‘BIG’ Whitley Bay Carnival

Come to Whitley Bay for the Carnival. The annual carnival parade is the centrepiece of a colourful family day out bringing crowds to the Spanish City Plaza and Links to enjoy circus, street arts, live music and more alongside traditional seaside shuggy boats and fairground rides, street food craft ale bars, the arts market and trade stalls.

The market runs from 10.00 – 18.00 on Saturday 26 May.

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.

Silver Journey

Since I was a little girl, I always liked jewellery. It is part of the rich culture I come from-Turkey. And I always liked silver jewellery and still go to same shop in Istanbul to get new ones whenever I am there. Never thought I would be able to create my own ones though…I had my first class in May 2016, and it was delightful. Now I want to do more. Love creating things….
