The Guild of Jewellery Designers

You may have been wondering what the little pop up in the left hand corner of my site is? Well, it’s to show my membership of The Guild of Jewellery Designers.

“Buy with confidence from a GoJD Gold Plus or Gold Extra member.

Now, the Guild of Jewellery Designers is a wonderful resource, offering protection for customers, as well as a unique forum for makers to chat all things jewellery.

What has reminded me to tell you about them, is a lovely blog they wrote “Our Favorite Gold And Silver Jewellery Set”, featuring my gold and diamond pendant and earring set, so I wanted to return the favour!

Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair – Online Christmas Edition

It’s getting to that festive time of year again. It’s great to get out and about and peruse fabulous craft, I’d highly recommend the MAC Christmas Arts Markets 2021 in Birmingham (and not just because I’m doing the fair on 27th November). But if that doesn’t work from you, Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair has just the solution.

GNCCF are running the Online Christmas Edition to their fantastic craft fairs on 4th-5th December 2021. I’ll be featured, alongside a whole host of fantastic makers from across the crafts spectrum.

There really is a wide variety of beautiful work to choose from, and it is all made by independent crafts people like me.

So you can support skilled crafts workers by shopping independent, and bag yourself some amazing Christmas gifts in to the bargain.

Christmas Craft Fair at mac Birmingham

I have been busy, busy, busy, getting ready for the mac Christmas markets. I’ve not done an in person craft fair for a good few years now, so I’m really looking forward to it.

Exhibiting at a craft fair is a great opportunity for me to chat to customers, and also have a good look around at all the other wonderful work on display, meet old maker friends and new, and pick up a few Christmas presents whilst I’m at it.

The mac Christmas markets are located in the wonderful midlands arts centre, nestled Birmingham’s leafy green Cannon Hill Park. Running over two weekends, with loads to choose from, from across the crafts spectrum.

I’ll be there on Saturday 27th November, so pop down and grab yourself some unique pieces from local makers.

Silver and topaz pendant

I’m excited to be working away on my new site, it’s going to take time, but I’m looking forward to launching products here, showing you all the latest additions to my ranges. To start with, have a peak at this beautiful London Blue Topaz, set in a band of sterling silver, with yellow gold accents.
