''This week I have mostly been making.......

....gold and red.''

These are by far the most sumptuous versions of my cuffs and brooches but the pictures are so disappointing.
The red is deep, deep, shimmery, subtle so I have chosen the pictures on the basis of colour not sharpness.


I just wanted to ask you dear reader, to ask all your blog friends,

to leave me your wrist size and preferred width of cuff
on my survey post which you can click here to visit.
I think to be a valuable survey it has to have about 100 participants.
If you have already done it, thank you, and please leave a comment here instead.
I love to hear from you.
I am doing a craft fair on Sunday if anyone lives nearby pop along to The Old School, Ulnes Walton near Leyland.
Porky and Blodwen will be there.

I would wear one on each wrist and feel like wonderwoman! I'm so in love with your color combos and material use, glorious!

Robyn said...

More beautiful rich colours! These new cuffs are gorgeous!

Wow Jackie these are brilliant - I really love them - I will enter your survey - I have just measured my wrist and am alarmed by how much it measures!!! It doesn't look big!!!

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

If only Edward and I could visit The Old School tomorrow! Have fun!

Gina said...

Hi Jackie. Hope the craft fair goes well. I am going to the K%S on saturday, it's a yearly tradition with my mum!

They're truly scrumptious! Looks like a coach trip to your fair could be called for. Best of luck.

Jackie,Just found your blog and have spent a lovely hour looking at your work. My wrist measures 7 inches or 18cms. although just watched s.c.dancing and they are wearing wristbands on their arms above the elbow, which looks nice. Just an idea.Just missed the craft show, what a pity as we came through Leyland today!Sue R.

They are lovely cuffs. Wish I were close enough to see them.

Victoria said...

These look like they should be worn by kings and queens, they are so rich, sumptuous and elegant looking. Beautiful!

Micki said...

These are so beautiful.

hi, I'am hopping from teresa to tricia to you! Your werk is stunning and original! It is amazing how you match the colours and details, every inch is worth to discover. I am from Holland, so I only have a measure in cm - it is exactly 15,5 cm. and an extra width of 4,5cm. seems me ok. I don't like them tightly.
Wish you a lot of succes with this market research. xDorie

My last comment sounded awful...not meant to, Jackie!

MaryAnn said...

Beautiful cuffs and brooches. Left a comment on the other post. And then thought should I leave one here. Love reds, burgundy and blues.
