Thanks for all the fish

Hi all – I just wanted to thank everyone who is following me, my shops, social media, and, especially, this blog.

A few days ago I mentioned that, as well as my Etsy shop, I now have Rose Bay Jewellery, a brand new jewellery website that I am slowly building up inventory for. Well, I have now decided to move my blogging space over there as well, and if you would like to check it out, you can find it here.

Also. A quick reminder that I have Twitter and Instagram accounts if you would like to come along for the ride. Followers aren't expected to purchase jewellery (though I certainly won't say no if you want to!) it's just nice to have somebody to talk to - I get kind of lonely on my own...

Feel free to follow any of the above and if you want to say hello, that's good too. I love knowing where my visitors have found me, and if it so happens you've been following me from some other project – from fan sites, for instance, I'd love to know that, too.

I shall look forward to meeting you!

New Website!

Here you are, as promised, is my brand-spanking-new website!

This website will largely showcase products that use brass, silk, ceramics, leather, and other quality fabrics and materials.

I still have work to do on the website, products to add, tweaking to do, but it is now ready for viewing.

I still have my Etsy shop, in case you are wondering, and that will continue to serve up quirky helpings of fun jewellery, so never fear! Two courses of Rosebay Jewellery! How tasty is that?

January and its cold

How's the new year treating you all? I hope you aren't affected by all this cold weather we're having. At least where I am its cold, but we have no snow (at the moment, anyway, though it is forecast) and I've seen reports of the awful weather some of you are having to cope with. I hope you and yours are keeping safe and warm.

With the shop to run, and having to make jewellery a season or two ahead of time, I should be thinking Spring/Summer now. I do struggle a bit to feel in mood for those halcyon summer days when its flipping freezing, or Christmas things in the blazing June, for that matter! I do, of course, still add to the stock if I get a whim for a summer necklace actually in summer, but in normal circumstances it is too late to go through the taking-pictures-and-listing process in time for you to be able to buy it at the right time!

However. I have made a lovely batch of lightweight acrylic summer necklaces, so here you go:

Also, a quick reminder, given how often I post (or don't, as the case may be) here - you can follow me on my other social media if you want to check that I haven't, you know, died.

I do post latest products there, obviously, but not just that. On Instagram I post local views (I use the hashtag #rosebaycountry for that) pets, the garden, silly vegetables or whatever else I fancy. On Twitter I retweet a lot of stuff, mostly anything fun, quirky, or interesting.  And for those that aren't aware, I am a closet Geek, so fandom stuff will often sneak in there, too...
