Shiny and new

Craft, Photography

A lot has happened since my last post… way back before Christmas last year. In short, I’ve finished up my year’s internship in Samoa and have returned home for an extended break because there was a very real need to spend quality time with my family while making sure the rest of the plan is falling into place.

There is much to say about my time in Samoa, so I’ll keep that for a separate post.

For now, I want to venture into the new. Part of my holiday will be focused on taking my hobbies to another level and perhaps making something out of it. So, ineveitably, I got a mark to make my stuff memorable. Let me introduce you to my cat, Murder.

Murder

Murder, the KATsKILL cat

She’s my new mark, created to clearly identify items in my hand-made jewellery collection. The collection is called KATsKILL and will feature pieces made of primarily recycled materials. This includes hand-made paper beads.

I’ve managed to sell a few pairs of earrings so far, which is a great step in the right direction. Most of those sold are featured in an album on Facebook, and I’m currently working on more pieces in different styles. There will also be necklaces, bracelets, anklets, and whatever else I can think up to sell.

First up is a small stall at the next RoC Market, and if I’m able to keep up with demand, there is the possibility of an online shop. But I could be missing a few steps in between there… best to start small and deal with one thing at a time.

Be sure to keep an eye out for Murder… she could be right behind you.
