Hello All

I've decided to call it a day with this blog as I just never seem to have time to update it!

You can still find me on my website, Twitter and Facebook

Thank you and good night!

Brighton 5 Ways Artists' Open Houses

Firstly, have I really not posted anything on here since LAST YEAR? I'm quite shamefaced.  I'm basically blaming social media for my apalling blogging of late.  I update my Facebook and Twitter much more frequently, honest!

So, enough of the excuses, I'm popping in to tell you that I'm showing my jewellery as part of Brighton Artists' Open Houses this May. I'll be at 3 Florence Road in talented ceramicist Sylph Baier's house, exhibiting alongside Wolfram Lohr's beautiful leather accessories, Tanja Ufer's jewellery, textiles, lighting, the list goes on! There will be a cafe in the garden run by Bee's cakery so you will be fed and watered too.

Click here for your invition, and visit the website for details of all the incredible artists who are taking part in houses all over town. Perfect if you like a nose around other people's houses (who doesn't) and want to see some great art and craft into the bargain.

Free Tickets to Open Studios!

It's Cockpit Open Studios time (next weekend to be precise)! I'll be selling my wares in both Holborn and Deptford sites this year, and as always it looks set to be a great event. No need to schlep along the High Street in search of Christmas presents - come and see behind the scenes at Cockpit and buy beautiful accessories, jewellery, homewares and more direct from the makers.

Come along and have a glass of mulled wine with us - I'll be in Studio E2R in Holborn, and 206 at Deptford.

If you need any further persuasion, I have
6 free tickets to give away (usually £5 joint ticket or £3 Deptford only). Just email me with your name and address to be entered into the draw!

Holborn: 25-27 November

Deptford: 2-4 December

'Electric' opens at the RBSA (Royal Birmingham Society of Artists) today.  I was happy to see they've used my Green Amethyst Encrusted Bracelet in the publicity. 

In the RBSA's words, 'On show are a selection of the nation’s most celebrated designer makers who are exhibiting their latest collections of contemporary silver and gold jewellery, alongside ceramics and silverware.'  Pictured above are Kathryn Hinton's fabulous faceted silver bowls and Nobuko Okumura's intriguing jewellery.

'Electric' runs from 7 November 2011- 13 January 2012.

A little peek at my stand at Origin....it was nearly a month ago but life has been a bit of a blur since then - making making making for the lovely new stockists I met there!

You may notice as well that it doesn't say Glint on my sign.  I've decided to start working under my own name, reflecting that I'm not a big company, I make everything myself.  Many of my galleries refer to me as Kate Wood anyway, so this makes life a bit simpler (a good thing in my book).  You can still get to my website from the old address, but I'm moving it over to www.katewoodjewellery.com

You can see more photos on my Facebook page (which is updated more frequently than this blog!).

Win a free ticket for Origin

After a lot of anticipation and preparation Origin is just around the corner. I'm really excited to be exhibiting there next week!  It's an epic show, with  over 200 makers in one convenient location - Old Spitalfields Market in London. Spitalfields has a special place in my heart as it's where my jewellery business was born - I started out selling my wares at the market. 

The show is on from 22-28 September and you can find me on stand D24, where I'll be showing under my own name, Kate Wood.  There will be some brand new pieces as well as lots of baubles from my Cluster, Terrain and Pompom collections.

So...I'd love you to come.  I have two free tickets to Origin (usually £10 or £8 in advance) to give away!

If you'd like one, all you need to do is sign up for my mailing list and email me with your name and postal address. I'll pick the winners at random on Thursday night (15th September).
