A big thank you to everyone who came to the summer open studios at Craft Central.

I just wanted to say a BIIIIIIIIIIIIIG thank you to everyone who visited me over the Open Studios weekend at Craft Central. I had the MOST wonderful time! Your love, support and positive energy was not only amazing, but also incredibly moving. I feel so blessed… Thank you for everything and to those who sent me cards, that was a truly wonderful surprise and incredibly thoughtful… Thank you! 🙂

As many of you will know, this was a very special show for me as it was the first that I hosted from my very own studio and it proved to be not only successful, but wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable. I still cannot believe that I am now in the very same studio that I wished I had all those years ago as a first year jewellery student (I will write the whole story in a separate blog entry later)… I guess wishes really do come true…

I have worked incredibly hard and had a lot of cleaning and painting to do to make the studio look how it does so the compliments were much appreciated. Here’s a look at the first set-up. Still lots to organise and do.

First open solo open studios set up

As I mentioned in an earlier blog entry, I am very proud to be part of Craft Central which is SUCH an amazing organisation. I would like to also take this opportunity to extend thanks to the Craft Central team who work so hard in organising this event, putting in long hours to ensure that everything runs smoothly. Thank you!

The next ‘Made in Clerkenwell’ Open Studio event will be taking place during November and I will announce the dates as soon as they have been confirmed. For those of you who have not visited before, you need to visit us at the next event! Hope to see you there!

But for now on with the orders…
