We Make London Camden Boutique

I am pleased to announce that Jewellery Designs by Sarah Birt now has a little corner of the We Make London Designers Boutique in Camden!

The address is: 
53 Camden Lock Place
West Yard

I have taken some photos of the approach to the shop to try to make it easy to find although if you follow the signs for West Yard Street Food and look out for the sky blue window frames and door, you should find it quite easily.

How to find the We Make London Boutique:

First, exit Camden Town tube station and follow the crowds towards the famous Camden Lock painted bridge.

Then walk past the orange juice stall and the Irregular Choice shoe shop, turn left into the market and look for the arrows pointing for West Yard Street Food.

Once you are in West Yard, you will see many food stalls and people sitting, enjoying the unique Camden market atmosphere. The boutique is number 53 so look out for bright blue window frames and card holders outside.

My jewellery should be on the window sill on the left hand side of the shop. I will post more photos but this gives you an idea of the exciting range of handmade items made by UK designers.

These are just a few of the items from Jewellery Designs by Sarah Birt that will be available in July (while stocks last!) 

You can of course still shop online at my etsy shop and you can find about more about the We Make London Boutique here.

Happy Shopping!

Fouloubal Poterie Beautiful Pottery from South West France

Just off the beaten track near Najac in South West France, is a lovely pottery workshop called Fouloubal Poterie. 

The prices are incredibly reasonable and with such beautiful items as this beaker made from copper rich local clay (hence the natural red colour effect mixed with the dove grey glaze)

and this sweet woodland tile, even someone on a budget can afford a locally made artisanal piece.

I have a particular love of wild boars (you can see my brooch based on the Chiddingly Boar here) and I purchased this pale blue glazed boar for my collection for only €5.

Fouloubal Poterie has a website here where you can see other designs.

Well worth a visit!
