I am so thrilled to be featured in (and on the cover of) one of my all-time favourite miniature magazines! This December my Hummingbird Miniatures are featured in 'Dolls House & Miniature Scene' magazine - a fantastic read published in the UK. You can buy your copy here.
So here's my roast turkey on a dinner table spread with Christmas crackers, candles and vegetables. It's on the magazine front cover and below you can see the other images included in the article - such as a Christmas cake and Nutcracker shop scene.
My online Hummingbird Miniatures Etsy shop will be back at the end of Dec / start of Jan 2014... :)

You may have noticed that I closed my shops (this one) and (the other one)...! for the holidays so that I can fly home to England and spend it with my family. I'll be back in Jan 2014!!
Until then - stay in touch and make sure you don't miss updates about new products, competitions and when big discounts will be announced (the big one is coming post Christmas).
So... here are my 3 Facebook pages! Find Hummingbird Miniatures below, click on over and 'like' and you'll get the updates. Same for my other brand, and finally, the third Facebook page below represents my miniature movie making... one not to miss!

Anyway, I'm really excited to show you my new handmade jewelry (or jewellery UK English) which I created for Christmas this year. Despite there being other 'mini food jewelry artisans' out there, I don't think anyone else is doing miniature gingerbread house earrings as dangle earrings - so I feel like they're quite special and unique. I worked hard on creating a special and unique design too.
They are also extremely tiny (much smaller than they appear in the photos) - so they will be a talking point at the Christmas party I'm sure!
Handmade by myself in smaller than one inch scale - these little iced gems hang on surgical steel findings (in black because I felt that would look cooler than silver), and all of the candy on them was handmade entirely by myself. See gingerbread house pendants below as well.
Here's a 'making of' photo below... I did a few at a time and hardened them in my craft oven, then once cooled I attached the earring findings. Just a little varnish in places and they were ready!
Find them at my online Hummingbird Miniatures Etsy shop and order ASAP to ensure you get them in time for Christmas gift-giving. They come in my pretty Hummingbird Miniatures packaging - so they're ready little stocking fillers!
** Please note that my Hummingbird Miniatures shop will close for 2 weeks (16th Dec 2013 - 1st Jan 2014) so that I can travel home to England for the holidays - get your sales in before that date! :) **
