The sun with its hat on heralds the arrival of all the fantastic Summer shows and festivals that we hold here in the UK. I was lucky enough to be invited to the Sherborne Summer Festival last Saturday. There wasn't a cloud in the sky and a fantastic day was had by all shopping local crafts, watching community groups perform, listening to bands and imbibing in a little local cider. I was very good and didn't taste any cider until after I had packed up my stall otherwise you might have spotted me snoring away in a chair behind my table of lovely jewellery. It was really fantastic to get out and about and get chatting to people about the world and all manner of things, including jewellery of course. I even got a request to repair a 1920's tantaliser. I had to ask what it was and was very surprised at the answer!
With Summer in mind I have been adding some more new pieces to the website that are lightweight and easy to wear even on warm days. Whether you are off to Glastonbury, taking a well earned Summer holiday, or working your socks off there is bound to be something to suit your wardrobe in the New Designs collection.
I am hoping to book in some more events for Summer, so keep your eyes peeled on the events page for the latest dates. I am also very excited to be renting some space in a local craft emporium from the 1st July for 3 months. I will be announcing where on my Facebook page as soon as I have set up my display next Saturday.
Just a little catch up for now, but I am faithfully promising to myself that I will write on my blog much more often. So if there is something you really want to hear about please do let me know.
If you are doing something exciting in the Summer or have any pictures of you taking your Little Gems Jewels on holiday or to an event I really would love to hear from you on Facebook.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend!
