There is still a few days left to visit various artists in the Forth Valley area! Open studios is on until Sunday 16th June. I've been exhibiting at Back Lane Studio in Stirling (see my previous blog post for details) Here are a few photos from The Back Lane, enjoy.

Open Studios!

It's that time of year again - Forth Valley Open Studios. I have jewellery available here (see pictures below) and I'm "on duty" on Tuesday 11th June. I'm very much looking forward to the Back to Back studios in Stirling, and I'm also hoping to get round as many local artist's studios in the Forth Valley area as I possibly can! I normally start my "Christmas shopping" at Open Studios! (I know, I know... )

Making Jewellery Wraps

I have been needing jewellery wraps for a while now, finally at the weekend I decided to dig out my trusty sewing machine make my own!  They were great fun to make and the advantage being that I was able to tailor them to my own specifications. They will be so useful for when I'm going out to visit stockists to show them my jewellery. And yes, I finally found a use for some of that wonderful screen printed fabric that I bought at the car boot sale (see my previous post) I have more photos of the creation of my jewellery wraps on my face book page by clicking here FACEBOOK PHOTOS/JEWELLERY WRAPS

Jewellery wrap well underway, note my funky car boot sale fabric!
This did not happen overnight, I still consider myself a beginner
 at sewing so a lot of my spare time was invested in making them up 
Ooops did not notice the massive thread when I took this photo!
 Beautiful lace on the front (yes, another car boot sale fabric find)
My finished wraps, I can't wait to make more!
I'm definitely going to practice my sewing skills, because these would be great to sell - Watch this space!
