Press release: PennyDog Jewellery launches a collection for homes

PennyDog can now adorn your home with bold coasters and soap dishesFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

PennyDog Jewellery, which has a rapidly growing customer base within the field of resin jewellery, has further added to the range of products available by now offering a homeware range, currently incorporating paperweights, coasters and soap dishes.

Paperweights retail at £26 and encapsulate objects from nature, butterflies, insects and dandelion seedheads. As they depend on the availability of specimens, these are strictly limited edition, with only one or two of the same style ever made.

The retail price for a pack of two coasters is £15 and they can be custom made to fit the customer’s décor. They are made from thick polyester resin and fabric, tied elegantly with grosgrain ribbon and gift card.

The soap dish sets can also be customised, and retail for £15. They are displayed in a white gift box with ribbon detailing, and include a handmade soap from Tamworth soapmaker Sue Gardner, trading as Soapy Chica.
 
Each item is cast in the mould, sanded and polished to a professional finish, and takes at least 3 days to make from start to finish.

Homewares from PennyDog are currently available to purchase on http://www.penny-dog.co.uk and will also include trinket dishes and tealight holders in the near future. As always, £1 from each item sold is donated to the Retired Greyhound Trust.

My new workroom

I start moving on Friday, which is very exciting, and then I can start work on setting up Rothley Contemporary Crafts. I was toying with the name “Rothley Atelier” but the OH said it wasn’t obvious what the company was all about, so I kept is simple.

I can’t wait to have a bigger space, at the moment my supplies have spilled out of my craft room, onto the landing and take up a third of the living room in boxes and bags now, and I feel like such a tramp- I can’t wait til I have a place for everything (and have everything in it’s plac e as the saying goes).

So as I can’t start laying protective flooring or anything yet, I thought I would share a couple of items I have bought or plan to buy to fit my raspberry and pistachio theme- handmade of course! I was going to start buying furniture today, but since my card was cloned in the cash machine (boo!) I can’t physically buy anything yet 😦
