If I Had A Bike: It Would So Have An Adorable Petal Basket

I am being to appreciate living near Cambridge more and more, I have to admit at first I found the city a little small, jam-packed full of tourists, and a pain in the arse to park **it is still that**, however lately over the past year since I went freelance I have really loved having such a beautiful place to recharge my batteries.

What I love is that you generally always see something pretty, whether it is the cows that roam freely in the fields near the river in the centre of town, or the traditional dress of the college stewards, or the gorgeous flowers on the market, and today I spied the most adorable flower petal embellished bike basket. I love this so much I want a bike to do the same!!!

Craft Time: Jewellery Making With QVC

A few weeks ago before the madness of London Fashion Week and my New York adventure, the lovely guys over at shopping channel QVC, invited me over for a spot of jewellery making. This isn’t my first foray into jewellery making, I am a bead whizz when it comes to making my own bracelets and necklaces, well that is when I have the time. So I was excited to hear that QVC are adding some amazing jewellery making ranges to their impressive craft section, and I completely loved making my own Steam Punk necklace.

QVC are quite big in the craft world, if you didn’t know either I don’t think we are alone, but among paper crafters this is the place to go for supplies; for jewellery makers like me who like to make pretty things to wear, you probably do what I do and negotiate auction site, eBay. Well QVC have listened to the gap in the market and have a great selection of ranges and dedicated airtime to help you start your jewellery obsession.

The new lines offer you everything from bead packs, findings, Beadalon goodies, chain kits, and even storage solutions. One of my favourites coming soon is Steam Punk, an American line of pendants, chains and components to make cute and individual pieces. It was this line that we got to test out and make our own, I have to admit I kind of went a little overboard on my necklace, mainly because I wanted all the vintage looking keys on mine!!

It was such a fun event, as well as making our own necklaces, we also got a tour around the shopping channel. Seeing the shows being filmed live was so much fun.
