I was at the Manor House, West Bromwich over the weekend and it went really well! Thank you to everyone who came along. It was great to see some familiar faces as well as some new ones. I had a fab day, and although it was freezing cold I had to re stock the table a few times!
Had a little experiment with a different layout for my table in comparison to my first fair and I think this version is working better. I'd like people to feel welcome to pick things up and perhaps try rings on etc. and I think this display opens it up a little more and is more inviting to the public. If you can see the little image, let me know what you think though!
I can now start my christmas holidays and have a little bit of a rest before I get in gear in the new year, making a new collection for Sock Fair, Loughborough, in March.
Well, here we go! The start of a new blog. The first thing that comes to mind is 'Jo, what should you write?' Any ideas?
Well today has been mostly commission making. A gorgeous green Emerald stone set ring and a beautifully simple circle necklace. They just both need polishing now, but that will have to wait for another day. Once they're finished I promise I'll include some images along with this post!
Also on the agenda today, applying for craft fairs in 2015.... The big art show, Shropshire in July and West Dean Design and Craft fair, Near Chichester in June. With any luck, I'll be accepted for one or maybe both!! I'll keep you posted should I be accepted for either of them.
Signing off for today!
