October 19th 2019

Well…..September became October pretty quick didn’t it! I hope you are all well and not too fed up with the rain storms we have been getting lately!

Half term is here and lots of visitors have arrived in Polzeath…and they’ve brought the sun with them! I went on a lovely walk the other day to Greenaway Beach, just along the coast path between Polzeath and Daymer Bay. Here’s a few pics from then, some fabulous textures can be seen on the rock pools!

With this website now up and running it is HAPPY DAYS as orders have been coming in! But what I have realised is that I DO have to promote it more and one of the ways is to regularly post a blog or update! So rather than doing a monthly round up of what I’ve been up to I shall be posting on a more regular basis….with new items made, or new events I’ve attended. A very popular sales item at the moment is the Bombay Sapphire Jewellery and I intend to expand on this by using other gin bottles too! So I’m on the hunt for great coloured glass!

Bombay Sapphire is a beautiful blue and really looks great with silver. It tastes quite nice too! So I drink the gin (with my husband!!) then smash up the bottle, fuse the glass in my kiln, then set in Recycled Silver. Here are the latest items added to my shop…more to come!

The ring is made to order and the blue glass used comes in all sorts of sizes as breaking up a glass bottle doesn’t lead to exact sizes! The oval shape can be placed vertically or horizontally on the ring shank 🙂 So for now, I’ve just received back a whole batch of rings from the Assay Office so I need to get on and set lots of beautiful faceted stones! Enjoy the half term break if you are off with your families x
