New brooches, new tiles


I finally managed to collect a new batch of ceramic transfer brooches today! They need to be finished off and photographed, but I do hope to have them in my shop soon.


These were such fun to do - adding bits of pattern to existing patterns does seem to take longer than coming up with a whole new design, but it's really fascinating to do. Edges still need to be sanded, and pins attached, and then they need to be photographed. I'm hacking my way through a thicket of deadlines right now, but as soon as I'm done I'll be able to update my shop again.


And I can't wait to play with these: tiny handmade porcelain tiles. They're a lovely creamy colour and texture, and the transfers will look great on them!

The thing I love about recycling is not having a blank slate, but having to work with what's there already. Your brooches really are unique and beautiful
