What a great summer we've had so far! Since the Craft at Coburg exhibiton last month, things have been pretty hectic between working on upcoming exhibitions and sipping the odd pear cider or fruit beer in the sun!

The 'Craft at Coburg' Exhibition went very well indeed with the opening night bringing in crowds of people. The hustle and bustle may have prevented many from seeing everything, however sales throughout the exhibition proved that people returned to have another look with a view to buying.
Above are a few images of the jewellery I made especially for this exhibiton and my display as a whole in the gallery itself. I wanted each piece to look special and to sit together as a group like a work of art. Displaying them in frames this way, I think I achieved just that.
Hopefully this will be the first of many Craft at Coburgs!

Just now I 'm working on a number of exhibitons including our summer Open Studio weekend (see Forthcoming exhibitions on right hand side) and trying to restock some of my outlets.
All is going to far!

I don't think I have mentioned that Coburg House Studios has a new website! Click here to view it! Information on the Open Studios is there!
