Time is flying by, need to think about Christmas shopping soon and get organised.
I have been making some earrings which will be great as Christmas presents, priced between £12 - 20 so hopefully they will sell well. I am taking them to a few shops and galleries to stock them up for Christmas.
Went to London last week ....... the Ethical Fashion Expo was good but not for jewellery or materials that I use ...... I went to the Design Museum to have a look round but it was a bit disappointing, not much there. Dealt with a lady having an epileptic fit on the tube on my way home!

This is one of my first ranges, Luna. It is popular and I have rings, earrings to match. I am working on a new range that is based on Luna consisting of several small domes soldered together.
This pendant sells for about £85 www.thejewelleryroom.co.uk each one is different of course as I reticulate the piece of silver.
I was asked to quote for an amazing commission to make a typeof sword pendant which was line with diamonds. Way out of my league but interesting so I passed dtails on of people who might be able to make it.
Looking forward to watching Ugly Betty tonight .......

Simple earrings .... small hoops with leaf pattern discs.... in sterling silver ....
Had a curry night last night (well sort of, 4 of them had salmon as they don't eat curry). Hassle to cook curry for 5 and salmon for 4 but hey it was fun and there is leftovers which is great as curry tastes better second time around.
Have finished my new pieces so I can take it show customer tomorrow in Lancaster and Garstang and London next week ......

This is an image of some new sterling silver earrings I made this week. They came from some jewellery I saw whilst on holiday in Ibiza, we wandered around the market in San Antonio and there was some great contemporary jewellery ....... I am making a pendant to match but have to do some resin earrings first that a customer had ordered.
Its been a good week, some bright sunny days and I am getting back in to my running. Seemed to have slow down a lot but I am still doing the same distances.
Hoping to go to to the cinema this afternoon to see Grown Ups .......

I have attached images of the new range ... bit late but have been busy .... it is called Fickle ........... I am just in the process of getting it out there ready for Christmas.
Had a great break in Ibiza, will post some images.
My mother in law died over the summer so that was a sad occasion. The day before she went in to hospital was her 81st brithday and I made her ring that she had admired. She left me a phone message to say thanks and that was the last time she spoke to me sadly. She has a stroke and never recovered from it.
I did a couple of Art Fairs, one in Skipton which was great, busy, good people and lots of sales. The one in Shipley was also great, busy with goood people but hardly any sales! Some you win, some you lose ...........

Made this sterling silver eternity ring pendant engraved for the birth of Jack on 16/06/2010 for his Mum or Dad to wear. A nice newborn gift.
I have been working on 2 new ranges which I hope to get ready for Art in the Pen in Skipton over the weekend of 14th/15th August. I love both of them, they look great. Will post images over the next few weeks.
I have been trying to lose weight for my holiday, I have 3 weeks, want to lose 2lbs per week, have managed it this week but have worked hard! And now I discover that Ben and Jerry's ice cream is on offer, 2 for £5 at Booths' supermarket! RESIST!
