There's whiskey in the jar-o...

This week I have been working on some gorgeous necklaces made from 
vintage decanter tags. 
Here are some of the beauties I have been upcycling!
They bring back memories of my grandma's liquor cabinet. I always loved the faceted decanter bottles too- I use these to store bubble bath in.
There is something quite rock n roll about the necklaces. Bar brawl chic!  

What's your poison?

My work space.

This is where all my jewellery making and order packing happens. Here is a peek into my work space and some of the things that make me very happy...
I found my vintage cameo miniatures in local charity shops but they have loads on ebay! I'm considering getting chaotic and covering the entire wall with them. My upcycled orange cherubs are from the fabulous ladies at Nashpop. I adore their collection of vintage to neon homeware and could easily house everything in their shop. I love my dog lamp but hope one day soon he will be accompanied by an Abigail Ahern.
 Channeling my love for all things Medieval with the Cheap Frills wax stamp! 
This large oil on canvas 'Island Girl' is by my talented friend and artist May Everett. She has pride of place above my desk (Island girl not May!) 
Check out more of May's works here..
Love putting records on! It's a bit annoying having to flip them all the time but the romantic in me says it's worth it. I picked up the Davidoff cigar clock in Amsterdam. 
Portraits of our dogs Rocket and Boo, both done by artists on Brighton Seafront.  
Rocket's is so accurate!
Usual messy desk! I always wanted a regal looking chair and was so delighted when I got this one. Not great for the back, but it's a beauty! 
All my friends think she is creepy but I love my blue woman by Barry Leighton Jones. I got her in a flea market in Lewes. Apparently she used to hang in a pub nearby and spook all the locals. That made me like her more.  
Another dog lamp! I'm a sucker for anything animal themed.
 This is Onion and he is from Urban Outfitters.
