Christmas Inspiration

We're getting into the Christmas spirit now having had Christmas craft fairs to attend every week and less than 3 weeks to go until the big day! If you're looking for a little inspiration for the lady who has everything, why not purchase something unique and handmade?
Here are just a few ideas from our Christmas collection of sparkly stocking fillers...

Swarovski Crystal Christmas Tree Earrings...

A sophisticated new colourway - jet and crystal
All that is gold, does not glitter.. but these do!
 Lit up like a Christmas Tree!
You don't get more classic Christmas than red and green!
 One of our most popular - we've named this one Mistletoe!

How about a stunning silver hand-knitted brooch featuring Swarovski Crystals
Or a sparkling star pendant? (We also have snowflakes!) Available in clear or iridescent clear (as pictured)

Just a few ideas to inspire you. Available to purchase at www.etsy.com/shop/inspiredscilly (payment by paypal or credit/debit card) or purchase direc…

Christmas Markets

We're going to be busy this season so here's a list of all the Christmas Craft Markets we will be attending this year:

Just Makers Christmas Craft Exhibition (7th-23rd November)

A two-week event housed in the beautiful Bath House at RHS Harlow Carr in Harrogate. In honour of our garden-themed location, we will be bringing along our fabulous floral rings and some sparkly Christmas tree earrings. As the name suggests, this event plays host to a range of high quality, handmade items from local makers. Support handmade and grab some original gifts for Christmas.

Also, don't forget that RHS Harlow Carr are hosting a Free Day Friday on 7th November giving visitors the chance to get in to the gardens for FREE! More details here: http://bit.ly/1xSzV5I

York Christmas Fair (22nd-23rd November)

Another green-fingered venue, York Christmas Fair at Skelton Garden Centre on Shipton Road made its seasonal debut last year. With a cafe for refreshments (including delicious hog roasts!), a gr…

Floral Fancies

Summer may be over but we haven't left behind the floral theme that we embraced earlier this year thanks to these gorgeous vintage style flower rings. They were a big hit at the Spring Just Makers Fair at Harlow Carr in Harrogate and we're bringing them back for Autumn/Winter as we think they'd make a really sweet stocking filler!

With Downton Abbey back on our screens, the trend for vintage is still big and we love the vintage vibe that these rings simply exude!

You can now purchase our delicious dahlia flower rings online at this link: http://etsy.me/1uGiqn0 or if you're more of a rose lady, choose from our ravishing rose rings at http://etsy.me/1EyhZSl . You can select from an assortment of colours to suit everyone. We think this gorgeous grey is going to be a big hit for Winter!


And if you like these or are looking for some unique gifts for Christmas, head on over to The Bath House at RHS Harlow Carr in Harrogate from November 7th to November 23rd where we'll b…

Inspired Scilly Jewellery..in Scilly!

Anyone who knows me well will tell you how much I adore the Isles of Scilly ever since my first family holiday to those remote islands as a daydreaming teenager. It is little wonder that such a magical place caught my imagination and has drawn me back, year after year. So now that I've fulfilled my ambition to become a penniless 'something creative', what could possibly be better than to finally have my work on sale at one of the islands' best loved gift shops, The Bulb Shop on the tiny island of St Agnes.


Once a stable for milking cows, The Bulb Shop later evolved to include a cold store for cooling precious scented narcissi blooms prior to packing for market, before becoming the treasure trove of crafts and creations that it is today. The Bulb Shop has something for everyone, including a variety of jewellery to suit all tastes and styles, from stunning silver to brightly coloured beach plastic and now, I'm delighted to say, my own quirky mix of Swarovski sparkle…

Spring

I'm currently busy preparing for the Just Makers Craft Fair at RHS Harlow Carr which starts this Friday 2nd May and runs until 1st June. It will be the first year I've exhibited my work at this month long fair and I'm really excited to be a part of it. Pop in to The Old Bath House at the gardens if you're visiting as it promises to be a great event. In the meantime, here are some playful, colourful pieces that I've been making...
