A Hopeful & Glorious Weekend!

I am really excited about an upcoming event the weekend after next. Called ‘Hopeful & Glorious’. It’s going to be in Lytham Hall, somewhere I have never been. It will be great to get over to a show in the North West, as I have mostly ventured out in Yorkshire.

I’m going to be there with the talented Chrissie from Hat Therapy and Cathy from CE Leather Goods, but am looking forward to meeting some new people, too.

With a cracking collection of 25 designer/makers, it’s looking to be a great 2 day show – why not come along?

Country Living Fair Harrogate and other events

I have a most exciting, and fast-approaching event on the horizon (gulp) is my third Country Living Fair in Harrogate – in just 3 weeks, to be precise! Exciting for me as I get to meet and chat to so many lovely customers. I was delighted that last year I had some return customers, and am hoping they will find me again this year as I am in a different hall this time around. If you are coming along to the event, you can find me in Hall B on stand B127.

Now, I do happen to have 10 free tickets to give away. Would you like to come along? I will be giving a maximum of 2 per person, on a first come first serviced basis, so don’t hang about!

The tickets give you a free day’s entry to Country Living Harrogate on any of the following days; Thursday 27th, Friday 28th and Sunday 30th. Sorry, but the tickets can’t be used on a Saturday. Please leave a comment below (with a means way of contacting you such as twitter, facebook etc) or use my contact page to register your interest, and I’ll let you know if you are successful. Do pop by and say hello :)

I’m also delighted to be taking part in handful of exhibitions over the coming months, leading up to March, so I’ve created a new page on my website to show the details which you can view here >> Rachel Lucie Events

Right, back to it – I have lots to make and get ready! Good luck :)

Aegean agenda

I must confess that my Aegean necklace and earrings are pieces I designed a while ago. I love them and sold quite a few sets last year at the Country Living Fair in Harrogate, but never actually got them online.

So I have had these pieces on my list a little while, but I’ve been struggling with lighting some of my pieces to take the kinds of pictures I want – the kind that make them look as lovely as they do when they are in my hand, but I think I am finally getting there.

So, here is the Aegean necklace. I have used these gorgeous tear drop shaped chrysocolla beads which come in an amazing range of greeny-turquoisy shades. For this reason, I make each necklace have a graduation from the paler greens to the stronger turquoises, to ensure that you will receive a necklace that looks pretty much like this one.

The matching Aegean earrings are long, but also dainty, and I have used a seed pearl to contrast with the turquoise shades. Because of the variance on the stones, I can guarantee a closely matched pair, but their shade may be at the darker or lighter end. If you have a preference, you can just let me know when ordering which shade you would prefer.

I’m really pleased with this design, I hope you like it!
