After months of planning (and panicking!) my new collection officially launched yesterday on Valentine's Day. It's called 'Lumiere' and it's a collection of twenty accessories from statement headpieces, smaller hair adornments and jewellery.

Following on from last week's post on my paper clay experiments, I thought I'd show you what my first finished design looks like. My initial intention was to stick to an all-white palette and keep things simple. Two things that I struggle to do. It didn't take long before I decided that an all-white / … Continue reading Paper Clay Floral Headpiece
A little while ago, I started experimenting with different types of clay to make flowers to use in my headdresses. I already make simple little roses out of porcelain clay and I use polymer and resin clays as the main ingredients in my Colour Designs range of jewellery but I wanted to have a go … Continue reading Porcelain Flowers and Paper Clay Adventures
