Visiting Bovey

Just had a lovely day in Bovey Tracey at the Craft Festival. Good to see fellow Designer Jewellers Group​ members Henrietta Fernandez and Ulli Kaiser exhibiting, and Kelly Munro, one of our New Designers from a couple of years back. All their stands looked great.

I couldn’t resist buying some formica and silver earrings from Emily Kidson, and a painting by textile artist Dionne Swift, and so have come home very happy!


It was also good to see an exhibition of Jan Truman‘s sculptural textile pieces in the Devon Guild of Craftsmen Gallery, just round the corner in Bovey Tracey town. I’m very familiar with Jan’s stunning jewellery, which I’ve sold so much of at the Barbican, but this was on a completely different scale!

A bit of a buswoman’s holiday, but most enjoyable!

The Craft Festival is on for the rest of the weekend, and has recently (deservedly) won Devon’s tourism event of the year, so do get along there if you can!

PS Thanks to Dionne for the image of her painting which I swiped from her website: I’m sure her photo is much better than mine.
