New Designers = a huge trade show for jewellery graduates to display their final year work, and where people from the industry visit and interact with said graduates.
A rather wonderful experience. Was more than lovely talking to everyone who passed through about my work, you were all so nice :) And I now know how to hand up a display with foam in a really short period of time with limited tools! and how to dress professionally, and how speak to people without wanting to run away! and am more than a little jealous of all the stunning work at the show! so much inspiration in one place.
And a trip to London, so all in all pretty awesome!
My display all set up and pretty… even with concretesque blocks!
Made myself a little Faery Wings inspired necklace to show off my work.
Sexy exhibitor pass!
A few photos from the opening night.
Oh and let’s not forget, thanks you wonderful weirdoes for popping along! and thanks v.much for a lovely dinner :)

New Designers was ace!
I even had enough time to hang around London a little bit…
The British Museum
Was so hot in there that I didn’t spend too much time inside, but the ceiling was epic so I did take a few wee snaps:
Natural History Museum
Beautiful museum, epically busy, but free and wonderful! The gemstones hall being my favourite…. so much sparkly!!!
