Links to Other Artists/Makers
Here are some links to other web sites that you may find interesting, including those of better and greater artists than I whose work I admire. I can only hope that, one day, I can be even a fraction as good as they.
In the meantime, I will only charge a fraction of their prices for my humble offerings.
Just about everybody on the Goldsmiths Company who's-who site.
Rachel Emmerson, Phil Barnes, Rachel Gogerly. All produce magnificent enamel work. I've done some excellent workshops with Rachel G.
Brett Payne Stunning silver-smithing work. Needs to be seen to be appreciated fully (like most things).
Ann Parkin. A friend, neighbour and very talented artist. I have several of her paintings and treasure them.
daddisonish: well, if I can't indulge in a bit of nepotism on my own web site, where can I? Actually, I think his work is brilliant. Don't be fooled (like I was) by his minimalist home page. He is also a partner in AllThatGoodStuff. Need a web site: they are good.

Links to Odd Stuff
They don't come any odder than my fellow jewellers on the UK Jewellers Collective forum. Many jewellery work alone, like myself, and, let's face it, sometimes you need a bit of comradely banter to stay sane. It's too late for some, though, so be warned, you enter their web site at your peril: they are... er "fun"?
Finally, possibly the oddest link to find on a jewellery site would be one to a site about Pennine Rumblers. It's a Community Drum Circle based in Penistone. But, since I run it, and this section is headed 'odd stuff', it seems fair game to mention it here.
