Recently I started working on some new ideas, still on my triangular theme (I really like geometric shapes and it looks cool) and so I made some new pieces in square wire instead of the round I used before and it was so much better!
It had such a better feel and gave better shape and form so here's a few images of some pieces (taken at the workbench and I must confess taking good images of my work has not been working so well lately, I don't know whether it is the light, my lack of a really good camera, my current one is ok but not great or whether it's just me but the images aren't great so please excuse the poor quality). I'm adding these to the collection I have with the DCA and hopefully just keep building this up and continuing with this design for the next little while. Also, exciting times I'm starting a new job next week in a jewellery workshop and I can't wait! I had a couple of interviews with them over the past few weeks and got a little trial in their workshop and it was great. I'll keep working on my own work in my spare time as I'm also sharing a studio with my lovely friend Holly. This weekend Ill be going home to see my family and my little nieces so there may some new photos up soon!!

My beautiful little niece is finally here!! Look at those cheeks and little squished up nose! Oh so cute and she is the spitting image of Sophie when she was born it's uncanny. So she was born on Sunday night and hats off to my lovely sister who had her in what was probably the quickest birth on record. I was so excited that I jumped on the first train to Glasgow impatiently waiting to get to meet her. Sophie has been so sweet giving her baby sister cuddles and kisses and telling everyone she's now a big sister. Oh I do love being an auntie especially with two gorgeous little nieces!:)

I am just getting ready to pop home for a day or two to see how my heavily pregnant sister is getting on and see my cute little niece but just a little update on my work so far...i've finished a few pieces for my new collection and I will get some images up in the next few days. I am very excited about this collection, even more so than the last! I hope you all like it as much as i do! :)

I ventured home last week to see my family and to help my sister move house. With her ever growing baby belly ( only three and a half weeks to go i'm so excited!!) there's only so much she can do as much as she hates to admit it but anyway I took my niece Sophie off her hands so she can get settled and my oh my did she keep me on my toes but she's such a cute little thing and she's got some good chat so I had loads of fun spending time with her and watching movies, we watched Bolt, if you've not seen it you should...it's brilliant.
Sophie is quite a little poser she loves having her photo taken and wanted one of me too (taken by my mum). So, I also visited my gran and she's got me hooked on wordsearch puzzles, it seems the granny thing to do is drink tea and do puzzles. I quite enjoyed it though and I was fully prepared to be mocked by Billy, he's always calling my granny because I love tea cups, sewing, knitting, baking, cardigans...oh how the list goes on.
Oh speaking of which I was waiting on a bus and found myself wandering into a charity shop towards the handbags and I found an amazing little brown bag, oh I just love it, I had to have it.
Isn't it just beautiful?? And it was a bargain! Oh the things you find in charity shops is amazing, I especially love looking for little tea cups and frames and of course owls...I was just talking to my friend Lizzie and she informed me of where I might add to the growing collection of owl things haha but more on this owl obsession later.
Next post will be an update about jewellery things and tonight is the opening night of the DJCAD Degree Show, can't wait to see it!!

I've joined Pinterest! After wondering what it actually was for quite some time now I decided to go on a hunt, do my research and find out what Pinterest was and what you had to do on it. So, I waited for my invite...2 whole days ( I get quite impatient when waiting for something i'm excited about) anyway as soon as I got it I started pinning and liking. For a little look at what I have so far you can see here and keep checking also because I think I might get a bit addicted to it.
