Craft & Design Month at Greenwich Market

We are now in the middle of Craft & Design Month 2011, a national celebration and promotion of crafts across the UK sponsored by Craft & Design Magazine. Greenwich Market are supporting this with special Friday events to promote local craftspeople. Last Friday featured toys gifts and stationary and the 27th will showcase homes and interiors, but this Friday (20th) is the Fashion & Jewellery event, which naturally I'm attending along with other GM designer makers Coco Barclay and Red Dolphins.

To celebrate this occasion I have chosen Friday to launch my new men's range - Beorc. The designs use silver and leather as well as other organic elements to create subtle wearable jewellery and accessories, packaged in it's own, entirely recycled boxes. In addition to this dedicated range I have a number of items that could be worn by both men and women.

The featured makers will be showing in the market garden, but there will be many of the other, regular traders around the market, covering a gamut of handmade and fairly traded items.The market will be open from 10-5.30 as usual, so grab the chance to pop down and support British Crafts.
