I’ve just returned from a trip to Dubai and Kuwait visiting my brother who lives out there, and it’s been great to discover this part of the world and it’s architecture. My photography has always had a strong influence on my work and I have been adding some images from my travels on instagram.
I’ve been continuing to develop new work, including new necklaces and earrings incorporating coloured beads and pear shaped elements, working towards to shows this autumn:
21-23 November 2014
MADE BRIGHTON, The Design and Craft Fair, takes place in November in the Corn Exchange, part of the Dome Complex by the Royal Pavilion.
The event will be welcoming over 120 innovative and original makers and designers to show and sell their work directly to the public. Beautiful and unique jewellery, textiles, glass, ceramics, furniture and much more across all prices brackets, means the fair provides something for everyone’s taste and budget. A café provides a space to take refreshment and relax.
Tickets: E-tickets are available in advance at £5.00 per person or on the door at £6.50 per person (children under 14 free). This includes the catalogue, listing all exhibitors and a beautiful cotton goody bag – subject to demand!
