New Pieces For The Harley Gallery!

After a busy few weeks of designing and making, it has all been worth the while. My new collections in both the Harley Gallery and Bluecoat Design Centre have been selling really well. My newest pieces that were sent to the Harley Gallery are below....

Sketchbook Designs

Onyx 'wait for me' Necklace.

Onyx Twist Studs.

Goodville Pin with small Garnet.

Not that I want to rub it in too much....but, our holiday in Fueturventura was lovely and well needed. And in-between all the sunbathing and eating I managed to take some beautiful pictures of the island....

Now back to normality I've realised how little of my Christmas shopping I have done....Better get a move on since its only 6weeks away....crazy

Rollercoaster Week!

I hope everyone is enjoying the lovely weather we have been having the last few days...and just in time for my long haul up to the post office to send off my jewellery to another stocklist at Bluecoat Display Centre. Some new pieces that are off to BCDC are below...

Goodville collection - Lazer cut bone Studs.

Goodville Collection - Lazer cut bone ring.

The last few weeks have been very eventful for myself with lots of ups and downs. Some good and some not so good. I'll start with the good, which was two very lovely emails, one from Cat at the Harley Gallery inviting me to stocklist the gallery over the christmas period and the other from Richard at 3D2D accepting my application form to become a 3D2D member. That's 3 galleries displaying my newest collections...all at the same time! Working like a dog in the workshop is a slight understatement.

So I thought a well deserved holiday is in need....and what do you know...I've booked my first holiday in years!! Once all deadlines have been met me and Scott will be flying off for a week in the sun to Fuerteventura.

And to follow all that good news I got a bit of a kick in the teeth from my part-time job at Revlon. They will be closing our store and making all the girls redundant. Sad times but I know we will all find something much better.

Fingers crossed for more sunny days :)

The BlueCoat Display Centre and New Pieces...

Last week I went to visit my family back home in Ayr and spend some time with them and especially my gran as I had designed a pendant for her. My new pieces were all inspired by the pendant I made for my gran...all very simple with a tinny weenie sparkle.

I also got some extremely exciting news about a new stocklist. In Octber I will be supplying the BlueCoat Display Centre in Liverpool with my latest collection. The BDC is a nationally and internationally recognised contemporary craft and design gallery and they sell, exhibit and promote over 350 selected contemporary craftspeople each, so I am more than flatter to be asked to supply them with my jewellery.

After a failed first attempted at using tweeter, I've recently been trying my hardest to get to grips with it and I think I've finally got it. From tweeter I have found a brilliant bit of advice from Creative Boom all you bloggers out there....70 of the best blogs for creative inspiration!

New Work ::

Goodville Pin::

Onyx Earrings::

Forever Necklace::

Angular Pin::

Onyx Ring::

Just a couple of images to update you of what I'v been up to the last wee while....I do actually still make jewellery...amazing, I know lol. These were some of the pieces I'v had exhibiting at the Womens Work exhibition at the Link Gallery which has just recently finished. As well as some new pieces to add to my commercial collection ( I'm loving my onyx stones and beads at the mo). You can check out these and some other new pieces at ::My Shop.

Apart from working like a trooper these last few weeks I have also been painting a lot more...and finding it so relaxing! My sister has invited me to join the craft fair at the mother and toddler group she attend with my nephew Nathan. They are having a craft day in August and as well as selling my jewellery, I thought I would do a few children's paintings. Hopefully they sell or my nephews room will be covered in them.

Duncan of Jordanstone's 2011 Degree Show

Duncan of Jordanstone's 2011 Degree Show is currently in full swing and this years Jewellers really have outdone themselves! I was feeling a bit nostalgic that my own degree show was this time last year but I was so excited to see that the 4th year jewellers have all done so well!

All there hard work has paid off and the result is a visual and technical pleasure. I would definitely recommend that you treat yourselves and get along to the show.

Here's to 2011 :)

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everyone!

Its crazy how quick the time has passed. And i'm hoping that 2011 will start to slow down soon or ill never be able to keep to my resolution of being more organised and prepared for all things jewellery related.

So the time has come and Lovely Pigeon pop-up exhibition has come to an end. And thanks to Kirsty's hard work the show has been a great success and I cant wait to work with her again.

Its also come to the half way mark of the YSP MADE exhibition...but don't worry, the exhibition doesn't end till the 27th of Feb so there is still lots of time to pop down to York to see the show and take in the beautiful gardens that surround it.
