New in the Shop Today – Brass Guitar Pins

Brass Pin - Guitar

I’ve just added a new Brass Pin to my online shop. It’s a tiny little guitar measuring just 4cm high and 1.5cm wide. It’s so goddamn cute! It’d make a perfect gift for any music lover or guitar player. I’m going to have to make one for myself as it’s so adorable. I made it […]

October is the busiest month…

Ey Up Lass - Yorkshire Phrases

What a month I’ve had – If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ll know all about it. The sleepless nights… As well as the time I’ve had to take off work this month to accommodate chicken-pox…The October break… and the possibility of getting selected for Jury Service (which thankfully didn’t happen). Around all of […]

I’ve just listed some new Copper Clouds and Festive Baubles in a new category called Copper Hanging Decorations. Go check them out. I’ve been making my Copper Clouds for years now […]

For the love of Type!

Hello again! If you’ve been looking at my Instagram feed lately you’ll have noticed that I’ve taken slight diversion from jewellery making of late and I’ve been working with recycled copper a lot. I mentioned in my last post that I’d started on a series of copper letters decorated with lots of different metal stamps. […]

Mind the Gap

Mind the Gap - New mixed metal pieces from Milomade

Before I became a parent I used to work flat out all year round, but would take a few weeks off here and there to travel with my partner. As a parent that had to change, not initially as babies are pretty easy going, but once nursery and school got in the mix, things became […]

The Hunt for the Devil’s Toenail

The Hunt for the Devil's Toenail

Every now and then it’s good to do something totally different, step away from the norm, challenge yourself and get out of that cosy comfort zone that you’ve been in for so long… I did just that recently when I took on an interesting brooch commission. All I was given initially was this very simple […]

Summer Holidays

Summer Holidays 2018

If you’re sitting at work daydreaming about blue skies and warm summer days by the sea, with the smell of BBQs in the air then you’ll know it’s time to start the holiday countdown. The countdown has started at Milomade HQ as I’ve been busy planning what I’ll be doing with my family over the […]

Experimental Earrings

New Periwinkle Studs from Milomade

I took a little bit of time out from my usual jewellery production last week as I had a pile of thin tapering strips of scrap silver on my bench. The scrap silver, something I would normally melt down, were the offcuts from long strips that I use to form my Seafoam Ring Bands. Instead […]

Street Art

Blackpool Graffiti

My recent visit to Blackpool had me wandering around the streets reminiscing. I loved every minute. I visited old haunts, had my lunch at the steps of the college where I studied photography, drove down the prom and spent a good few hours in The Regent hunting out some cool vintage stuff. When I lived […]

Woo Hoo – I’m back!

I'm back from BCTF 2018

So today was my first day back at work since I travelled down to Yorkshire for the British Craft Trade Fair. I got back to Scotland late last Wednesday, but as my son was still off school and I was totally exhausted from all that driving, socialising, working and catching up with friends, I thought […]
