What's on...

Another year is whipping by! 

I was off in America at the end of January for The New York Gift Fair, a trade show which went really well and i have x10 new out lets in the States which including...
LoriMcleans store in Manhatten, which i new fromhaving spent some time wondering & admiring her wears  years ago when we were on our honeymoon in America.
Teilo was busy in a record shop, surprise, surprise so i entertained myself in Lori's shop around the corner.  It's great to be selling with her & we hope to do some work together in the near future so what this space!

The super cool & most stylish of chaps at PatchNY are stocking some of my pins & prints.

Over in Austin, Texas at Mercury Design Studio they are keen on my horse bow brooches & embroidered Matches & Bourbon biscuits.

I'll be off to New York again in August to add to the list!

Busy in my counting house, i've just finished this commission for The Rusty Pig  in Ottery St. Mary, Devon. An establishment that work to celebrates the the humble pig for all its tasty qualities. They specializes in Charcuterie & it's the place to have a pork filled breakfast,  the best i ever have. You can now get your 10 'oinks' token from them, to treat anyone to one of these delicious meals or to purchase some of their wears to take home. The home made cooking Chorizo is a winner! (Can you tell, i am a fan.)

Here's another commission i have  just finished, turning a pair of gold cufflinks into a bracelet that a customer's father had passed on to her...

I added a sliver link that echoed the gold, stamping her initials on. i think she was pleased with it...
"Thank you so much for the amazing bracelet, it is just gorgeous and I love the way you have made that beautiful silver lozenge to match the others, so beautiful! I have it on now and I suspect I won’t be taking it off much." 

I am just waiting to get back lots of new photos of my coin jewellery so will get some in a post soon. As you can see from my pics above it's always best to use a professional!

I'll be off to Sussex later this month for a brand new show at West Dean, a specialist College for Arts & Crafts. The lovely folk who put Made London & Brighton on have helped put it together so it will have lots of talented makers. I am sharing a stand with my brother Ken Eardley so double Eardley action. There will be no need to go any further than our stand really!!! 
Although -  your ticket will include entrance to West Deans awards winning gardens which will be well worth a look, especially at this time of year.
2for1 & early bird tickets are available to buy until the 12th of June.
