It’s the most wonderful time of the year (for Christmas markets)!

Hi again! How are you? How are you coping with lockdown and are you excited that it’s almost over and Christmas is coming?!?

I know I am because I’ve got a few December markets lined up and I can’t wait!!

First up is The Makers Market at The Bombed Out in Liverpool this coming Sunday. If you’ve never been there before it’s an amazing venue in the centre of Liverpool. The market starts at 11am so if you’re around why not pop down?

If you can’t make that the following weekend I’ve got 2 markets! My first one on Saturday 12th is with Independent Street at The Drum and Monkey pub in Alderley Edge (oooo posh!) and then I’m back at one of my favs, Warrington Makers Market on Sunday 13th.

And if that’s not enough the weekend after that I’ve got my final market before Christmas and that’s also with Independent Street at The Woodlands Pub in Great Sankey, Warrington.

To say I’m excited to be back at markets is a major understatement! Much as I’ve really enjoyed my online markets (which are continuing in December – check out the front page for details) I’ve really missed meeting my customers face to face.

And now for the best bit…

I’m launching a whole new collection on 6th December!!

As you may remember I’ve been doing a jewellery making course with Cheshire School of Jewellery and now I’m releasing my new creations into the wild. I’m starting with a collection of copper rings.

I can’t wait to share these with you in person! Don’t worry if you can’t get to any of my markets in December as I hope to be putting them online next week 🙂

In the meantime why not check out what other goodies I have in my shop for that Christmas present you just can’t find anywhere else!

Caring for your skull jewellery

Caring for your skull jewellery in this recent hot weather comes with its problems. Sweat and suntan lotion can cause all manner of problems especially with copper which can tarnish when it comes into contact with lotions and potions and don’t even get me started on anti-bac. It’s obviously really important and great but doesn’t do copper any favours! But never fear I have lots of hints and tips on caring for your skull jewellery looking fab. My personal favourite and most miraculous one is using lemon and salt to clean copper!
