A bit about me...


Since starting this blog I feel as if I wanted to tell people a bit about me rather than just show you things I’ve made. (don’t worry if your not interested in anything about me, I do still have something to show you – just skip this next bit!)

So… I’m Kate, I’m 24 years old and live with my parents, my boyfriend of 4 and a bit years Adam and our Jack Russell, Flo (she’s super cute- as you can see)

I work in the beautiful city of Cambridge for an Insurance Company- might sound a bit dull but I really enjoy it.  As you’ve probably guessed in my spare time I like making things! I’ll try my hand at anything really- I’m not always very good at a lot of things but I still give it ago. I love music- I find I can’t craft with out something to sing along to! I also like reading and going to the cinema, also I like nothing better than sitting in the sunshine enjoying a nice cold glass of Pinot!

Ok so enough about me… today I want to show you one of my jewellery pieces I made. I especially love these because green is my most favourite colour. Anyway, I made the necklace using the base of a charm bracelet but cut the toggles off and added links for the suede thong. I absolutely love all these different shades of green- and the best bit is I used up a lot of odd beads I had left over from other things.

I liked it so much I had to make a matching bracelet. I also love charm bracelets for the sound they make, Adam jokes that when I wear mine he can always hear me coming!! Most of these gorgeous beads were bought from Bijoux Beads – they have one of the best selections of beads which you can either buy singularly or in packs, so they are great for any make.  I also had to use some of my favourite Swarovski Crystals to give it extra sparkle. This necklace is such a great focal piece and so versatile you could wear it day or night!


I have been overwhelmed by how many people have read and showed an interest in my blog over the last week. I also have had a lot of new followers on twitter (@flutterbyboo) so I wanted to give something back to all of you! I’m giving one lucky winner the chance to win either this necklace or bracelet, depending on personal preference! All you have to do is leave me a comment below – a winner will be chosen at random next Tuesday (9th August). 

Thank you once again so much for reading.

I’ll be back tomorrow to share with you a man card- cringe!

Also I wanted to apologise for the photos of my card yesturday - they were awful, so I have uploaded some better ones!

Until then, have a lovely day.



  1. Love the jewellery! I asked Kate last Christmas to make a pair of earrings to match a bracelet that I had bought for my mother in law to be. She absolutely loved them. everyone should comment to try and win the bracelet or necklace; the jewellery Kate makes are lovely. I shall be putting an order in very soon to make my mother in law happy!! Also I may treat myself :p Thank you Kate! xx
