Etsy Update/ Pompeii

I've added a couple more pieces to my Etsy shop this week, though I've still not had time to photograph the Alice in Wonderland ones and get them up - I'll do that soon, I promise. 
I've also sold 2 necklaces this week - I felt so proud! Once exams are over I'm going into Little Rachael Overdrive to promote the range and hopefully dedicate a lot more time to it. I'd do it for a living if I could! I love sitting making the jewellery and would wear every single piece myself! (a lot of the necklaces I've intended to sell have ended up on me instead... Woops. :-) 

The Singer Sewing Machine necklace is one of my favourites and is coupled with a little silvertone pair of scissors: it's so adorable! I've made one for myself and another two identical to sell. Other new items include the cute bike and penny farthing charms! I've made one each of these for myself too: I can't help it, I love 'em.

I'm really missing Italy - especially now we're fully into Exam mode at work. The first Exam starts on Monday and it's Year 11 English! Usually we get a quiet start and build-up to the exam season, but not this year, they're throwing us in at the deep end! Everything is sorted and organised though, so I'm not worried. Now Maths is another issue all together!

I realised that when I was talking about Italy and how amazing it was to visit Pompeii, I never actually posted any pictures. The photographs really do NOT do the place justice, and you have to visit the site itself to get the true awe of the place. I took hundreds of photographs that day - here's a very small selection:

Mount Vesuvius overlooking Pompeii

 2000 year old artwork - incredibly preserved.

 The Temple of Apollo

Me, standing in front of the Temple of Isis
An incredible mosaic

Jeans - Dorothy Perkins. Cropped T-Shirt - H! by Henry Holland. Cardigan and Shoes - Primark. Necklace - Dalaman Airport.

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
