Do You Have A Whistle Pig?

The past month has been full of travel and time spent with dear friends. Now I'm back in the studio gearing up for the busy holiday season which will be here before we know it.

First things first — I should start with tidying up because the work table looks like it's been hit by a bomb and it's hard to find things.

Outside the garden is full of flowers and the insects are showing up in crazed hungry droves. Looking out the studio window is like watching Butterfly TV.

Raspberries on raspberry bush in garden

There's a lot of butternut squash this year, and raspberries, but the naughty and very fat groundhogs (aka whistle pigs) have taken liberties with the tomatoes and greens. I'm going to start dreaming about next year's garden successes.


Fashion shoots

Recently my jewelry's been included in some gorgeous photo shoots including this one of actress Nana Ghana.

You can find links to a whole bunch of jewelry features here...

Reading & watching

I'm a huge Kate Atkinson fan so I devoured her latest Jackson Brodie adventure, Big Sky, as soon as I could get my hands on it. 

I'm hooked on The Great British Baking Show. I haven't baked a single new thing but I now feel like a puff pastry expert...

What have you been watching or reading? Please let me know by replying to this email. I'm always looking for suggestions.

The contents of teeny tiny households;
colorful Bolivian women wrestlers;
and I'd like one of these sculptures at my house please.



Are you on Pinterest? It's a great place to get ideas. I pin regularly about jewelry, art and home decor.
