Lucy's Designs Does Devon...

Very excited!  Thanks to the lovely Helen at Cove Garden Nursery a batch of my fabric brooches winged their way to Devon last week, which hopefully in the New Year will be joined by some of my bags!  You can check out the nursery online at Cove Garden Nursery, where you'll also find me and some other crafters featured on the Blog.

Must say thank you very much to Helen for a great opportunity!

P.S.  Don't forget to get in your last minute shopping orders if you want them posting before Christmas!

Fabric Flower Brooches

Finally found a few minutes to update, must do this more often!

Thanks to the fabulous people at Artsmix for two great events last week - nothing but hand-made goods available, stunning venue, really can't ask for more!  I also had a really lovely night at the Rams Head in Disley - very Christmassy!

Thought it was about time I posted a piccy of the brooches I do, I really wanted to have things on my stands that could be bought as a "little something" and actually they've proved to be popular.  Each brooch has a different button from the button box making each one slightly different, and they're available in all of the fabrics used for my bags, plus a few more!  Brooches are £4.50 each, drop me an email if you've still got stockings to fill!

Artsmix* Leeds, December 6th

Firstly apologies for the lack of updates, what with flu, graduation and fairs there's not been enough hours in the day!

Just a quick update as to where I'll be this week, you'll find me at the Rams Head in Disley on Friday night (strictly business of course!) and a fabulous Christmas market at The Loft in Leeds on Sunday.  This is a fabulous modern venue and promises to be a great day!!!

Also very excited to say I've been chosen to take my work to an exclusive shopping night at the Loft tomorrow evening, lots of invite-only guests from the industry so a good networking opportunity me thinks!

Here's the details of The Loft markets if any of you can come along

Out and About...

Another weekend out and about, this weekend you'll find me at Sylvia roberts Guide Hall in Heald Green, Cheshire (November 21st, 10-4) and Warwickshire Exhibition Centre for the first Contemporary Craft Shopping Experience (November 22nd, 10-4).  This promises to be a really good day with top quality hand-made products from all areas, so if you're in or around Warwickshire (just near Leamington Spa to be precise) then come get some Christmas shopping done!!  There's only 35 sleeps to go!

Silver Rings

Hidden away on the Portfolio page of you'll find this image of my rings, thought it was time to bring them out!!!

Those that know me will know I'm something of an art history geek, and when all things Rococo took over me this is what was produced!  They're all hand-made by me and I still make them to order (and to most designs) so feel free to drop me a line for any more info on them, my piercing saw is starting to feel a little lonely!!

New Bags...

A couple of pics of my latest bags...the girly pink one's been really popular but I just love the scarlet red feathers, nice and conspicuous!!!  Very soon I'll be putting up the fabric brooches too, very popular with us button-lovers!!

Welcome to Lucy's Hand Made Designs Blog. I'll be featuring my own creations in my regular posts on here, as well as featuring items that appeal to and inspire me. In the next few weeks I'll be featuring at craft markets in the Cheshire area, I'll post regular updates here as to where I'll be, so feel free to come along and say hello.

This first item is a hand made felted green clutch bag, embellished with a variety of buttons and green feather trim. The bag is fully lined and measures approximately 10" x 6"

This, along with all my other items is available from my web site If there's something you want making but you don't see it on the site, then please contact me and I'll be more than happy to help.
