Cream and Black

This pretty little bracelet has been custom made, going all the way to Australia.  The lady it is intended for is very petite, therefore the bracelet seems of almost childlike proportions to me!

I love the classic combination of cream and black together, it can be worn with almost anything.

A standard version of this bracelet will be available shortly at Mimi Pearl to purchase. 

Handcrafted with cream freshwater pearls, swarovski crystal and glossy onyx.

Elephant Cushion

Last night I made this cute cushion for a friend who adores elephants. 

The main part of the cushion is vintage green floral fabric, which has a lovely cosy feel to it, the elephant (which is a Cath Kidston template) is made with Liberty fabric and blue floral vintage fabric.  It has the cutest tail!

You can now follow me Twitter, where we can enjoy lots of happy tweeting!

Bespoke Necklace

I love making bespoke one of a kind necklaces.  They tend to be statement pieces, but lend themselves to be worn with a t-shirt through the day or with an evening dress.

This piece has been made for a new customer who has a steel grey dress (high necked and low at the back) to wear to a wedding.

I hand drilled these stunning organic Paua shells and married them with chunky rock crystals, with baby swarovski crystals between.  As the dress is low backed, I put a cluster of pearls, moonstone and rock crystal to drape at the nape of the neck.  The shells are offset slightly to create added interest.
