Make 50: Week 48, 49 and 50

Here’s my newest three things- and it finishes the challenge! It’s really interesting seeing the whole year’s progress in one big mosaic (the last 14 images have been removed due to image limits!):

Failure never tasted so good….

I didn’t blog about this before because I was still in the audition stages, but I am now able to talk about it. I went for an audition for a new BBC1 show called “New Brands” after my application form was accepted. It’s sort of an after-Dragons-Den style programme where you get to pitch to […]

Make 50: Week 46

This week’s make is a submission for the Upcycle Christmas competition run by Folksy.

Make 50: Week 39 and 40

Last week I made this bracelet and additional charm as a custom order with horse hair and silver stamped plaques. These hairsticks were made this week and are now available in my Folksy shop.

Make 50: Week 38, or how to create a mess

I’ve been making textured bangles and highlighting with colour, for example these resin bangles with metallic enamel paint…   However I wanted to create some with black recesses and bought acrylic paint, thinking this would work better. It didn’t. It was messy trying to wipe off the excess paint whilst still wet so I left […]

Make 50: Week 37

I’ve started making cards! What do you think- do they work?
