NEW 'Lace' Collection debut

I know I have been very, very lax in updating my blog lately.  Its been a busy time here with visitors and I've also been keeping myself very busy with lots of new designs which I'm hoping to list over the coming days.  

But one of my new ranges that I wanted to tell you all about is my 'Lace' collection.  A fusion of wire wrapping, crochet, knitting and forging to create one of a kind pieces of wire 'lace' - adorned with luxurious (and often sumptuous) gems.  My latest addition is inspired and named 'Traviata' - based on the novel of 'La Dame aux Camélias' by Alexandre Dumas. One of the greatest love stories of all time, this novel has fascinated generations of readers. Dumas's subtle and moving portrait of a woman in love is based on his own love affair with one of the most desirable courtesans in Paris.  Darkly romantic and feminine, with lashings of gothic chic, this is one of my favorite cuffs to date.

My new lace collection is available at my etsy store.
