Piercing Saw Frames

Treated myself to a couple of piercing saw frames

More piercing saw frames or New Toys as I prefer to call them! πŸ˜€

Treated myself to a couple of piercing saw frames, 4″ & 6″ deep.

My trusty saw is 2.5″ deep which is great for smaller things but if I want to work on a big sheet without waste then it fails.

I enjoy sawing so it is a good idea to have the right tools for the job.

If anyone would like to buy saws like this I am happy to source them for you. Please do contact me via this website or on Instagram.

CORSAGE Brooches in Colourful Enamelled Copper

Corsage Brooches

I have added a new selection of enamelled Corsage Brooches to my online shop today.

The Corsage series of brooches evolved as I played with a few ideas on a piece of heavier gauge sheet copper left over from another project. I loved the results I got on the first brooch and thought this design needed to be made again.

Since I made the first one in summer 2021, which sold at its first outing at Peterborough Artists Open Studios, the Corsage design has been really popular with customers. It has sold well both online and at craft shows.

Various sizes, colours & designs available.

Earwires on all my earrings are sterling silver. If you want another material to be used instead please do ask me for prices. I am fairly certain I can make / procure ear-wires in other metals.
