Fancy New Website!

And finally, after many a false start, I found a website builder I was happy with and created a website for my jewellery in less than a week, which I consider quite good going.

Please pop by and have a look and let me know what you think.  Be sure to check out the sketchbook, its great fun to flick through.
So there was I thinking I'd got the website side of things sorted until I started reading about SEO and what it takes for your site to get found by Google. At least I know what I'll be doing for the rest of the evening, best put the kettle on before I get stuck into this whole new challenge!

If anyone else is thinking of making their own website, I highly recommend having a look at It was a really easy site to use, you have complete freedom over your design and the support is also very good.  Best of luck!

Fancy new camera


 My ancient camera finally gave up the ghost and conked out recently which I was quite sad about, but it gave me the perfect excuse to splash out on a fancy new Digital SLR camera! Now I just need to learn how to use the bloomin' thing, which is a lot more involved than I realised. Apertures, depth of field, shutter speed, ISO, I've got to learn a whole new language to get the most out of this serious bit of kit,  but here are a few guinea-pig shots of the workbench to get me started.
