|Druzy Geode pendant|
Well, it is 2016! Where did 2015 go? Time seems to be flying by......I can hardly believe that this is our 10th year. We did our first craft fair back in October 2006 at the Bankfield Hotel in Bingley, I cannot believe it will be ten years since we started, it certainly doesn't feel like 10 years. Looking back I feel embarrassed about our first designs and stall layouts. We have learned so much and changed so much in that time. When we first started we were creating a lot of beaded jewellery, first of all with semi-precious gemstones and then we added Swarovski crystals, Murano glass and went on from there. We are still very into our semi-precious gemstones but have found that we have had to constantly change and adapt our designs and ranges to keep our stall and Etsy shop looking fresh and interesting.

We are hoping these will be a huge success. These are just the start of our metal stamping range and we will be creating lots more designs and styles over the coming weeks. I hope they will be popular and as always when launching a new idea, I feel really nervous.
Anyway, as always it seems that I haven't blogged for ages then pack wayyyyyy too much into one post. I will leave you with another druzy geode photo and pop over to see Lucy Blossom and the other crafters over at the first Handmade Monday of 2016.
Happy New Year!!!!!!
