Christmas eve is upon us again. Santa's mince tarts had to be baked today as my gorgeous little twin 8 year old mates dropped by bake with me. Christmas time is always packed with celebration and reflection on the year gone by and hopes for the future.
As always, there has been 'great', 'horrid' and 'every-day fairly peaceful'. times.
It has been lovely reacquainting with the world at large, exhibiting at a range of venues including two new ones, Tidworth Polo and Hickstead. Both these were shared with my gorgeous colleague and fellow silversmith, Lizzie Kershaw.
Loads of new designs - and the little initials, shown at the top of this blog, are ever popular as they are each unique and a pretty good price! The 'log link bracelet' was adapted for a customer who wanted silver and gold mix. I made two versions which I think turned out rather well but I really must update the website to
include new pieces. Those of you who know me
realise that I am hopeless at this internet and marketing stuff. I do try, but I get ridiculously tense and nervous at even the thought of managing the website!
Planning for 2023 is in its early stages now. Juggling clashing dates for exhibitions, sailing abroad with my patient and 'sailor extraordinaire' husband, and mundane commitments makes planning as difficult as ever. If you have any suggestions of where you would like me to exhibit, just shout.
I will, as always, try to continue making simple, beautiful silver (and gold if you wish) pieces for you to wear yourself and give to those you love. Check the exhibitions page of the website to see if I will be somewhere convenient for you.
It only remains for me to hope 2023 brings you fun, good health and peace.
