New on my stall this weekend . . .

It's been a busy day . . . one of those days where everything seems to happen at once. Probably the most exciting thing that happened was the arrival of a 'special delivery' padded envelope from Rachel in Norfolk – it contained more finished designs in our LANDSCAPE EAST jewellery collection.

Luckily it has been a bright day, perfect for taking photos, so I've spent some time photographing all the pieces so I can put them in the silver jewellery department of Magic Cochins Emporium on etsy. I haven't selected and sized all the images yet and I need to make a little display panel for them at this weekend's Arts Fair in Saffron Walden Town Hall; but here's a taster . . .

Rachel has described the etching technique she uses on her blog, you can see pictures of the leaf pendant and the hares being prepared for etching and actually in the acid bath.

  7. Hey Celia, I love the jewellery, particularly the long wire earrings and the names, Anglesey Abbey Falling Oak leaves. Gives them a more personal touch.
    Your flying Hare necklet made me gasp as I spied a hare in our paddock one morning this week. It was just metres from the house and as it bounded away, I took a mental photo to use one day!
    I'm sure the Arts Fair will be a huge success, wish I could be there, look forward to reading all about it.

  17. Hi Celia, thanks for your recent comment - interesting that other art/maker fairs are on the quiet side this year too. I wonder if the recession has hit?

    I love your silverware and wondered if you were considering doing any brooches? I'm not a great necklace wearer but would snap up one of those oak leaves if it would pin to my lapel.

    My parents loved the fieldfares by the way - a great success and it looked just lovely framed up. Thank you so much.

    Suffolk Puffs are also sometimes called Yorkshire Daisies and more often in blogland, Yo-yos, which is their American name.

    Lots of love Sue x
