I have added a new range of keyrings and bag charms to my online shop and at my display shelf at Art in the Heart in Peterborough. The price range is from £7.50 – £12.00 depending on the size.
These have all been created using my new Rolling Mill and I have used a variety of card making patterns and printed them on copper tags. I think they are fun and great gifts. As these keyrings and bag charms are small and lightweight they would be great for posting out to friends and families who live far away.
I am working on more of these keyrings and charms for the upcoming shows and events leading up to Christmas.
Yes… it is September and I mentioned the C word! Sorry! But Christmas is important for small businesses like mine. We all like receiving and giving gifts and this is that time of the year when there is a lot more gift buying happening.
Made a few Brass cuffs using my rolling mill and I am pleased to say they are looking rather good!
The first brass cuff I made, as an experiment. sold within half an hour of listing it in my online shop so I decided to make a few more. Luckily I have a local shop in Stamford that stocks brass sheet so I quickly went into town to get some. Normally I have to wait for sheet metal to be delivered from my regular supplier based in Lancashire.
So I cut 6 bracelet blanks from the brass sheet. Then I played with a few patterns and put the brass blanks through the rolling mill. They printed really well and once polished and buffed the cuffs are looking very attractive indeed. Hopefully customers think so too and buy them 🙂
Some of these cuffs are in my online shop, some at Art in the Heart in Peterborough. And one is on my wrist because I am allowed to treat myself 😉
Paper Texture Earrings made using my new Rolling Mill. I cut the copper sheet into discs and rolled it through the Mill to print the texture.
Really pleased with the result 🙂
I bought a sheet of handmade paper recently and rolled the copper discs with the paper to create these handmade paper texture earrings. I have more of this paper and will be creating more pieces of jewellery using this pattern. I am currently sawing some flower shapes from more the paper texture printed copper sheet I rolled in through the mill.
Felt Bird Bookmarks made to Order in Lincolnshire by Esha – an art collaboration between felt artist Eve Marshall & Me. Each bird is needle felted by Eve and attached to the feather shaped textured copper sheet. Great gift for book lovers.
I have added three new air-chased copper pendants to my online shop recently. Each piece has been individually hand forged using air-chasing and texturing techniques in my home studio in Stamford, Lincolnshire.
My previous air-chased pieces have all been on a waxed cotton cord. Feedback from customers and stockists is that a ready made necklace or chain is preferred to cotton cords so I will be adding more of these to the new pieces. I am going to play with a few more ideas for the chains and update existing pendant listings to offer the option of the torc necklace on pieces already in the shop.
I will of course still offer the option of waxed cotton cords or ready-made organza necklaces for anyone who would prefer those.
