Ending the Hiatus

Posted on January 14, 2018 at 12:07pm 2 Comments

I have no excuse, no apology. I've just been too busy with minor things to get round to updating the blog, so it is almost eight weeks since I last posted. Unforgivable.

Let's get back to it with a whistle-stop overview of the weeks and a promise of a return to regular postings...

But before I get to that title, what has been going on?

I find myself so busy these days - now that I'm Programme Leader for the HND Jewellery at the School - that I keep forgetting to update on what has been happening!

Hi there, been here a little while just not very active!  The new photos of the stainless codpiece look great - a bit western gunslinger.  That Earrings Galore exhibition looks interesting I may have to investigate.

We just had an Artist & Kids weekend,I had to teach an impromptu jewelry/enameling workshop. Remember Zoe from your class? She volunteered and brought in her pieces to show the kids. Lots of fun, however I'm covered in enamel!
