“Well that was some month and I have been remiss in not keeping my blog up-to-date. At Christmas, our two daughters, Katie and Sarah, gave us the air tickets and accommodation for 10 days in Tokyo and Kyoto where Katie is living. Neither Peter or I had ever visited Japan so it can be best described as the most expensive cultural rollercoaster we have ever been on – but quite fantastic as even their pet dogs wear pearl designer jewellery ! No trip to Tokyo is complete without a visit to the famous Mikimoto Department Store, the man who first farmed freshwater pearls. Needless to say there were four floors of of the most exquisite handmade pearl jewellery with every conceivable pearl necklace in every colour – I am now convinced that my handmade pearl jewellery is excellent value for money!
Within twenty four hours we had unpacked and re packed and went to Olympia for the Spirit of Summer Fair and a huge thank you to all of you who made it all so worthwhile – as always it was great fun to see you all again and meet many new converts to my handmade designer jewellery
You will see we have decided to exhibit at the CLA Game Fair at Ragley Hall, Alcester Warwickshire between the 23rd and 25th July 2010 and will bring as much of the new summer collection of handmade pearl jewellery with me as I can – I hope you can join me in the Country Living marquee
