Have a look at some of the unique gifts you could buy.
Have a great day and remember Keeeeeep Crafting!!
We had a great weekend, the bedale festival was amasing and a big thank you to all who came over and gave our stall a visit. We had a very successful day I also got a little sunburnt but the weather was amazing.
We will be going to the carboot this weekend also so if you ned those last minute Fathers Day gifts then pop over and have alook.
Well I am off now to do the boring task of stock take and then see if I can make some jewellery today.
Already today I have done 2 loads of washing and cut the grass in the garden so I am on a roll!! The weather is so nice and it is set to be great for the weekend and that will be great as we will be at the Bedale Festival a Carboot this weekend and there will be fairground rids, a parade and loads of fun stuff even an RAF display.
I am so Looking forward to it. As i said yesturday I was going to be having a play with my wire rings and here are some of the results.
I love the look. Thay can be adjusted also. They will be on my website www.blandsgillcottagecrafts.co.uk soon so keep an eye out for them. Have a great weekend and check out the website. xx
I have been trying new styles of wire wrapping rings and i have come up with some great designs. They are £7.50 each on the website or if you would like them with Sterling Silver Wire the please add on £15.00. The Genuine Gems are hand faceted in India and have a great luster to them. Here is a photo of one I will up load the rest later today.
This particular piece was previwed on Jewellery Maker TV's Wall of Fame.
Happy Monday to you all. We hope that you had a great weekend. We did at the first ever BAMFest in Bedale North Yorks. We held a stall in the craft section of the festival and met loads of people so if you were there then a big hello to you.
We were inside but the weather was great for all the outdoor acts.
This is a picture of the stall we had at the festival.
Hope you like it.
We will be working on more festivals and country shows this year so watch this space, although we will be bak at the regular carboot sale this Saturday.
I will be making some wire work rings this week and getting started with some chain mallie. I shall show you the results.
I have been delving into the world of sterling silver wire wrapped rings and this ring was made up of Rhodocrosite and sterling silver wire. It is a size T. The price of this ring is £30.00. I shall be putting it up on the web site soon.
If you think you would like a ring made with a certain gemstone then please let me know and I can see what I can do for you. I can make it with Sterling silver or silver plated for a more economical price in the region of £7.50. I love the way these rings have movement and are quite organic in look and feel, more than one can be worn for that cocktail ring look.
We are at the Carboot sale today so please feel free to pop over and se what we are up to and if you cannot make then look on our etsy store or at blandsgillcottagecrafts.co.uk
Well I have been experimenting making some head dresses, great for a festival or wedding. I love the look they are very Medieval. I am going to try to make one with chain mallie but that will be quite time consuming but I will give it a go.
We will be in Bedale Carboot sale on Saturday 25th May. So pop along and see what deals we have on our stall.
Good day to you all.
I know I have been offline for a while but my sister and myself have been really busy setting up a website. We have also been going to a regular sale every Saturday so we have been really busy. But now I am going to try my hardest to show you what we are up to and where we will be in the future.
We will be attending the BAM Fest in Bedale North Yorks on the last weekend of May. So we are very much looking forward to that and it is
because of that, that we have been busy making jewellery to sell there. But no worries if you cannot get to the festival as we have a web page it is www.blandsgillcottagecrafts.co.uk we ahve a whole host of jewellery, findings, strands and altered art.
We have again been very busy creating over that last few weeks. Watch out in the next couple of days for new items in our shop.
Katie has been creating fabulous card packs. They are great to have in your home as you never know when someone is going to come home and say "I need a card for such and such it's their birthday" With this pack you have it or even give a card pack to someone as a gift.
I, Christine, the other half to this duo, have been sewing. I have made some shopping bags which you can buy ready made or as a kit to be completed by yourself.
Also I have made more gem hair slides to show different combinations available in our Wedding section, as it is sometimes hard to imagine the finished producted without seeing it.
It is always a pleasure seeing you all visiting our humble little shop.
