My day in cups of tea article

The Simple Things Magazine December 2012 – I’m in it!

I am really happy that my interview for the ‘My day in cups of tea’ feature is in this months ‘The Simple Things’ Magazine. You can see me as the first contributor on page 7 and the article on page 95. Click on the images above to read.

This is such a lovely inspirational magazine full of great photography, interesting lifestyle articles and amazing recipes, take a look at their website

Here are some of the images which didn’t make it in the magazine:


Bath illuminations

We were lucky enough to see the Bath illuminations last night; photos are from my phone so don’t do them justice… you can just make out the face on the bridge in the middle photo.

Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I am really looking forward to to 2012. I have just had some exciting news from the Arts Council, they are going to support a Japanese exhibition I am planning for April 2012, which is fantastic….. I will reveal more in the new year.


As I mentioned in a previous post, I have been lucky enough to write a chapter for this amazing Design & Make Paper Jewellery book by Sarah Kelly ( which has finally been published and is in stores now. My chapter uses book binding as the basis for attaching papers together and hopes to inspire jewellers to use non traditional techniques and materials in their creations.

“Design and Make Paper Jewellery offers a series of masterclasses by experts who work with paper, and features examples of work from a breathtaking array of international makers. Techniques covered include encasing, crocheting, moulding, sculpting, cutting and binding, with paper types ranging from origami papers, to found papers, to paper yarn. Whether you want to make a personal piece to preserve a paper treasure, or create high fashion jewellery for exhibition on the catwalk, this book offers inspiration, tips and techniques for everyone interested in working with this sensitive, ephemeral material”.


Tis that time again and we have been getting ready for our annual Christmas Arts Supermarket at the studio.
