I don’t have a showroom (yet!) but you can meet me at various local craft fairs and hand-made markets in Stamford and surrounding areas. I have updated the Craft Calendar on my website. You can have a look via the link above :-)
This little one has been helping me sort out all the jewellery and packaging for the fairs too! If I forget to take something important I blame it on Millie in advance!

At the moment my adventures in jewellery making are on a go slow and its not very nice. For about a month now I have been suffering from blurred vision on and off. Some days I can see clearly but some days the vision is completely blurred. Been to the optician – nothing wrong with eye sight. Had a whole lot of blood tests including for diabetes. All Fine. I have now been referred to the eye clinic & Fingers Crossed they will know what’s wrong.
So there are days (and quite a lot of them!) when there is no way I can make any jewellery because everything is blurred. I can do some work on the computer because it can be set to large size reading option but I am reluctant to try close work or take on any repair jobs at the moment.

Do you know about Craft Blog UK? Well if you had not heard of it before now you know. You should have a look! Its an excellent resource of blogging tips, social media tutorials and fabulous craft links.
Today I met someone else who I have been talking with for a few months on twitter - Andy Deighton from the Events and Fundraising team of local charity St Barnabas Hospice ( @StBarnabasLinc on twitter). The charity ploughs all the funds it raises back into helping Lincolnshire.
It was a very pleasant meeting and some interesting ideas discussed. Always nice to put a face to name :-)
