My Favourite Pictures and Memories from August

Hi everyone!

Can you believe it’s September already? This year is flying by!

This post is part of the ESG: My favourite picture of the month August swap on Swap-Bot. I actually almost forgot about it because I have been away this entire week and only return home tomorrow.

August was quite a busy month for me! I had my jewellery stall almost every weekend. The first one was at Alt Market’s The Dance Of The Dragons. Check out these amazing things I bought there!

I am still working in corporate and on Women’s Day the office spoiled us! We got this awesome goodie bag.

There were a few days in August that were quite chilly and Rits decided that he’s become a blanket cat! He normally hates being under a blanket but he did this often during August.

Another market I did was the Smallville Comics Cosplay Contest’s market. It was very far to drive so I had to wake up early, but it was fun and I liked the way I dressed for the day.

I did a very short notice photoshoot the following day with one of my favourite photographers, Jes Hunter. Here’s my favourite photo from the shoot.

My fiancΓ© and I also finally did our engagement shoot! The beautiful photos were taken by Derek Whitton Photography.

On 26th August I had my jewellery stall at the Pins & Needles alternative market. Tasha’s Cakes had these incredibly beautiful cupcakes for sale and I just had to buy one! It was very delicious.

That same evening it was my favourite Goth event, Attrition. I decided to dress up in a Cyber Goth look and I think I definitely need to experiment with Cyber Goth more often! I had lots of fun at the event – I saw some friends I hadn’t seen in a while and danced most of the night away!

I hope you enjoyed hearing about my month!

My favourite jewellery

Hi everyone!

 

My apologies for not posting in a while. I have been dealing with a lot of personal issues and have also been really busy with my jewellery business.

 

This post is part of the ESG: Show us your jewelry! swap on Swap-Bot. I’ve decided to just show my absolute favourite jewellery items, as I have a lot of jewellery!

 

Firstly, let me show you how I store my jewellery. Most of my jewellery is on this hanging display, but then I also have some in separate trinket boxes. My rings and brooches are kept in the purple trinket box shown.

I don’t have one favourite item of jewellery that I love the most, but these are some of my favourites. I am a firm believer in supporting small businesses so many of these items were made for me by local crafters.

 

First up, this beautiful anatomical heart cameo necklace made by La’ila Designs:

Next, a custom raven necklace made by Puff’s Handiwork:

An Alchemy Gothic bat necklace that I got secondhand:

One of my own creations that I kept because I loved it so much:

This awesome 3D printed raven skull necklace by SIN BIN: Graphic and Fashion Design:

A violin themed choker that I made for myself:

And finally, a dragon ring, imported by Big Dog Steel

All of these pieces are items that I wear as everyday pieces. I like to dress up every day and nothing completes an outfit quite like some extravagant jewellery!
