Its a fantastic new space and i feel so lucky to finally have it made. Christmas orders are in full swing- so I’m currently working away making lovely jewellery to send to my retailers for the Christmas season. as always- my website is open for business. so if you spot anything you like- i make to order and usually have the piece to you in a week. Or if you have anything particular in mind- let me know- i love making something new and special!
On my brief maternity leave- theres a lot of planning and designing underway… In between looking after a 9 week old and a 2 year old- a new collection is being signed and very exciting… a new studio is being built! The studio is near completed- just waiting on interior walls and electrics- then we’re ready to go! So looking forward to decking the studio and organising my machinery and tools! The studio is a 4 x 3m Steeltech home office- fully insulated and wired. Only 2 more weeks until I’m back making and i honestly can’t wait! Taking only 2.5 months maternity leave can be hard- but as a self-employed person- thats life! I count myself lucky however- i can my babies to work…
Our latest project-over 9 months in the making! Our little boy finally arrived on July 26th. So for the next few weeks- i’ll be focusing all my energy,love and time on mothering- and loving it! Tools are down,studio door is shut and the pendant drill is silent. In the mean time- big plans are taking place and coming to fruition-so watch this space! We’ll be back again in October with plenty of new treats. Check out my stockists for a fix of beautiful jewels! x
