I am super excited to have been asked to run a jewellery making workshop for the Southbank Center in London on December 10th. I will be speaking a bit about what I have been up to so far and how I design and make my Doodllery. Everyone will then get to make customisable character necklace, brooch and pair of earrings.
I have neglected my blog for too long now and feel it needs some desperate care and attention. The last year has been jam packed with doodling, jewellery making, handbag designing, a few fantastic holidays and acquiring a new brother for my cat Lily called Bert.
I have also been working on Little Moose – the online shop that I run with my husband, James. We sell lots of lovely jewellery and accessories from quirky brands as well as independent designers. We also sell lots of the bags that I have designed as well as our own jewellery range.
From now on I’ll keep my blog updated with all of my upcoming events and creativity!
Oh and Happy halloween..booooo.
I am excited to tell you about a new feature that we are starting at Little Moose. As a way to get people involved in drawing and doodling we are starting our own Doodle Club. Every Monday we will be announcing a title for everyone to interpret and create things in their own way. It doesn’t matter how good you are and whether you take it in a silly or serious way we would love to see your creations. Once you have your doodle you can take a photograph of it and upload it to your Facebook or Twitter and tag Little Moose in it. You’ll need to ‘like’ Little Moose on Facebook to tag us and if you’re on Twitter, use the hashtag #lmdoodleclub or ‘@’ reply Little Moose in so we can find it.
Don’t forget to spread the word and help get as many people doodling as you can each week!
I’ve had a busy few months including designing lots of lovely things, taking part in a business BBC television series and travelling to Malaysia to get married! One of the things I have been doing is attending a silver-smithing class and this has resulted in me being able to turn some of my little characters into silver jewellery which is really exciting.
So the first designs I have made are a cloud, star and monster called Goon sterling silver little necklaces. As well as this I have designed 3 new Doodllery characters – a fox, owl and cat which are handmade out of acrylic. You can of course buy any of these from my online shop Little Moose.
I attended the Makers Boutique fair in Brighton recently and had a lovely day. Luckily the sun was shining and so was able to have my stall outside which was lovely. I was pleased to make lots of doodllery sales and happy to see that my brand new cards, necklaces and earrings were well received too! Hope all of the other makers enjoyed the day too.
All of my new designs will be available to buy on Little Moose very soon.
