Christmas is a Coming....

Before I new it October had come and gone, so doing the usual rush to build up stock for the November Fairs.
I will be at The Rural Living show in Taunton 26th & 27th at Kings Hall School and at Westlands in Yeovil on 20th Nov. If you are around please pop by and say hello.
I have A few more new Items to show you this month, first a lovely pale pink lampwork and crystal bracelet, coordinated with rose quartz and sterling silver, this is on my Etsy shop at £39.50

Adjustable Sterling Silver ring, with my handmade cabochon.

I have also been making a few Christmas presents for family and friends. I don't see the point in buying mass produced, when you can give a unique piece that you have created.

The ring is the adjustable ring, that one I shall sell and the cabula brooch is a present for a friend.
I will try and blog again in a few weeks time, but I don't know if you noticed the weather last week. There was a foggy morning and the dew seem to hang like glass droplets, I couldn't resist taking this picture.

Falling Leaves

The leaves and apples are now falling off the trees, Autumn is now here after that lovely hot October week.
How many of you are now thinking of Christmas......yes Christmas.
I start my Christmas fairs now  and this year many of my regular customers, would have noticed that I have cut back on the number of shows that I attend.
Reason for that is to have some quality "me" time. I am still doing the larger shows and some small ones that support local charities.
I have bee playing with silver over the last couple of weeks, so here are a few pictures. These items will go on my Etsy shop, unless I sell before hand.
