Wild Acre Private View

Last night I had a very jolly little soiree at home! It was Wild Acre's first ever Private View, launching my first ever proper jewellery collection (as opposed to making unrelated single pieces). It was small, intimate and informal but we are so lucky having the perfect room for this sort of thing, and a friend who makes wicked cupcakes to have with the prosecco or elderflower cordial we offered our guests.

There was a lot of set up and foofing about to get the layout right.








I couldn't resist having bunches of my freshly cut flowers here and there, and big mirrors for guests to see how pieces looked on them,









There was chatting, quaffing, catching up with friends, browsing and yes, buying - which was all very lovely!


I am really looking forward to the weekend now, a just a glimmer or two of sun would be nice pleeeeese! Have a great one, wherever you are. xxx

    1. Thanks! They were super simple ones with really easy to grow flowers, I think the pink one with the rose and carnations is granny chic!

    1. Ha! The ribbons were actually holding the mirror upright - it is ancient and wonky! Thanks for the really kind words. x

The glimpses of your work are tantalising, and you deserve a ton of attention and appreciation. All these pics have given me such a lift - I'm so excited for you!
