Atherstone Threads Fair Finds

Well the turn out to the fair was shoddy, but I managed to almost quadruple what I paid for the stall, so mustn’t grumble! I made a couple of purchases myself and thought I would share as they’re lovely!

This vintage-look purse was by Rachael Sturgess, she makes bags and purses (and mobile phone holders) from sealed woven paper and fantastic buttons, which was very different and attracted as much attention as was possible. I bought the purse for £3.50, but I would have expected to pay a little more! Handbags ranged from £8-10 and custom orders are taken. Her e-mail address is rachybaby1@blueyonder.co.uk

My other purchase was this bright flower ring for £4.50 from Sue Stanley of Suzie Bijoux, who can be e-mailed at stanley.s@btinternet.com and she shared a stand with Janet Douthwaite-Clark, with an array of different jewellery skills on display from knitted cuffs to beadwoven bracelets to more simple earrings by the pair. This was just my thing, a mixture of brass with my two favourite colours!

Threads Fashion Fair – Atherstone this Sunday

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend and you’re in the vicinity of Atherstone, why not check out the Threads Fashion Fair at the Memorial Hall? It is in aid of a teenage cancer charity, and best of all it features me and my jewellery! It is on Sunday 31st August from 10am-2pm, hope to see you there!

My first (proper) order :)

Yesterday I got my first buyer for my resin jewellery on Etsy. She chose the Hawaii necklace as a birthday present for her sister and I’ve attached an extra little pineapple charm to it for her. That’s the first £1 to The Retired Greyhound Trust too! Will have to make some more for the fashion show fair in Atherstone on 10th August. I will also be at We Make Oxford (just got in before the jewellery cut off) in November! I’m really quite excited :o)
