I first saw Heather Shaw’s jewellery in Dean Cough Design Shop in Halifax over a year ago, and I was drawn to the style, colour palette and casual retro feel of her creations. Next I saw her at the Harrogate B.C.T.F in March when I just took a card as she was busy with a client.

After contacting her to let her know I had included her on my blog about the event here, she said ‘let’s meet up’.

So I was delighted to be invited to an open studio evening in Huddersfield by Heather the other week, and looking forward to properly meet her at last! We had a great chat, about all things jewellery, great for a WAHM like me not working within a creative studio community. She was very warm and willing to share her experiences with me.

Heather’s work will be at Heart Gallery in June for their new exhibition, details below. More of Heather’s work can be seen on her website
