Remember What The Dormouse Said

As you can see we have been taking some more photos of Sarah wearing some jewellery ^_^ Think you can do better? Drop us a message if you are a cute girl between the ages of 18 and 25 and fancy doing some pictures with us! 
At the moment we are loving singing White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane. What a tune.

We are designing our new flash website which is looking amazing so far... it will hopefully be up and running in the next few weeks!

In other news we are happy to be releasing two of our favourite necklaces into the wild, going to Australia and Los Angeles

As your attorney I advise you to keep your beady eyes on the blog Aspire for your chance to win an It's A Lovely Cake long Bambi necklace in an upcoming giveaway! We'll keep you posted.   

Right now we're going to eat some crisps (Argentinian steak flavour) but don't mind us, check out these GEMS:

 "We've got the same lob rate!"

"Yes I know what a parking meters are"

The Jewellery Maker

Sarah was recently lucky enough to have her portrait painted by the amazing artist, Neil Chard. It was entered into the BP National Portrait Awards, although unfortunately it didn't make the shortlist. We think it's amazing! It looks like a photograph! You can even see all the split ends perfectly ha ha. It's called "The Jewellery Maker" and features one of our necklaces (Vintage Rainbow Crystal Necklace With Parisian Button) He took over 100 photos of Sarah and made up an image from those. From start to finish it took four months to paint!
Please become a fan of Neil Chard on Facebook to see more of his art!

We praised the Sun today

And I love to live so pleasantly
Live this life of luxury
Lazin' on a sunny afternoon

The sun is shining
The weather is sweet, yeah

Good Day Sunshine
Good Day Sunshine
Good Day Sunshine!

Yesterday we had fun with Modpodge -- it is this amazing magical substance, an adhesive goo you can use to decoupage and make collages. We have made few earring holders from vintage 7 inch vinyls covered with pictures from cut up Dragonball Z comics and a manga called Et Cetera using some Modpodge, it's pretty fun and they are looking really good! We've also been looking at some better website building tools.
Demonic nipples.
Lyric of the day: Do you realise the sun doesn't go down it's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

You Asked For The Truth!

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour,
That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned,
A sun that is the source of all our power.
The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
Are moving at a million miles a day
In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour,
Of the galaxy we call the 'Milky Way'.
Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars.
It's a hundred thousand light years side to side.
It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick,
But out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide.
We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point.
We go 'round every two hundred million years,
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions
In this amazing and expanding universe.

The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
In all of the directions it can whizz
As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know,
Twelve million miles a minute, and that's the fastest speed there is.
So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth.
