2018 November's End

Posted by Barb Hudson on

Always full of great intentions of writing regularly, the days fly past... designs to be created, clients orders need filling, other work is important and while these blogs are vital they seem to reluctantly get missed from the 'things we must do' list! We have temporarily parked the crochet scoods and accessories... time is a big factor and whole we still have some on hand to sell we will not be creating a summer range this year. However we have further developed the jewellery side. Barisa Studio now has a lovely range of 'one off', fairly chunky necklaces, cuffs and...

The Little Big Vintage Market

Posted by Barb Hudson on

  Saturday's Little Big Market started quietly but that soon changed and it was great fun...lots of lovely people to talk to, cute kids who wanted to buy pendants with money they had saved, and the possibility of some future commissions.
