Dance, dance, dance!

I'm currently working on a "proper" collection. It will be around 12 pieces created along the theme of the ballet (something that is a constant fascination to me), particularly the Sugar Plum fairy. In fact, the collection is going to be called Sugar Plum. It will be available in about a week though my new website and my Folksy shop. In the meantime, just to whet your appetite, here are some pictures that I have been using as inspiration...

Originally uploaded by alibalijewellery I love bird-themed items, so of course this cute pendant in the I Love Folksy.com Flickr group caught my eye. It's by Ali Bali jewellery and I would like one as an early Christmas present please...

I'm currently working on building my very own website. Hopefully the frontpage will look something like this...


We Love Folksy Flickr Finds

The We Love Folksy.com Flickr group is a great showcase for all the wonderful talent that can be found on Folksy. Here are some recent favourites:

This pretty necklace reminds me of an ice cream sundae. It is available from Chiyobex.

I love this cheeky squirrel necklace by Aleximo

This pretty necklace is made by casting a vintage button in clay by the incredibly talented Nifty Thrifty

This vintage-looking soap by Soapy Chica would look lovely in my new bathroom. I originally found a duck-egg blue version in the Flickr group pool, but this pink would look even better.
