An autumnal hello to my faithful blog followers! It has been an exciting (albeit hectic) year on the glass-making front co-leading the production team on a stained glass commission with Richard (which I can unfortunately neither show you photos of, nor talk about due to contractual restrictions but I can say it will be very beautiful when it is finished!) Thank you for patiently awaiting my next jewellery boat blog bulletin!
With the festive season fast approaching, I thought I'd let you know where my jewellery and "The Porcelain Menagerie" will be appearing. I've created new porcelain and glass members to join the gang and lined up 5 new and favourite craft fairs as family outings for them all! They're looking forward to meeting you too!

I am excitedly looking forward to taking part in these enterprising events. They represent ideal opportunities to buy from local craftspeople and designer / makers who as small businesses will be delighted if you choose to "shop local" too, and you'll find original, individual and unique gifts for everyone!
I'll be bringing a selection of my nature-inspired jewellery, glass and porcelain to each one. It would be wonderful to see you and catch up (you know how I like a good natter!) Do come along and say "hello" if you are in the area.
Thank you kind gentlefolk, your ongoing interest, encouragement and support are much appreciated!
