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!

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.

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

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

There’s a bluebird on my shoulder.

Well, not quite on my shoulder, but certainly hanging around my neck!  I can’t wait until Spring to show you these gorgeous little Blue Bird pendants.   I just love everything to do with birds, and these ones bring such a happy feeling.

 

 

This little bluebird is made from glass and he is sitting on a little silvertoned nest.  The pendant includes a silvertoned chain and is available for just $12.00 from the cupcake shop.


Here are some more spring bracelet from Cupcakes Jewellery.

“Hearts and Flower” bracelet features gorgeous lampwork hearts, metal flower and butterfly and a cute jingly heart charm.

This spring bracelet features glass lampwork bird and heart, metal butterfly and flower and some czech crystals and catseye beads.

It’s a good hair day!

I love how a gorgeous little hair clip can totally transform a little girl from a wild child to sweet and innocent!

Here are a few of the latest clips from Cupcakes!

 

This gorgeous rose feels a bit vintage.  It is made from polymer clay and features a pale pink centre.

 

This little pair of matching roses and just perfect for spring.  Made from polymer clay they would also match perfectly with the big vintage inspired Rose clip.

 

These initial pins are made to order.  Wear one or wear more and you’ll never call her by the wrong name again!


I love hair combs.  They can be worn so many different ways.  If you little girl has fine hair, just pull it back into a pony tail and pop this one in the side.  This one is made from swarovski crystal sliders and is wire wrapped for strength.


Don’t forget, we love to custom make our jewellery, so if there is any you would like me to make just for your little cupcake, just email me at michelle.dube@bigpond.com
