Train Challenge for Ali

Well, it is that time of the week again.. and I am happily packing my bag ready to head off to JM towers for the late show and of course my intermediate wirework workshop on Saturday.

Now, some people may know, some may not, but on my last late show with Ali Defoy two weeks ago, I promised both Ali and the viewer's that if my lovely mother happened to be watching (I knew she was!) and she had managed to get me the stunning coated tiger eye brioilettes that had been aired, (they were lush!!) that I would try to make something with them and show them on the next show (the show I was heading to!

Time to Train Challenge!

So, as I am just starting out with the blogging, don't panic, this will be the last blog for today ;)  but some of you would have already have seen, if you do follow me on my facebook pages, but for those of you that haven't or don't, here is how it goes

so, Monday 19th May, I left my house at 7.50 to head to the train station, I arrived with just enough time to grab myself a large black coffee and a quick bacon bap (gotta love the pumpkin shops!) and ran onto the 8.30 train to head to Birmingham new street.

A sunny day in Dulverton

Well, in the words of a famous song, let's start at the very beginning (is it in your head now? it's in mine!)

As much as I love Jewellerymaker, it is not the only thing I do, I do commission work, magazine work and of course, just because I can work!  so, after working hard all last week to prepare my project's for Monday's Designer Inspiration show, I was able to enjoy the sun and a lovely bit of quality family time with my mum, the two dogs, hubby and the kids! bliss!!

so, what is the point of this blog I hear you say, yeah yeah you went on holiday.

So i finally bit the bullet....

So, after lots of umming and ahhhing i have decided to finally do it and write a blog!!! i love using social media and often update everyone via my facebook pagesJM Guest Designer Laura Binding andYou Nique You Jewellery but i figured it was time to be able to go into detail and keep people up to date with what i am getting up to and of course, for those of you who do follow me, my train challenges!!! 

so, if you have just stumbled upon me and have no idea what i am talking about, let me explain, as a guest designer for Jewellerymaker, i travel to and from the studio via train and have approximately 1hr 40 before i change over to the local train to get to Redditch.
