I started making jewellery because I loved it and still do today - there is so much all around us to inspire new designs and there are so many beads to try! So when my old, static 'business' website became such a bore to maintain I switched to the blog; much more me I thought, and much more 'pleasure'.

Somehow, I got distracted and instead of updating you here, I was busy making jewellery and sharing all the news on the Facebook page.
