75 New Street, Salisbury

Been busy stocking new galleries this month: I now have work in this lovely gallery ‘75 New Street‘ in Salisbury, run by fellow maker Helen Noakes.

Helen is known for her quirky range of jewellery featuring miniture models set in resin, and her talents don’t stop there. I love these little penguin earrings: very cute!

But back to the gallery, which looks gorgeous. One of the nice things about jewellery is that you don’t need to have a big space to hold quite a lot of it. And Helen has managed to get an excellent balance. Not only does the gallery feel contemporary and quite plush, despite it’s minimal size, but it’s also well stocked.

Helen rotates stock from different makers, so at the moment she’s featuring work by Amy Keeper, Henrietta Fernandez, Karen Dell’Armi, Mandana Oskoui, Selina Cambell and Nobuko Okumura. As well as her own work and mine of course!

The gallery is well situated. New Street is very central whilst not being full of chain stores. In fact it felt like quite a select street, with the very smart and contempary Regent Tailoring next door (mens and womens clothing and accessories). I couldn’t resist a new organic cotton stripey t-shirt, and felt seriously tempted by some hand-sewn pyjamas!

I really wished I’d had more time to explore: Salisbury looked like a great place to visit, and I’ll definitely be back to explore it in more depth.
