Hi there!
Apologies for a late newsletter but I went on holiday! I’ve been touring Scotland and did over 1200 miles! Had an incredible time but back to work for me! Lots happening at the moment. Next week I’m off to Patchings Art and Craft Festival, just outside Nottingham. It runs from Thursday 5th to Sunday 8th June, if you’re going please pop in the craft marquee and have a chat!

The following weekend is the Wirral Open Studio Tour, 14th and 15th June. I, along with 44 other artists, will be opening my workshop to the general public to view my workshop, see how I make my jewellery and make a purchase or two. Please pop in there will be lots of home made cakes! Contact me for details or for more information go to http://www.wirralart.com/index.htm

I have been very busy with wedding ring workshops, tuition and commission work. Here is a recent ring made in 18ct white gold and 9ct rose gold, set with 7 diamonds. All of this ring was made using the clients own gold and diamonds from old jewellery.

Wibke and Graham attended on of my ‘Make Your Own Wedding Rings’ workshops and have made two gorgeous very organic looking rings! Again from old jewellery. I have set 7 diamonds into the ring after they made them. Wibke and Graham get married on 13th June so I wish them every happiness! I will show the close ups of the rings next month.
