jewellery and design trade fair in Queenstown

The new jewellery designs are in and they are stunning! I'm very pleased with how the kiwi and the pukeko have turned out, but most of all the pieces are in nz plywood which I think will do better then the acrylics. I'm keen to develop and grow in the eco/organic market of the niche of high end sustainable new zealand design. More about that in the next few days...

Through twitter I've met the lovely musician and jewellery designer Boh Runga who's been kind in recommending a wholesaler to me for chains. I decided to visit her stockist Kapa Design Gallery in Queenstown and see whether my work would appeal to them to sell, as I was there for the day yesterday. Jackie and Mark turned out to be incredibely nice and we hit it off. They got excited about my designs and we agreed I'm going to supply them with my work. Yay! I'm confident they will sell well there. Their gallery Kapa Design is located in Rees street and -of course- beautiful. I'm very proud to have my work on display there.

As you can imagine I'm quite the bouncy fluff bunny today and Nico had to laugh as I'm still fizzing. He joined me for the day to Queenstown to visit Furnatex which is a furniture/interior design tradefair held once a year there. It was wonderful to see the new fabrics and furniture designs. We were particularly taken with a clever coffeetable Davies Furniture came up with that transforms in a small desk/table. Very handy for lofts and small appartments. Today I've been busy with clients coming in who require furniture or solutions for their interior with drapery and wallpaper. It's all good and I'm happy.
