WOW It's been months since I blogged...

So sorry for neglecting my blog!

I have been soooo busy the last few months that I've hardly had time to breathe...

My Exciting News

At the end of January I was approached with an amazing opportunity. Leigh Armstrong, a Senior PMC Instructor, of Magick Minx Productions asked me if I would be interested in working alongside her when her new studio opened. Of course I said YES, YES, YES...How could I turn down such a fantastic offer? The new studio is due to open its doors in May!! I'm soooo excited, it's going to be amazing.

Magick Minx HQ is actually part of Creative Hinckley, a new initiative for my local town centre. A derelict, listed factory building has been totally revamped into a fantastic development. Part of this development has been turned into studio space for the use of local artists and craftspeople. This is where myself and Leigh will be based. The rest of the development will provide exhibition and gallery space, performance and rehearsal space, retail and a café bar area, conference and meeting space and general office units for start-up and growing enterprises.

I have already started work on composing some workshops for Enchanted @ Magick Minx, I will tell you more about this when I have definite dates and details. I will also be completing the PMC Certification anytime soon. I'm gonna be busy, busy, busy...but...I promise to try and keep my blog up to date from now on.

More Exciting News

This year saw me become a regular designer for British jewellery making magazine, Making Jewellery. So far this year I've had three of my designs published and have submitted many more for future issues. I will give you regular updates on my magazine journey here.
I can't tell you how uplifting it is to actually see your work in print alongside your name and photo...I was quite dumbfounded when my first piece was published and I had people saying to me that they loved my piece in Making Jewellery this month. Wow, can this really be happening to me!!??
Well I think that's about it for tonight...I still need to tell you about the 2010 Flame Off which I went to last weekend, but I'll save that for next time.
