A new journal for spring...

I have been a little absent from my blog this past year...so I have decided to start a fresh with a new journal and seeing as it is now spring I thought now would be as good a time as ever. I will be using my journal to keep you updated on new products, new stockists, exhibitions, news and a few special offers. 

Please leave me comments and feedback...I would love to hear from you. 

Speak to you soon

British Craft Trade Fair 2014- one week on!

Phew!

I am now back from Harrogate after a busy and exciting few days. The show seemed to be busy and buzzing with lots of people from many different galleries, shops and outlets. One of the nicest things about BCTF is finally being able to put faces to names and properly meet and catch up with people you regularly work with via the telephone or email. The most beneficial part for me is seeing people's first hand responses to my work and receiving positive and encouraging feedback from visitors, 

Unfortunately I didn't have a huge amount of time to look at all of the stands at BCTF but there were a few makers/designers whose work really stood out for me, including designer and printmaker Kiran Ravilious, illustrator Kate Broughton and jewellery designer Ellie Ingram a.k.a Bug. It was also lovely to catch up with a few old favourites, ceramicist Lucianna Gallucci and jewellery designers Jennie Gill and Jessica Hewitt

During BCTF I was lucky enough to be invited to display my work in a few new galleries and to show my work in several upcoming exhibitions...more info on my website soon. 

Until next year...

Getting ready for the British Craft Trade Fair 2014

Tomorrow evening I will be heading up North to the lovely Harrogate to take part in the British Craft Trade Fair held in the Great Yorkshire Showground. This is my second year attending BCTF and I'm looking forward to getting there and setting up, the show has always been a great opportunity to meet lots of new makers, see new work and to hear fresh feedback on my work. The show opens on Sunday at 10am until 6pm and will be open on Monday and Tuesday 10am until 6pm. There will be lots of lovely work to see so please pop along and say hello...I'm on stand 260!

Looking forward to seeing you there!

The Do Blog- Wanderlust 005

If you are not already aware of The Do Blog...you should be! It is a beautiful and inspiring blog, celebrating people who are...well...doing! People who are getting off their bums and doing things..creative things, exciting things, unusual things, all kinds of things! The Do Blog recently featured a piece on my other (better) half Gavin Strange, composed and written by Stephanie Lynn, the blog accurately captured Gav's genuine character, contagious enthusiasm and hard work ethic!

As a fan of the blog already, I was then honoured to have my work and website featured in their Wanderlust section.

Many, many thanks to The Do Blog team and to Stephanie...you have made my day!

Thank you Yorkshire Sculpture Park!

I want to say a big thank you to all of the staff at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park for looking after my work so well during their MADE Jewellery Showcase, which took place throughout September and October. It is always an honour to be invited to take part in an exhibition and as a huge fan of the YSP I was thrilled to be able to participate in their jewellery showcase. I have been delighted to hear how well my work has been received and I would like to say a huge thank you to all of YSP's customers who bought a piece of work, I hope you enjoy wearing your new piece of jewellery as much as I enjoyed making it.
