We're All Ears- October 2015


This months inspiration comes from the catwalk and features designs in gorgeous aubergine tones by Monique Lhuillier.  Well, I can count on one hand how many times I have worn high heels in my life as glamour is not my thing at all.  I did however, home in on the outfit with the fur coat as I used to wear an acrylic fun fur like that many, many, many years ago when I was a student.  Back then The Clash and the Sex Pistols (British Punk) were the bands of my formative years. So thinking myself young again, that is the outfit I would choose to wear, only I would have to pick accessories to glam it down a notch or two!   

Jelly Hoops
Now this is an experiment for me, as I've never used polymer clay before.  I focused on the blue that can be seen on the models nail polish (Ok there's a bit of artistic licence going on here!) and I was aiming for an urban vibe with these hoops, although in truth the translucent clay reminds me of jelly sandals. I'm quite pleased I got the copper wire to bake in securely, I've tugged it with pliers and it won't budge so that's a good start.

Just a Quickie...

Caught sight of these little harbour porpoises 'jumping' past our house today.  I've never been able to catch them on camera before.  There were quite a few of them and the sea was nice and calm...xx
