Wired Jewellery

I like to feature independent and new designers so this was the perfect company for me post about.

Wired Jewellery was created by Faye Woodward, 
featuring hand sourced, handmade and quirky designs.

Stuck for Valentines?
This makes the cutest valentines present, from the chalkboard collection, 
write a message for your loved one, or for a close friend.
The amount of fun you can get from this little chalk ring is incredible.

Or theres the stylish cross jewellery in a selection of colours.

Then theres the beautiful gemstone jewellery.
Pure show stopping statement jewellery. 
Also, how amazing are these rings!!

Then there is the super smart metal jewellery which adds character to any outfit.

The steampunk jewellery is interesting and intricate.

Then finally there is the childlike and creative wooden jewellery.

All prices are more then reasonable, Wired Jewellery is definitely one to check out.

Armley Mills

As we have an exciting REAL project with the museum, so fingers crossed.... 

It is one of the largest textile museum in the world.  
For more info that will tell you more then I ever could, visit:

Here are some interesting images from the museum.

Natural Legacy Exhibition:

For those unfamiliar with the demob suit it was given to the war veterans after the war as a thank you.
The fourties style three piece suit featured a double breasted suit jacket, a waistcoat with an unappealing lining and turn ups on the trousers.

 And the slightly disturbing images:
