A Little time for me

so i have had a rare few days where in between being mum , and looking after a poorly daughter, i have made a couple of different pieces for me, my son and my shop!  

As many of you probably know, i work forJewellerymaker and am very lucky to know many of the other guest designer's that work there also, one of these being the lovely Fleur Hastings ofRocks 'n' Chains  who is a very clever and talented chainmaille artisian!  so, i was watching Fleur last week and she inspired me to get back into the chainmaille bug, i have never done the full persian weave before but she made it look so easy i had to have a go!

Hotel Challenge

Well Good Afternoon all!!!

so, i said i was going to try to stay productive with my blog and so here i am! so last night i updated you all with my first home challenge of 2017, but feeling in the mood, i decided to make a little something special when i was in my hotel on saturday night.

so, loaded with sterling silver wire, stunning round amethyst, a sneaky pink grapefruit and gin (really nice!) and my laptop, i settled in for the night.

popping on Netflix, i decided to watch "the voices" with ryan reynolds (yes please!

My first home challenge of 2017

last year went a  little bit crazy and i found i wasn't able to create pieces just for me, i love my job, creating jewellery, writing magazine articles and so on, but sometimes i just like to sit and not think, no restrictions, limitations or guidelines, and make something!!!

so, on Saturday that happened!  

i have been unwell this last week with a lovely bug that has hit me for six, so much that i had to cancel a show for JM and  i never do that!!

so, to get my head back in the game, i grabbed a stunning lampwork bead by creeky beads, some bare copper wire in 0.

Bit of a catch up!!

Happy Monday to you all!!

Well, it was a week ago that I returned from JM but after having rested and then doing some paperwork and then my daughter's birthday and her party and so on... I have only just managed to find the time to show my last train challenges off!!

So, I am not going to bore you with tons of posts, I am going to do them all in one, here it is!!! now, where to start?

Well I had a fabulous time in Diggerland with my family to celebrate my hubby's birthday, lots of fun was had by all but I think the birthday boy really had the most fun!

Time to travel....

Well good Morning to you all!!

I hope you are all having a fab weekend so far!!! it's not the sunniest here in Bristol but at least it's not raining...yet!!!

so, time to update you i guess with my latest train challenge! As some of you will know, I was on a Designer Inspiration show on Thursday 29th May, a cabochon special, where I listened to some of my liker's on my guest designer page and tried to incorporate some of the requests in to the show, I hope you liked the designs!!! for those of you who don't watch the show, here are a few highlights of my makes

oooo I do get spoilt!!!

well, I have already shared my train challenge journey with you, but I just had to share what a fabulous time I had with an amazing lady!!! 

The ever so talented Natalia Coleman of SilverClayCreations was running her first tan leather course at JM and i was lucky enough to see the amazing creations of a lovely bunch of ladies!!! 



















After my late show had finished we had a lovely meal in the Foxlidyiate, with a lovely catch up and drop of pink....and of course, we had to finish the night off in style!

Train Challenge for Ali

Well, it is that time of the week again.. and I am happily packing my bag ready to head off to JM towers for the late show and of course my intermediate wirework workshop on Saturday.

Now, some people may know, some may not, but on my last late show with Ali Defoy two weeks ago, I promised both Ali and the viewer's that if my lovely mother happened to be watching (I knew she was!) and she had managed to get me the stunning coated tiger eye brioilettes that had been aired, (they were lush!!) that I would try to make something with them and show them on the next show (the show I was heading to!

So i finally bit the bullet....

So, after lots of umming and ahhhing i have decided to finally do it and write a blog!!! i love using social media and often update everyone via my facebook pagesJM Guest Designer Laura Binding andYou Nique You Jewellery but i figured it was time to be able to go into detail and keep people up to date with what i am getting up to and of course, for those of you who do follow me, my train challenges!!! 

so, if you have just stumbled upon me and have no idea what i am talking about, let me explain, as a guest designer for Jewellerymaker, i travel to and from the studio via train and have approximately 1hr 40 before i change over to the local train to get to Redditch.
