Pretty Pretty Skulls

Ok so I’ve been truly terrible in keeping up to date but it’s a new year and a new beginning – plus I’ve been busy!

Following my last blog back in July I disappeared off on a mammoth trip around Paris, NYC and Vegas filming for a National Geographic series but alas there was no time for shopping or scouring for vintage goodies. I did have a good time though, although a bit exhausting and we got to interview Mr Donald Trump himself in Trump towers.

Then my documentary series with Mr Attenborough First Life came out. It looked fantastic but less fantastic looking was the show before that accompanied it, Attenborough’s Journey featuring none other than moi looking very bossy and sweaty in the wilds of Oz and Canada!

This is us filming in Oz – and yes that is me looking rather fetching in shorts!

Now my time is taken up thinking up stories about mythical creatures and creating fantasy worlds for a project which I really hope gets off the ground and it’s got my artistic thoughts flowing once again! I also spent some time in Marrakesh and picked up some beautiful ornate solid silver coins which I’ve been using in my latest creations.

Thanks for everyone who turned up to Olympia Hotel Fair last weekend – it was like a little party in my corner! It was great. Latest news is that I hope to get up and selling on ASOS Market soon so watch this space. Sonia Allen will be doing make up for the shoot and singer Danger Mouth will be modelling my goodies. Meanwhile young budding photographer Katie Blanch will be using MV pocket watch statement pieces for a fun Alice in Wonderland shoot.

Also Atom Heart, a new shop opening up in North Wales, will soon be stocking Mistress Vintage so all you Welsh vintage lovers can get your hands on my goodies.

So time for a new leaf and a new look. I am finally going to take Mistress Vintage in the direction I’ve been wanting to go for some time. Out with the girlie and in with more vintage and an edgier feel. I will still be making my working watch and charm bracelets and the odd one off girly piece when it takes my fancy but now Mistress Vintage will be producing more vintage cluster necklaces, scrumptious multi chain bracelets and I will be now promoting my new skull collection! Skulls may have been popular for some time now but I can’t get enough of them and hopefully my customers will feel the same too!
