The Tayberry Gallery - A new stockist

Double Floral Wing Necklace
Silver, labradorites and smokey quartz
The Edinburgh Festival seems to have flown in and almost out again. Since the Open Studios I've been doing the 'Dazzle' thing and selling some fantastic jewellery at Dovecot studios. The exhibition is just brilliant and what a treat it has been working in such a lovely venue. There is still another week to go so if you haven't been, do pay us a visit.

Apart from 'dazzling' at Dovecot I've been getting some work together for a new outlet, The Tayberry Gallery. I've not paid the gallery on Princes Street in Perth a visit yet, but hoping to have a weekend outing soon to take a look. The necklace above is one of the pieces on display there just now.

Next week when Dazzle is over, I'll be back in the studio full time. It will hopefully be the beginning of new ideas and designs that will hopefully develop into that special piece for The Goldsmiths Bursaries Exhibition, I was talking about earlier in the year. Now I can finally get down to some stone setting.
Watch this space.

I can't believe the Open Studios has been and gone once again! This time around there were four floors of artists and makers to visit in their studios. The opening night was fantastic! I had just a couple of free moments to spare to dash outside to the communal space in the new 'Coburg Loft' to check how busy we were! Although I didn't manage to get any photos of the opening night, here are some of our displays in our new studio, a couple of new designs by me and also the fantastic flowers by my good friends Natalya and Fiona who go by the name of Pyrus. I only wish I was a better writer to be able to describe what they're all about. Take a look at their blogspot where you'll find some beautiful images of their floristry and a peak at they're ideas and inspirations. If you're planning a wedding in or around Edinburgh and haven't organised your florist yet, look no further! All their flowers are organically grown on their own farm in East Lothian. 

If you would like to be put on the Coburg mailing list, just drop me a line and you'll be sent an invite for the Private View in December.

I'll be back here very soon :-)
