I don't desire world domination, nor do I want to sell hundreds of necklaces a day; I want to keep my business small enough that I can still make it all myself (not that I'm a control freak or anything!)...

But I DO want my jewellery business to continue to grow and dev...

With no formal outfits as such needed for doing my jewellery, this has certainly been the most regular part of my outfits when I'm working at home.

The cosiest, snuggliest, slouchy cardigan, it's been my very favourite garment this winter and has hardly left my back. I'...

I love packing up the little parcels to go off their new homes. I gift wrap every one, handwrite a little note on a postcard (like these fabulous ones by @katiekatiescott), and pop them in a jiffy bag to protect them on their journey.

I am a firm advocate of reusing as...

An ever-evolving part of the business, my branding gets more refined with experience and as my own sense of identity matures.

These are my current business cards which feature the basis of my branding; my initials - still quite new to me, as I got married just under 2 y...

This is my 'go-to' for a quiet spot to relax or re-level myself if I feel a bit out of sorts. It's just around the corner from where I work, on Custom House Quay. There's some steps that drop you down to water level for getting on and off your tender and it looks out t...

Here's a series as a little insight into how a sheet of Brass evolves into a hammered teardrop shape for my new pendants!

First I saw out the rough teardrop shape, filing the edges to perfect the final shape and round off edges. (And looking at the pretty brass filings,...

Honestly, not my finest work... I'd like to think that I rarely do flatlays because it doesn't work too well with my jewellery, but I've got a sneaking suspicion that that's probably my justification for not doing them cos I'm not very good at it!! 🙈

I've recently purc...

This is a tricky one. I don't have a strict routine with my jewellery as I work full time, so my jewellery fits around that really, predominantly at the weekends.

I've always found it difficult to get a good (healthy) work/life balance, as I throw myself into my jobs an...

Although I do have a perfectly good desk in the spare room where my computer is set up, has space for all my sundries, and is a space I don't have to clear every time we want to eat (or relax without looking at mounds of beads and tools and general jewellery-making cha...

So... I have a terrible confession to make. Despite having both a BA (1st Class Honour) and an MA in Photography, the product photography side of my jewellery business is my LEAST favourite part!! 😳🙈
I never liked studio photography when I was at Uni - I was more of a...
