ooOOOeeeEEEeeoooOOOooo!

It’s been a spooky night up in Hebden Bridge this evening!

Lily’s pumpkin (aged 4)

Both of my children (ages 7 and 4) have been very reluctant to go trick or treating so far, but we made the front room all spooky, bought some treats and waited for the hoards of Hebden Bridge zombies, vampires, ghouls, witches and ghosties to pop round.

A full compliment of pumpkins, tea lights, spooky spiders and glittery bats awaited them.

Two pumpkins enabled us to made four separate faces – why shouldn’t the people on the inside be treated to a scary face too?!

Robert’s pumpkin (aged 7)

A great time was had by all, and all our treats are well and truly gone – no tricks in sight this year, thankfully!

Enjoy the rest of your halloween, whatever you get up to :)

What’s that behind you?

 Uncle Si’s scary pumpkin!

Show and tell ~ a commission

Posted on: Thursday, October 28, 2010

Want some jewellery with purple amethyst, black and silver? My client wanted something unique and handmade to compliment her glamorous vintage outfit and update it for the Christmas Party this year.

Not a lover of shiny silver, and liking things to have a vintage-style, we decided that I should oxidize and polish the earrings and charm bracelet to give a retro effect.

Mary chose a large baroque silver freshwater pearl for the earrings with this deco-inspired hand-shaped ear wires. The charm bracelet features faceted amethyst, smaller freshwater pearls and Swarovski Jet rondelles.

A great example of how working closely with a client can really ensure you end up with something that really shows who you are and enhances your style.

Email me if you have a custom handmade jewellery request, I’m always ready to create a one of a kind item for you.
