The Catkin Boutique Blog

Hello, my name is Nicky. For as long as I can remember I've loved designing and making things.

.

This blog is my online sketch book for my shop , showing how my ideas and products develop from inspirations, through the making process, to the final item.

If you have any questions or comments please send me a message. :D

here’s a sneak peek at my next print! It’s printed in gold, and the frame has been embroidered so it looks like a fancy frame. I think it would look better on a deep green colour, so when I’m next shopping I’ll hopefully buy some!

I made some resin moulds last night. There are quite a few different objects here. I used some of my own shrink plastic brooches (the dear and the butterfly) Which I’m quite looking forward to use- I want a green glitter dear brooch!

I also used a round wooden bead, as I want to be able to make dome ring jewels. And a rubber to make a tube shape for pendants. There’s also a button so i can make my own! I used the top of a stamp to get a nice square shape again for rings and pendants. And a sakura flower which I brought ( a bit naughty top turn into my own mould perhaps…oh well ;D )
