The start of a New Year is a point of reflection!
Two resolutions for the start of this year - a better work life balance and to start a graded exercise programme.
Last year saw me write several articles for Bead & Jewellery Magazine - over the year these will be gradually added to my Etsy shop. The school holidays saw me add a few new designs.
As a welcome to the new year JAN2017 code will give a 20% discount in my Etsy shop until the end of the month!
Post Bead Retreat saw the reveal of Battle of the BeadSmith 2016 design - Iridescence of a Peacock.
A trip to London with the senior maths team gave the opportunity to attend an exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum - ‘Bejewelled Treasures - The Al Thani Collection’. The above design was inspired by a stunning hair clip. The design made it to round 2 and more images can be found here!
I have similar plans for this year - the maths team have again made it through to the final in London. I will be accompanying them on the trip early February - will be checking out the The Winton Gallery but have yet to work out what to see at the Victoria & Albert.......
