I can't believe it's September already, I missed doing my August blog post as it was a busy month with the kids off school, we even let them have a break from home schooling! We didn't get to go away as planned back in January but I did take some much needed time off to spend with my family. I hope whatever you got up to you managed to relax and see your loved ones.
There are a couple of things I want to share with you this month, the first is my next virtual show, Made Makers Online. Like many craft show organisers Tutton and Young have been working hard on their virtual shows and I have been working hard filling up my makers gallery. It will go live at 9 am on Saturday 5th September and I'll be making some videos to show off the work for sale, find them on my Instagram on the show weekend.

The second bit of news is that I have been interviewed by The Goldsmiths' Company as part of their #goldsmithsstories campaign, here's what they say about it.
"Goldsmiths stories is a campaign to help makers across the country stay connected during the national lockdown by sharing their stories about creating, making and adjusting to new ways of working."
I spoke to them at the height of lockdown about the importance of family and how jewellery can help you stay connected and holds so much meaning.

I'm still working away on commissions and new pieces, if you see anything you like on my Instagram do get in touch, I am happy to send you more photos and videos and I'm also taking virtual consultations, it's a great way to get a better look at a piece.
