Getting crafty with KARMA jewellery

This week I was invited to take part in a Jewellery making workshop in The Black Box by the folks at KARMA Jewellery .  If you haven't heard of KARMA they are a Belfast based company who's ethos  of uplifting and inspiring the recipients of their product also comes with the benefits of knowing you are helping the community when you make your purchase. 10% of all their sales goes to helping out local charities,  all of which is detailed on their website.

Halloween spookfest.

Whilst I love Halloween I will admit I'm usually fairly lacidasical in my approach leaving everything to the last minute.

Above are some designs I was testing out (the fingerprint being a personal favourite) and below you'll see some Water tattoos I have purchased and some recent clients.
