I’m delighted to say I’m taking part in the prestigious Craft Festival at Bovey Tracey from the 10th to the 12th of September. I’m taking part as a member of Design Nation Cornwall Devon cluster group and I’m really looking forward to exhibiting with 5 amazing members. We will have our own marquee for the group and would love to see you there!
New dendritic agate jewellery
I’ve been working hard to create new one of a kind pieces for the Craft Festival shows and some of them are pictured below. I have new pendants and rings with stunning one of a kind dendritic agates, sure to make each one a true one off. A few of them are combined with rose cut diamonds and all are set in frosted recycled sterling silver. Come see me to view these amazing gems and hear all about them!
New Pebble jewellery
I’ve also made new pieces with beach pebbles, straight from my local beaches on the north Cornish coast! I’m combining them with gems and hand cast silver pebbles too. The middle pendant has a raw grey diamond set to complement the natural look of the pebble and the brushed silver.
10 rings in 10 weeks
You may know of my recent “10 rings in 10 week” project, where I created a one of a kind ring each week over 10 weeks, as a way of rekindling creativity and get to play with new and exciting things. The remaining rings from this will be coming with me as a little mini exhibition on my stand. These rings will be for sale along with the rest of my work. A few of them have sold already and once these 10 rings are gone, they are gone, no more will be made the same. They can however be used as inspiration for new one of a kind pieces, so it’s worth having a good look at them if you’re thinking of commissioning your own ring. You can see some of them below.
Each one comes in a beautiful handmade wooden gift box, created from offcuts and end pieces of characterful oak. These boxes are all one offs and really set the 10 rings apart nicely from my other work. You can see a few of them here.
Meet the maker and Commissions
Doing real events like this is a really important way to get to know my customers and for them to get to know me. Coming to the show is also a great opportunity to talk about a commission or special order, face to face, and once the show is over I can get back in touch with you to discuss how to proceed with a custom piece.
Safety & Tickets
Since we are still in the aftermath (hopefully!) of the Covid pandemic there are certain restrictions on visitors and of course a few precautions in place to keep everyone safe, visitors and exhibitors alike. I will be wearing a face covering, as will all exhibitors, and I would encourage visitors to do so as well. I will also have hand sanitiser on the stand. I will ask customers to look carefully first, ask questions, and only pick things up if needed and of course if you are interested in a piece, you can try it on etc.
