I found the suitcase of my dreams some weeks ago – not the perfect suitcase to take on holiday somewhere fancy, you understand, but the one I’d seen in my mind’s eye to display my jewellery mixed together with some of the things that inspire my work. Being  in quite poor condition (part of its perfection), it needed a bit of tarting up with paper, glue and a good dose of patience: a technique otherwise known as decoupage.
I’m very pleased with the result and  looking forward to showing off this new display prop!
