Surrey Heath event went well last Saturday and our display was eye catching.
As the only precious gemstone jewellery at the show we had no competition from the bead and costume jewellery sellers on the day.

Selling well on the day was African Garnet ear studs, Amber Bracelets (just perfect for summer) and Sapphires took centre stage again.
Our next event is 17th & 18th May at Shenley Park & Gardens.

Sywell Aerodrome Event

The last event was over the Easter weekend in the lovely Art-Deco Aviator Hotel & Aerodrome.
Sunday was cold and wet although a steady flow of people attended. Monday was by far the best day with sunshine and small 2-person planes taking off nearby.
There were other jewellers at the event (4) although some didn't sell any of their products, we did the best of all.
Amber cherry flame and lemon flute rings seem to have been particularly popular and so too were the Dragonfly Sterling Silver Ear-studs & Dragonfly costume necklace. If you want to see what sold, take a look at the shopping tabs to the left of the website.

Our next scheduled event is Saturday May 24th at the Hertfordshire County Show.

Black Polo Shirt uniform

The lovely black polo shirts with silver embroidered Festoon UK logo are now being worn at all events.
