New Earring Jewellery Collection

I've been busy making some more earrings. 

The Queen of Heart earrings seem to have proven quite popular so I've made some more of those, along with the usual Tibetan Silver Moons, Pentagrams and Crosses. 

Also, I've made a couple of new designs this month including the Large Butterfly Earrings and the Bead and Silver Feather Drop Earrings.

All are available to purchase on my Ebay. (Click Here).

Sandstone Brewery: New Pump Clip - Emerald

New Pump Clip design now complete for Sandstone Brewery's latest brew called 'Emerald'.

This is a one off brewed batch that was made to celebrate this years British Hop Harvest. 

It is a light copper coloured traditional beer made with fresh harvested hops that haven't been through the drying process resulting in a completely different and fresher flavoured beer.

One cask of Emerald will be available at Chester Beer Festival (Friday 26th to Saturday 27th October 2012)

A unique beer not to be missed!

30th Birthday: Mad Hatters Piss Up In A Brewery

I had a great time last night with good friends to celebrate my 30th. I decided I would like to do something a bit different with it being a milestone birthday so it all started with an idea of a 'Mad Hatters Tea Party' in the back garden.

Obviously with it being October, the weather was a bit crap so my other half suggested we have it in the brewery... And so the idea was born. A Mad Hatters piss up in a brewery!

As stressful as it was to organise, I did have fun coming up with ideas for the decorations and all was done for a fair price. I got an old colourful duvet cover and made bunting by simply cutting triangles out and then safety pinning them to some thick rope. (I'm not much of a sewer!)

I got a nice cheap cardboard cake tier stand and managed to pick up a box full of cups and saucers for only 20p each from a random yard sale while out and about in Llangollen and I picked up various other bits and bobs from the pound shops and Ebay. Finally and most importantly we had a keg of Opal Beer by Sandstone Brewery on tap. Which shock horror, all got drank in 3 hours! Here's just a few pics from the night:
