It’s my third birthday in the studio / shop at Manchester Craft and Design Centre and I still love it like it’s day one.
I am so appreciative of all the lovely customers I’ve had over those years and all the appreciation, feedback, encouragement and odd conversations, I’ve had a few good odd ones! It’s great to see how people react to the work and the unexpected ways that links them to it. It’s been great to develop collage commissions with people, assembling and archiving their treasured paper memories. And it’s been brilliant to make bespoke jewellery, tailored to people’s wants, tastes and budgets!
Thank you everyone who has stepped into my little space and enjoyed being there! Your support means I can keep doing what I was made to do! Thank you x

. . . where I think, design, experiment, make, display, meet, discuss, re-home . . .
I’ve been working and selling at Studio 3 (#Studio3 !) for over ten months now and feeling very snug and at home. My collection is evolving the benefit of having the work around me to refer to, it’s quite an experience after many years of working on relatively small collections at a time then sending them straight off to a venue, that you often can’t visit! It makes a huge difference to developing pieces.
Between Christmas and New Year I have been moving studio, again, but this time still within the craft centre, to a bigger work and display space in studio 3, sharing with Linzi Ramsden ceramics. A very exciting new space with a great presence in the craft centre. We have been busy painting and setting up and are nearly ready for our launch mid March, a Saturday yet to be confirmed! We will also be curating a display of invited makers of various disciplines in three month exhibitions. Details will follow!
Forming Words at Flow ends on 17th May, but fear not, it will then tour to Manchester Craft & Design Centre, opening on 7 July and running until 9 November, and while you’re visiting you can come and see me and my ever growing collection of jewellery & collages in lovely Studio 6! I’m very pleased to say that Flow have asked me to continue with them after the show and so I will be working on a new group for them over the next few weeks.
I’ve also added some new pieces to lovedazzle . . .
