Back to work
After a busy couple of weeks I took Monday off and went to the beach. It was lovely wandering around Whitby in the sunshine and I picked up a bit of softly rounded beach glass, a small shell and a pebble with a stripe down the centre as well as buying some exotic seashells in one of the tourist shops. Today I have been back at the torch making some brightly coloured large holed beads in preparation for Open Studios later in the month. North Yorkshire Open Studios is a fantastic event and takes place over June 21st, 22nd and 26th, 27th, 28th. 102 artists and makers will be opening their studios to the public and showing work as varied as painting, print making, sculpture, textiles, ceramics and of course jewellery. I really look forward to taking part but it does mean I don't get to visit any of these inspiring artists myself. There is a beautiful brochure available by request from the website (see above link).
