Something for the weekend

Posted on: Saturday, August 27, 2011

Today I’d just like to share a pair of earrings I made recently for a bespoke order.
I have combined super shiny teal and purple baroque pearls which are around 8-9mm in size, but the design is kept dainty by using very fine sterling silver wire.
Have a great Bank Holiday weekend, whatever you get up to :)

Postcards from France part 2

Posted on: Wednesday, August 24, 2011

French Street View – I just love French streets, and snapped quite a few, as you can see! Take a walk with me down my favourites from my holiday this year.

 Blois – a fantastic example of a Roman road, maybe? That road stretches all the way to the horizon. 
We’re just at the top of a flight of over 100 steps.

I’ll be sharing some more of my photos soon :)

New exhibition – Bonhoga Gallery, Shetland

Posted on: Thursday, August 18, 2011

This week a collection of my work has gone all the way to Shetland to be included in a summer exhibition in the Bonhoga Gallery, in Weisdale Mill, Shetland.

Here’s why I’m excited:


Bonhoga means ‘my spiritual home’ and we hope this has become a home for the arts in Shetland.

Opened in April 1994, Bonhoga Gallery at Weisdale Mill is the first purpose-built visual and applied art gallery in Shetland and the most northerly in the UK, showing a programme of local, national and international art and craft exhibitions. 

It was one of the key early projects in the work of the Shetland Arts Trust and important in that it centred arts policy outwith Lerwick. Situated on the west side of Shetland, Weisdale Mill was once part of the estate of Flemington known today as Kergord. 

Ten shows are held each year in the main gallery with take-away shows of art and craft in the Lower Gallery also changing ten times annually.  A short film programme is shown in the stairwell. An education and outreach programme accompanies most shows.

They are currently hosting a children’s illustrator exhibition curated by Julia Donaldson, no less, which if you have small children is very exciting.

I know that Shetland is a bit of a way to pop in, however many tourists each year visiting these beautiful islands. I hope one day to be one of them!
