I'm a jeweller without a studio, for this reason I've been focusing on materials that don't require a lot of equipment lately. I have been working with resin for a few years now, a material which I love for the way it accepts colour and embedded objects and pictures. I'm also very interested in acrylic plastic and I plan to work more with that in the near future as well. My designs are bold and colourful.

Makers' Market

This past Saturday, along with my sister Jill, I registered a table at Christ's Church Cathedral in Hamilton to sell some of my jewellery and Jill's marbled clutch purses. Makers' Market is an "Outdoor Art & Organic Food Market" which showcases artists from this area. There was some locally grown, organic fruits and veggies available and a few vendors selling vintage items. Unfortunately I wasn't able to bring as much jewellery as I would have liked to, but I did manage to sell a couple of my smaller resin pins. This was a really good opportunity to show off my work to a new audience. I was given some advice about what people would like to see from me in the future, and of course the whole experience of running a table at a craft show in invaluable. I can't wait until the next one! It will be on September 15th. Christ's Church Cathedral is on 252 James St. N. right next to the armory. It's a huge courtyard... you can't miss it!
