In these unusual times I am sad not to be able to share with you the wonderful experience that is Art Weeks, I would have been happy to exhibit my work and demonstrate some of the techniques employed in creating my four collections of jewellery. Working with repeated textured silver units and combining with cork, cord and semiprecious beads I enjoys much the process of making that usually culminates in a necklace or pair of earrings.
This year I would have been exhibiting my jewellery alongside Graham Lester:Paper Sculpture and Up-cycled Bowls and Helen White:Ceramics at the wonderful fitch and fellows gallery on the Buttermarket in Thame, www.fitchandfellows.com
Once the world opens again for business you can find a selection of my work on display throughout the year so please do pop in. I will be posting on instagram each day throughout Art Weeks including tiny earrings, perfect for gifting so please feel free to follow.
Under the current circumstances please do contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org or DM via instagram should you see anything you might like to discuss further, I do not have a selling platform but can take payment via the SumUp app who have made it possible during this difficult period. I will be offering free postage and a donation of 25% of sales to Aylesbury Vineyard Foodbank.
I wish you all good health and safety and hope you enjoy the virtual festival.
Hopefully I will be exhibiting at The Oxfordshire Museum in Woodstock with the Oxfordshire Craft Guild in November.www.ocg.co.uk

I have worked in various studios since 1996 but currently work at the end of my garden in Aylesbury where I can negotiate the runnings of a busy family and a small business.
In the past I have worked for costumiers and couturiers, had work featured on TV and film and in magazines. I've been lucky enough to pick up the occasional award at trade events and have exhibited throughout the UK, Europe and America.
