Toby's earings, stand, and general news.

Toby has been busy making earings, all £6.50 a pair. He has designed and linked them up himself using reclaimed chains, new glass and handmade polymer clay beads, buttons (not vintage), freshwater pearls, and various bits and bobs he finds. We used an old ribbon spool to make a display stand, Laurence drilled holes in the top to hang the earings from.
Yesterday, the last free day before school again, we went to Spirals, a Fairtrade shop in Hebden Bridge, to deliver 22 bracelets, and 8 pairs of earings displayed on this stand.

I phoned the gallery in Bradford which we posted about before, at South Square, http://www.uniquearts.co.uk/ The lady there said they had sold one piece already for £10, and were planning to take our jewellery to craft fairs and events before Christmas as well as displaying them in the shop.

Today I am writing out labels for the 'Attrills' range, Toby's sterling silver pieces, also the handmade felt, hemp, and vintage elements. You have not seen these yet, the "grand opening" at Makepiece is on Thursday, showing their new range of garments along with 3 designer jewellers (one being Attrills). I will upload them to the new blog soon.
