Find me on Adur Art Trail this weekend

Ok so I haven’t written a blog post for a while, busy busy, but I had to let you know about my latest exhibition at Krysia and Rick’s house on the Adur art Collective Art Trail in Shoreham-by-Sea, west sussex.

I was excited to be invited by artist Krysia Drury to exhibit my handmade silver jewellery at her artists open house in Shoreham this month. Exhibiting at this venue are Krysia Drury, Rick Irvine, Lizzie Lee, Phil Duncan, Elizabeth Anne Norris, Deryn Bell, Chris MacDonald and Karen Ongley-Snook.

The Adur art Collective organise 32 venues showing local art in houses, a caravan, a houseboat and a beach hut! As well as the free exhibits at the Artists open houses the other art Collective organizers many workshops talks and poetry readings at many of the venues to allow visitors to get involved in art and craft activities.

You can find out full details of all the Adur Art Collective events on their website www.adurartcollective.co.uk

Here are selection photos from last weekend at Krysia and Rick’s house. I hope they inspire you to visit either this weekend or next. Krysia’s and Rick’s house is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays until the 19th of June. If you pick up a brochure you can find us at Venue 26, 178 Old Shoreham Road BN43 5TE. I Hope you can visit and if you do I look forward to meeting you there.

Tuesday Q’sDay

Yes Q’sDay is a new feature on my blog. I’m hoping Tuesday Q’sDay will be a regular post (at least every other week) where I will ask a simple question for you to answer. I am really interested to hear what you have to say so please leave a long or short answer below as a comment.

 Today’s Tuesday Q’sDay:

Think about the last piece of jewellery you bought for yourself. What was it and where did you wear it for the first time?

Blue Sparkle earrings

My answer would be these iridescent blue sparkle resin earrings that I bought from a local Brighton jeweller. I wore them at my Artists Open House. The picture doesn’t show how vivid they are in real life. I really love them!

Don’t forget to answer my question below and many thanks for joining in the fun.
