Back to the Land of Make and Do

I'm back into the swing of things this week - after my short relaxing break, I've now got to get back to the land of make and do. I have finally posted the last parcel off to another retail outlet, the last order from Aviemore Trade Show. This is the reason I put my feet up for a short while - it was a relief to get all the orders done.

Recently I have had enquiries from retail outlets (in other areas) that have seen my jewellery in the shops in Moray and have contacted me to ask if I can supply them. This is great news for me - more orders!! A new retail outlet order above - an order for my Labyrinth and Totem pendants. The shop owner said they were "like small sculptures and different from the usual dichroic pendants". What a very nice comment to hear - I must be doing something right!
I haven't made slider pendants for a while, they can either be a hit or miss and not all of them come out that well (especially working with textured dichroic glass). I have spent that last couple of firings filling the space with these pendants. I will put them on to leather thong and list them shortly on my website.

I've also got to make some decorative glass pieces for Speyfest - this is a local celtic music festival in Fochabers. It's a great festival and very well attended. I have booked two tables - one for my jewellery, the other for glass wall art and decorative pieces. The craft fair is on Saturday 1 August, so only have a week left to get my act together!! I love this piece I recently sold (at Portsoy Boat Festival) so will be making similar ones for Speyfest:I don't know what it is about the fish theme, but most of my glass goodies seem to focus on fish.
