Made10 interview

A little interview with me has just gone up on the Made blog.  I'm exhibiting at Made10, Brighton's Design and Craft Fair, from 19-21 November.  Thanks Anne-Marie!  And thank you Jo for the photos, I know I'm not an easy subject!

From the sea

I'm working on new collection at the moment, which I'm aiming to launch in time for Christmas.  The inspiration this time has come out of the woods and into the sea.

It's been gestating for a few months now and I've been playing with some new elements - hammered, soldered closures which are a change from the wire-wrapped chain endings I usually use - these are working really well with the new pieces which use LOTS of chains!  The pinned beading is still there of course and the use of multiple chains is enabling me to really build up a lot of texture.

I'm quite excited about these new pieces and I hope you will be too!  I should be able to share some photos with you next month, so check back here or sign up to the newsletter (see side bar) to keep updated...
