feeling like im getting somewhere ish

Feel a little more positive this week about Rocks For Frocks, my business plan and grant application has gone in, not sure how long that takes but fingers crossed.

I had a meeting with a lovely lady at a new shop in Chester called Boda Bridal, and to my amazement she actually bought half my stock and is going to display it in her shop, with a selection of my packaging, I have a few more things to make for her too, so if anyones in the Chester area pop in and have a look, its a gorgeous shop too, a very good concept of a shop for everything for weddings and she's stocking a selection of nicely made items.

Had my first customer on the website through a google search! She searched for invisible necklace and my site came up about 3rd - woooo!

Im biting the bullet and putting an advert in one of the big wedding magazines, Wedding Ideas, which should be in the next issue, really pleased with the advert, the guy at the magazine created it. Fingers crossed that it gets me some business!


WE had a lovely day the other week at Morano Silver on Nics Silver clay course, learnt loads, but of course putting it into practise is more difficult, I now have a nice collection of little silver balls!
I am enjoying making molds, made a really nice spiral shell which i managed to break about 3 times, once by running over it with my chair! the finished result is pretty though and i will post pics when the whole piece is finished. I also made a star with the mold from a swarovski crystal and a couple of hand stamped tags

This necklace is called wish on a star

and i made this little tag with a blue topaz dangle

and now ive used up all my clay and had to order more! gets very addicitive!
