Christmas has caught up with me at last, after we had a delightful skive week in Majorca in half term :-) I'm busy working on lovely new winter collections to celebrate this dark, atmospheric, party time of year. I'm booked in to show my jewellery at 3 really cool Christmas Fairs that are a joy to go to: starting with the cool Bedruthan on above on the 26th-27th November. It's such a lovely, chilled out venue with mid century decor, cosy modern atmosphere and sweeping sea-views to look at while you shop for handmade pressies.

I'm making lots of dark, oxidsed silver like winter branches, organic fused rings coupled with mossy green and amber stones. I've collected gorgeous Edwardian buttons in jet black and jewel shades, reminiscent of Venice. And of course I've gone for party maximalism with full-on sparkly vintage brooch and lace statement necklaces...just add a little black dress. And maybe gold trainers...

The next place you can try and maybe treat yourself to some of my new winter collections is at the ace Etsy Made Local Christmas Fair in wonderful St Ives, Cornwall. I'm helping to organise this one and it looks like it's going to be really cool: we've got some fabulous makers showing their wares as well as live music, delish middle Eastern food and even a cocktail party at the preview on Friday night! 

So Cecil will be there :-)

And this willl be the last fair I do for Christmas: in the beautiful historic harbour town of Fowey. It's always a really busy, Christmassy weekend with loads of atmosphere and food treats to buy for Christmas as well as cool, handmade gifts. Wrap up warm though...see you there!
