Craft Central Artisan Market


Craft Central Artisan Market is coming up on 8 October! I’ll be there with my jewellery, including lots of new pieces that I haven’t had available at markets before. It’s from 10am-4pm at Macs Function Centre on the waterfront. There will also be free workshops.

Have you seen all the new stock in the Leroy, Betty & Co etsy store? So many pretty new items!


It’s nearly October which means it’s nearly time to print the next lot of custom earrings! Get in now to make sure yours are shipped next week. Click the image below for details.



Hi everyone

Sorry for the lack of posts on the blog over the last few months!  I’ve started a new job at work, and with Leroy, Betty & Co. I’ve been focusing on making jewellery for my favourite time of year – Christmas!

I’ve added lots of new stock to my etsy and felt stores, including the earrings below.  Not only is there a lot of new stock but you will also find in the stores some of the most popular items from Cats & Whiskers jewellery – including the bottle necklaces!

My first market of the Christmas season coming up this week!  I will be at the Knack Craft Market on Friday the 13th and Saturday the 14th of November.  This market is at Berhampore School and is always one of my favourites – lots of great stalls.  Get all of your Christmas shopping done in one place!


Free gift wrapping is now available if you order online.  Just add a note to your order requesting that your items are wrapped.  This offer ends 24 December.

Do you like Leroy, Betty & Co. on Facebook?  It’s the most up to date place to find out what’ going on, plus there will be some giveaways coming up.


Bits and bobs

Hi everyone!  Just a quick update to say hi and let you know how everything is going.

The last month for me has been crazy busy.  Work has been full on, plus Aaron and I have been planning an overseas holiday and settling into a new church.


But, I did finally manage to get my new logo sorted, and my etsy store reopened!  Only a small range of jewellery is available at the moment, but I’ll be working over the next few months to slowly add more stock when I can.  For now, enter the coupon ’10OFF’ at checkout to get 10% off your purchase. There’s also a giveaway happening on instagram that ends this evening.  Make sure you enter while you can!

I’m hoping to get some more sewing done over easter weekend.  Can’t wait!

Have a great week.

Wee updates

The last week or so has been a wee bit hectic for me! I’m currently doing a huge clear out at home (& have started listing stuff on trademe, check out the listings if you are interested), plus I had a wedding in the weekend, booked a holiday for May and have had family staying. With everything going on, I haven’t been able to keep everyone up to date with the latest Leroy, Betty & Co. updates, and even didn’t get a chance to post my Friday Favourites last week.

Some of you may have seen that I’ve started testing out making dog collars! Here’s a photo of Betty modelling one of the test collars.


These will be available in the etsy store in different colours and sizes after the store launch.

I’ve also been buying some awesome new items for jewellery that I will be making and selling. While I’ll be making some of the favourites I made while running Cats & Whiskers jewellery, most pieces will be new styles. If there is something particular you would love to see again, please let me know in the comments below. I’m really excited with some of the materials I’ve found for new pieces so can’t wait to post some pictures of finished products.

I’m still deciding on a launch date for the etsy store. At this point I’m thinking it will be early March, but this depends on how much stock I’ve been able to make before then. Dog sweaters will not be available as soon as the store opens – I am hoping to have a few for sale closer to winter.

Have a great week everyone. If you are in Wellington, make sure you get out to enjoy the amazing weather we are having at the moment!
