Folksy Friday - Roses

Today's Folksy Friday is all about roses. I have just found some pretty pink ones that have cropped up from no where in my garden so thought I would look for more from the clever people on Folksy.

See Through Spirals

Some of you may remember seeing my Silver Spirals post about a new range I am developing, well this is another part of the collection. Made from clear plastic with hints of colour these are really cute little earrings.

The latest addition to this collection will be revealed soon.

My Friends Bags and Purses

My friend Zoe has been making hand bags and accessories for quite a while now. Each one is handmade and there are no two quite the same.
She tends to use retro gothic style fabrics and then adds finishing touches such as lace, ribbons and handmade buttons.

These are a few of her items which can be seen here and here

Business Decision of the Week

This year I decided that I would try and concentrate my efforts on my jewellery business Zazu Jewellery.
I decided to attend craft events like I did last year but I have to say the majority have been absolutely appalling for numerous reasons.

So, I decided after carrying out a survey that I would use the money I have been spending on events and use it to advertise through Google, get a brochure printed and get some flyers made up to promote my jewellery parties.

I am also re building my website which will include new ranges including Sterling Silver, Wedding rings, jewellery, accessories and favours.

So where will you see Zazu Jewellery this year? We are going to try and attend a market in London once a month, jewellery parties can be carried out in the comfort of your own home and we plan to extend our stockists and galleries around the country.
