Free Online Art Tutorials now available!

So I've finally done it!
As promised I have uploaded Parts 1 and 2 of my first Free Tutorial Series.
They can be viewed on my website:

Learn how I made this monkey:

Take some time to read the supply list underneath the video in Part 1, then you'll be ready to start!

Please be gentle on me, it's my first attempt...
Oh, and I know that a) the cam is too far away (there's nothing I can do! I've tried!) and b) that I'm always saying ''Ok'' and ''erm'' (you don't realise until you actually see yourself.)
I'm sorry! I'm going to try and NOT say these rambly things! 

Please do leave comments about it (not too rude please or there'll be tears!)

Please keep checking back because I'll be uploading more and more. 

Lots of love and Hugz

Amethyst and Flourite Healing Bracelet~now made to order!

G'Morning everyone!
How art theez today? Heehee!

Here's my new bracelet that I created last night. We all suffer from anxiety and stress these days, so I wanted something that could be worn on such occasions, something that not only looks as pretty as can be, but performs a function. This bracelet is perfect!

This bracelet has been designed to relieve anxiety, offer psychic protection, balance the nervous system, calm the mind, sooth anger and balance mood swings.

It is made of sterling silver wire which I have shaped lovingly to give a series of decorative elements which have two types of crystal chip attached. These move quite freely which helps them to connect with the skin.

Crystals work best when kept next to the skin as the skin absorbs the crystal's energies.

Amethyst, the purple crystal, is said to be the stone of tranquillity and contentment and encourages peacefulness and emotional balance; perfect for those times of anxiety or anger.

Flourite, the pale green crystal, is said to have a harmonising effect as it balances the nervous system. It is used widely in meditation as it improves focus and opens up intuition. Perfect when you feel unbalanced emotionally.

This bracelet also has a silver Carabiner clasp.

I am working on an 'Anxiety & Stress Relieving Gift Set' in which this bracelet will be included. The sets will consist of a Greetings card taken from my original painting of Chamuel, the Archangel of Harmony, the bracelet, an affirmation card to carry in a wallet or purse and an Amethyst crystal upon which to meditate.

This will soon be available in the online shop!
I will post the link when I have listed it. 
Thanks for reading.

New products for Christmas/Yuletide. Gift Tags!

(Please note: As for November 2012, all my Yuletide/Christmas products will be available from my Etsy Shop. Please CLICK HERE)

Good afternoon or evening (or even morning) to all my readers. It's really freezing in my little house today and my hands are cold (typing fast helps thaw them out!) but I've been creatin'!

Please take a look at this pack of gift tags.
There are 10 in a pack, 5 of which have the message 'Merry Yule' and 5 which have the message 'Joy'.

Each tag is decorated with sparkly glitter and has a lovely silky red thread attached for easy attachment to your gifts. 

The envelope is also hand made by me and contains the tags and protects them until you need to use them. A red ribbon is attached to keep the envelope secure. It's still a few weeks to Christmas so they can be stored safely.


My fiance and I have created this beautiful 2 layered butterfly. We painted the butterfly design and then printed it out different sizes onto gloss photo paper. 

The butterflies also look great framed. We will be showing you what it looks like in such a frame and we will offer them framed as well.
We think it's fabulous and we will be producing a variety of colour schemes.
Please email me BY CLICKING HERE to order a Butterfly card.

Please keep checking our link, or look out for the next blog post.
Keep Warm and Cosy, Blessings!

New range of Handmade Silver & Crystal Healing Jewellery

This is my first listing in the Jewellery Section of the online shop. I am really happy! I love making Jewellery, it's something so very personal and spiritual. Wearing metals and crystals from the Earth against your skin, feeling its energy, it becomes like a tatoo that you can take off and change whenever you need to....
I graduated from University of Central England as a qualified Jeweller and Silversmith, but because I went on to teach, I have never had the opportunity to really pursue this passion of mine. Now I can!
This bracelet has been designed to encourage fertility and creativity.
It is made of sterling silver wire which I have shaped lovingly to give four decorative elements. These are threaded onto four decorative and functional elements which have two types of crystal chip attached.

Crystals work best when kept next to the skin as the skin absorbs the crystal's energies.

Rose Quartz is said to be the stone of love and encourages peacefulness and emotional balance, allowing the perfect state for heightened fertility. 

Carnelian, the brown/beige crystal, is said to aid fertility by increasing inner receptivity. It also facilitates concentration and balances creativity, so is perfect for meditation of any kind, but especially when wanting to become pregnant.

This bracelet also has sterling silver fluted Rombo beads and a silver Carabiner clasp.

I am working on a 'Fertility Gift Set' in which this bracelet will be included. The sets will consist of a Greetings card taken from my original painting of the Norse Goddess of Fertility, the bracelet, an affirmation card to carry in a wallet or purse and a Chrysophrase crystal upon which to meditate, which is a wonderful aid to fertility and creativity.

I would like to post some photos of the bracelet, as my online shop only lets me post two, one of those being a mini 'thumbnail' photo that you can't really see at all........
So here is my bracelet! Expect more, and very soon! 
To place an order, please go to my online shop:
