Through the Looking Glass Bracelet

My Alice Jewellery is always so popular and one of my biggest sellers is the Alice Brooch Pin, so I wanted to produce another Jewellery piece to compliment the pin and here it is "Through the Looking Glass" bracelet.
The bracelet contains nine circular pendants each holding a different Alice image from Alice herself to the White Rabbit and the Mad Hatter at his Tea Party.  The bracelet will be available at The Fairytale Fair on 9th March, however, it will also be available on my website in the next two to three weeks, please email me if you wish to reserve a bracelet in advance as my jewellery pieces usually sell out quite quickly.

Fairytale Fever!

With only a few weeks to go now until the Fairytale Fair on 9th March, I am in my element creating for this whimsical Fair.  Here are some examples of the Lavender Cushions I have designed especially with this wonderful Fair in mind.  Each cushion is created digitally first and then printed onto cotton, I then select a whimsical, vintage style fabric as the backing for the cushion and once stitched I fill the cushion to the brim with high quality French Lavender.  I first made one of these cushions for myself three years ago using this lovely Lavender from France, and three years on it is still scenting my clothes draws with a lovely hint of Lavender.  These would make fabulous Gifts for Mothers Day!
If you are interested in learning more about the up coming Fairytale Fair, nr Brighton, then please visit their blog here, or Facebook page here.... I hope to see you there!
