On Saturday, after a long drive and an exceptionally early start (3:30 am) due to the awful weather, I had a great time at the Jewellery Maker Studio! I was paired with the gorgeous Vicky who always makes me laugh and is so supportive that I can't fail to have fun! And that I did!
It is always scary, unpacking the carefully wrapped designs that I have made for the show and laying them out on the various busts and mannequins ready to be scrutinised firstly by the crew and then, and ultimately, by the army of talented JM viewers! but when I hear a 'OOH!' or 'AH!' from the team, the first little bubble of nerves pops and I start to relax!
This time my 'OOH' piece was the one featured on the left of this post, Vicky thought that the viewers would like to see how it was constructed in it's entirety and the show was built around showing this piece demonstrated in 3 parts; firstly the chain, then the Clasp, and thirdly the centre piece. You can see these demos on the Youtube video linked below. I also demonstrated one technique from each of the other two kits, and managed to complete a challenge!! Phew! I was a busy bee indeed!
Not surprisingly the 4 hours seemed to fly by and before I knew it we were saying goodbye and packing up to go home again. And of course get my thinking cap on for what to come up with for the next show!! 'No Pressure Gemma' I tell myself, then go right ahead and put some on! You can find the recording of the show and pictures of all my designs featured within it by clicking the button below. Hope you enjoy. x

Gemma you are a very talented lady and I always wath JM when I know you are on. I personally would like to thank you for this wonderful site which is giving us a chance to emulate your designs and maybe put our on indevidual mark to them, as you say nobody really owns a design but without the likes of yourself to show us the way we would be lost and sometimes struggling to come to grips with the more complex styles. Thank you Gemma

I admire Tour talent and skills! And even your beauty. Your designs are really different, extremely idea-rich and beautiful. I would like to have that creativity! But I never was THAT capable and now - I am old!
