Exhibiting at Made in Clerkenwell

As I mentioned in a previous post, I am renting a jewellery studio at Craft Central as of today! I am really excited about it and I'll be sharing my progress on the blog over the coming year.

I am fortunate that I will be in the studio on time for the next open studios event, Made in Clerkenwell. I'd love to see you there. Here is what it is and (most importantly!) how to get free tickets!

What?
Made in Clerkenwell 'is a bi-annual celebration of Craft Central resident designer-makers and Network members. Held across two Victorian buildings, this is an opportunity for the public to 'behind the scenes' and explore the studios of our renowned design community.

You'll find jewellery, fashion, interior products, ceramics, accessories and traditional crafts by over 100 UK designer makers. Choose a gift, commission a unique piece, find a bespoke design service or just browse ... this shopping treat is topped off by meeting the maker.'

I will be in my studio talking to visitors and selling some of my work. I will have some of my silver jewellery and some of my sweetie jewellery available for sale.


When?
Wednesday 18 May, 5 - 8pm
Thursday 19 - Friday 20 May, 12 - 8pm - I plan to be in on these days
Saturday 21 May 12 - 5pm

Where?
Craft Central have two buildings near Farringdon station where they rent out studios to artists and crafters. Your ticket covers entry to both buildings

21 Clerkenwell Green, London, EC14 0DX

I will be in Studio 36 (right opposite the lift!), 33-35 St John’s Square

I hope to see you there on Thursday or Friday!

Jewellery inspiration - unusual stone settings

I am pretty addicted to pinterest and love that we have so much access to inspiration as jewellers there. I have recently been drawn to unusual stone settings and I find it useful to consider how the jeweller has done it as it gives me a jumping off point for ideas. Here are a few innovative designs that I love.

I have decided to announce the theme for the coming month a week before the start of the month. This is to give people time to think about their designs, particularly those that are busy and have a lot to fit in.

The theme for February 2019 is .... music and lyrics

2018 Black Friday deals for metal clay jewellers

It's Black Friday again and even before the day arrived there were lots of deals around (and surely more to come). Black Friday is fairly new to the UK but it's always good to look out for a deal! Here are some of the best I've seen for metal clay artists. Do share any I've missed in the comments and I'll add them in

Clay, materials and tools
Cookson Gold has discounts on clay and tools

Jewellers Academy has 50% off their courses including 3 metal clay courses. Tip: buy the bundle with Julia Rai's metal clay charms course and my stone setting torch fired course as it's the same cost as my course on its own! There's also the new Fancy bezels, prongs and bails course by Julia Rai which is great. Use c…
