My Challenge for 2018! It's All About Ear Candy!

Let me start by wishing your all a very belated 'Happy New Year' - I really do hope you all had an enjoyable Christmas and New Year!  It was a busy time from September for me and I must say I have been blown away by the amount of orders I have received from everyone.

An update on what has been happening at MP HQ!

So since the start of 2017, I have been a busy bee! Not just with making my enamel jewellery but I have a load of builders at my house and so it has been a little chaotic. The good news is that I will have a lovely new workroom which I will gladly show some pictures of next time I blog!  So with all this going on, I decided after much thought that I would take some of my creations and expand on a few of my designs. Up until now I have just made..stuff!
