Some of the jewellery created by my students on my last jewellery making classes of 2016. There’s always such a great creative vibe at the classes with everyone choosing their own beads and later on in the class, choosing designs to work on. Everyone on the class makes something different, unique and personalised.

A selection of some of my photos from my recent travels around Cornwall in September.
A journey discovering Cornwall – it took me to some of its ancient and sacred sites – its stone circles, standing stones, wells, barrows and ancient settlements, as well as a bit of walking on the South-West coast path.

My visit to these special sacred places, has helped me recharge my batteries and allowed me some thinking time, as well as experiencing some amazing places and meeting some interesting people (I also managed to spend a few days in Glastonbury on the way down / back and revisit the White Spring and Glastonbury Tor). I’ll tell you more about some of these places in blog posts over the Winter months. Samantha, jewellery artist x
My recent holiday, travelling and sightseeing in Wessex was blessed with glorious weather. My time was spent visiting ancient sacred landscapes; stone circles, springs, cathedrals and watching inspiring sunsets.
Along the way, I met some quirky characters and amazing people and had a number of interesting conversations with; a stonemason that was working on Salisbury Cathedral and a Dutch healer at Salisbury Youth Hostel, a forge artist from Norfolk, sound healers at Glastonbury Tor and an abstract artist at Cheddar, amongst others…
