releasing the autumn/winter 2017 ‘simplicity’ collection

A little late in the release, but finally here….

the autumn/winter 2017 ‘simplicity’ collection

I’ve been having a bit of a time with my fingers of late.  Not working properly, and when I do manage to make, paining me for a bit after.  So the decision was made to reduce the number of pieces for this season’s collection.

Inspired by my love of minimalism and simplicity, each set of earrings is simple in design, but with enough fabulousness to be uniquely you.

You can pop through to the shop here or click through on the name of each design under the photo for more details.

And be assured, that regardless of the pain, I’m going to keep on making!

In the comments, I’d love to hear:

What is your favourite design in the ‘Simplicity’ collection and why?

53 Pieces of Unsolicited Advice: No.32

having less stuff is better for you

i wish that i was able to fully embrace minimalism

Whenever we’ve moved house, I’ve always pared things back to the essentials – only enough sheets and towels for if we have guests; only eight pieces in the dinner setting and a couple of nice serving platters.

In other areas though, there is more… enough books to fill 3 bookcases; CD’s that rarely get listened to and comic books we’ve been carting around for the last 20-something years.

i often wonder what i would grab if my house were to catch fire

The kids.  My purse.  Maybe a back-up hard drive of my computer, if I were able.  But otherwise, it could all burn.  It’s just stuff.

Your thoughts…?  Does less stuff = more life?

or would you be madly trying to douse the flames?

365 Project – Day 210

Still playing with the minimalism theme.

The ‘cloud’ effect in this photo is one of those happy accidents.  I had the chess piece on a piece of white cardboard (to act as the background) and it was obscuring the foreground a bit – hence the hazy-cloud…  I kind of like it.

365 Project – Day 209

The theme this week over at 365 project is minimalism – which is not as easy a one would think when it comes to taking a photo.

Today’s photo is inspired by my Little Man.  He asked me what the running water from the kitchen tap would turn out like in a photo… so here’s the answer.

Minimalism.
