I am currently very busy with my university work, and with my new part time job and Punky pins. I love my job at Punky pins and it inspires me greatly. I love to see all the new designs as they come into production. I am going to start drawing some sketches out of new designs for my own jewellery and some maybe to show the people at punky pins to see what they think of my designs. In the mean time i still have a lot of jewellery to offer on my Folksy site. Which i keep up to date regularly please check it out!! http://folksy.com/shops/Catherineshieldsstudio
This is a pacman bracelet I designed at it is available on my shop for just £4.00!!

These are small button stud earrings. At just 3.00.
This is a pair of classy pearl earrings for just £2.00!
I also do a small collection of mens bracelets! This bracelet is only £2.00.

I have been working hard doing this inspiration sketchbook. I have really enjoyed collecting lots of things that inspire me. And drawing from them taki photos creating fabric textiles from them and just creating and adapting things from them. I am going to have a go at styling which I am going to research more before I do. I am also going to more artist research through different areas of textiles. If you can recommend any please let me know. I am also experimenting with different embroidery types i am currently working on stumpwork which i am really enjoying as embroidery is one of my favourite parts of textiles. Thank you let me know why you think.

I have been working on some drawing in my sketchbook. With mainly flowers and nature. I have done a lot of observational drawing. I have also collected some images together to create colour palettes and mood boards and images that I think reflect the flowers flow and colour and texture. I am going to start to draw other things and going to do some more larger pieces on larger separate pieces of paper. I'm going to try and do some styling with various ornaments and objects.
