Accessory Icons (Part 1)

Ive been drawn to start thinking about things like marketing, the type of woman that would wear my jewellery and things like that. Being quite a nostalgic person naturally I was led to my first fsahion influence... 

Blossom was my style icon a long time ago..utterly fearless with her accessories and responsible for many, many fashion faux pas of mine :-)

Samantha Jones from Satc slightly more grown up and fabulous :-) definitely a 'Miss Fluff' gal...

Hmm I wonder what other types of women would be brave enough to wear my pieces..? :-)

Hexagon Experiments

Ive been playing around with the idea of hexagons for a new series of pieces for the shop after visiting the stage in New York's Centrl Park.
Whilst taking photos of the hexagons carved out of the stone ceiling I noticed all the little intricacies and of course Im a sucker for detail..

Ive tsrtaed experimenting with shape and pattern using some paper stencils. I had no idea how much measuring would be involved and anyone that knows me knows that me and numbers are a disaster!
I've started to cut some mock-ups using cheap crappy leather but Im not sure it's going to work or look good..after all that!
But it's a process and I still have a few mnore things to try before I send this particular idea to the sin bin.
