I particularly like the Y Tie concept, coming soon to Emi♥  and the above charm bracelet which is only £5. All of the products sold there are Fair Trade. Go have a look 🙂

Resin Moulds now available!

When I first started in resin jewellery making, I was amazed that the flexible type moulds couldn’t be bought here in the UK. It’s also one of the main keyword searches that people use when coming to my website- but it was something I didn’t offer. The best- and also best known- mould “brand” is Resin Obsession, run by Cindy Carter in the United States. Her moulds are great and I’ve been using them almost from the very start. Her range of moulds is so thorough and ideal for all resin jewellery (and ornament) makers, but of course airmail isn’t as fast as we’d like- we buy moulds and we want them straightaway!

So the solution. Cindy has very kindly allowed me to be her UK supplier, so I can now confirm that a small range of moulds are available to buy in my shop! Depending on the success I may be stocking a larger range in the near future- and all moulds are delivered by first class post in the UK so you will receive them 1-2 days after ordering- hurrah!

Lilliecup Green

I’ve been wanting to blog about this place for a little while now, but my cameraphone is completely useless at communicating with any other device, so I had to go back and take some pictures with an actual camera last weekend.

Lilliecup Green aims to stock 90% handmade (Gina- the lady who runs it- also makes her own soft furnishings, which may come in useful when we move!) and is based at Breedon Priory, Breedon-on-the-Hill, Leicestershire in a couple of conservatories next to the Garden Centre.

I seem to be having some success there already and my goods have only been on display for a few weeks, which is great news. She also stocks buttons and accessories from Incy Wincy Stitches, though we’ve yet to bump into each other there accidentally 🙂

It’s quite a small shop that sells everything from balloons to curtains, money boxes to soaps, and a new room is in development (and nearly finished!) which will showcase creative painting techniques for the home, with a secondary building located across the car park which holds painted furniture.

There are interesting collectable stalls on the site every weekend, as well as a knitting shop (which also stocks my knitting needles), old fashioned sweet shop and other little independent retailers dotted around. Please go for a visit, it’s a nice afternoon out, but please note thatr most shops are closed Monday and Tuesday.

Kathleen and Lily’s

Today I popped into Kathleen and Lily’s on Mansfield Road, Nottingham. They have recently started stocking some of my retro range and I’m happy to say they’ve sold two necklaces already and seem very pleased with what they’ve been sent. One of my pieces was even on a mannequin in the window which was unexpected 🙂
