New Stockist

Another stockist added to list of shops and galleries that sell my jewellery : Thought Foundation, a fantastic creative community interest company in Gateshead. Go on, have a visit, you will find many lovely things to see, to do and to eat! I do silver clay jewellery workshops there as well!

For the first time…

…I made a sterling silver wedding band for a groom. A simple ring but an important one.

British Craft Trade Fair – even more excited….

Now there is almost a month to go for this trade fair. I am almost prepared though so much to do.

Just re-reading some of the articles from BCTF website such as this one that makes me proud:

Why choose BCFT? – 43 years in the making…..BCTF showcases the and the largest collection of the UK’s most talented designer-makers, its dedication to promoting British is unparalleled.  Exhibitors are carefully selected and their contemporary and innovative designs range from Home, Gift, Fashion and Craft to Art and Garden” (original text can be found here).

As far as I can see, I am the only North East new comer in the jewellery category which makes me even prouder- is that possible?
