Preparing for Christmas!

Yes, I know it's a bit early but we are already focusing on getting things together for a very busy December.  I will be back at Hilliers with the Association for Contemporary Jewellery and also sharing a chalet at the Salisbury Christmas Market.  The latter is a first for me and I have no idea what to expect, how much stock I will need - all a bit scary really but if you don't give it a try you will never know.

My stock of earrings is getting very depleted so I have made a few more.  I have done very well at the art and craft markets in July.  Especially Bert and Gert's vintage and art and craft market in Andover.  I will be back in Andover again on 11th August.

I am also taking part in an exhibition in a gallery in Salisbury in October.  I have been getting a theme together for that one as I only need 10 pieces.  I want to do silver flowers with gemstone centres but is that too summery for October?  Do people like flower jewellery in October or Christmas?  Not sure but I love making them.  So many pretty flowers in our garden.  My new rose garden is looking amazing.

I have also had a few commissions from friends and my sister, it's all busy busy.  Better go and get on with it.  I will leave you with some photos.  The large flower has a druzy stone in the centre which is beautiful - it is sold though!
