The countdown to the Handmade Fair begins and I am busy sorting out my display and props so that I can make a creditable attempt to reproduce a boutique look in my tiny space of 1.5 x 2 metres. I have been looking at ideas and picking the best jewellery to make the highest impact.
I have had to resist the impulse to put everything out on the table and create a jumble sale effect, or wear everything I've got like the sunglasses salesman in the photograph which I took at a tourist spot in Mysore, India.
I, on the other hand need to strive for a degree of sophistication, and the mantra 'less is more' plays on in my mind over and over.
I shall speak to you next weekend, same time, same place - until then, have a fabulous week, see you soon
