Making Jewellery


I love making jewellery, especially with Swarovski Crystals but the latest trent is embroidering with Shibori Silk which is made in Egypt and then hand dyed and pleated. Below is one I made last week and the other was finished the other day.

Re: Making Jewellery


Thank you Pamela

It started as a hobby years ago, sold a few to begin with and now sell more, mostly by word of mouth, [Sys edit: Contains pet forums], Twitter and now I have a new website. Saying all that, it is still a hobby foremost which I thoroughly enjoy.

Re: Making Jewellery


Tippi, your creations are simply stunning. You are very very talented. It must be extremely delicate work.How do you keep your cats away? Mine are always all over me when I try to sit down and knit or do a jigsaw.

Re: Making Jewellery


Hi Dinky

Thank you. Don't think I am talented but I do have a lot of patience, need it because I unpick several times to get the design to sit right. My cats never bother me whilst I am beading, they are mostly asleep or outside, they are getting on. Raffles is 10 and Rosie is 9, they were very lively when we first got them, age as slowed them down.
