Scotland's Exclusive Wedding Event

Pretty tired after two full days at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. However, I met some really nice people - both brides to be and exhibitors! The show was really well organised and I would consider exhibiting again. I enjoyed meeting all the very excited wedding parties and hearing about their plans for the Big Day. I also had a chance to chat with a lot of brides and explain how I might design and create a unique hair accessory for their Wedding Day. I feel that many had not thought of this idea before and were indeed surprised that this service was available.

I finally completed my design for Michaela of Love's Philosophy Bridal. This is a bridal boutique which offers a unique service - individual appointments in the evening and weekends for the busy bride. I have designed the 'Chloe' vintage inspired headpiece which is available to order through 'Love's Philosophy Bridal. Why not check out the website for a truly individual wedding gown

Goodnight. . .

Jewellery Making Open Evening by Sheila Kerr

After a hectic day I made my way to the Prestwick Community Centre to set up the tables for the Open Evening. I was delighted that people came along to find out what is on offer. I have put details of all courses as well as Saturday Workshops for the month of September.

Why not take a look and see if anything appeals?

What a perfect afternoon I had. It was at last nice enough to sit in my garden and do some work outdoors. I have all my jewellery making paraphenalia set up on a beading tray on a small table (to ensure I don't lose anything! I had to repair a fabulous necklace made of beautiful jade and a stunning handmade silver flower. I then strung some peachy freshwater pearls for a client who requested an 18 inch string which is her preferred length. This person has purchased pearls from me before - she is a bit of a pearl addict just like myself. The sun was shining, there was a slight breeze and I could hear the seagulls in the distance. At last I feel as if it is summer.

However, this was quite fleeting as later on the dark clouds came over and I was forced to complete my work indoors. As I look out it is quite sunny again. A perfect evening for a walk along the beach and why not?
