I’m pleased to announce a new workshop date to craft your own hand stamped silver initial tag necklace. Join me on 23rd March 2019 at Studio Cotton, this gorgeous central space in Bristol is worth it for the Instagram photo opportunities alone!

Limited tickets are available from my shop now, I teach in small groups so that there’s lots of time for questions and for me to help you if you need it. Don’t worry if you’re coming on your own, this workshop is very relaxed and we have plenty of time for me to support you making something beautiful to take home.

No previous experience is necessary, the technique for making is very straightforward. We will start to practice on aluminium, making our own stamped cuff bangle. Then we will move onto stamping onto sterling silver, creating three initials to hang on your necklace.

If you know someone who would be interested in joining in do feel free to give them a tag in the comments below. I hope to see you soon.

Etsy Made Local Market in Bristol 1st December 2018

Pouss Jewellery Design Etsy Made Local market Bristol City Hall 1st December 2018

Many thanks to everyone who braved the weather and turned up for the annual Etsy Made Local Market held this year in Bristol in City Hall on College Green. Having lived in Bristol for a number of years I still can’t believe this was the first time I’d ever been into City Hall!

The beautiful high ceiling space was filled with local designer makers, 60 different sellers showcasing their work each day over the weekend. I was so impressed with the curation of the range of work by the Bristol Etsy Team, everything fitted together perfectly to make one large giant pop up market of gorgeous lustworthy gifts.

As well as selling my jewellery I picked up a couple of gorgeous ceramic art pieces by Bird Can Fox (a snake and a pink shell dish), a giant massive roll out poster by Dixon does Doodles and brooches from Little Paisley Designs. My assistant on the day, Beth, had a mid-afternoon spend-a-thon with Nellies Treasures gorgeous children’s wall hangings and Victoria Williams covetable earrings. We could have easily spent a lot more, but these were just gifts for ourselves!

I also am delighted with my beautiful blooms on my stall created by the lovely Lucy Coco Floristry. Lucy created gorgeous vintage pastel posies for me, hand tied in glass jars and even added in my favourite things at the moment, dried flowers.

I loved meeting you all and thank you for coming to support myself and the Etsy Bristol community. In this world where we are overwhelmed with buying choices I’m always grateful when someone chooses to support my small business. So thank you again, it does mean a lot to me to be able to keep making and dreaming up new ideas.

What a wonderful weekend, it’s a shame it was all over so soon! Roll on next year’s Etsy Made Local market in Bristol. I will no doubt be popping up somewhere else very shortly to sell in person, updates will be here on the blog.

Etsy Made Local in Bristol kicked off this weekend and I had a brilliant time teaching my workshop group how to make their own hand stamped silver necklaces. Along with the Made Local market with 60 sellers each day, I hosted a workshop to teach how to made stamped silver initial necklaces.

Everyone made some gorgeous silver necklaces to take away along with a handful of aluminium cuff bangle bracelets too. I love seeing how everyone’s style evolves and is so different even though we all had the same tools and materials.

Many thanks to the Bristol Etsy Team for hosting this weekend and having me in to do my workshop in the historic City Hall on College Green, Bristol.

If you’re interested in future workshops or would like me to host one in your space please do get in touch.

I've picked out my favourites that you will be able to find at the market this weekend, if you're there quick (I'm sure these will sell out). 

 

Bird Can Fox - Recent collaborations with Anthropologie have made her treasures in porcelain and ceramic even more sought after. Be quick to get your paws on one of these beautiful handmade pieces, definitely one you won't want to gift away, keep this for yourself!

Little Paisley Designs - Attempt to not buy the whole stall, I dare you. I love Ellie's 2018 calendar and fridge magnets, but to be honest I could easily swipe up everything. 

Sunshine for Breakfast - Cheerful motivation can be lacking in these winter months. Pep yourself up with some feel good inspirational prints and cards for your work desk. Or gift to someone who needs a little sunshine in their life.

Pipistrelle Design - My thing for ceramics runs deep, I can't resist these beautiful porcelain mushrooms. So tactile and even more stunning in real life, the feel of porcelain in your hands really is wonderful. 

Hello Harriet - Cat and dog lovers rejoice, hand illustrated goodies for your furry pals or pet fans in general. Go crazy for the prettiest pastels, hand lettering and illustrations from Bath based Harriet Gray.
