A few weeks ago I teamed up with two of my very close friends Actress (and Model for the day) Catriona McNicoll - you might have seen her recently on the BBC's mystery drama 'Ordeal by Innocence' - and fantastic photographer, Rhona Henderson to create some 'in action' shots of my jewellery being worn, lived in and adored. It was great to work so closely with people who I've known for such a long time and I think we got some great shots from it!

It was amazing being invited to London to visit the historic Goldsmiths' Hall for the annual GCDC awards this February. The ceremony itself was full of applause and excitement and preceded the official GCDCA Exhibition opening which featured all the beautiful work from the winners and a few glasses of bubbles. I felt overwhelmed and delighted to be featured in such a talented exhibition in such a prestigious venue, overall it was a great night had by all!

I have just recently found out that I will be exhibiting at the New Designers exhibition within their established One Year On show. The exhibition is located in the Business Design Centre, Islington and will be open from the 27th to the 30th of June 2018. I cant wait to get started designing and creating a new selection of pieces for the show and already have a few ideas in mind! At the show I will also be showcasing my more recently developed jewellery collection and can't wait to hear what you all think. Look forward to seeing you there!
