All Things Bright & Beautiful

Today I set up a display of metalwork at the Morvah Schoolhouse Gallery for the Christmas exhibition 'All Things Bright & Beautiful'. Not all of the exhibits were in place while I was there but what I did see looked very enticing.

The gallery is open Thursday to Sundays 11am - 3.30pm There is a little cafe too so you could always stay for lunch...



This exhibition continues until Saturday 7th January 2017

Seaweed Jewellery Collection

Recently I've been working on some new designs....something that has taken a while after the busy summer season here in St Ives.  My seaweed metalwork has been very popular so the jewellery has been a natural progression from that work....
At the moment the earrings & necklaces are in sterling silver with a bright or oxidised finish but I want to look into gold plating some of the pieces to add further colour contrasts as when I was making the 'masters' they looked good in copper & brass colours...

Hopefully this new work will get a good response...I shall be showing it for the first time this weekend at Flambards 
Sat 3rd & Sun 4th December 10am - 4pm
