We’ve got that tropical kind of feeling

You know the one…….gorgeous warm breezes……..sand in your toes…….a ukelele playing in the distance…….floaty summer dresses and the smell of frangipani.

Here at Cupcakes we heart summer.  I was so excited to find these fab shell necklaces that come direct to use from Fiji.

A present that works a charm!

This afternoon, I handed this gorgeous bracelet over to its new owner.  It was hard to let it go, as I have grown to love it as I worked on it but I am sure that the grandmother who is about to receive it for her birthday will cherish it as well!  The empty frame is for a baby-to-be who’s photo will take pride of place in this bracelet in June!

If you would like your own heirloom bracelet, just email me at michelle.dube@bigpond.com and I would love to give you a quote.  Prices for this gorgeous bracelet start at $55.00

What’s new for 2009!

 

 

I am really looking forward to this year.  I have so many ideas for gorgeous jewellery for your little cupcakes.  To start the year off, I have just finished these fun and fabulous headbands.

These fun headbands are made with a shiny pink button and finished with a sparkly swarovski crystal.  The headbands are covered in fabric and are really comfortable to wear!   The headbands are just $8.00 in the cupcakes store and there are tonnes to choose from!

I love using buttons at the moment.  I think they are really fun and pretty.  I have  used tiny covered buttons in these great rings and hairclips

Happy Silly Season!

Well, I have just had a wonderful time making lots of gorgeous pieces for little cupcakes to open on Christmas morning.  It has been so much fun designing these special pieces and is such a privilege to be able to make something for your special children.

The last of the packages have been despatched so I finally have some time to post some photo’s of my latest pieces.

Lots of love,

Off to the market again

It’s busy busy busy here because Cupcakes Jewellery will be at the heritage craft market on Sunday, 6th October.  I love this market because it is all handmade and handcrafted products.  I seem to always manage to spend my profits on everyone elses gorgeous things.

Anyway, I’d love to see you there if you can make it.  I’ll have my table full of cute as a button hair clips, matching earrings and rings as well as my usual bracelets and necklaces.

See you then,

Michelle

Spring is in my heart and on my head

And Spring arose on the garden fair,
Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth’s dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.
~Percy Bysshe Shelley, “The Sensitive Plant”

 

Flower garden headband – $24.00

“Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair 
and let us huddle together as darkness takes over 
We are at home amidst the birds and the trees, 

for we are children of nature.

–  Susan Polis Shutz

Butterfly headband – $14.00

 

These gorgeous headbands are available in different colours and combinations.  Email me at michelle.dube@bigpond.com for more information or visit the cupcakes shop by clicking the link to the right.

From one mum to another.

I just love to work with other mums in business.   At Cupcakes we are always on the lookout for interesting, original pieces we can use in our jewellery, especially those made from other mums working from home.  I fell in love with these little wooden pendants and brooches that come all the way from Suffolk in England.

 

I have matched the little wooden pendants with lots of swarovski crystals and catseye beads.  They are then finished on pretty satin ribbon and include an extention chain.

I have lots more listed in my store (click the link in the blogroll) or email me at michelle.dube@bigpond.com
