Florence and the (sewing) Machine

Happy New Year! The year has got off to a good start with a couple of sales already, which is not bad, post-Christmas! I've also been working on a really gorgeous tiara for a lady in the US. It's looking fab! I really don't know where the time went over the Christmas period!

As well as fulfilling those couple of orders, I have been having a bit of fun on the sewing machine (my Christmas present last year!) and made this lovely Suffolk Puff necklace, while listening to Florence Welch's latest album, 'Ceremonials' - bliss! The Suffolk Puffs are really fun to make and a great way to use up small scraps of fabric. As you can see, I popped a button in the centre of each of my puffs which looks quite funky, I think! I can see these necklaces could get a bit addictive...
