3D Huichol Flower Earrings Tutorial

Time to share another beading tutorial. This time, it's a huichol flower pattern for earrings that have a '3D' look thanks to the raised centre and hanging petals.

Huichol workshops at Mestizo

Last weekend I was invited to Mestizo's Mexican Market in London to run a number of Huichol Jewellery workshops.
The sessions covered an introduction to the Huichol people and culture, the fundamentals of Huichol symbols and hand-on training on either a bracelet, necklace or ankle bracelet.

The event was great fun and we all went as a family. While I was running the workshops the girls were playing with their own bead set making their own kids bracelets.

Thanks Mestizo for inviting us and looking forward to future events!

If you haven't yet been to the Mestizo Mexican Market be sure to plan a trip next time you're in West London. They stock an amazing range of authentic Mexican arts & crafts and even loads of Mexican food. And, they're located right next to Mestizo Restaurant - so you can double up and have a great lunch or dinner. They're close to Euston Station, on Hampstead Road

Spring at last

And with Spring come new styles a colours.
Over the past few months I've been working on some new necklace styles and colours which I'm happy to share today. 
The first two are choker style, with vibrant striking colours and a range of linear or triangular patterns.
These following are looser in fit a cover more of the mid chest.
And finally, something a little different. Black with contrasting blue lines and a deep black but shiny onyx stone.
Would love to hear what you think.

Monarca earrings

Monarca earrings are inspired by the Monarch butterflies that come to my home state of Michoacan every year during their annual migration south from the US and Canada.

I have a number of standard colours; white, black and orange but as always these can be made in any colour of your choice - so don't hesitate to ask.

The Old Truman Brewery

Change of plans for this weekend's craft events. Due to exceptional circumstances Wahaca had to cancel the Day of the Dead festival, and also the Mexican craft market.

However, we're happy to say that we'll now be holding a stall at the Old Truman Brewery Backyard Market all day tomorrow - Saturday the 5th November.

If you're in the Brick Lane area come say hola!

Thursday 3rd November 2016: 6 - 10pm
Friday 4th November 2016: 6 - 10pm

There will be loads going on for all the family across all days, with street food, cultural events, live music, discussions, face-painting and, of course, a Mexican Street Market where yours-truly will be selling a wide range of Huichol inspired jewellery.

All the details and timings can be found here on Wahaca's website. We'll be there on all 3 days selling so feel free to come and say whenever, or, if you're looking for the timing of a specific event checkout the site.

The location itself is pretty stunning, home to one of the most vibrant street-art scenes in the world.
