Christmas Market!

Hello peeps! For any of you in the Cardiff area we are going to Cardiff Vintage and Handmade Christmas Market and Santa's Grotto in Pontcanna on Saturday (December 3rd). We are expecting it to be busier than the last one so it's going to feel really Christmassy. To get you into the festive spirit there's going to be mince pies, mulled wine and a raffle and Santa Claus himself is even going to be there! Best of all, all of this is going to be for the charity Pedal Power, helping to make cycling accessible for all, particularly adults and children with disabilities.
Check this out!

PIG Love

I recently commissioned a portrait of my beloved pig by the fantastic MimiLove and it arrived today! It's so so beautiful!

 She paints the most amazing pictures and actually stitches special details into the canvas; she describes herself as one woman, a needle, a paintbrush, a disturbing music back catalogue in her brain and too much time on her hands.
MimiLove is inspired by memories, misty watercolour memories, of the way she were, making stitchy, painty, musically, animally combo's for home n personal adornment.
Big up one love!

Shiny Holy Fuck

We've got some new jewellery photographs today ^_^

We are really loving the blingting lately --lots of gold, shiny brass, super loaded charm goodness and layered chunky chains! Phwoar look at the snoot on this! 
This actually happened to my cat:

We have been having great fun reading The Peculiar Memories of Thomas Penman by Bruce Robinson, it is absolutely fucking hilarious! One of the first lines is "He rode the toilet like a horse, facing the wall, and crept around in the attic with his penis out" Hahaha!
And we've got some new jewellery in the shop on our website:

An Epic Battle

Another blog post, another dead pet.

This time we are waving Little Frankie Wonder off into the sunset. Say hi to Pig for me. And so the wheel turns...welcome Moonpie!

She looks great in our new, completed studio!
Our very talented painter friends Joe and Tarian have been busy decorating the inside with a skronkalicious I.A.L.C and a giant squid embroiled in a battle to the death with a sperm whale... oh yes.

More pictures coming soon.
