What a little neglected blog I have! The festival has been and gone, and I have to admit heaving a sigh of relief!
The stall was crazy, really wonderful, and lovely to meet so many customers from all over the world, but my goodness, it was exhausting, and after 10 hours a day chit-chatting and selling away all I wanted to do was crash. But I’m back, and working on new projects, which is always when I feel most inspired to blog.
The next up and coming exhibition is one I am really excited about! It goes back to the very very beginning of my jewellery designing journey in fact. A long time ago (well, four and a bit years ago) I was lucky enough to land a job in the Little Bead Shop in Bruntsfield with the lovely Gil and Emma Baird, and learned so much of what I know now from working there! Emma was the one who introduced me to lampwork, and look where that took me! Anyway, I digress. The Little Bead Shop has been moving with the times and has now gone beyond beads and grown into ACS Jewellery Studio with five fully equipped jewellery benches through the back, and a beautiful gallery space at the front. I’m going to be in the next exhibition they are holding, ‘Made in Scotland’, which features some very talented jewellery designers including some new Duncan of Jordanstone graduates, a handful of ACJ’ers, and the lovely Emma! I’m so excited to be back there!
Made in Scotland
I’ll have to do a wee inspiration/sneak preview post of my work, but in the meantime, hold the date September 14th. Its going to be a fabulous opening night, and it would be wonderful to see you there!

It was brilliant, so much fun and I sold four pieces too, which was the icing on the cake!
I have been back to it today though, and have a few pairs of earrings in red and grey ramping down in the kiln, hopefully there will be some photos of them for you tomorrow.
In the meantime, a couple of photos from the opening!

This is so exciting!
The next Exhibition I will be doing opens in Edinburgh on February 3rd, at Arts Complex in Meadowbank. I will be showing my work alongside eight talented jewellers, and it runs until February 13th. It is free entry, and if you are around I think you should definitely come and see it!
Hope to see you there, I still have a lot of work to do for it!
