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!
