The latest...

It's been a busy old time in theatre land so pretty quiet in the jewellery land! Although I have a few more bits and pieces made that I just need to get photographed. Working on the Etsy shop, still got more to get up there and doing all the wee bits and pieces like ordering the business cards ( is great!!) and getting everything catalogued. It's getting there!!

The first of the jelly baby range, a bit of a bugger to mould but we got there :)
The first of the cupcake bracelets.
They come in a range of colours and are developing all the time :)

The Cupcake kilt pin brooches.

cupcakes are becoming a bit of a theme!!

The Ribbon and Dice necklace. Fiddly to make but looks amazing!!

The start of the earrings using some old beads I found in a pile of old jewelry

My computer keeps freezing or i'd add a few more, I'm slowly getting things up on etsy so check out

Well Hello...

So here's the first Little Red Star blog post.

I've spoke about it on other blogs and social sites so thought it was time that I set one up just for the jewellery. This is the place where you can find examples of my work and thoughts on what I'm up to.

But first I'll tell you a bit about it all :)

I'm 27 and live in St Andrews, Scotland.

I am a trained Lighting Designer and have spent the last 6 years working is various roles in theatre, most recently as a Technical Manager

I have always had a big interest in design and have spent most of my life involved in it in some way

I decided 2010 was to be the year of change for me, and in March Little Red Star was created, bringing together a hobby I have taken part in for some time.

I have been selling the odd bits and pieces on ebay and to friends and family but now is the time to step it up a bit

I like making things and the idea of creating something from nothing, be it with light or polymer clay!

I make the things I like, things that are fun, cute, a bit kitsch and always colourful and things, most importantly I would buy myself :)

Cuteness is a big theme for me and I love all things Kawaii, which comes across in my work.

I use a range of different materials, some old, some new. Polymer clay is a current fave.

I like scouting around junk shops and car boot sales for things i can reuse in my jewellery, i have got some fab bits that in time will become something special

I hope you like it and any feedback would be greatly appreciated :)
