9 days to Christmas

16 Dec

From ribbons to bows, to buttons to felt, I have made a variety of brooches for Original Minnie.  I use a combination of new, old, vintage, and reclaimed materials.

All Original Minnie jewellery comes in a gift/presentation box, ready for giving.

I have been busy making some specially commissioned necklaces recently, but I still have various syles left in the SHOP here.

 

Take a look and let me know if there are any designs you would like making again in different colours or lengths.

In the last few months I have expanded my Jewellery and Earring range to include the new Button studs (with sterling silver studs and butterfly backs), plus these new Beaded Button drop earrings also made from sterling silver.

You can find a range of Original Minnie earrings available in my Folksy SHOP, or contact me if you would like a pair making in a special colour.

How exciting – I’ve been featured for the first time on a Folksy Friday!

For those of you who don’t know, Folksy Friday’s are blogs that Folksy peeps post on Fridays (hence the name!), showcasing handcrafted items found on Folksy, with a theme of their choice.

I’ve been featured on the Folksy blog FF, with summer themed items chosen by this weeks special guest – Stars and Scars.  Thanks for including my “Oh I do like to be beside…” necklace in your Summer Lovin’ collection!


Many Folksy shop owners post Folksy Fridays every week – have a look on the Folksy Forums each week to find more…

TREASURE TROVE IN NOTTINGHAM

Just thought I would share this little ‘secret’ with you…

Design Circus finds

Design Circus finds

Way back, before Christmas I found this lovely Pop-Up-Shop in West Bridgford (Nottingham), filled with handmade gifts, accessories, cards, bags and trinkets, and decided to treat myself to some goodies including this yummy cupcake keyring (which I’m still using today to adorn my keys) made by Molly’s Mum, and these sew cute little badges made by Lily Be Funky.

The only sad news was that it was a Pop-Up-Shop, due to close after Christmas, but I’ve just found out that its still open!  Run by the makers that stock it, the shop is now a permanent fixture.  Why not pop along if you’re nearby… or check out their new blog.

Support handmade, and UK makers!
