* Handmade Christmas Stockings *

My FiancĂ© & I are a bit short of money this Christmas (I'm sure we are all feeling the pinch this year!) and we are frantically saving for our wedding next year, which is becoming increasingly expensive... eeek! Anyway to save us some money we decided we wouldn't buy each other any big presents and instead just give small gifts in a Christmas stocking. Neither of us owned a stocking and I didn't like any I saw in the shops so decided to make our own personalised stockings out of calico and red felt. I am very pleased with the end result and hopefully they will stay with us for many years. Now all I have to do is fill Jamie's stocking with gifts. x

Night Shades Lace Belt

This "Night Shades" lace belt is made from Black lace with a bit of gold shimmer and with the added Gold buttons and brooches it has a bit of an antique feel to it. This would go great with a little black dress for any of your Christmas events. x

Twinkled Crochet Bags

I have had these Gold & Black crochet bags for a while now and I just didn't know what to do with them, they just looked quite boring. So I decided to jazz them up a bit with the use of some ribbon & bows and added some ribbon straps. They look much better now and are perfect to use on a night out. x

Black & Gold Lace Top

This is the newest addition to my embellished tops, using black & gold lace with gold buttons and beads. Ideal for jazzing up any jean & t-shirt combo and can be worn from day into evening with a pair of black or gold heels... Fab x

Lost Treasures & Dew Drops Charm Bracelets

My Charm Bracelets sold out at my Tea Party back in April, so I have made a couple more to sell for Christmas. The bracelet above is called the "Lost Treasures" charm Bracelet because I have made it from lots of individual charms and pendants that I have collected from other reclaimed jewellery all attached to a gold chain.

The second charm Bracelet that I have made recently is the "Dew Drops" charm bracelet, this is also made from lots of individual charms that have been collected from reclaimed jewellery in blue & green tones on a silver chain. x

Glinting Glamour Clutch Bag

My leather clutch bags have become quite popular, So I have made one more to add to the collection. This one is made from a fuchsia colour soft gloving leather with gold & silver leather trims. it is lined with a pretty printed cotton in fuchsia, blues & ivory. Great for Christmas Parties. x

Hidden Treasures Heart Necklace

This antique bronze "Hidden Treasures Heart" necklace is the last of my new necklaces for the Christmas Stall.
I have made it from a bronze heart pendant with hot pink ribbon and hot pink charms, a very girly accessory :) x

Hearts of Stone Necklace

New for the Christmas market, this handmade & one of a kind "Hearts of Stone" necklace, made from 3 different heart pendants that I have collected from various places and a pretty little bow, all threaded on a silver chain. I think what makes this necklace special is that I'm sure these hearts from various places all have a different story to tell, who knows! x

Queen of Bows Necklace

I have a Christmas market coming up on 18th December at Berkamsted, my first big Christmas market so I have made a few more items to bulk out my stall. The first of which is this "Queens of Bows" necklace made from an old crown brooch I collected on my travels, I added a pretty polka dot bow and added it to a silver chain and vouloir here is my "Queen of Bows" necklace. I'm almost tempted to keep it for myself! x

Pearly Princess Necklace

I have neglected my Blog for many months :( it seems I have had other things on my mind since getting engaged! :) Wedding planning has been keeping me very busy, but I am at the exciting stage of actually designing and making all the decorations and accessories now. I will post some Photos after the Big day in 8 months time!

Anyway I finally got round to making something new, for my friend Helen's birthday in October. I made her this pretty "Pearly Princess" necklace, with pearls and other charms and presented it in a pretty box with the Emma Elizabeth Logo on. x
