The Great Northern in progress

We have been working away at MCDC to prepare for the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair. I have been working on some new pieces and have been lucky enough to have some one to one stone setting teaching to add something new to my work, and I’m hooked!

GNCCF opens tonight with a special private view if you’d like to join us, or we will be open from tomorrow until Sunday (12 – 15 October)

. . . some of my work in progress, some finished pieces, and setting up our stand yesterday at Upper Campfield Market . . .

Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair

Thirteen makers from Manchester Craft & Design Centre are busy creating new work for this years, 10th anniversary Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair

The makers work in various disciplines and will be showcasing their jewellery, textiles, silversmithing, pewter, glass and leather on Stand 20. This is an important annual event for us and it is extra exciting to be part of the events 10th anniversary show

Come and visit us, and meet us, on Stand 20, and why not combine it with a visit to MCDC!

Wraps collection . . .

Wraps are something I have been making since graduating, they were the result of being inspired by handwriting, looking at the overlapping and interweaving lines drawn by the hand. Wraps were originally used in combination with the various other contrasting elements. Gradually they have developed into pieces on to their own, useful if you are wearing a necklace for instance with a wrap element along others, you may prefer to wear wrap studs for example, keeping it simple.

They remain an element amongst other contrasting elements, and they are also an established collection of their own comprising of nice weighty and tactile bangles which you may have spotted in my online shop already, there are also studs, necklaces, more recently brooches in the collection, and now I have a brand new hanging wrap earring that features a hand drawn silver lozenge top element. All are available in black or white sterling silver, and are now all available online . . .
