I'm seeing stars

so recently I have been experimenting with other materials such as stones and I have to say... why have I not done this before! its so much fun especially working with the star shaped pearls that I brought from at IJL  my current pieces are now up for sale and has already been brought! so I better buy more stars! :D

My Inspiration for these pieces are from latest trends this AW 2011

Dolce and Gabbana AW 2011
So far I am loving the starry prints because its a lot more playful and can also be worn for a more formal look

hopefully I will be buying some more stars in different colours soon to play with!

New Listings April

So sorry I havent been able to update for a while cos I'm recovering from food poisoning :( its the first time I've ever had it and its soooo horrible! going to be really careful with cooking food next time :P

anyway! now that I'm almost good as new I have been making up more of my little creations along the lines of the sea life collection :) they are all now listed up on my Etsy Shop and there will be more to come!

here are the newbies of April so far!

Flippy Flappy Gold Fishy 

Flippy Flappy Gold Fishy Blue


Charming Frog Prince

so This Dashing Prince isn't really a Sea Critter but he was just too darn cute to ignore! Inspired by the fairytale The Princess and the Frog and made one especially for my friend Frayer for her birthday :D

One for the Easter Holidays! -Cutie Yellow Bunny Earrings
So its the Easter Holidays coming up i thought I would make some bunny earrings for the occasion :) 

You might have seen on my Facebook page that i had made one for my best friend Angela for her birthday present which she requested a bunny necklace of the same colour with the letter A which I added to make it even more unique for her.

side project :)

hello everyone!

sorry i haven't updated in a while.. just been really busy visiting family over the past few weeks! I've begun very slowly moving my things out back to my parents house and when i say slowly I've been packing my suitcase each time with my things and getting on a 2 hour train to Winchester bit costly but I thought i might as well since I'm coming down. I wont be moving until June but since this year has gone by so quickly! I thought June really isn't that far away!

during my time away I have done a few miniature sketches of ideal Cutie necklaces and Earrings

I would really appreciate feedback from you guys about neck ware actually because at the moment I am selling suede cord necklaces and had a thought if i should also sell chain necklaces or give the option to the customer which they'd like when they make a purchase :) of course it will all be the same price :)

Hope everyone is well!!!

A day of moulding

(in the making process ready for baking)
Today has been very productive as I have started my new collection 'Cutie Sea Life' yes i know lots more Octopi but I have made my Octopi for a trial I am doing for JI JI KIKI lets hope my little creations will find new homes!!

heres a photo of them all together and complete! in my opinion they all look like smarties all together!!
colours of the rainbow (almost)

 and here is the newest addition to the Cutie family! Cutie Goldfish! unfortunately i have run out of sterling silver finding so i could not attach her to a necklace

now as for my inspiration for the 'Sea Life' range is funny enough all came up from watching finding nemo :) I've always enjoyed watching that movie and have a real craving for watching it today! I remembered that trip i took to Bristol aquarium last year and hopefully plan to make another one soon to look at all the pretty fishes. will give me more inspiration when i go there! last time I went I brought myself a little booklet and flicking through it now has suddenly given me a burst of ideas!!! just wish that I can work faster into making these little creations! will have to plan all these out in my next day off!! 

will soon list my little Cutie Goldfish once my Sterling Silver finding make their way through the post! 
I buy most of them online since the main Supply shop I go to is Winchester and since its two hours away from where I live currently. I don't really make the trip often :P luckily World of Beads has an online store so I can shop to my hearts content without paying for a train ticket!! 

note to self: buy more fimo!

Support Japan - My new Purchase

just a quick update literally as its now 11.26pm in the UK 

my heart goes out to those who have suffered in Japan and I pray for their health and safety. browsing through my Etsy Team I caught my eye on a particular seller who has produced an Item which all the proceeds will go to the Red Cross Little Honey pie headbands there is a selection of two different coloured bows one white and one red 

I've just purchase the Red bow. my money will help the cause but it will definitely make a difference if you help too! 


What I'm Working on Now 16/03

For a while now I've been taking a  break on my Jewellery so I can see if any of my other products will sell and so far I have struggled to promote them. guess not a lot of people are aware of me yet. I have joined a team on Etsy called Strut your Stuff which has been very helpful! I've met other designers who have similar problems and by linking/following each other has been the best method of getting yourself out there! if you havent already you must go visit my shop!

cutting to the chase....

I'm currently focusing my work on one project at the moment which is my Octopi theme. They have been very popular amongst my friends and I am currently making a little selection of Octopi necklaces in all different colours slowly developing this little collection. here is a few of my current octopi that are on sale now in my Etsy shop!

Nice to meet you!

After a few days of consideration I decided to make a blog for other to keep up to date with my work and news of some shape or form, however, I must say I wont be able to do this everyday since I have a full time job (dont we all?) but I will try my best!

so anyway cutting to the chase.... others may know that I have a little Brand TrueCutie hence the name of this blog but if you are new then I will fill you in on the details :)

TrueCutie all began in January 2011. Before that I have always planned to create my little creations and i must give a huge Thanks for the support of my friends and a even bigger thank you to my boyfriend Ray who made this all happen :) if it wasnt for him It would have been a longer process and a kick up the butt to shift and start on this new adventure to the land of Jewellery Making!!
