Having a small person in my life has changed lots of things. I have mentioned a few changes to the sources of inspiration. Here is another. My favourite thing about children's television. The Tittifers from In the Night Garden, just them, not the entire show, I just love the few seconds per episode that they appear...

This was the best picture I could find on the interwebs - the colours are much, much more vivid... and they are just so beautifully weird : )

I have just made a few new neckpieces in what I have been referring to as 'Tittifer Pink'...


After posting this I arrived home to find a parcel from my dear friend and unnatural jewelling co-conspirator Lauren Simeoni. In it was a bunch of fabulous fake frou-frou in Tittifer Pink! An exact match to the pieces I have been making. Oh, happy serendipity. Below is an excitedly taken mobile phone picture of a neckpiece and blooms. 

And a more formal studio shot of one of the completed neckpieces...
