Huuuggee hello

For such a long time now I have wanted to blog about a very special friend and talented jeweller, Kriket Broadhurst.
She lives just around the corner from me here in Beaumaris and she landed here not long after I opened the gallery.
She makes and fires her own ceramic beads which I find fascinating and love going into her studio to see and play with her latest firings and wonder what beautiful creations she will turn them into. Her work has always been incredibly popular in our gallery as it suits young and old. I am a big fan of her new all silver collections, they look great on, dressed up or down, and are very affordable. So take a closer look here and here.
She also has a very lovely blog with some interesting tips for jewellers, and an etsy shop. The pieces below are all on our website.

I am just about hanging in there..... counting down the days, watching favorite films, baking, going to Christmas parties, wrapping presents, waddling down the road for coffee and cake with friends, loving The Apprentice, organising rotas for January, trying to write a staff/work manual for new staff, trying to tear myself away from the gallery and let hubby take control, spending way too much money online because of boredom, packing bags, still loving every kick.....but not every wriggle down as head is engaging, realising I can sleep better without a million cushions surrounding me making me sweat, making wreaths for the front door, struggling to decide on a name, only 6 sleeps to go!

Byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, and just in case I don't make it back before, wishing all you gorgeous lovely readers a very merry Christmas xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Beautiful jewellery - I must have a look at your website and see what's new! I'm so glad you're feeling so well and getting everything sorted out before the Big Day arrives. Sending you our very best and warmest wishes.

Merry Christmas to you too Janet. I have enjoyed the Apprentice this time round - riveting! You must be very excited but I know what it is like to uncomfortable at this time! Sending you all my best wishes too.

What an exciting time for you! My daughter, Evie, was due on Christmas Eve but actually came 3 days early - and that was 13 years ago! But your blog has brought back happy memories. Wishing you every blessing.
