My First Exhibition of CatDesignz Treasures Jewellery

The more eagle eyed among you will have noticed my new Etsy Store CatDesignz Treasures has appeared in the right hand side bar. I’m making and selling genuine gemstone jewellery.

At the moment there is not a great deal of stock filling the shelves there at Etsy as its all sat here in Halifax waiting to break free!

And I have my first exhibition Thursday when I take some pieces into a local employer to show to their staff at lunchtime.

This poster has appeared in their staffroom and various other places around the building!

The pieces you can see featured on the poster are made from sunny Citrine, amazing  Tanzanite nuggets, Freshwater Pearls, Rose Quartz and 925 Sterling Silver and they are all available to purchase.

I am so excited to get their feedback on my work and who knows, maybe even sell a piece or two.  I’ll let you know how I get on!

In the meantime I also have a new Facebook page CatDesignz Treasures

iNSD Mini Blog Hop with my Creative Team & a Freebie

Happy iNSD to all you happy scrappers!

Today I have a mini blog hop for you and you can collect lots of goodies from me and my Creative Team along the way.

They are all featuring my latest kit, new in store today at MyMemories called Spring Comes Softly.

Spring Comes Softly

Spring Comes Softly

Spring is very late here in Halifax this year after the harshest of winters – we still have daffodils in bloom and its May!  I keep looking at the cherry trees (we are blessed with 6 in our garden) and they are trying so hard but probably won’t be in bloom for another 5 or 6 days yet.

So in the meantime I have a soft and pretty kit to show you along with some matching wordart and beautiful clusters and papers (yes, modest went out the window as I am so delighted with the way these kits came together!)
