I’m Still Here.

Posted by on Oct 20, 2020

Being in business for 28 years means I’ve seen my fair share of ups and downs. The main thing about running your own business as a “Solopreneur” is that you HAVE to be adaptable and flexible on a moment’s notice. No Board of Directors here to run it past first! Just me, myself and I, […]

Does Everybody have a Money Tree?

Posted by on Sep 8, 2020

The answer is probably, yes!  And in this pandemic world, don’t we all need a little extra cash? You probably don’t know that the precious gold jewellery you no longer wear – you know those pieces that are sitting around in a darkened jewellery box or drawer – could be worth more to you turned […]

I Said I’d Write Monthly…

Posted by on Aug 18, 2020

But you know what they say about the best laid plans… there’s intention, and then there’s real life. Or weird life. Or new life. Whatever you call it, it’s just different.  And here we are, it’s mid- August. You’d think that writing monthly would be easy, with all this extra time. But you know what […]

What a Difference a Year Makes!

Posted by on May 26, 2020

Not quite sure how to begin this blog post? Where do I begin when it’s been almost exactly a year since we last met in this space?   I’m not really sure HOW I fell off the “monthly blog post wagon” but I did, and I fell hard. So hard, that it seemed impossible to get […]

Where Does the Time Go?

Posted by on May 10, 2019

Hard to believe that it’s already May! My track record for writing and publishing monthly blog entries for 2019, isn’t exactly working out to be a monthly thing! So much has happened since I last hit ‘publish’ way back in February. Here is the Coles Notes version, or does that reference date me? My boys […]

Posted by on Feb 19, 2019

My apologies that you haven’t heard from me since November 2018. This blog post will serve as a mish-mash of topics to catch you up with all that I have been up to since then. Firstly, I’m sure it’s no secret that as a jeweller, I just get busier and busier leading up to Christmas. […]

They’re Back! After a four-year absence.

Posted by on Nov 21, 2018

For those of you who have been following along with what I’ve been up to for a while, you may recall a selection of Italian machine-made sterling silver chains that I used to offer. In 2015, I stopped ordering them because the cost of the Euro at that time, together with increased labour charges from […]

Obsessed? Maybe….but am I having FUN?! YES!!!

Posted by on Nov 2, 2018

O.K., so I’m going to be giving my age away with this post! Does anyone else remember those scarf rings from the 1970’s? My Mother had one that she absolutely loved and wore all the time with her large collection of scarves. I always liked the idea of the scarf ring, but never really got […]

Can’t Stop Now … More Shawl Pin Designs!

Posted by on Sep 15, 2018

I am totally loving my continuing quest to knit things (at the moment – mostly shawls) and then designing the ultimate “jewellery for your knitting”. Thought you’d like to see where my creativity has taken me since I first posted, in June 2018, about my foray into creating the perfect shawl pins. Here is another […]
