I have introduced a couple of new ranges to barneycraft for 2021, amongst which is the leather and glass pendant necklace shown above. The leather necklace is braided by me from two colours of 0.5mm and 1.00mm cord and the pendant is also hand made by myself using layers of solid glass shapes, glass powders and glass granules which I fire to around 800c in my small kiln. I am also using my newly adopted braiding techniques to include beads in the cords and I am also attaching my glass pendants to my more traditional gemstone bead designs.
I’m hopeful that Northern Crafts will be able to start their fairs and markets again from May and I’m looking forward to showing my new designs at The Witham in Barnard Castle from June.
Later in the year, I’m planning to launch some bits and pieces in fine silver and I have started to explore the idea of using copper for some of my designs.
