Jewellery is often the first choice for a special gift. It’s personal, beautiful, thoughtful. When you buy the perfect piece of jewellery, you know it. You see the sparkle in her eyes first and then the smile arrives. She might put it on straight away or carefully take it from the box and look it over, but you know when you’ve bought the best jewellery gift for Valentine’s and it’s a great feeling.
As a jeweller and a massive jewellery fan, who loves being given jewellery almost as much as making it, I think I am a good person to advise you on buying the perfect Valentine’s gift. So here’s my 5 point plan!

I’ve made jewellery to celebrate birth, symbolise marriage and honour bereavement. Jewellery marks all of our live’s landmarks and I believe it has a power all of it’s own. I love that my jewellery will be around long after I am dead and buried and it will carry it’s own story forward when I am silenced. Jewellery tells a tale.

When it comes to creative hobbies, and I’m promoting my jewellery making classes, I don’t just talk the talk. I also walk the walk. Or draw the draw. Or paint the paint. You get my drift? So most Wednesdays I toddle along to Sunny Bank Mills to Spinning Mill Life Class with the very talented Mel Davies and Kim Coley.

Mothering can come from many sources, our actual real life ‘tummy mummies’, our girlfriends, many women make up our tribe. I was very lucky to have two wonderful women supporting me throughout my second pregnancy of my lovely Arthur, my community midwife Gemma, and my inspiring doula Lindsay.
Women are amazing! So whether you are a mother or not, whether you celebrate Mother’s Day or even mourn a wonderful woman lost, let’s just take a moment to appreciate the relationships we have, and honour our many mothers.

As a creative person it is considered perfectly acceptable to collect lots of stuff. Some of the most striking creative spaces are rammed. Clusters of beautiful and interesting curios, sketches on the walls, inspirational finds and images everywhere. The creative mind is a busy mind…or is it?

Pink Butterfly is my own little jewellery haven, it’s a online retailer, a workshop and a school, it’s a small world, mainly just me but with a few other people who feed in with their expertise, mainly my photographer husband and my IT boffin type peeps who are kicking this here website into touch. I’ll show you what it’s like to work in such a teeny tiny business, the real deal, the late nights and the happy dance when a customer loves something you’ve made.
