I recently joined the Guild of Jewellery Designers in the UK.
Why is this news you ask? It allows me to use their logo; provides YOU the buyer the confidence that I am serious about my craft; and I hope it will give my visitors that extra re-assurance that all my items are handmade.
I do not have a presence on the high-street; therefore as one famous UK advert used to say every little helps.
Joining the guild also gives me the chance to speak to other UK jewellery makers and exchange ideas, develop my craft further; and explore new avenues of creativity.
