Artwave Festival in Lewes (18th Aug - 2nd Sep)
New Designers - One Year In
A selection of my work will be on show at The Workshop Lewes from the 18th August for 2 weeks as part of the Artwave Festival. I am one of ten emerging jewellery designers to have been selected for the showcase along with work from the likes of Louis Jane and her beautiful contemporary enamal work.
The Workshop Lewes is an established jewellery workshop and showroom that displays the work of many jewellers alongside those selected for this showcase. Artwave is the annual festival of artists and makers from Lewes, Seaford, Newhaven and surrounding villages and is celebrating its 25th year in 2018. With 153 venues across the festival there will be lots to see - do pop along.
Goldsmiths Centre Highlight on Getting Started Alumni
After weeks of preparation and hard work I am pleased to say I am here at New Designers - One Year In! It's been an exciting and exhilarating experience so far. If you are planning to come along I would be delighted if you dropped by and visited my stand and see my work displayed. You can find me by coming up the main escalator and following the gangway on the right hand side all the way to room 322.
New Designers opening times are: Thursday 28 June: 10am – 9pm; Friday 29 June: 10am – 5pm; and Saturday 30 June: 10am – 5pm

Pearl Exhibition at The Scottish Gallery
Goldsmiths’ Centre in London have written about their Getting Started alumni from this year who will be exhibiting at New Designers. It’s great introduction to the 10 of us that will be showing as part of the curated One Year In showcase next week. I am so looking forward to catching up with all of these guys and seeing their fantastic new work. Hope to see you there.
Joining the London Creative Network
I am delighted to share that I am showing work in The Scottish Gallery’s Pearl exhibition in June. An exhibition celebrating the use of pearls in contemporary jewellery featuring work from: Marianne Anderson, Ella Fearon-Low, Elizabeth Jane Campbell, Etsuko Sonobe, Ruth Tomlinson and Misun Won. I have made some new pieces for the show including these deep blue Flying Cloud Earrings with gold - I love the slightly classical twist that these colours bring to this design. The exhibition is live online from today.
Brooches are back.
This week I have been at Cockpit Arts studios having induction sessions for the London Creative Network (LCN) programme. I am really excited to be part of this dynamic offering and have already met some great fellow craftspeople and artists. Find out more about LCN at Cockpit.
Janet Fitch has featured my work in her April Column on the return of the brooch in Jewellery Focus Magazine. It's lovely to see my work alongside talented makers such as Melanie Georgacopoulos and Amanda Denison. I really am passionate about brooches, wearing them and making them so this feels very apt. Janet also included collector Joanna Sterling who acquired my 3 Queens Brooch for her collection in 2017. See the full 3 page article here.
