A badly timed new obsession…


With just 2 days until The Handmade Expo, My Creative Space is supposed to be all about market preparation. There has been a lot of finishing touches on stock, making signs and planning presentation. Here are the photos I planned to share.







Then yesterday I saw this and immediately I just knew I had to give an Egyptian coil bracelet a go! It’s not quite finished, but a new obsession has begun. I am dreaming of copper and proper silver versions, learning how to oxidize, hammering techniques........ Do you think I have a short attention span??




Check out some other creative treasures over at Kootoyoo.

  1. No, not a short attention span, just a common crafters affliction; CADD. Craft Attention Deficit Disorder.

    I have had it for as long as I can remember. I think there should be a support group.

    Everything looks lovely, by the way. ;)
