Hello 2015, nice to meet you :)

I can safely say that I am welcoming in New Year 2015 with open arms, 2014 was somewhat testing, the bit in the middle where I permanently lost the function of my right ear and the lack of a primary school place for my lil lady were trying times.

I have to say a massive thank you to my family for keeping me sane and also to the Brighton creative crew, DesignosaurYEAH, ilikecats, HelloDodo, Mooshpie, Kirstin Stride and my new collaborative buddy of 2014 Sarah Edmonds for being completely amazing and amusing. And of course to everybody that supported my work and bought jewellery from me, keeping Rock Cakes real and thriving.

My husband rolls his eyes at the mention of new years resolutions, me however, I’m a massive sucker for them, not the deprive yourself of your favourite food or forcing yourself to run at 6am in the rain type, more of the uplifting positive new beginning. My resolutions are always creative, my Gocco printer was a new year treat a few years back, this year I have made a creative plan to indulge myself in books, galleries and photography, consume some creative input and see what the output is. I may have ordered a few new jewelley related treats, books and some bits and bobs from Cass Art, just for a little creative boost…

So Happy New Year y’all, go make some uplifting resolutions that you’ll want to stick to…

Rock Cakes on the 2014 Festive Road

It did enter my head to slow down a little more than on previous years in the run up to Christmas, it can be super full on! Then I thought no, that’s boring, folks need their Rock Cakes bling to make their celebrations complete. The dates below are your chance to see and try on the jewellery that I make, meet me, ask questions and really get a feel for my work. And so this is where you will find me playing shop…

Sunday 16th November
Brighton Etsy Christmas Market
The Open Market. Marshalls Row, London Road, Brighton. BN1 4JU
The vibrant BtnEtsy Team sellers will be taking over the market for one day only, it’s going to be a lively one. There will be over 40 local designer makers peddling their wares and giggling a lot no doubt.

Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd November 11am – 6pm
Renegade Craft Fair.
Truman Brewery, 91 Brick Lane, London. E1 6QL
This is the craft fait that all designer makers dream of, the Renegade masters are a picky bunch so expect the cream of the uk’s craft all under one massive roof. I hyper ventilated when I got the nod, so if you are in London you just gotta swing by and say hi…

Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th November
Brighton Craftaganza 
Fabrica. Duke St, Brighton, BN1 1AG
Craftaganza is the Brighton craft fair that is full of heart and soul. The makers are again well vetted so expect variety and quality in the locally designed and produced products. The air will be filled with Christmas music, the smell of mulled wine and the sound of happy crafters. There is a café with mince pies and sausage rolls and a warm atmosphere in which to find special gifts – even if every other one is for yourself…

Saturday 6th December
Makers Boutique
Unitarian Church. New Road, Brighton. BN1 1UF
This is when things get serious, you’ve eaten six of your festive shaped advent chocs and you’ve yet to make a dent in that pressie list. Makers Boutique offer a wide range of products to suit all tastes. You could probably tick off everybody left on that list and get good value for your coins. You’d still have plenty of time to cross the road to the Wagon and Horses for a cheeky mulled cider – job done!

Saturday 13th December
Crafty Fox Peckham
Bussey Building, 133 Rye Lane, London. SE15 4ST
Yay back to London! Possibly the best named craft fair, Crafty Fox is renowned for having quality makers and is ever popular, again super happy to have been accepted. By this time I expect to be slightly crazy, along with my Sarah Squared, pie obsessed, partner in crime Sarah Edmonds. Expect interesting products, a beautiful venue and makers who are a little worn out but still excitedly smiling…

I hope that you can make it along to at least one of the fairs, they really do put you in the Christmas spirit and you actually meet the people who made what you buy. It adds story and meaning to an object, you are sure to find special and original gifts.

I have been working on a collaboration entitled Sarah Squared, with the talented illustrator that is Sarah Edmonds, our work will be launching in November. It will be available, along with Sarah E’s personal work, at all of the above fairs for more info check out our blog.
