A new beginning in 2019

It is exciting and in the mean time daunting… watch the space for more developments.

Preview Evening

Proud and Happy! At the National Glass Centre , Sunderland with my concrete and sterling silver jewellery.

Over the last 13 months since I have left my “proper” job and give my focus on creative activities life became calmer in many ways and hectic in many other ways but most definitely happier.

Another step…. Hallmark

Some of my silver items are hallmarked at the Edinburgh Assay Office. I can now exhibit the dealer’s notice. The hallmark contains the sponsor’s mark (that’s me) which is EMT, the fineness mark which is 999 for pure silver, assay office mark which is a castle for Edinburgh Assay Office and a year mark which is a “t” for 2018.
