It’s been too long since I’ve last posted on my blog! Christmas is always a manic time of year for a maker and alongside the seasonal rush, I’ve been kept busy organising my new workshop space.
I spent the hectic Christmas working from my kitchen, while my new workshop and office was being built. As you can imagine, I’m delighted that it’s now finished and I can spend more time making lots of jewellery!
Here’s some photos of my new workshop and some works in progress on the bench.
I’m really enjoying designing and making in my new workshop, look out for some new designs coming soon!
Earlier this Spring I was thrilled to be invited to showcase my handmade jewellery with an exciting new website Handmade in Kent. This is an online shop devoted to sharing the very best of handmade products made in the lovely county of Kent! Of course I was delighted to be accepted, alongside many other talented Kent-based designers and makers, many who are personal friends.
Handmade in Kent are also planning to organise regular events so people can meet the makers and see their products in the flesh. I really love the idea of a fresh new online shop where you can find the best of Kentish made products, with networking; so important when you work by yourself!
Why not take a look for yourself? Enjoy having a browse and let me know what you think of my collection of handmade jewellery at Handmade in Kent.
If you are a Kent based creative, you can find out more by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m very pleased to have been involved in a photo shoot with the talented Yeshen Venema as part of an exciting promotion with Folksy. Along with lots of other lovely products all handmade by Folksy sellers, my jewellery took a trip to Wales. It was to be part of a shoot in the beautiful, rustic surroundings of the Welsh House and styled by Hilary Lowe.
I’d love to share the finished images with you, they are really beautiful!
I’m really pleased with them and can’t wait to use them in my Folksy shop, where all items are available to order.
