Unique Peek+Shop Jewellery @ Aubeebop+NicoleFerguson Pop Up

Ive recently discovered NEOS North East Open Studio = 10 day festival in Aberdeen and shire where you can visit artist’s and maker’s studios to gain an insight into their practice with the opportunity to purchase some of their work!

Today I visited Aubeebop Jewellery by Aubin Stewart and Nicole Ferguson Jewellery at 13 Hopetoun Grange Aberdeen.  Was little nerve wracking visiting the makers studio as I didn’t know what to expect but Aubin and Nicole couldn’t have been more lovely and welcoming! We chatted about both their journeys into jewellery making, and sourcing of materials for some of their pieces, including sea glass that makes up some of Nicole’s beautiful necklaces.

If your looking for a unique shopping experience, with a chance to meet the makers and understand   a bit more about the process in a super cute studio with a cup of tea would definitely recommend popping along.

Find out more information here at Aubin and Nicoles Facebook event page https://www.facebook.com/events/465168176977213/  and their individual sites http://www.aubeebopjewellery.com and http://www.nicolefergusonjewellery.co.uk.

November 2013 – 12 months of craft – Paper Fan Bunting

My new years resolution in 2013 was to try a different craft each month, the last few months of the year whipped by and then I got the gardening bug for 2014!  A little later than planned but here is my next new craft = Paper Fan bunting!


Beautiful fan bunting used to decorate our motorhome on a recent holiday!

One of my new favourite craft blogs is http://www.asubtlereverly.com = beautiful photography and craft ideas! A Subtle revelry is where I found the instructions for this beautiful fan bunting http://asubtlerevelry.com/accordion-bunting-three-easy-looks and wanted to share how I made mine xxxx


Started with some sugar paper and then drew Polka with marker on both sides




I then cut the larger piece into smaller squares and then folded each square accordion style!



Next folded the accordion paper in half and attachted the two centres

Lastly just made small holes in the top of the fan and threaded through some fine thread and fan bunting was ready!


Thanks A Subtle Revelry @asubtlereverly for sharing such lovely bunting!

Would love to hear if you have made paper bunting at home and how you got on.
