Oh, look who's back!

I have brought my posh lady back from Poland last week - I'm really happy to have her with me again. She's such a graceful doll to look at.

I've been SO busy lately, doing lots and lots of hillwalking, taking care of my new adorable pets, that I didn't really have time to update this blog, but I'll try to make up for that soon.

I'm in the midst of preparing things for tomorrow's Market in Edinburgh (still a lot on my TO DO list, snap!), and in the meantime carrying out mysterious and smelly experiments - I have no aspirations to turn metals into gold, but discovering a perfect verdigris patina formula would be neat!

Currently trying out the apple cider vinegar and salt solution - I guess it's more suitable for larger pieces, as it didn't turn out that nice on small ones, but maybe it's just me, being crappy chemist...

Cachée dans la forêt shoes #3: "Chasing Time" & The Market in Edinburgh

I am happy to present you the third pair of One Of A Kind shoes by Cachée dans la forêt.

This pair was commissioned, and the person who ordered them, really liked the little clock images on the 2nd pair, hence the clock motif again. I had a lot of fun making them, even though they are quite time consuming!
You can check out more photos on my facebook page.

4th pair, also a commissioned one, is on the way! In the meantime, you can have a peek at a previous one that is still available in my etsy shop.

I am also glad to inform you that Cachée dans la forêt will be visiting Edinburgh on Saturday and taking part in The Market, design and makers market organised by lovely Amelia from Little Red and her friends.

It takes place in St Columbas-by-the-Castle on Saturday, 28th April, at 11am to 5pm.
You can find all the details here.

I will be most happy to see you there!

Cachée dans la forêt shoes #2: "The Time Traveller's Wife"

This is the second pair of limited collection of One Of A Kind shoes by Cachée dans la forêt.
I really enjoyed making the prototype pair you could see on a teaser photo some time ago, and I have decided to continue the project.

Each pair of shoes will have totally different design, and there will be one pair of each design only, in a random size, so I can guarantee you'll never have to worry about meeting someone dressed the same as you at the party! ^-^
Of course it's also possible to commission the shoes in your size with your own design - I love making bespoke pieces for you!

Those gorgeous Mary Janes are adorned with filigree brass rosettes with images of ancient clocks hidden under magnifying glass domes, ribbon bows and roses, and brass bows on the heel parts, those shoes are romantic but with a bit of a twist.
Perfect for time travellers, sentimental souls or steampunk adventurers!

Suitable for everyday wear & certain to suit a wide range of outfits, the canvas shoes feature a buckled strap to the top of the foot ensuring a secure fit, and a gorgeous floral patterned inner. Textile upper and inner, synthetic sole.
They are really comfortable - I have been wearing the prototype pair #1 for a long time now and I have to say the quality of the shoes is superb!

The pair is size 7 UK / 40 EU.

They are available for purchase in my etsy shop.

The Roaring Twenties!

Hey guys and gals, I'm happy to announce I will be setting up my stall
at The Gatsby Club - Glasgow's dedicated 1920's themed club night on 18th of February!
I'm SO excited to have an opportunity to present my jewellery in such magnificent entourage! ♥


The theme of the night is St. Valentine's Day Massacre- here's some info from The Gatsby Club website:

Throughout the 1920's mobsters engaged in street battles over issues of control. Gang warfare reached its climax in the St. Valentine's Day Massacre. On February 14, 1929, seven men were killed in a Chicago garage by five unknown men wearing police uniforms. Witnesses were unable to establish their identity, and the coroner's jury did not find sufficient evidence to prosecute anyone. Al Capone was blamed for the Massacre, even though he was in Florida at the time. To this day, the perpetrators' identity remains a mystery...

With this in mind think gangsters and molls, cops and robbers, vamps and vixens, Al Capone, black and white movies, and hidden identity!

Venture within the opulent, lavish period surroundings of Glasgow University's Debates Chamber, and wet your whistle with The Gatsby Club's exclusive range of cocktails! Sit back and enjoy a variety show of music-hall comedy, singers, burlesque acts and more, hosted by those caballeros of cabaret, The Creative Martyrs! (A full line-up will be announced in due course along with some other surprises expected on the night!)

After the show, take in Gatsby's own fabulous house band, before The Man in Tweed spins records from the early 20th century to modern, era-inspired numbers, keeping toes tapping into the small hours as you're borne ceaselessly into the past!

I ask you: HOW AWESOME IS THAT?! Awaken your inner flapper and go check out the facebook event and The Gatsby Club website for details and tickets!
