For those who prefer their Big Yin elsewhere..our Billy Connolly illustration has been laser etched into a wee wooden wall decoration.
Measures approx 10cm
Limited numbers available now. #billyconnolly#scotland#decoration
Next batch of Billy Connolly brooches available online NOW!
Am blown away by the response to these but trying to release them in manageable amounts as I don't want you to order and then have to wait too long for them to arrive. But I will keep them coming! Don't want anyone to miss out! Plus we are doing a good job in raising funds for Parkinsons UK too. 🏼
This batch will ship first week in July. #thebigyin#billyconnolly#sirbillyconnolly#glasgow#scotland#wearableart
Our love for The Big Yin knows no bounds! Couldn't resist creating our very own piece of Billy Connolly art to celebrate his 75th Birthday this year.
Illustrated by Mhairi Mackenzie, lasercut, assembled and inked by hand these statement brooches are something extra special.
Due to high demand we will be releasing these in batches of 10 so if you miss out the first time it shouldn't be long before more are available. Once the first batch has sold out a preorder will open for the next.
Who doesn't love a wee sweet treat from time to time?! We decided to add little gift jars of sweeties to our shop in The Hidden Lane, but with a difference, these bad boys are SUGAR FREE!! i always feel guilty about the amount of sugar in regular retro sweets so thought we'd try something a bit different. You can pick up a jar of cola bottles, cola pips or gummy bears this weekend @hiddenlanesaturdays#sweet#retrosweet#sugarfree#nostalgia#thehiddenlane
Just wanted to show you where I got to today. I've taken the original drawing and colours quite literally here. I'm going to order a nicer colour for the skintone as the ivory is a tad peely wally! Plus I think we may need to go with regular black eyebrows as the pink ones are a bit lost.
Looking forward to tightening up the design throughout the week and should have some brooches ready for sale by the weekend. There will also be other Billy Connolly products launching with the same design so stay tuned! #thebigyin#billyconnolly#sirbilly#acrylicjewellery#wip#illustration
Had a fabulous wee day out here at the Botanic Gardens yesterday. I used to have a flat across the road from here many moons ago and loved lying around the grounds soaking up the sun with my friends in the summer. #glasgow#visitscotland#botanics
Watching the @bbcscotland doc on Billy Connolly was just wonderful. I've been starting work on a little piece for myself, will be interesting to see this make the transformation into acrylic plastic!
I've met Billy a couple of times, he used to come to Bute for the local folk festival. One year I walked out of my house and he was sat across the road on a seaside bench just relaxing and playing his banjo. Wonderful times. #billyconnolly#glasgow#bute#wip#seaside
A quiet corner in the Hidden Lane. Nice wee colour combo too. Off to work I go, dropped the wee one at nursery and home to feed my recovering-from-an-op husband before I leave him to rest.
My brain is bursting with new product ideas but who knows how many I can get through! Time to get to it. #hiddenlane#colourpop#mycolourfullife#whereiwork
Taught myself a new trick today. Using brand new laserable vinyls I've managed to make the first in-house Bonnie Bling bibs.
Will be getting the new designs stocked up this week and should be online pronto! #weerascal#scottishgifts#babygift
A wee sketch from this evening.
No matter how useless and insignificant your vote may seem, to not have it would be way worse.
We are lucky we are allowed to choose, albeit amidst a quagmire of media slurs and political spins. Just take a moment, and do what feels right, and please make sure you vote.
If you disagree with the process then a spoiled ballot is a stronger protest than a blank one.
They don't expect you to vote, some parties are hoping you won't even bother, so show em who's really in control here and get down that polling station! #electionday#ge2017#vote#ourfuture#rainbow#hope
It'll be a strange 48 hours coming up on UK social media. With the number of elections lately one thing's for sure, nobody can make up their mind about anything!
Anyway, seen as I managed to clear all my orders I decided to take some design time today.
A picture I took of a white brick wall in Portugal has stuck in my mind and finally I've got around to making a sample of my necklace idea. The brick rose necklace is cut in matte white acrylic and finished with frosted pink roses and glossy green leaves. Something bright and cheery as we head for media meltdown! #makersgonnamake#makeartnotwar#portugal#brick#acrylicjewellery#floral
If stained glass, gothic buildings, marble stairwells and lush plant life is your thing then you could do a lot worse than head to @mount_stuart for a visit. Gorgeous gardens, a white marble chapel to die for and a horoscope painted ceiling, just go already! #visitbute#visitscotland#gothic#placestogo
Sneaky snap from one of the cards in our first EVER subscription box. All boxes have now been shipped, keep your eyes trained on that postie!
We managed to sell every box this time but will be opening up a small number of additional sub slots for our Autumn box that will ship first week in September. #beyourownmermaid#blingersarebest#quote
Another day, another reason to wear one of these.
What an absolute numpty this guys is. I actually had a really bizarre dream last night where I was hating on Trump but he sent me a good luck card with business advice in it and then everyone thought he was okay, EXCEPT ME!! Unfortunately, pulling the US out of the Paris emissions deal is not a dream, it's a horrible horrible nightmare that will affect my child's future on this planet. Spread the word about this guy's ultimate jobbiness while giving £5 to @refuweegee #trumpisajobby#trump#paris#climatechange
The rain was relentless in Rothesay today. I decided to take a wee day trip back home to show @mari____on around the incredible @mount_stuart house and gardens. What a wonderful day despite the rain. Wee one was happily running round all the trees in my favourite garden, the rock garden is looking especially good this year, and what about this as a place to have your breakfast when you stumble out of your bed in the mornings?! House goals much??? If you've never been to Bute, just do it. But remember most of the wee shops in the town centre close at 4pm, which I forgot #bute#visitbute#mountstuart#daytrip

For anyone who's never seen Finnieston IRL here is what it's like behind the scenes. This is taken from our landlord's newest enterprise 'The Hive' just next door to The Hidden Lane.
Finnieston is lauded in the press as being 'the' place to be/live/eat/drink etc, and it is fabulous but also it's still a work in progress. I love that it's all rough round the edges everywhere, will be sad if it ever becomes too polished round here.
And yeah, my take on the latest Instagram 'scandals', polished on the outside but followers bought, bots in force and fakes everywhere ya look. I've never had a strategy in place for my social media, I've never had the time. I've had to take a slow and steady approach to building my followers, I've been real life as can be with a two year old in tow. So a bit like my surroundings. Enjoy the real life, it's all a work in progress. #scotland#ifoundthehiddenlane#hiddenlane#finnieston#irl#guylovesbricks
Good grief. What on earth is going on over there in Trumpland?
For those who'd like to make a statement our protest badges are juuust right. £5 from all sales of these goes to @refuweegee#yaldi
Had an evening in Edinburgh last night and stumbled across this braw wee burger joint across from the Queens Hall.
LOVED that everything was proudly named with a Scottish twist. These guys make all the sauces, dips and burgers inhouse and do so with a smile on their faces and a good bit of quality banter.
Was even more pleased to hear that they are making plans to set up over here in Glasgow in the near future. Braw Burgers for everyone!! #brawburgers#edinburgh#foodie#burger
