SUMMER FUN!

A sneaky preview of the one of the new earring design that I will be showing at Open Studios in fun primary colours.  Bright, bold but extremely light to wear!

 

GOING BOLD

It's liberating to be working large scale again with my latest statement necklace

 

OPEN STUDIOS 9-11 JUNE

I'm very much looking forward to sharing my new pieces with visitors to Open Studios.  Everyone is welcome and entry is free.  There will be demonstrations, a café and a fantastic array of high quality craftsmanship on display - millinery, shoemaking, silversmithing, weaving - as a taster!  Further information here

 

LEATHER & PEARLS

Here are February's earrings!  Leather and pearls make fantastic partners.  Undoubtedly more to come...

 

EARRINGS PROJECT

2017 marks the start of my 'Earrings Project'.  I have set myself the task of designing and making a new pair of earrings each month.  Here are January's - bold and brash - and subliminally inspired by the de Stijl movement whose 100th anniversary is being celebrated this year!

 

A NEW YEAR COMMISSION

A client has just commissioned some 'Flight' earrings made with the edges shifting from gold to silver tones and back again - very glamorous.  Working with clients to development a piece with their own signature details is such a pleasure especially when the result is so stunning!

 

LEATHER JEWELLERY COURSE STARTING FEBRUARY 2017

I am looking forward to teaching a beginners course in leather jewellery at City Lit based in central London starting on 24 February for series of all day sessions taught over 4 consecutive Fridays.  The course offers students the chance to experiment with decorative techniques and designs to make a cuff/bracelet as well as develop their confidence in using this versatile material.   For further information visit City Lit

 

SELLING AT YORKSHIRE SCULPTURE PARK

My jewellery is now part of the MADE showcase at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park's wonderful shop showing until February 2017.  The feedback I've received from purchasers is fantastic.
