The sky is a brilliant blue. There is no more snow on the ground here in Kincardine. The trees are casting shadows unique to early spring when their branches are still bare and the sunlight is bold and clear without the green of the leaves to filter it. The air is crisp but the sun is warm. The day is pregnant with the promise of summertime.
My workshop underwent some renovations this winter. We moved it to the other side of the house, upgraded the electrical and the lighting, put in brand new shelving and added an extra work table. My new space is small and bright, clean and efficient; just perfect.
I’ve been enjoying putting together my spring and summer line. I’ve decided to offer my moss green again this spring along with a group in pastel pink, and one in denim blue. I’ve chosen to warm up my yellow group this season to a soft butter shade accented by brass wire and amber-coloured glass. Also look for a neutral colour group of crisp white, clear glass, silver metal and grey glass accented with pearls, shells, crystals and stone.
I am looking forward to connecting with many of you in the coming months. I will be starting my 2017 show schedule with two of my favourite local maple festivals followed by London’s delightful annual Good Friday Spring Craft Show. I am still waiting for a response from the coordinators of one or two shows but the Spring/Summer schedule enclosed is mostly complete. Keep an eye on my website for any additions or changes to the list. www.racheljoyvanrooyenjewellery.com
See you soon!
