Busy In The Studio...


Hope everyone is well.

What's been going on in The Makings of Lea Lou studio? A lot of Christmas preparation is the answer.

As well as packing some orders and getting them shipped off, I've been looking into new ways of displaying my jewellery for the next craft fair. I'm thinking of fresh and striking business cards, lots of signage with all the different offers clearly displayed and making sets of jewellery (like the picture below).

The next few ways is going to involve lots of designing and festive outings! I will definitely keep you all up to date.

A Brooch Or Two

It's November, can you believe it? Hope everyone is feeling festive, I love the build up to Christmas. Christmas jumpers, chocolate, lots of food and festive celebrations, what more could you want!

Anyway I thought it would be nice to add a few more items to my shop closer to Christmas. So, I decided to make a few brooches from some of my original designs, which have now go live in the Makings Of Lea Lou shop today, woo! I was very excited for these to arrive in the post on Thursday. So below we have a lovely fox, a beautiful butterfly and a twitwooing owl brooch. For more pictures and details go have a little peek at my shop on Etsy.

A Unique Gift, For Men


The Makings of Lea Lou has launched the new wooden steam train cufflinks (pictured below).  The idea all came together when my grandad's 80th birthday was approaching. I wanted to make him something unique and wearable. My grandad is a huge lover of all things train related, and when I hear about or see a steam train I always associate this with him.

We all know Christmas is approaching (is it sneaking up on you guys too?) so how about you treat a wonderful man in your life to these lovely cufflinks, they make a great gift :)
