Phew! It's been a busy couple of months and I've been very bad at keeping the blog up-to-date so I'm very sorry for that.

The British Craft Trade Fair is only a month away now so I'm frantically getting everything ready.  Last year was my first foray into the world of trade fairs so I have a much better idea as to where I can improve...the problem is that I have to many improvements that I want to implement!

I have a new collection debuting at BCTF this year and I'm very excited about it!  It is once again inspired by the beautiful forest I walk in every day with my dogs and I never fail to get new ideas.  It's forever changing yet always the same, do you know what I mean?

This new collection will be on the website after the trade fair is over although I still need to think of a name for it!  

(If you are reading this and you are a gallery or shop owner and would like an invite to the British Craft Trade Fair, please get in touch and I will be delighted to send you one!)

On The Bench!

This week I'm working with red gold as well as silver on a new design.  I really like the contrast between the metals and this will work perfectly when conveying the story of the design.

I also have a new commission that I'm working on today.  It is a large statement neckline piece that will suit it's new owner down to a "T"!  All pieces tend to reflect the wearer's personality but this one more so than others.  I've been given the brief that it needs to include a beautiful spiral and the rest is down to me - being given free rein is exciting but can be nerve-wracking too!

I'm still frantically preparing for BCTF in April in Harrogate.  This will be my first trade show so the learning curve is steep and the to-do list is getting longer!  Better get back to it :-)
