Good bye, 2010. It's been grand.

I'm posting to pay tribute to 2010, cos it's been freakin awesome. Here's some highlights:

I went to my first Roller Derby bout and fell in love with the sport (and donated a necklace as a charity prize!)


I exhibited KitschenSink in my first pop-up shop, via Designers Marketplace. It looked frickin ace!

I chalked up another awesome stockist, Hannah Zakari

I won a lovely flying goose brooch from Magasin

Generous gifts

I hope you had a fabulous Christmas! I just wanted to share with you a selection of cute things I received.

A leather moustache necklace from Thomas, made by his sister :')

Cute ladybird earphones from my parents

Lovely Lazy Oaf mittens from Thomas. I think he feels sorry for me when I don't wear any!

A super cool Listography journal book from Thomas. I have started this already and can't wait to show you some of my illustrated lists!

A Japanese notebook and pencils from my pal Jess.

I love the inside too! I'll write my plans for 2011 in here.

A Me And Zena robot necklace. It's actually a locket, his belly opens right up. I can't stop fiddling with the magnetic door.... but what to put inside?

Have you blogged your gifts? I'd love to see, link me up below!

Did I mention... Eliza Doolittle?

Rising starlet Eliza Doolittle has been photographed wearing a Wild Jezebel necklace made by little old me!

There's no excuse for not knowing who this girl is. Even if you don't follow the charts, surely you've heard her music on the ad...

If you want one for yourself... you know where to find it...

My personal favourite is 'Pack up'

Pop-up round up: KitschenSink Cupcakes!

I had the help of several wonderful people at the Knitting and Stitching Show. Julia, Tom and Jemma. Lots of love to them all.

On the last day, Jemma surprised me with this awesome surprise! My boy Tom and graphic designer Paul were both in on the secret, n'aw!

And here's a quicky of Gok!

That's it for popping-up shop, for now. I have lots of over exciting things in store...

Manga jewellery now available online!

I already told you I made fifty one-of-a-kind Manga pendants.  They are so popular at shows, I wanted to give my online fans a chance to buy one, so I have photographed and uploaded a few. 



Manga illustration collages are embedded into these handmade bubble heart pendants. The images are from the book 'Kashimashi ~Girl Meets Girl~' Perfect for Manga molls and madams!

The images are taken straight out of the book (no photocopying), decoupaged, and layered with resin blended with jet black dye, making them a one-off!

I wear mine with graphic summer dresses or on a tee and hoody day!

Strung on a 17" chunky silver plated snake chain.

So cute! xoxo
