So thrilled to see an interview with Prue Leith about her jewellery in the Financial Times - and to read that this necklace is her favourite one! It was created as a unique ‘show stopper’ piece as part of my Out of Line collection and was acquired by Prue earlier this year having ‘lusted after’ it at an exhibition at the Contemporary Applied Arts. I am very flattered not just because of her great style and celebrity status, but mostly because she was a highly successful independent business woman and an incredible chef.

I am very excited to be heading back to uni - I will be spending a week at the Institute for Creative Leather Technologies at Northampton University in June.  Part funded by the Leathersellers' Company, the course will be a hands exploration in a tannery about how different types of leather are produced.  I am sure my chemistry degree will be very useful!

 

SUCCESS in new york!

Loot - display - Apr18.jpg
 

It has been a busy week since I returned to the studio from New York - making special orders.  LOOT was simply a phenomenal show, where visitors were curious, adventurous and enormous fun to meet.  

 

'NIGHT & DAY' FOR LOOT IN NY

I've adopted the theme 'Night & Day' (or 'Day & Night'!) for presenting my work at Loot.  I have selected key designs to be made in natural tone leather, and setting the black and natural leather pieces against each other lends a great dynamic to my display.
