I can’t believe we’re in March already.
February really flew past with commissions and making stock for the wedding show. The wedding show was a great success this year. It was much busier, I was in a better position and got so much interest with a few clients going ahead with bespoke wedding ring commissions.
Then it was off to Munich to visit Inhorgenta, the massive jewellery trade show. I am writing a separate post about the show as there is so much to say.
Also just before I left for Munich I found out my hard work is starting to pay off. Back in December I applied for a local award scheme and I’ve been successful in gaining the Dundee Craft Award. The award helps artists research and develop new work or attend courses related to their practice.
This is fantastic news as it will allow me to take part in a 4 day short course in gem stone carving and cutting. I’m really excited about learning new jewellery skills and it’ll help launch my creative practice to a new level.
The course is later this year but I will also post about this and put up images of the stones I create so watch this space.
