Oh my word - how mad was that month of April !!
As it comes to a close I've just pulled up my diary to finally chat to you - WOW !!.
So here we go - I hope you're sitting comfortably as I've got lots of exciting things to waffle on about .....
I am happy to tell you that your application for ACJ's 2018 selling show at the New Ashgate Gallery has been successful and you have been selected as one of our 25 makers to exhibit
9 June to 21 July 2018
ACJ - Choice: Summer
The Association for Contemporary Jewellery presents Choice: Summer a selling show of new jewellery in paper, plastics, silver, gold & diamonds, with retail prices from £30 - £1,500.
ACJ members work in a wide variety of styles, using both traditional and very new techniques, all made to high standards - very wearable art.
This is a very very exciting start to the summer - wooohoo - I'm so pleased to be involved.
They're a great association of very exciting makers and it's definitely worth checking them out - especially if like me you don't quite work in traditional ways or with traditional materials;
or even if you do it's definitely worth a look and even a join !!
The Private View is on 8th June from 6pm - 8pm and all are welcome.
So if you happen to be anywhere close by it would be lovely to see you.
Here are 5 of the 10 pieces I will be exhibiting - all photos were taken by the very talented

'Mrs Secret Beatle Head'
A group of ‘art-jewellery’, ‘wearable art’ and ‘contemporary jewellery’ makers.
Working collectively to exhibit, promote and sometimes challenge the notion of what jewellery is all about.
I've included just a small selection of our members work but there are many many more that
unfortunately I've not got space to add
(please be aware that links under photos are not active)
So ...... !!
I have become totally obsessed with our collective 'Precious'
Born originally and secretly on Facebook in October 2017, we decided this week to go public and open up the world of 'precious' to Instagram;
WOW what a response !
We have been growing daily and now have members from as far away as Japan, Russia,
America, Vienna and many many more global destinations !!
Big plans are a-foot to start exhibiting together and I'll be up-dating you all regularly
(she says hoping that her blogging will become a more regular occurrence !!!!)
