So have made 3 men rings ........... I was asked by a gallery in Devizes if I did any rings for men, they were looking for something that was defintitely handmade and for men so I came up with these 3. The wrap ring I have made for a long time and have made a few for men over the years but the other 2 are new .... quite inoffensive but definitely handmade so I am hoping they like them ..... if interested email me your ring size. Everything is sterling silver ......

Coincidentally, I saw this article on men's bangles ..... will have to come up with some new designs now .......

Have to mention Susan Boyle or SuBo (that must have been an indication of her fame, she got a nickname within a month of being on TV). These reality TV shows are fantastic entertainment but it is beginning to show now how dangerous it all can be. Of course we all think we want the fame and the life that goes with it (or not) but in reality only a few are equipped to deal with it. Most people who pursue it from a young age are prepared for it but even then there are a few who don't quite make it. I really don't mean to rant I just wanted to say that Susan Boyle look likes she could deal with it all, needs time out and some help which I am sure the show is providing ............. best of luck to her.

I went off on a sales trip last week, visited some galleries/shops that I have sold to in the past and got some great orders. Now I am busy ordering/making etc .......... I checked out a few places in Cheltenham as I don't sell there so hopefully I can generate some new customers as well ........ I also saw some great countryside ....... particularly liked Devizes (Bluestone Gallery) and Bishops Castle ........... beautiful places.

Off to London tomorrow for a photo shoot for my daughter!!
