sterling silver custard cream cufflinks

I started making these at the same time as my little custard cream and bourbon charms, and have finally found the time to finish them.

I carved the basic shape from wax, cast into silver, then etched the design onto the biscuits. → Read more

Silver nice biscuit necklace

I’ve had rather a lot of emails recently asking if I can make a Nice biscuit necklace in silver.  I’ve given them all the same answer, which is that it already exists!  Check out this lovely Nice biscuit necklace by Becca Jewellery on www.notonthehighstreet.com.

In the meantime, I’ve been working on some more shiny biscuits of my own.  Watch this space for more custard creams and bourbons…

Sterling silver roller derby skate number necklace

My first order after rejoining the world of jewellery work was one for custom roller derby skate numbers.  As they are one of my favourite things to make, this pleased me greatly.

This time it’s a number 13.  I’m actually quite surprised this is the first time I’ve done a 13, as it often seems to be the number everyone wants in roller derby leagues! → Read more

Tax-return-nightmare

Every year, I say I shall be organised.  I’ll submit my tax return way before the deadline, I say.

And have I submitted my tax return yet…?  No.  No I have not.  → Read more
