Haven't really blogged in a while, been busy doing the exhibition down on the seafront. Its going really well so far, apart from the few days of torrential rain in the week. The seafront is dead when it rains as you are right in the elements, its wind and rain to the extreme there, so the only life around you is some very wet seaguls! Anyway, here are a few photos of it so far...if your in Brighton come check us out, you can find out more info here....











Goodbye, untill next time!

September happenings...

Been Away on a little holiday to Wales. We drove down to Cornwall and picked up my Dads campervan and then drove up to Wales, via Dartmoor. It is so beautiful in Wales. It reminds me alot of Cornwall, but with more sheep!!! And big news...Steve proposed in Wales, so I am now officially engaged! I'm still a bit in shock as I wasn't expecting it at all! I thought he was going to pull a cake out of his hat! I have a fabulous ring that I'm having resized, I went to the jewellers studio on friday to have a "fitting" and it should be done by my birthday! Will post photos of it soon! But bewarned, I am not a diamond girl! Expect the unexpected!

 









 Came back from holidays to set up the Makers Boutique Exhibition at Brighton Fishing Quarter Gallery, on the seafront in Brighton in the Arches near the pier and the Carousel! Been busy busy busy!!!



 Its hard work for Bean!

 I must have the best walk to work at the moment! It takes about an hour to walk to the gallery from my house and I just cut down to the seafront and stroll along the promenade! Theres always loads of stuff going on, yesterday I saw a plane sky writing a heart in the sky for some newly weds, which was pretty cool! Unfortunately today the heavens have opened today, which is not so nice!
  
Been busy making stock for the exhibition and for the shop I mentioned before that me and Katy are opening in Cornwall.  Heres some quick photos I took of the new jewellery I've been making, as well as plates and driftwood boats. I will be adding to the stock again soon with some new ideas, as it won't be open for a while, more about that soon!





Goodbye, untill next time!

Socks!

 I love fun socks, just found these ones in Brighton the other day by a Japanese brand called Antipast, at £28 a pop they are not cheap but with my birthday coming up soon I have been dropping lots of unsubtle hints to Steve!!!! Haha!!!!






Been making lots of driftwood boats for the new shop in Hayle and the Brighton Fishing Quarter Exhibition, I'm realy pleased with them, these ones are much much bigger than the previous ones!



Vicki wins the sea glass necklace competition this month, just emailed her the good news!

Goodbye, untill next time...
