Latest release – Floral & Lace

Floral and lace, a match make in heaven!

I’ve been working with floral decals for quite some time, and lace is a staple, but I’ve never put them together, until now! I love the combination and it seems you guys do too. This new range has been super popular and I think they make the perfect birthday, engagement or wedding gift. Sweet and girly and totally unique.

Check out the full range ready for purchase in my Etsy shop.

Nesting set of porcelain bowls

One of my most popular sets are these nesting rectangle dishes. They look great sitting together as a table centerpiece or on a coffee table or dresser. They are also very functional for holding soap and jewellery in the bathroom, or mints and sweets on the table. If you have a thing for candles, these are great for showing them off. As far as gifts go, you can’t go wrong with one of these sets. They are unique and gorgeous as well as useful and will last a lifetime.

Personalised gifts for all occasions

My range of personalised pieces started with a request from a customer to personalise a ring dish as an engagement gift. A white heart with a doily imprint and the newly engaged couples initials engraved into the unfired porcelain. Here is that very first engraved piece which is still one of my most popular designs.

My range of personalised pieces has been steadily growing since then and I now have quite an array to choose from. They are by far the most popular product across my range and I can certainly understand why. When you give a gift that has been customised and has such a unique personal touch, you are giving something that will likely stay with the recipient for many years to come, and in many cases, will be handed down to become a family heirloom. I’m honoured to say my ring dishes have carried many rings down the aisle then go on to be a precious reminder of a very special day.

To see my range of personalised pieces that are made to order, have a browse through my Madeit or Etsy stores. If you have something in mind, I’m more than happy to work with you to bring your idea to life so you can give a gift to be remembered or maybe something to mark a special occasion of your own.

Here are some of the custom made pieces that have come to life after special requests.

Two months until Christmas

I’m sorry my poor little neglected blog. With everything that comes with running my little business, you seem to come in last behind the seemingly endless… Facebook, Madeit, Etsy, Instagram, Newsletter, not to mention the many orders flooding in for Christmas decorations and other gifts at this time of year. Put on top of that my totally unrealistic need to produce something new and different at least once a fortnight and … Where was I…Ohh look, new gold foil decals on Etsy, now how could I use those…See what I mean!

I’ll keep this one short, well short on words and big on pictures, because that’s what we all like to see right, pictures of pretty things! To say the least I am busy. My order board, which is a big whiteboard hanging on my studio wall is full and has bit of paper stuck to the bottom with sticky tape and scribbled orders. I seem to wipe one off and add two more. But I do love this time of year and the craziness it brings.

And now for the pretty things. Here are some of the piecesĀ I’ve been working on lately:

Introducing the new deluxe range of porcelain ring dishes, with weddings in mind.

I’m proud to introduce my new deluxe range of ring dishes. These little beauties are a little bigger than my standard ring dish and feature a stunning raised swirl pattern in either white or lilac. There are three types of ribbon to choose from, or why not use your own to tie in with the colour scheme of your wedding.

These not only make for a modern alternative to the traditional wedding ring pillow, but also the perfect engagement, wedding or anniversary gift.

Now available in my Etsy or Madeit store

Porcelain lace bowls and other goodies

Well here I go again, off on another tangent yet again. I thought I’d take a teensy break from the beads and pendants and dabble in a bit of homewares. I had an idea for little ring dishes that could be used on wedding days, or to put by the sink when doing the dishes, maybe for a little candle or spoon rest, or just to look pretty around the home. I had the perfect translucent green glaze and some vintage lace I wanted to incorporate too. So after a bit of a play around, here are the first few from the kiln.

Then as I was looking at a pretty doily, I thought ‘what a great bowl’, so that was next on the list. This one is a bit bigger, so has even more uses. Flower bowl_green_2

I’d had a trial run of some coasters that needed tweaking, and after a bit of refinement, I have my first set all done.

And while I was obsessing about this new glaze, I came up with this cute little bangle. Might have to try this one in some different or even mixed colour combos I think.

And as always, I leave you as I head off to try some more new ideas I have. I think that is why my range is so unique and limited, once I’ve got an idea and made it happen, I can’t wait to try the next idea, so most of my pieces are one-off or very limited. And each piece is unique and never duplicated.
