Mad Men, which just began its seventh and final season, is a time capsule from the world of 1960’s advertising in New York. Matthew Weiner’s dense story line is propelled through protagonist Don Draper, the former creative director at Sterling Cooper & Partners. Handsome, debonair, and talented, Draper is also a louche and a tortured soul. Weiner invited Interior Design’s Cindy Allen, the only magazine editor ever granted full access, to tour Draper’s Park Avenue apartment, the agency’s Time & Life Building office, and more on four sound stages in Los Angeles. interiordesignmagazine:

Kate Lycett - The changing seasons

In my work, I am fortunate to meet a lot of creative and talented people. The creative mind brings with it lots of joy and challenges; it is always fascinating to see how people’s worlds unfold and new work is born.

Working with the artist, Kate Lycett is one of those joyous moments… it is like turing the page of a really exciting book, hoping there is something equally exciting on the other side. Kate never disappoints. She always has something on the back burner brewing.

Seeing Kate’s work develop and grow is one of my life’s pleasures and I am happy to be a part of her journey. Kate will be revealing something very exciting soon but I am sworn to secrecy…

Here is a little look in to Kate’s beautiful world…

Lightbulb Session - bringing your ideas to life.

Welcome to your Lightbulb moment!

Starting something new can be scary and exciting at the same time, what you need to remember in the early stages is to let your ideas formulate, to be grounded and rooted in a vision plan first, before taking action.

So how can a Lightbulb Session help you?

An Lightbulb session is useful when needing help with the beginnings of a project, wanting inspiration or new ideas on an existing project. A lot of good ideas come from nothing. So take a leap of faith and begin your adventure, it is okay to ask for help and support. Starting your own business is all about communication and relating to others, breaking boundaries and being heard. Through this session we will have new ideas on the table, a clear vision plan and you will feel empowered to move on to the next step…

How can I book in a Lightbulb Session?

For your first  lightbulb session I will send you over questions, to guide the meeting on what you want to focus on and then we will work on these areas and strategy from there. Book your first session here with me, fiona@happy4pr.com and you can have you session online via skype or face to face at Happy 4 pr HQ.

Lightbulb Top up Sessions – to have continued support and lightbulb ideas throughout the year, or help with the existing project.
After you first Lightbulb session you may want a Top Up throughout the year, which has worked well in the past for previous clients.

To Book your Lightbulb Session, email me fiona@happy4pr.com.

Payments for Skype connections are paid before the session via Paypal fiona@happy4pr.com or at the session in person. For the first session I recommend 2 hours. If you are unsure, always email and I will get right back to you.

Look forward to meeting you soon.

A preview to jewellery designer, Judith Brown’s Wedding Collection

JudithBrown-HollyBooth-94 You have recently done a shoot for your bridal collection, what colours and styles will you be featuring?  

The style of my bridal collections is elegant, pretty and delicate, and I use vintage mother of pearl buttons, antique lace and even lace I have made myself with the traditional technique of tatting in the designs. A subtle range of delicate shades from snow white, through to ivory and vanilla cream feature in the collections. Some designs are hand embroidered with tiny glass beads, embellished with lace like silver wire stitching and finished with freshwater pearl and glass bead drops. Pretty flowers feature in both the vintage and handmade lace designs.

JudithBrown-HollyBooth-170Vintage is a major influence in your work, what else is inspiring you in 2014? 

I often take inspiration from antique dress and textiles, and am working on a collection of designs inspired by Tudor portraits following a research trip to London at the end of last year, so this collection will include semi precious gemstones such as garnets, amazonite,aventurine and pearls, I’m looking into using some some gold in these designs too. Looking further forward I have ideas for next years collections which will bring more colour into my work, so I have been collecting pictures to create a mood board for that, so far there are images of delicate plants and flowers such as spring blossom, delicate seed heads and embroidered fabrics and dresses which reflect the same ideas, colours like vintage peach, duck egg, warm cream, gold sea green and silvery white.

Have you any workshops lined up this year, and where will they be held and what is your theme? 

For the spring I have 3 workshops lined up

March 22nd 2014 ~ Wire Jewellery with haberdashery. Full day workshop at Hope and Elvis, The Welbeck Estate, Nottinghamshire. www.hopeandelvis.com

March 23rd 2014~ Wire Jewellery with vintage lace. Full day workshop. The Beetroot Tree, Derbyshire. www.beetroottree.com

April 26th 2014 – Two half day workshops. One with Vintage haberdashery, one with Vintage Lace. Debbie Bryan Studio and Shop, the Lace Market, Nottingham www.debbiebryan.co.uk

The workshops are all inspired by my collections and there’s a chance to experiment with my techniques and make at least one piece of jewellery.

JudithBrown-HollyBooth-17Recently you have been exploring new techniques and processes…. please tell us about this? 

I have been learning the traditional lace making of tatting, so that I can make my own lace to transform into jewellery. This is a technique which involves creating series of knots to form stitches and these stitches then can be formed into rings, and then abstract or often floral motifs. Traditionally it’s used to make lace doilies or edgings for fabrics, but I am using it to create small motifs that I can use for jewellery and stitch into with my wire stitching technique. I’m also going on a natural dye workshop so that I can dye my own threads for this technique and hope to achieve subtle shades which are not commercially available.

Vintage Blanc and Noir  - are both stunning collections, do you find it difficult to create new styles of jewellery or does it come naturally to you? 

I am generally inspired by exploring a technique and how I can give new life to the unusual materials, vintage hooks and eyes, antique mother of pearl buttons, that I use in these collections. I particularly like making something so plain and functional like the hooks and eyes seem really elegant and feminine in my designs. I look to vintage and antique jewellery to get ideads for shapes and styles of the finished pieces. As long as I give myself the time to get inspired, collect ideas, then I just love making new things!
