    So I havn’t been idle since my last entry, I’m getting back in the swing of regular making and last week I delivered work to the Thelma Hulbert Gallery as I am included in their Present Makers Christmas Show which opens this Saturday. It showcases local designers in textiles, print, ceramics, homewares and of course jewellery. You can meet some of the makers, watch demos and enjoy a glass of mulled wine. Sounds like a great day out to me.

    It's a lovely Gallery in Honiton, Devon. I try and visit once or twice year and have been to their Christmas shows where I always find unusual and beautifully made presents, so I am really pleased to have been chosen to take part.

     

    Here’s the link, the show is on till December 24th,

  2. Its a long time since I made an entry on my blog page. Its not that I’ve been uninspired, just busier than normal and to be honest, I’m not used to it. In the last year and a half we have all slowed down, and I have to admit I quite liked it. No pressures or deadlines, time to try new things, even got a few chores done that have been hanging around for years.

    I’ve also been out photographing butterflies this summer, did I mention my partner got his final picture in his quest to photograph all of Britain’s Butterflies ?  The Purple Emperor, once it emerges its only around for a few weeks so with the weather being so unpredictable the window of opportunity was small.

    We’ve got the kiln up and running again and Jewellery classes at Touchmark Studios have re started  and it was great to meet up with my jewellery buddies the last 2 weeks, although there was more talking than making.

    I’m picking up again with the idea of fur and feathers although I think it would be more accurate to call this collection Nature’s Patterns as its all based 

    on butterflies, moths, flowers and bird feathers.

     So this is my first pair of earrings I’ve made in months.
