Sorry for not blogging for AGES!! the last few weeks just seem to have disappeared!! Anyway I've been very productive trying to make C*******s (still too early to use the word!) stock + refresh stockists-if you haven't received your top up yet it should be on it's way to you soon x London Dazzle package is long gone and the exhibition opens next week!! Then Manchester Dazzle work is nearly finished, just trying to finish off a necklace to complete the range, then it will be posted off early next week. A few days later I'll be dropping work off at the Edinburgh Contemporary Crafts for the 'Rare' exhibition which opens on the 15th of november. Next deadline will be some pieces for Papa Stour, who will have a stand at the Country Living Christmas Fair Glasgow at the SECC 22-25th November. The coburg house open studios event is also nearing...1st and 2nd of december will be when you can come and visit me in my studio so keep the dates free. The coburg gallery(not the studios) will also be open each weekend after until christmas so no excuses for missing out! So hopefully with all these exhibitions/restocking you can get your hands on some 'KAZ' jewellery wherever you are. However if you prefer to look from the comfort of your own home you can of course have a look on my etsy shop and see if anything takes your fancy-remember to sign up for my mailing list as I offer exclusive promotions to those who make the effort! I'll try and blog soonx x

Miss Barry and I are currently on the train to london. We have been invited down to the Deutsche Bank pyramid awards 20th anniversary. That was the award we won many moons ago in 2002!!. We were awarded £7000 (with the help of Sally moore) to help us set up our workshop. Anyway it is also the olympic parade in london today, and I'm really excited about seeing some of that too! So looking forward to a couple of fun filled days x x

Friday night was a brilliant night! Miss Barry and I would like to thank everyone who made it along to support us. During the run up to the exhibition we had started to question what/why were we doing this?? it was soooo much work to get everything organised and set up and it was only going to be a 3 hour show!!! anyway by the time 6 o'clock arrived and the first of the wine(many to follow!) was poured we were glad we had decided to mark our TEN YEARS ON!
A little peep at the work on show...
A special thanks to Billy for being our music man for the evening, everyone loved it and it was a great atmosphere!

So, after 10 whole years in our studio(apart from the brief kick out from norrie!) Donna and I are on the move!! don't worry we're not going far...infact, only upstairs! Coburg has extended yet again and we will be part of the new level-'coburg loft'. The new studio is brilliant and I think we both needed a wee change of scene, that's not to say the old studio won't be missed we had some very good times down the stair, and merryn is going to be very confused trying to find our new room. Here's a wee peep at the new studio, and the old one just as we had moved out our stuff. The unveiling of the new studio will be at the next august open studios-more info to follow, so hope to see you all there. Now after all the disruption I think it's time to get back to making some jewellery, and as miss Barry is on holiday next week I expect to be productive x x

Red, blue + white....well cream, close enough!

After a recent request for a royal blue bangle commission, I've been inspired to mix the colour in with some of my other pieces for a wee 'british' range. The rings are available now in my etsy shop. Im also going to be sending some to a new gallery opening soon... BOO gallery, castle ashby, Northamptonshire, is opening its doors in time for the royal jubilee celebrations. There will be a weekend of jubilee celebrations so thought these rings would be great for the show. Think 'lizzy' should bag one for herself before they all go! ha! ha! x

checking in...

Sorry I haven't blogged in ages..had a bit of a busy time with birthday celebrations, and taking a little break from work was great. Apart from that I've just been quietly slaving away in the studio on some new pieces for my show at JAM gallery, Eton later this month. Nearly finished all the pieces now, here's a wee peek at the main necklace for the show-been sticking with the bright yellow colour, it's great for this time of year! I haven't made a massive necklace in ages so it's been good trying things out! The show runs the whole of june, you can visit their website for further details That's it for now - back to the bench and then hopefully updating my etsy shop with some new items - keep a look out! x

school visit...

On monday I had a visit from Jill Brown and her higher art class students from Beath High School in Cowdenbeath, Fife. They are currently doing a recycled jewellery project as part of their course and Jill thought it would be a good idea for them to come and see what a designer/makers studio looked like, how things are made, and to see some of the equipment needed.
I hope they all enjoyed the morning, I know merryn (hannah's staffie) loved having you all here! I would have loved to have seen peoples studios when I was at school. I don't think I knew this world existed until I was at college. Anyway thanks for the visit and hope your project goes well! Jill-thanks for the chocolates, they went down a treat x

Been a while....

Sorry I haven't blogged for ages!!! I have been busying away in the studio but to be honest haven't been doing much online due to my very annoyingly slow laptop...time to splurge on a new one very soon I think!

Anyway been a busy little week so far... new stock out to 'concrete wardrobe', edinburgh, 'studio 24' in west kilbride, and the 'strathearn gallery' in Creiff. Trying to finish off a couple of pieces so I can post off work to 'oriel mostyn gallery' in Llandudno, hopefully get it all out tomorrow!!

Well I'll keep it short and sweet - off to make some more jewellery x
