I’ve been busy making new pieces ready for Art in Ditchling which runs for the first four weekends in May. It is always a fun time of year as the village buzzes with art lovers, all keen to explore the myriad of studios, workshops and galleries with their diverse range of art and craft skills on show. I have been developing a range of silver jewellery to sit alongside the gemstone and pearl collections and will have the first few pieces on display. This time of year always inspires me to be creative with shades of green gemstones. From vibrant amazonite and turquoise through to grassy shades of prasiolite, variscite and peridot, the colours are perfect for a touch of Spring zing!
