13-year-old Mongolian Huntress and Her Golden Eagle

 The photographer, Asher Svidensky, who took these wonderful photos of 13 year old Mongolian Huntress, Ashol-Pan, says 'watching her work was an amazing sight.'


The story of Ashol-Pan, the daughter of a 'particularly celebrated hunter' could be Mongolia's only female apprentice huntress, and Asher Svidensky's stunning photos can be found on the BBC website.

Inside & Outside

 A glimpse of some of the pieces I will be taking to Inside & Outside in May.






 I think this is the closest I have ever come to creating a collection!

The fabrics range from light voiles, cheesecloths and cotton to heavier denims, linens and wools. The ever changing Scottish climate has dictated 'a collection' that can be layered and suitable to be worn all year with tights, no tights, boots or sandals, coats and scarves!

More colours and styles to follow...



The Paper Hat Book

Remember Madame Alyn and her fetching hats?



Well, as of September, thanks to Alyn's new book, The Paper Hat Book, you too will be able to make your own stylish, recycled hat.

Black Denim Hat

 Another summer hat shown worn with a black cotton dress layered over a white cheesecloth dress.


I will have some photos of dresses, coats and jackets soon - just waiting for the sun to shine! But all can be seen, touched and tried on at Inside & Outside in May which Marion so kindly reminded me is soon!!

Still Here...

Busy creating and making.


The cotton hat is available in my shop now but the cheesecloth dress and denim coat will only be available at Inside & Outside in May.

Inside: Outside

Same title, different exhibition!  This Inside: Outside begins at the Open Eye Gallery, Edinburgh on 17 March and presents the beautiful work of my friend Paul Furneaux.

Sunlight Garden, Kyoto


This exhibition Inside:Outside, reveals Furneaux’s developments from 2D print works to 3D wall mounted sculptural objects incorporating print. He uses traditional Japanese woodcut techniques to explore landscape and interior space using a simplified language of abstraction, distillation and contemplation. - Open Eye Gallery
And Paul's Sunlight Garden is the perfect colour inspiration for my upcoming Inside & Outside collection.

Inside & Outside - An Interpretation

As you know I will be attending The Jewelry Story's Spring Presentation in May.


Looking to the theme and title of the presentation, Inside & Outside, I have decided to create a collection based on a few key pieces that can be worn inside and outside each other, in other words, layering.



So far I have a few dresses which are made from various weights of cheesecloth, cotton and linen


and, of course, I will be layering jackets and coats for those inside to outside days.


More to come...
