May Newsletter

Thank you for your generous support of my Seven Day Studio Sale earlier this month, I'm delighted to tell you that I was able to make a donation of £553.13 including GiftAid to Helen and Douglas House hospice in Oxford.

In June it will be 25 years since I set up my first workshop outside of my living room. I was given a start up award by the Clerkenwell Green Association (Craft Central) in 1995 which included subsidised workshop space in Clerkenwell, London and a generous package of business support, I'm very grateful for this helping hand as I started out. 
I will celebrate the moment at some point this year and you'll be the first to know!

I continue to be busy working on commissions and new work for Goldsmiths' Fair which is still scheduled to take place in the autumn. I'll be exhibiting in week 2 at Goldsmiths' Hall 29th Sept - 4th Oct. See a full list of exhibiters over both weeks of the Fair here

Thank you for your ongoing interest in and support for what I do, please feel free to share this with anyone you think might enjoy it and if you'd like to see more of what I'm up to you can find regular updates on Instagram where I'm @sarahpulvertaft

April Newsletter and Seven Day Studio Sale

In normal times I'd have been preparing to open my workshop for Oxfordshire Artweeks Open Studios which is one of my favourite annual events, a chance to welcome visitors into my workshop.

Sadly this year you won't be able to visit me, so I thought I'd try something new and throw my first Online Studio Sale (corks pop, fireworks, cornucopia etc!). I've loaded all my stock including some new designs onto the website so that you can see everything.

Seven Day Studio Sale
9am 29th April - midnight 6th May

15% discount + free worldwide delivery on all online purchases of jewellery or gift cards.

I'll donate 10% of all online sales during this period to Helen and Douglas House hospice for babies and children. This wonderful charity is based in Oxford and relies on public donations for the majority of its income.

The sale code is Studio Sale and you'll be prompted to enter it at the checkout to activate the discount.
NB. The code will be active from 9am on Wednesday 29th April until midnight Wednesday 6th May.
Enjoy and Thank you!

March Newsletter and introducing Unique

I hope you're keeping safe and well in these strange times.

Thank you very much to all of you who came to see Jed, Beatrice and me and our collaborative project at Collect 2020, we showed the 6 brooches we’d made together as LOT to an enthusiastic audience and it was lovely to have the opportunity to speak with so many people about pieces we'd been developing for the best part of a year. We were all set to exhibit again with Future Icons - The Future of Craft Selects at London Craft Week at the end of April but as I’m sure you know COVID-19 has understandably put all that on hold with all shows for the foreseeable future cancelled or postponed. I'll keep you posted about the rescheduling of London Craft Week.

You can still follow our collaboration as it continues on Instagram @lotcollaboration and I’ll keep you up to date with future individual and collaboration exhibitions in the months ahead.

In the meantime I’m continuing to work, more from home for the moment, although as my workshop is so isolated I have been working on some commissions and will keep making for as long as I can.

I’ve made some improvements to my website to keep you abreast of what I’m doing and what pieces I have in stock should you feel the urge to purchase jewellery. I’m still able to post out for next day delivery and will do so for as long as our fantastic postmen and women keep delivering! In particular I’ve added a section called Unique. Here I’ve gathered together pieces from across my collections, which are as the title suggests one of a kind. When a Unique item is sold it will not be repeated but its image will remain on the page to serve both as a catalogue of one off pieces and an inspirational resource should you be looking for something a little bit different.

As always you’re very welcome to get in touch with me to discuss any jobs that you might have been thinking about for a while, I’m happy to talk through ideas and sketch them up for you – there’s a gallery of selected past commissions on the website.

Thank you for your support and interest in my work and I hope to see you later in the year – in the meantime please stay safe and well X

LOT Collaboration at Collect Open - Collect 2020

LOT is a collaborative project between myself, jeweller Jed Green and embroiderer Beatrice Mayfield. In a process with echoes of the Surrealist parlour game Exquisite Corpse, we have created 6 brooches in our second project together, LOT2, whose theme is Colour.

We'll be exhibiting these new pieces at Collect Open at Collect 2020 presented by the Crafts Council.
