All done.

Studio all done and I’m really happy with how its turned out.

It looks great. It’s a great workspace and feels really cosy ( Think the carpet has made a big difference).

Here’s some final pictures.

The last picture is the view from my side.

Opening tomorrow 🤞

New studio taking shape at Cockington Court.

My new studio at Cockington Court is now almost finished.

I’ve gone for a black and oak look against white walls. It’s a perfect combination that really sets off my artwork, especially the coloured pewter.

Mirrors reflect work which is great for photos and they are needed for jewellery sales too.

Here’s my first happy customer with her new earrings .

I chose a higher counter which offers some protection with the Covid 19 dangers. It lights up nicely and having the jewellery display at this level is actually a lot better because customers don’t have to bend to see it.

A black and wooden screen hides all the messy stuff and allows for privacy.

Having full window length shelves gives lots of display space .

Lastly the dog likes it too.

Metal lace.

I like a challenge so I thought I’d have a go at doing something different.

I bought some fine wire and started knitting!

It’s quite hard to do and it makes your fingers sore but I persevered and I’m happy with my first attempt.

I used silver wire and one third of bracelet is copper wire.

I added a circular copper disc as a charm.

Artizan English Riviera Winter Open Exhibition at Fleet Walk, Torquay, Devon. 21st November 2019 – 18th January 2020.

Two new artworks are being exhibited at this exhibition.

As an ambassador artist for The English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark I try to raise awareness of the importance of protecting this important site, the only urban geopark in the world.

This piece shows small areas of disintegration.

You have to look closely to see.

This is the first in a series of works that will feature disintegration in varying stages.

It is framed in a matt grey frame, glazed with Artglass, a glass that allows only a very small amount of reflection. This allows the piece to be seen more clearly and also photographed well.
