I’ve been experimenting with something new over the last few months and I’m happy to say I think I’ve cracked it!
If you’re in the UK, you will have had a pretty disappointing summer so far. We had a few days of heat and sunshine but that now feels like a distant memory – did it actually happen?? Anyway, it looks as if we will have to inject our own fun and brightness into our days and that’s what my new range of knitted cotton jewellery is all about.
The range is made with funky vibrant colours of cotton yarn and silver plated findings to create knitted earrings and bangles. It’s colourful and light to wear and easy on the purse strings – allowing you to mix and match different colours. The chunky knitted bangles are particularly suited to this – I think three bangles in contrasting colours creates the perfect laid back summer look!
For the duration of the summer, you can get 10% off my new knitted jewellery (and indeed anything in my Etsy shop) with coupon code SUMMER2015. Simply use the code at checkout before 31 August 2015.
Here’s hoping for a brighter summer!
I’m appalled at my lack of blogging lately, and will endeavour to bring you more regular updates of the world of Emma Dickie Design this year!
I am still going through a gradual redesign of my shop – streamlining my products and clearing out some of my older designs in order to make way for new goodies. (You can have a peek at my clearance items right here…)
At the end of last year I created my first ever Fair Isle hat and this will be listed in my shop shortly. It wasn’t nearly as difficult as I thought it would be and so thrilling to see the pattern begin to come to life as I knitted each round. If you’ve been intimidated by Fair Isle knitting in the past I urge you to give it a try and see for yourself just how easy it is!
I’m also still experimenting with metalwork – I got a new drill and hammer for Christmas so expect to see some new metalwork jewellery soon (although I have kept the first pair of earrings for myself)!
As Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, I’ve been making a lot of Cross Stitch Heart Earrings, and was delighted when a pair of them was featured in the latest issue of Sew Magazine!
So, that’s the latest news from me… but I’m hoping to be back again soon with another update!
