Welcome To Powder Monki!

Places I go. Things I make. Photos I take.

In my shop you will find a huge selection of Retro Badges, Magnets and Keyrings which are made on a per order basis.

You’re sure to find something you love here, but can I also make custom items from your own images if you have something else in mind. See the Custom Design section for more details.


Photos I Take

I love photography and have taken pictures of plants and places ever since I got my first camera.

  • Pound Wood, Daws Heath, Essex [Oct 18 2020]
    Sunday's walk mostly consisted of prickly horse chestnuts and mushroom spotting. […]
  • Leigh Walks [Jun 04 2020]
    Photos taken whilst walking around Hadleigh & Leigh, pottering along roads not yet wondered. There were still new chalk drawings to be found, and plenty of bunting hanging everywhere (although looking a little tired in places). […]
  • West Wood, Daws Heath, Essex [May 31 2020]
    A few photos taken on our walk around West Wood in Daws Heath, Essex on May 31st 2020. […]
  • Hadleigh Walks [May 29 2020]
    Photos taken whilst walking around Hadleigh, pottering along roads not yet wondered. Today's walk included a bit of Daws Heath and Thundersley. […]
  • Happiness Chain
    This little chain of painted stones has been growing over the past few weeks. I rather like the eye at the far end! […]
  • Dodds Grove, Hadleigh, Essex [25th May 2020]
    Photos taken on our walk around Dodds Grove in Hadleigh, Essex on May 25th 2020. We must have walked past the entrance dozens of times on the way into/out of Hadleigh Great Wood, but never gone in! […]
  • Leigh Walks [May 18 2020]
    Photos taken whilst walking around Hadleigh & Leigh, pottering along roads not yet wondered. Monday's walk was half an hour longer than usual. It was hot and there was chafing! […]

  • Hadleigh Walks [Apr 23 2020]
    Photos taken whilst walking around Hadleigh, pottering along roads not yet wondered. Several of the streets had bunting zig-zagging their way along from window to window, and there was some super rainbows in windows and chalk drawings on paths. […]

Things I Make

When the mood takes, I create.

  • Lucite & Filigree Floral Beaded Necklaces
    I made these lucite and filigree floral beaded necklaces back in 2013 but for some reason never got around to adding them to my shop. […]
  • Flyer Design for Bath Guild Of Embroiderers
    This is the third time I have designed the flyers for Bath Guild Of Embroiderers summer exhibition, of which my mum is a member (and creator of the artwork used on the flyer). […]
  • Baby Dresses to Pencil Cases
    Last week I bought two little baby dresses for 50p each with the idea of turning them into pencil cases as a present for my mum's birthday. I surprised myself by getting straight onto it, and even made myself on too! […]
  • Ribbon & Bead Hoop Decorations
    Just before Christmas, I created some tree decorations using memory wire, ribbon and beads. Mine ended up on the cheese plant. […]
  • Random Bead Earrings
    My mum gave me a selection of beads a few weeks back to turn into earrings for her, and I finally got around to it yesterday! […]
  • Potato Print Bird Cards
    Sometimes I feel inspired to make my own arty Christmas cards, and last year I created these potato print birdies with real feather tails. They came out slightly more sinister than I meant them to be! […]
  • Beaded Peyote & Resin Brooch
    This was a special present I made for my mum for her birthday. The outside is peyote stitched beads and the inside is a resin dome I made a white back. […]
  • Bejewelled Mosaic Coasters
    My first attempt at making coasters from my ever growing pile of tile samples! […]
  • Passport Wedding Invites
    Four months back I had the pleasure of designing the wedding invites for my boyfriend's nephew and his betrothed. Georgia set the brief of a blue passport, boarding pass and luggage label as the template, I designed it and my boyfriend printed it. They came out really well and I can't wait the the reception next month! […]
  • Beaded Peyote Necklace
    Last year I made my mum a couple of pairs of earrings for her birthday, one pair of which turned out slightly bigger than I expected. After a few months procrastination, I turned said earrings into a necklace and it became this year's birthday present instead! […]
  • Slightly Odd Arty Collage Badges
    These badges were so much fun to do, although rather fiddly and time consuming. I made them a couple of years ago, put them in a pot and promptly forgot about them until now. […]
