This is my 4th Exhibition at Stamford Arts Centre with ESC Artists. Of course I am one of the founder members of this artist led group so I do exhibit at all the events we organise.
I am exhibiting a selection of air-chased, fold formed and embossed pieces of jewellery, some small sculptures crafted using various coppersmithing techniques. It would be lovely to see you at the exhibition. Do come and have a look!

Here are some pictures from past ESC Artists exhibitions. We set up a mixed exhibition with a range of work on display.
I had a nice time at Stamford Apple Day event on 7 October and met lots of lovely people.
So what has metalsmithing got to do with Apples? Not a lot really, but I do like to support the Stamford Community Orchard Group by attending their annual Stamford Apple Day event at the Arts Centre.
And if you still want a link, however tenuous… I had a mini orchard on display with some of my copper leaves, Mr A’s Bare Iron Trees and other nature related items like copper flowers, copper mushrooms etc.
ESC Artists had a wonderful time at the Stamford Georgian Festival this year.
Our stall at the Stamford Georgian Festival Street market looked amazing and we got fantastic comments about the quality of work on display. Everything on the stall was crafted by the participating artists at ESC Autumn exhibition and market to be held at Stamford Arts Centre from 26 October – 5 November 2017.

2017 also marks the 50th anniversary of Stamford’s award as the UK’s first conservation town so it was a double celebration of our lovely Georgian town. I really do love where I live 🙂
I have added a new range of keyrings and bag charms to my online shop and at my display shelf at Art in the Heart in Peterborough. The price range is from £7.50 – £12.00 depending on the size.
These have all been created using my new Rolling Mill and I have used a variety of card making patterns and printed them on copper tags. I think they are fun and great gifts. As these keyrings and bag charms are small and lightweight they would be great for posting out to friends and families who live far away.
I am working on more of these keyrings and charms for the upcoming shows and events leading up to Christmas.
Yes… it is September and I mentioned the C word! Sorry! But Christmas is important for small businesses like mine. We all like receiving and giving gifts and this is that time of the year when there is a lot more gift buying happening.
