Hope you are all coping as well as can be expected in these trying times.
The last 18 months, since the first lockdown in Australia from 23rd March 2020, has been a bit of a disaster for small Arts and Crafters. Most Craft Fairs have been cancelled and all Galleries have been closed for various lengths of time.
I am now sitting at home in my Studio with lots of new piece made, ready for my Biggest Craft Fair of the year - The Alstonville Quota Craft & Garden Fair. Sadly, both for the stallholders and Quota, their Fair has been cancelled for the second year in a row.
All four Galleries where I display and sell my Pearls are Closed until further notice, or whenever we come out of lockdown - an unknown.
Two Galleries have website and you can purchase pieces they have in their Galleries when the lockdown was announced.
Coldstream Gallery - Ulmarra NSW www.coldstreamgallery.com.au
Creative Artisans GAllery - Ballina NSW www.creativeartisans.org.au
I am loading many new pieces onto my website so that you can have a look and if you like a piece, purchase it.
I can also make to order, as long as I have the Pearls in stock.
I have also been making Face Masks (I was a Dressmaker in a past life)
Have a look at what I have or contact me at [email protected] or M:0400 501 347
Cheers and stay Safe,
