Alongside many pieces of jewellery that are unique, made with reused or recycled beads, and finished with silver, others are made with silver and semi-precious stone and high quality un-branded crystal, complementing the jewellery that has been "Re-designed, Re-defined and is now Ready to love again".
Goosewing Gallery is open 6 days/week, 9.30am - 4.00pm and it is recommended that you get in touch if wishing to visit, so the Gallery is open when you call in.
I am also thrilled to say that my silver jewellery is also on sale at 'The Old School House Gallery' in upper Swaledale and other pieces made with re-used and recycled beads are now on sale at The Station Shop, Richmond.
Soon after discovering a love of designing jewellery, my work was accepted by Bristol’s prestigious Ginger Gallery. This, and the support of its wonderful manager, Sylvia, made it possible to approach others and over the next few years sold in galleries from Brighton to Newlyn, Eton to Hay-on-Wye. I still have pieces in Bristol’s award-winning Sky Blue Framing.
After a successful 'season' at Richmond Station's recent 'Spot on the Wall' exibition, I am also hoping to expand and sell my jewellery elsewhere across the region - watch this space for more information!
‘Goosewinging’ is the term for sailing downwind and is the only time one sail can cross one side of the boat while the second sail crosses the other. It is both precarious and exhilarating; the first time I did so was in Bristol Harbour outside the same Ginger Gallery that was to later take my work and feels a good metaphor for this new adventure!
Having settled in North Yorkshire several years ago, I am very excited to be resuming this part of life as have missed it more than I realised.
