Hello from Jo
Wow what a year. I hope you’re holding up okay out there and coping with this second lockdown so far. Last week was tense with The Count wasn’t it!? Thank goodness for the Biden/Harris win!
So Christmas is feeling very different this year isn’t it? What is making me feel a lot more warm and fuzzy is all the love and support for small, independent businesses who - like me - would usually be looking forward to all the usual Christmas markets and fairs. Judging by the way people are coming together and embracing online shopping, particularly choosing makers and micro businesses that may be struggling at the moment - I’m sure we can still help each other and make this one fun and special. As many of you know I am based at the wonderful Cockpit Arts Studios in Deptford. Sadly our lovely Christmas open studios will not be in the flesh this year but you can still check out all the amazing work of Cockpit Arts designers on the Cockpit Arts Website - Check it out!
During the last lockdown I was busy building this new website (it was long overdue!), I hope you like it! So far during this lockdown I’ve been busy designing a new capsule range: GLINT studs. They’re super wearable, pared-down studs in playful shapes, available as singles - perfect for mixing and matching. They’ll be exclusively available on my website very soon. They’re all 18ct yellow gold so they’ll look great and last, but I’m going to try to keep the costs right down for now so hopefully you can gift some to a friend (or yourself!) this Christmas. Watch this space…
Also, I’ve got a big surprise for you up my sleeve, more news on that next week.
Love, Jo x
