…which means it’s market day again this weekend. And, to celebrate summer and folks being on their hols and the rest of it, they’re only going to set up a beach…
in Frome! There will be donkey rides and everything. With a view to this – and general holiday-ness – I decided to do a couple of beach-y makes.

I’m not wholly sure about these skinny stackers – I don’t know whether to offer them individually. If I do that, I may need to make more. Oh, I don’t know!
What else happens at this time of year?

Weddings, of course. I don’t have any in my diary, but some of my friends seem to have one practically every weekend. I’ve titled this one ‘Devoted’; as a result, I have an Olivia Newton-John earworm on the go. (Apologies for the grey photo: I forgot to photo this one with the others, and by the time I remembered the sun was going down). Here’s another new bracelet.

And a new pair of earrings. Both the labradorites were glow-y when I put these together – now one doesn’t want to play.

And that, would you believe it, is the full extent of my new makes this month. I know! It’s because of all the time I’ve given over to working on the ceramics. I’m getting there with that now. I’m at the stage where I’m making multiples of designs that I think have worked. So I hope – and I stress hope, because who knows what might go wrong! – that I’ll have some to show you and share in the next few weeks. (Fingers crossed!) Fortunately, I do have some other kinda new items for the stall. I had a number of pieces published in the current issue of 101 BNE. They all arrived home from their transatlantic trip the other week so I can now offer them for sale. All of the following pieces were in the magazine.

If there’s anything in this post that catches your eye, do let me know. And, as ever, if you’re in or around Frome this Sunday (remember, there will be donkeys!) do stop and say hello. I’ll be set up outside Fat Face, in the town centre, from 10am till 3pm.
