Halloween winner

Congratulations to Faye Billington who’s “Blood Brooch” is the winner of our Halloween jewellery competition.

We were very impressed with the drama of the blood drops and the clever use of polymer clay. It must look stunning on.

Faye has won a jewellery making bundle from Beads Direct worth over £100 – we look forward to seeing what she comes up with from that.

You can see the collection of bats and skulls and other scary items that made up the entries on our Facebook page.
