Many of you may already know that I have another life – that of a web designer. I’ve been self employed since 2003 and have successfully run Eskymo New Media Design for over 10yrs (although I’ve not updated my website for a few years now). It’s been brilliant to be my own boss and work […]
Wow! I can’t believe a whole year has gone past since I was awarded a place on the Next Steps Programme put together by Fife Cultural Trust, Fife Council, Crative Scotland and Fife Contemporary Art & Craft. It’s been an amazing year full of hard work and lots of changes and developments for Milomade.
A customer approached me at the end of last year in the hope of commissioning me to create a few pieces of jewellery for her from some heirloom antique silverware she had.
Hello again! Remember me? I hope so – my website and shop have been offline for the whole of this year and I do apologise, but I’ve been very busy making lots of changes and improvements and now that my new site is live, I hope you find it more informative, easier to use and […]

I just got a lovely email from the BCTF with an attached invite for this years show. I recently registered with the BCTF as I’m hoping to do my first ever trade show with them in 2015. During the registration process I asked if I could be invited as a guest this year so that […]
I meant to post these images up last week after my jewellery lesson on the 29th January, but I didn’t get the time. So I’m posting them up now so that you can continue to see the development of my first ever locket prototype.
This week I’ve been meaning to practice cutting stitches into my copper using a graving tool to help hold my copper domes in place whilst soldering, as there is a risk that they will move as the solder runs and then be off centre for the holes I cut out last week. I would’ve had […]
I’ve hardly had any time at the bench this week, but yesterday, afternoon while Milo was napping, I snuck in and finished off the domes I’d made in my jewellery class last week.
