Just a Card
I support the Just a Card Campaign which is urging people to literally do just that, even buying one card from an independent shop or designer can make a big difference in keeping them in business. See more on their Facebook Twitter or Instagram pages.
** new supplier news ** I am thrilled to now have my jewellery stocked in Sage, 4 Broad Street, Stirling. A beautiful gift shop which is a treasure trove of homewares, antiques and stunning linen clothes and Indian textiles. You can find my Brocante, Deco and cabochon ranges there. A must visit if in the beautiful city of Stirling.
It has been the longest, coldest winter ever and breaking through into Spring with new ideas and inspiration isn’t far away, I’ve been nestled up at my workspace creating textured artworks and trying to make resin jewellery which incorporates the same vibe. My first market of the year was at The Stables, Culross which has a brilliant energising buzz about the place so I’m happy with feedback on my new pieces! Here are some new works:
Aside from chalk painting furniture (for my home not to sell!) and suffering the neck-breaking consequences, I’ve been sourcing new ideas and inspiration. I have a brand new range of vintage watch jewellery which I’m still currently in the process of tinkering about with. Here are some of my new pieces, available to buy on Etsy:
New Supplier news: from December this year, I am excited to say my jewellery and cards can be purchased in My Cherry Pie, 301 High Street, Kirkcaldy. The owner and maker of beautiful enamel copper jewellery Gail, has just taken the plunge and opened her beautiful new shop up in the Merchants Quarter end of the High Street. You can also find 14 other local designers and artists work here. Wishing Gail all the best for her retail future!
New work for Kirkcaldy Galleries Shop this festive season includes newly presented Deco and Brocante ranges. I’m really inspired by the 1920s to 1930s at the moment, although my love affair with that period stretches back into childhood when I used to be obsessed with Harold Lloyd and documentaries about silent film. The flapper style isn’t always my favourite, there was a whole movement that wasn’t sequinned and flapping that is still as inspirational!
Vintage Quine news 2017
I am delighted to announce a range of my vintage floral French leverback earrings will be stocked in the new location of Newburgh’s finest vintage shop- Vintage Quine. Lisa is relocating her gorgeous shop this month to my very own favourite (and many others) village Falkland. Watch this space for more news on this exciting new venture.
new work for spring 2017
Every greetings card I make is made by hand putting together scrapbook style pages and cut lace, Victorian imagery and pattern papers. I stock my cards at Birchwood Gallery near St. Andrews and Planet Soap, Crieff.
