Note from shop owner Hello! I've just recently found out that I'm pregnant and am in my first trimester so my head is up my bum and when I find the energy to get up sadly the last thing on my mind is crafting. I'm getting terrible ratings because of this and have decided for the time being to put my shop on holiday until my brain clears. Any orders that have been placed have been made and should be on thier way to you. Please get in contact if they haven't arrived or if you are desperately after a Blue Cherry item. Thanks!

Purchased on 1st August 2014 and never received, despite the payment being taken from my bank account. I have made attempts to enquire about the delay and I am still awaiting a response. Nothing as yet....not happy!! How do I get my money back? Please note I did not want to leave a star rating but it would not post the review unless I did. Very poor indeed!

About

How it all began....

Blue Cherry Jewellery started way back in 2007, it originated as an overflow of my obsession for jewellery. I loved wearing strange necklaces, odd earrings and fun accessories but they were expensive to buy in shops, so being the crafty gal I am, I decided I make some.

I bought a simple jewellery making kit from Boyes that included earring hooks and jump rings and raided my craft supplies for anything that could be turned into earrings. I was hooked and went searching on the internet to see what else could be done. I found on Ebay these things called ‘Destash Grab Bags’ and ‘Gumball Jewellery’ which was a bag full of weird little plastic charms and pendants, ranging from normal cherries and strawberries to the more odd crayons and tooth paste tubes. I loved getting these bags full of little tiny things, playing with them, making jewellery out of them and wearing some of the jewellery.

But I needed money to feed my habit for tiny plastics, so while on my Ebay searches I found people actually sold their handmade Gumball Jewellery on Ebay and on other sites. I already had quite a collection of unused/unwanted jewellery that I’d made so I also began to sell on Ebay and I even set up a Myspace account dedicated to my jewellery.
The name Blue Cherry Jewellery was not my first idea. I wanted to be called “Smoggy Style” a bit tongue in cheek to match my weird jewellery. But my older brother Paul talked me out of it and helped me choose the name Blue Cherry and he even put together my original logo of a tattoo style cherry.

It was around this time that a friend introduced me to polymer clay, she saw my jewellery and said I should try making some bits out of this clay stuff. She’d made a sandwich and gave it to me (which I still own) and she also gave me a few packs of Fimo to play around with, a silver, a pink and a blue. I also went out and got a starter pack which had a couple of pinks, a red and a yellow. I then decided to get educated with this Fimo stuff, so back to the internet I went. I Googled a couple of things and found this awesome website called Craftster, a crafting forum website, and on there they had some really great basic tutorials for Fimo, cupcakes seemed the easiest. So I cranked out a couple of cupcakes (which again I still own) and instantly fell in love with them. And I guess I just took off from there!

I use the polymer clay Fimo Soft, cocktail sticks (detail work), sewing pins (Tiny detail work) Stanley blades, my trusty old battered pasta machine, chalk pastel (just baked look), a plethora of different sized brushes (for applying chalk dust, glazing, painting detail or even using the handle to make dents or donut holes) a toothbrush (texture), crumpled foil (texture again), my collection of handmade molds (Custard creams are quite hard to make!), cookie cutters, water based varnish, jewellery making supplies, jewellery pliers and super-duper glue (Plus a ton of other stuff too! That’s my basic kit!)

My pieces are completely hand made from Fimo, which, although non toxic, should be kept away from and out of the mouth. And small pieces are a given, so keep out of the reach of the young'uns!
