handmade-fair-flyerWe are very proud to announce that Enchanted Cherub will be exhibiting as part of the Happy Days team at The Handmade Fair in the grounds of Hampton Court Palace. Presented by Kirstie Allsopp and sponsored by Hobbycraft, this large three-day event is the first of its kind and will be held from 19th to 21st September 2014. Entry to the show includes a Skill workshop, Super Theatre Session with big names such as Annie Sloan and Cath Kidston, a ‘Grand Make’ and shopping from hand-picked craft sellers. We are all extremely excited about this amazing opportunity to show off our wares. For more details about the Fair, please visit their website -  www.thehandmadefair.com

We are currently putting the finishing touches to the Hampton Court collection before its unveiling. Each one-off piece contains a mixture new beads, handcrafted resin pendants and upcycled / repurposed items such as old keys, buttons, chandelier crystals, watch faces, old coins and vintage jewellery components. Amanda has had enormous fun creating them. Pictures will be included very soon.

To commemorate the centenary of the birth of Welsh Poet Dylan Thomas, BBC Wales created a drama entitled ‘Dylan Thomas: A Poet in New York’, for which Enchanted Cherub supplied most of the vintage costume jewellery.

The one-hour ‘TV movie’ was shown on BBC1 Wales in April 2014, and again in May on BBC2, and starred Tom Hollander (of the ‘Rev’ television series) as the talented poet from Swansea.

The story depicts the last few days of Dylan Thomas’ now troubled life, which were spent in New York, where he died in 1953 aged just 39, but also contains flashbacks to earlier times with his children and wife Caitlin at their famous boat house in Laugharne.

modelIn October 2013, Amanda met with Yolanda Kingdon of Key Photography for a photo-shoot of a new series of pendants all featuring old keys.

With some carefully chosen props (courtesy of Happy Days) and a beautiful pale blue outfit we made for model Amelia, a magical, ‘Alice in Wonderland’ theme evolved, and the pendants became known as ‘The Key to the Secret Garden’ collection.

The shoot took place in the pretty Physic Garden in Cowbridge, Vale of Glamorgan, and the early autumn morning sunlight added to the fairytale atmosphere.
