Coming up fast is the annual arts festival Art at Ancrum! I love a chance to spend some time back in the Borders and this event allows me a very good excuse to stay with my parents and catch up with lots of old pals. From the 5th to the 7th of May, the beautiful village of Ancrum will host over thirty artists and designers in twelve different venues.
I am using this year's event as a deadline to have made my first few pieces of jewellery from Fairtrade gold. I have purchased some stunning sapphires and spinel which are fully traceable to source, and these will be the focal points of the new designs. I'm really excited to show these new pieces for the first time!
