Fruits of the day...
I am working away madly on a collection of work that is going to the Red Door Gallery in Edinburgh on friday. As you can see above, I finished one of the new pieces I have made ... (I posted the paint-up design for this new leaf necklace a week or so ago)...and just have to finally varnish the carving (to seal in the stain) and set the leaf by pushing over the claws. The rest of the collection is coming on well too...I have made a big chunky ring with an enormous dove-grey pearl on it, that I would quite like for myself, but it is a bit small for me, so off to the gallery it goes too!
I am also going to be printing some of the vintage Irish linen doilies (that I use in many of my shots) with my pattern designs, for use in the display at the gallery...so they should be fun. I will post some images of them when they are all done...
I had some wonderful news yesterday...I was accepted to show at 'One Year On' at New Designers this coming June/July! I am so excited, as I really feel this will be a great boost for business, and will be great for me to have an important deadline to work towards. I am now, however, officially broke as I have to get my big cheque away tomorrow to pay for it! Oh well...speculate to accumulate I guess! :)
I will try to post tomorrow..but if I don't manage, you will know that I am still beavering away stringing, and setting and invoicing into the wee hours of the morning!
Have a great evening all, xox
