100th post!

Say hello to Random Quirks' 100th blog post!

Here are some photos of my stall at the market I went to on Sunday.



For more pics, check out the Random Quirks and Toast Rack Facebook pages.

And as promised, some after pics of the new jewellery I made for the market. Take a look. Coming soon to Random Quirks.


I am really looking forward to getting some daylight so I can take some better photos. 

And finally, a new arrival today. Some more of my new supplies. Can't wait to start creating!


Miniatures! Rings and stud earrings a go go!

New supplies and the first market of 2012!

And just in time for the market tomorrow! Apologies for the bad photo but lighting was bad and I want to get started making these into awesome jewellery! Will take a better "after" picture, promise.


Can't wait to see what kind of reaction they get. Hope you like them!

Feature Friday: Made by Daisy

Today's Feature Friday is about fellow Brit seller Made by Daisy. I am officially in love. I have never seen anything like these bangles and rings and can't believe that she hand makes them herself! 

There are two types of jewellery in her shop. Mainly bangles and rings, but there are two distinct styles going on. Kitsch and Vintage. I love both of them, but the resin hundreds and thousands (sprinkles to the americans) jewellery appeals to my quirky side. Very unique pieces, I definitely recommend having a browse in this shop. Here are a few of my favourites.


This looks good enough to eat! Definitely my favourite. I don't normally wear bangles but I think I would have to make an exception for this!


Very simple, but elegant. Love it.


Ideal for anyone girly. I love the texture to this bangle and ring set.

Don't forget to enter the Random Quirks giveaway! Closes at noon tomorrow UK time. Open Worldwide.
