I've finally managed to make enought time to sit down and do my Blog.
It's been a hectic month at Jude's Jewels. We have now completed 20 markets in Edinburgh over the festival period. Really enjoyed all the buzz in the capital, all the Fringe things, and we did OK at the stall too. Gave out a lot of business cards and the orders are now coming in on the website. Met lots of lovely people too.
We are now back into our regular round of farmers markets and Nick has the Jude's Jewels stall in Milngavie today. Depending on the weather, we may be in Helensburgh on Friday. Saturday sees Nick in Paisley and I'll also be at our local market in Stirling. On Sunday we are venturing back to Sloan's Market in Glasgow to give it another go. We used to attend a few years ago but stopped when it became filled with stalls selling cheap imported jewellery, not handmade at all. It seems to have changed back again to a more artisan market, so we will have another try.
Thursday 22nd September is the first Atrium Traders Market of the Autumn semester at Stirling University. We will be there every Thursday till Christmas.
The vintage steampunk glass ball skeleton watch pendants sold out almost immediately, so I have ordered more materials and will be making them again very soon. I've also ordered a load of guitar picks from Australia and will be making a new range of earrings, pendants and maybe necklaces as soon as they arrive.
Scrabble and Lego rings, bracelets and pendants are still selling very well. Lots of cufflinks are being dispatched too. Lovely to see so many overseas orders coming in, so keep them all coming.
The August Newsletter Discount Code is now finished, but another discount code for September will be coming out soon.
I've got to go now because, as always, I've got a pile of orders to get made and dispatched today.
Enjoy the rest of your week.

- I love making jewellery of all kinds. Scrabble and Lego jewellery have been popular for a while but now the 50 Shades of Grey range and the Zingy Blobs are selling well too. I make everything from unique gemstone necklace sets to phone charms. I love making tiaras and bridal jewellery and offer a bespoke service. Cufflinks are very much back in fashion and I have a large selection and am always making more. Pop over to the Jude's Jewels website and have a look.
