so this is just a little video based on my inspirations and how i work as an illustrator and jewellery maker, its nothing exciting just me rambling on about myself ha! I have been emailed by a few people asking about process and how i over come artist/making block and were i get my stuff from so i decided to do a little vlog on it. Enjoy

in other news i have been really busy making bits and pieces and i have been working on a few commissioned pieces you can see some i have worked on over at cellardoor magazine, the lovely ladies over there asked me to do a piece on mothers and daughter and i was really chuffed to be asked so thank you and i hope everyone like it.
I have received a few emails from some wonderful people about RubyRaeLove, and i would just like to say i will be emailing you back very soon what with easter and bank holiday i have been so busy with everything my head is all over the place, this last week has been a wonderful mixed bag, i went for a lovely picnic yesterday with my family had a good old bit of tanning time too.
I am selling out of a lot of bits and pieces fast over at RRL and i have been discussing with my mum what sort of new things do i want to bring into my shop, and i have decided that i want to make a range of t-shirts nothing fancy simple home-made t-shirts, the designs and creations are totally under-wraps but i am really excited about them.
I am really missing all my uni friends today, it is the anniversary of my friend Ryan's death today, its been 2 years and it still hurts just as much as it did when it happened, he got caught in his car with his sister and other friends in a flash flood in cornwall, i miss him so much so i have been trying to focus on working really hard today, busying myself with stuff. And i have decided that i am going to head to norfolk in the next two weeks to visit my wonderful best buddy kelly for a catch up and hug. I am so looking forward to it.
I have been a little bit naughty and i spent half an hour watching TOWIE, whilst making head-dresses and order haha, i love watching it it always makes me laugh and cheers me up totally. Sorry if the video is a bit hit and miss i did about 7 all varying in length its just every time i tried to do one something got in the way so i rushed this one. But the denim jacket i am wearing is almost complete and so far i have used about 300 studs, i just need to do the front panel, and the large cuff i am wearing my sister picked up from a carboot sale yesterday for a £1 :)
The nails above are made by the wonderful heather from effies makeup box, i bought them from her shop they are hand-painted and a total bargain at £4, i have rubbish nails so i will be wearing these on a special occasion or i might frame them because they are so beautiful head over to her shop here.

  7. Aahh I've never seen you when I'm pootling about in East!
    What a great vlog, though. As an artist I go through phases when the inspiration just goes *kaput* and sometimes it's difficult to try and bring it back. Interesting and informative to see how you do it xxx

    Sorry to hear about your friend, hope you time away can help you clear your head a little, I can't imagine how you must feel.
    TOWIE is a guilty pleasure of mine too..infact any kind of reality tv.

  9. really interesting listen to hear how people find themselves in inspired. i'm very much the same with various notebooks, not as big as yours.
    would love to have a proper chat with you one day about everything and nothing. i too suffer from dyslexia and find jotting my ideas down a good way to stop me forgetting. you are an inspiration, never loose heart.
