I've got a few lovely shows highlighting great British design, coming up in the next few months, covering a nice mixture of local contemporary Craft fairs and gallery shows.
The first one coming up is this Saturday 8th November in Worthing. Called Bartie's Boutique, I've never visited one of these before but its been going for several years and the organisers seem to invite a great mixture of crafts all of a high quality. Worth a visit I reckon if you're in that neck of the woods!
I'm also doing another similar show in my own back yard of Lewes on 6th December at the Town Hall. As a previous visitor to this show I'm really excited to be joining an eclectic and talented mix of well known local artists and designers selling their wares.
I'm exhibiting a collection of my Hammered and Twist rings at the Leeds City Gallery at the start of 2015 in their annual 'Rings' show. I feel privileged to be shown alongside a selection of some of the country most prestigious jewellers. Follow the link to see more!
I hope to see some of you at one of the shows!
Unique Christmas Gift Ideas Week on City Girl At Heart. November 11 2013
My lovely friend, and blogger about interesting and gorgeous things, 'City Girl At Heart' (http://www.citygirlatheart.com) has invited fellow bloggers and independant online stores to contribute their gift ideas for Christmas every day this week. She has a particular interest in the handmade and creative so expect to see some really unique things....
As far as my own jewellery is concerned I have several suggestions for Christmas presents -
For her - you can't go wrong with something from my Leela collection (http://www.andreaeserin.co.uk/collections/leela) - feminine and Indian inspired there is a range of earrings, necklaces and bracelets in this collection to suit most tastes!
For him - how about one of my collection of cufflinks? I particularly love the Target cufflinks (http://www.andreaeserin.co.uk/products/target-cufflinks)
Bespoke - Or how about having something made for that special person in your life? Check out my Bespoke collection (http://www.andreaeserin.co.uk/collections/bespoke-collection) for ideas, like this delicate 18ct yellow gold and yellow sapphire ring below...
