It has been a warm Summer so far here in the Highlands, which is good for those on hols in the hills and on the beaches, but not great for the farmers and gardeners! Despite the lack of rain, the landscape still sings with verdant greens and shocking yellows - and everything feels so alive. I enjoyed a brief visit to Rome to teach a lovely group of polymer ladies there - my first gig for a while. My next class will be held much closer - right here in Nairn, as part of the fab wee annual Nairn Book & Arts Festival in September. On Saturday 15th September, 10am to 4pm (including a free tasty lunch!), I will be teaching a full day workshop based on my "Curves Pendant" designs - go HERE to book. I'm also presenting a talk at the Festival on Tuesday 11th September, 5.30 to 6.30pm, entitled "Scottish Contemporary Jewellery And Modern Materials" (an exploration of new materials and inspiration through the lens of contemporary jewellery designers) - click HERE for the link to book.
Check out my whole range of craft products for ideas and inspiration. Click Shop Tools for more info on my thirteen NEW "Curves" Templates, four NEW sets of "Abstract Marks" Stamps and seven BRAND NEW Cutter Sets. I do hope those of you who love to create will find plenty of inspiration there. I have also added a wide selection of my own NEW work in Shop Jewels - juicy, colourful designs featuring textures and monochrome patterns.
