Technical difficulties

Just a quick note to say that we've had a few issues with getting the new jewellery photographed over the past week, including a crazy half blackout last night, so the shop update will now be happening this Friday. Today is the winter solstice, so hopefully we'll be getting a few more glimpses of sunlight as the days go on. I'll be sipping a glass or two of wine tonight to ring in the change of seasons!

Just a quick note to show you something we've been working on lately, and to let you know that after making a small debut at the Auckland Art & Craft Fair last weekend, our new jewellery line will be released this Monday 20th, June. It will include the above wooden rings (and hopefully a few more) that I am really excited about. I think my dreams of a geodesic dome (and hello, I've found one!!) were playing heavily on my mind when I made these. Each ring is totally unique as I'm not big on following set patterns (read: I am not patient enough), and while there will be similar shapes and lines, I like that they are all one of a kind pieces. We're still figuring out the sizing, but are more than open to creating custom rings in a particular style if your size isn't available.

Speaking of the Auckland Art & Craft Fair, we had the best time there and thank you so much to all of you who stopped by and said hello! Annoyingly, I forgot my camera but you can take a look at some here. I particularly like this one of Richard working on new necklaces that sold as fast as he could hang them up!

A few things:

- This child is incredible.
- Too Much Success, and interesting and important conversation being started over on Poppytalk.
- Incredible sleepwear in perfect colours with the comfiest looking fabric by Poplin
- A song I keep going back to, and back to at the moment. The beautiful Sandy Denny.

Hope you're all well, friends.
