Last post for 2021 looking back on another strange year and looking forward to what lies ahead in 2022.
Well how was it for you?
2021 was definitely a year of highs and lows, happiness and sadness too.
It started on a positive note with the launch of my fabulous new website, something that had been on my to do list for at least five years, and thanks to the wonderful "Girl Friday web design" Debbie, I was finally able to cross it off my list. I just wish I had set it up 12 months sooner but hey ho!.
I spent most of the spring, making and listing items of jewellery to my shop
I also had my jewellery in an exhibition at The Orangery Ingestre what a fabulous venue!
In May I closed a large chapter of my life and made the decision to resign my membership of the Staffordshire Artists Co-operative, after twelve years, and remove my jewellery and handmade cards from Gallery at 12 in Eccleshall.
Then came the summer months and I turned my attention towards workshops, after a successful private jewellery making party for a lovely group of ladies I then offered a programme of workshops for the Autumn locally. I also provided my first W.I. talk since 2019, before Covid set in. Hopefully I will be doing more of both workshops and talks again next year.
A selection of my eco aware jewellery also made a return visit to the new revamped Roots Larder in Stafford, you can still find a selection of jewellery there.
The last three months of 2021 saw the return of craft fairs HURRAY!
It was so lovely to get out with my jewellery and sell face to face again.
And of course throughout the year I continued to make new items of jewellery and watch my designs evolve. Please take a look below, at some of my new makes this year
Some you will find over on my shop others are in my craft fair stock and others have sold.
If you would like more details about any of these please contact me.
Thank you for your support this year and
wishing you all a peaceful New Year and here is hoping that 2022 will be kind
