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 […]

British Craft Trade Fair 2018

In a few weeks time (holy crap so soon!!!) I’ll be back in Harrogate for the British Craft Trade Fair. Am I ready? No way near! But I’m on the case and working through my to do list steadily, quietly hoping everything will fall into place just as it did last year. I’ve got all […]

Whale Tail Necklets Now Available

Making whale tail necklets fom recycled sterling silver teaspoons in the studio in Kinghorn, Fife

My last blog post was all about whale watching in Kinghorn and how our oceanic visitor to the Firth of Forth inspired me last year to start making whale tail necklets. With the return of the whale(s) this year, we’ve had a really busy January here in Kinghorn with hundreds of whale watchers flocking to […]

Whale Watching in Kinghorn

Unique, handcrafted whale tail pendants made in Kinghorn from rare and recycled silver

Last year I started making whale tail pendants and they were a huge success. I initially made 5 from some very rare sterling silver teaspoons. They sold out almost immediately and this inspired me to make more. Each time I added new pendants to my online shop or showed work in progress on Facebook and […]

Happy New Year! Happy New Site!

Happy New Year! Happy New Site!

Well 2018 is finally here and so is my new website. I’ve been working away on this re-development since last year and it’s taken a little longer than expected, as these things inevitably do. But I’m so happy to announce going live today that I’m also announcing a Launch Discount Coupon too. If you place […]
