A new beginning in 2019

I will be moving out of my humble home-studio to  a brand new studio at the Biscuit Box  part of the Biscuit Studios  that are set In the heart of Newcastle’s Cultural Quarter. 

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

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.

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?
