for between £8-£12, any suggestions?

Procrastination....The killer

I have found myself (since starting a blog) procrastinating more and more. Is this the problem with setting yourself a goal? Do we ask too much of ourselves? Is time better spent relaxing and taking time to be content with our current situations?
My excuse,  I am so scared of failure.
I had a business once, thought I was impervious to all the criticism of my friends and peers, but it gets to you eventually. Confidence is a difficult thing to master. Hoping that the up and coming weeks are kind to me. Trying to motivate myself by looking at what my strengths and weaknesses are, difficult when the weaknesses are numerous.

So yeah, made one set of pictures up, hoping that its the start of styles to come and that someone finds my kitsch and quirky art agreeable. Teehee.

Whose Barony is this?

Well, here we go.

 I can't really say whats going to come of this blog,  for just now,  I hope to promote my designs and skills. I will be posting pics of my costume jewellery, sewing project and art. I'm going to ask you,  the lovely peoples of my world  for help.  I need a network of friends, clients and suppliers to give a chance to branch out.  I look forward to your comments as well as constructive criticism(which I take gladly, within reason teehee). 

I really hope I dont disappoint myself and that this helps me focus all positive energies to a new business venture and indeed improve on what skills I have already.

This year will be better...if we all make it better. x
