Dorset Team Craft Fair & a Brand New Mardle Made Collection



Wow!  It’s been a busy few weeks round here!  I’m shattered….but I’m super excited because this weekend is the Dorset Team Craft Fair!

I’ve been beavering away on my studio this last couple of weeks making lots of lovely jewellery and I’m excited to be able to share some photos with you today.

I’m even more excited to share with you a NEW COLLECTION I’ve made.  It’s called Halo and is inspired by my Grandparents.  A couple of years ago we were burgled which was horrible!  Amongst other things they took all of my jewellery and almost all of the jewellery my Granddad had ever bought my Grandma……..I was devastated.  I felt like I had let them down, I felt like I hadn’t done a good enough job looking after these sentimental pieces.  

That said, we can’t wallow and when the insurance money came through I decided to buy the kit I needed to start silversmithing.  I couldn’t replace the sentimental jewellery and I thought that if I bought the kit I could remake my jewellery which was stolen and eventually start my own business.  In a strange kind of way it feels like it was almost meant to be.  So in tribute to my Grandparents…who I always feel are with me…..I designed Halo.  I really hope you like it.




And here are some other pieces I’ll be selling on Sunday……

Silver Castings of shells and twigs

Triangle Collection

Sea Caves Collection

Surface of the Sea Collection

Studs

Geometric Agate Earrings

Variety of earrings

Vintage Sterling Silver Charms turned into necklaces

If you are thinking of coming please bear in mind that currently I can only accept cash.  Prices range from £10 for some studs to £70 for the most expensive bangle.  Please come prepared.

There will also be 39 other lovely sellers there, here are my favourites….check them out!

Phew......that was a bit of a long post!  Anywho, I really hope to see some of you at the Craft Fair on Sunday.  I've put my Etsy and Folksy shops on 'holiday mode' in the run up to the craft fair.  If you can't make it to the fair I'll let you know when the shops will be open again.....just in case something has caught your eye!  

Happy Wednesday my lovelies xx
