Petrichoralia: where jewellery dreams are made of concrete

It didn't surprise me at all when she started her own jewellery collection and launched Petrichoralia with her husband, their shop on Etsy. This is the first time I venture out and get someone else involved in a blog post, and I couldn't feel in safer hands. It has been such an enjoyable process to learn more about how it all started and even create some jewellery myself! With a lot of help and guidance I made the ring in the picture below (well, one like it!) and I cannot tell you how many compliments I have received.

But without further ado, here are some of the questions I asked her.

DIY chicken art for hen weekend

My friend Daisy is getting married in a couple of months, and this weekend we celebrated her hen weekend in Bath. Ruth and Anna, the two bridesmaids, did a truly amazing job organising a weekend for all of us to meet and get to know each other better and give Daisy a weekend to remember.

This little art project was part of it. We were asked to create a picture of a chicken (one of Daisy's favourite animals) and write a message for her on the back. We could choose anything we liked, from photography, collage, a drawing...
