This weekend I'm one of the featured designers who will be attending a Jewellery Festival at Studio 61 in Lea, nr Matlock, Derbyshire. The event will be on Saturday and Sunday, and I will be there on Sunday, along with my good friend Kerrie We will be demonstrating how we make our jewellery pieces and there will be lots of examples to see and buy if you so wish. If you're venturing into the Derbyshire Dales over the weekend please stop by and say hello.
In preparation, I've been beavering away and making some new chainmaille pieces and amazingly I have finally got some pictures of jewellery to show you - wonders will never cease!

My jewellery mojo may have disappeared for a while, but my hands haven't been entirely idle!! I've rediscovered the art of knitting. It all started when I made a few baby items for friends who were expecting this year. I then took a trip to a local wool shop and was bitten by the bug. I was amazed at the different types of yarns that are now available, my new stash is growing rapidly and I've taken quite a liking to socks!! I already have a few requests for Christmas presents. I try to do my knitting in the evenings now rather than letting it encroach on my jewellery making time.
My very first pair of socks! They are sooooooo comfortable.
My Shrug - this won me a years free subscription to a knitting magazine!
The baby cardigan that started it all!!
