Glamourpuss is in the building!

Hi everyone,

How have you all been? Everyone ready for Christmas? Only a few weeks now - where did the year go?!

I've been keeping busy making a few new items, listing them on Folksy and attending a few Christmas fairs in the local York area.

When I was at the fair in Morley, I met the fantastically talented and absolutely lovely Kirsten of Quernus Crafts. She was there selling her gorgeous wee beasties and cats - check them out here. I asked her to undertake a very special commission for me - to make Glamourpuss! As you all know, the 'face' of Glamourpuss Jewellery is my cat and I thought it would be great to have the image immortalised by Kirsten. She was very keen with the idea and bravely took up the challenge. A week later and she arrived! Here for your attention Ladies and Gentleman is ...... Glamourpuss!

Isn't she gorgeous?! She really is even better than I could imagine. Her tiara has sparkly jewels set into it, her loooong eyelashes are complemented beautifully by her purple eyeshadow, her pink feather boa is so soft - and check out those shoes!! And, my camera didn't manage to pick it up, but her body is not just white - it's got sparkles in it!!! She now has pride of place in my office where I can see her everyday and she always makes me smile. Thank you Kirsten!
All that leaves me to say is you really must go and see all of Kirsten's other creations over at Quernus Crafts. She really is a very talented lady and loves to hear all of your ideas for commission pieces and there is just enough time left before Christmas if you want to treat someone (or yourself!) to something in her shop at Folksy.
Catch you all again soon,
