A busy Summer so far...

I really cannot believe how fast the time is flying - and even, how little is getting done every day because of this odd {and very real, let's pretend} time-warp that's occurring. I'm not sure if it's a world wide phenomenon, or just in my little pocket of the West End...but anyway - I have *finally* got a moment to stop in and update this neglected little space with what I have been up to... thank heavens! ;)

First of all, 'I' has been 'we', really, as my lovely boyfriend Mister Bell was with me for the last two weeks - feverishly working on finishing his AMAZING new collections of jewellery, ready for me to style and photograph, and then get ready to launch his new DesireLines online shop!

Above are some sneak peeks of his work in progress...I just love watching him work...

It is all very nearly there and ready to launch...so, if I were you, I would be watching this space for an announcement any day now! I am really so amazed and proud of him...and I am sure you will all love the work as much as I do...


Things have been busy for me in the workshop too - and after a big push to get the brooches I had been working on finished for the Scottish Gallery 'Glasgow Girls ' exhibition* opening {which was lovely! So much nice work and great to catch up with so many old friends}, I was catching up with orders and am planning new designs for the coming weeks.

These new brooches have sparked some new ideas for me, so stay tuned for spin-offs from the large Magnolia brooch {bottom}...whose perforated silhouetted cameo form will surely be cropping up in similar form elsewhere, and the Laburnum brooch, whose tight and curved buds are inspiring many a lovely and long necklace...even some earrings, too.

We actually had a wee splurge on some new tools last week - something I hadn't done in an AGE! So I am really excited to get cracking with those and see what new things they can allow me to create. I can't wait!!

In short, there are a huge number of things in the works - so many projects I want to get under-way. I can't wait to share them with you...so really, I hope this time-warp-glitch sorts itself out very, very soon ;)

Back soon with DesireLines news! {yay!}

p.s. I did find the time to watch Junebug the other day, which was an absolute treat - Amy Adams performance was utter perfection...watch it if you can.

p.p.s . I have Tony Takitami to watch tonight...has anyone seen it yet? Looks lovely...

* the exhibition runs from the 3rd of June to the 27th...so please do pop along if you can!
