It’s been a few weeks since I’ve been back here at the blog. Busy busy busy. Unfortunately not so much with jewellery. The kids were on school holidays but even they were neglected while I madly fixed up and painted (for the 3rd time in 3 years) a rental house we own in which we’ve had 2 sets of bad tenants. I’ve had enough of these distractions so we’ve decided to sell. Simplify things. Focus.
I did however manage to schedule in a couple of days in Sydney where I visited Metalab/COTA and showed them my work. They were very enthusiastic and some of my rings, silver cuffs and a pod necklace will be available at their shop COTA in the Strand Arcade from this week! Very exciting!
I also caught up with two of my closest friends whom I only get to see a few times a year – lots of good conversation, nice food – although I have to say the weather in Sydney was terrible compared to the stunning autumn days we’ve been having in Melbourne lately! It was a good break and I feel revived and ready for a few more frantic weeks of getting the house finished, working on some pieces for Pieces of Eight and maybe even getting some pieces into my web shop (yes, I’ve not managed to stock that as well as I’d hoped to yet).
