Elsewhere, I've been busy making my own Etsy TV advert! Well, not really. The dynamic team over in the UK Etsy office were busy last month filming somewhere in London. They got together a team of UK based Etsy sellers (my good friend and fellow jeweller Alexandra was featured, you can visit her Etsy shop here
) and created this:
I've been accepted for my first trade show (BCTF British Craft Trade Fair) which is in April 2015. In anticipation, I've begun to create my own website which you can have a look at here should you be so inclined http://www.carijanehakes.com/
I'll leave you with one final image of the Split Pod ring before I depart to consider some very important private commissions - work in progress photographs to follow!
