Getting ready for the shows......

Well as the title says. It is time to build up stock for the Autumn and Christmas shows.
I had an Excellent show at Both Axevale and Taunton. The visitors poured into both shows and it depleted my stock. Both in Ceramics and Jewellery.
I have been busy making stock and completing orders.Here is some eye candy for you to have a look at.

This was my table at Taunton Flower Show

I am having a open studio day at the end of the month, so needing to also build up bits for then. I will coincide with Somerset Arts Week.
I have been practicing my piercing work and finally finished my Dragonfly.


I have also been making some silver bracelets, both plain, hammered and with sentiments on.
The wording is in Latin on the front and translated inside,  "Together Forever" I really love making bracelets and bangles although I really must make a few rings, as I am very low on them.

The new re - decorated studio is working well, with everything in it's own area. I am now up and running with lessons on....
Basic Silver work
