Bold as Brass

Morning all!  I've been busy working on Buy Handmade British this week and now have this poster available to download for free.  It's based on an old Communist propaganda poster but with a crafty twist.  I've made the pdf and jpg available to download.  If you want the jpg you need to click on the jpg link and then right click on the image to save it.  Once you have your copy of the image you can do whatever you like with it - print it out, put it on your website, add your company logo, change the colours to match your business - anything!  As long as you keep the Buy Handmade British URL on the poster, that's the only condition.

Today's blog is about brass.  It's a bit of a sequel to last week's copper blog but I've included jewellery this time.  It's a nice shiny blog to brighten up this rainy day.
