The joys of getting old…
My daughter: how old are you mummy? Me: 38 Daughter: you are so old! You’re sooooo ollllld mummy! Me: errr….
It’s that time of year (almost) when it seems that there are fairs, exhibitions and events going on everywhere! It’s difficult knowing which ones are worth going to, but I can highly recommend the Made In Bristol Gift Fairs in the Colston Hall. It has been running for quite a few years now and is highly successful in a fantastic venue. There is always a great range of high quality handmade goods making it perfect for sorting your Christmas/birthday shopping all in one go or collecting a range of business cards for future reference.
I will be there for ALL FOUR Fairs this year! Eek! I’ve always done one or two a year for around 5 years now but this year I’ve decided to go for it and do them all. Consequently I will have LOTS of new stock! If you don’t already follow me on Instagram or Facebook then pop over and click ‘follow’/’like’ now as I will be sharing new jewellery designs on there over the coming weeks and you may see pieces that I never get round to listing in my online shops. Some pieces will be limited range only so feel free to contact me to make sure you get yours before they sell out!
The dates for Made In Bristol this year are – Saturday 24 & Sunday 25 November, 10am – 4pm Saturday 1 December, 10am – 4pm Saturday 8 December, 10am – 4pm
I am also excited to be trying out a new fair in Corsham – the Indulgence & Shopping Evening, Corsham School, Wednesday 21 November, 7-9pm. If you’re local please do come and say hello.
And last but not least, I will also be attending the Chosen Wedding Fair on Sunday 17 February 2019, 11am – 4pm at the Paintworks Event Space, Bristol. But more on this one in the new year – I can’t think that far ahead just yet!
It was a delight to be given the opportunity to re-set this stunning ruby! Originally set in a pendant, it had been lost and replaced with another ruby pendant…and then – as is the way of these things – found again! So rather than have two ruby pendants, my customer decided to have it transformed into a ring.
These earrings are a follow up from a previous commission to re-purpose some old gold rings into a new wedding band. The gold was melted down and formed into 2mm square wire with plenty to make a wedding ring and have some leftover for a future project.
So it brought a smile to my face to hear from Hannah again about using the rest of her gold for her mum’s birthday this summer! I was told her mum loved green which couldn’t be more perfect as the combination of yellow gold and green gemstones is stunning. Continue reading Commission: Recycled Gold Peridot Earrings
It was lovely to see this diamond ring back on my bench for a clean and polish as well as matching it to a bespoke shaped wedding band. The ring had worn very well and has clearly been looked after as cleaning and polishing was a quick job!
