Whats been happening?
Fame at last!
A piece of our work was featured in the Irish Daily Mail this week in the 'Life and Soul' section. An article by Kim Willoughby showing a selection of handcrafted Irish things. Our new Ivy Leaf was featured and we are thrilled!
Ken and me have been working like trojans in the last two weeks. Our first eight week course of Jewellery making workshops started this week down at the Kite Studios. We were down there on sunday fitting a new jewellery bench, extra bench pegs and putting in lots and lots of lovely shiney new saws and files (although any one who makes jewellery will understand that the older the tools the better!)
The first class went great! A great bunch, really keen and everyone, including myself seemed to be enjoying it. We'll be taking lots of pictures of the workshops in progress and with the budding jewellers permission we'll have pictures of lots of their beautiful pieces!
