I thought I ought to explain my relative lack of posting in recent weeks. One thing after another has conspired against me, and I’ve been sorting out other things

I’ve also been finally finishing off my handmade jewellery website, and got it looking pretty much just how I want it, this has been a long journey! Pop over and take a look. The photos are by Zebra Photography, the models are Sophie (above) Emma and yours truly.

Technology has been letting me down. I bought a new laptop (which I LOVE) and trying to transfer over all my old information I have trapped on the old machine many emails, files, blog photos I had cued up and who knows what else. Why didn’t you back it up you say? I thought I had! I have a massive external drive, I made sure that I could see ALL of EVERYTHING I needed on that drive, unplugged it and dismantled the old pc set up. Except my usb drive was MIRRORING everything it could see on my old C: drive, it didn’t actually have it stored there. Nice one….

My new photo editing software has stopped working properly and I need to reinstall it ….

In the meantime I have lots of new jewellery I have designed,  made and photographed but can’t show you just yet, photo’s of France to still share and who knows what else. I am managing to get some things on here, but everything is taking too much time for the moment when I have new jewellery to focus on.

So. It’s a bit quite around here – please bear with me :)
