Handmade sterling silver jewellery

What a busy few months we have had at ARC Jewellery!  

Handmade sterling silver jewellery has been flying off the virtual shelves in my online shops.  I've been so busy at the bench keeping up with orders and preparing for events that I haven't had the time to devote to my blog.  I thought it was about time I rectified that.

So what's been happening...

I have acquired two new stockists this year, The Giggly Goat Gallery in Norwich and Mog and Crusoe Gallery in Wadebridge, Cornwall.  A selection of my work including bangles, pendants and earrings is on display at each.  Both are lovely galleries full of beautiful pieces of artwork and handmade creations.

This year's events kicked off with Art Unequalled in Bury St Edmunds in May, followed by The Etheldreda Fair in Ely and then the Chippenham Hall Summer Fete.  We were lucky to have glorious weather and plenty of lovely customers and visitors to each event.

My next events will be Art Unequalled in Ely on 18/19 October, Ely Cathedral Christmas Fair 13-15 November and Swavesey Christmas Fair on 22nd November.  Details of these events can be found on my website or on my Facebook page

I am still busy restocking my virtual shelves on both my Folksy and Etsy shops.  There you will find a selection of unique handmade sterling silver earrings, both stud and dangle earrings, bangles, bracelets, necklaces and pendants, silver rings made to order and a selection of enamelled pieces of jewellery that I have been working on recently.

Here is a snapshot of some of the items available in my Etsy shop.  I am waiting for some hallmarked pieces to be returned from the London Assay office so there will be more pieces added just as soon as they arrive.

Don't forget you can keep up to date with events, new items of jewellery and promotions by following me on Twitter @arcjewellery or on Facebook

Art & Craft

Hello and a very happy new year!

I thought this would be a good time for me to share the work of some of the many artists and crafters that I have discovered over the past year.  All of whom I have purchased work from, either as gifts for others or a little treat for myself.  

One of the great things about selling at art & craft fairs is that I usually (thanks to my husband who looks after my stall) get the chance to do a bit of shopping for myself and I have met some wonderful people and started lovely collections of their work.  

As I have shops on Folksy and Etsy I look at them on a daily basis and am always finding new things that would be ideal as gifts.  The great thing about those sites is that I can have items delivered direct to friends and family around the globe and quite often with a little message included on my behalf.

So here is just a small selection of some of my favourite purchases from the past 12 months...

This is just a small selection, the list goes on and on.  Please also take a look at these websites...

Best wishes for 2014!
