Welcome back everyone and hello 2017!

We are a little late in sending you the first mail out of the year but we wanted to get things straight before emailing you half a story. We shall resume normal mail outs once a month as of beginning March so we're hoping that is alright for you all.

We are excited for this year and with last year behind us, a year that we're glad to see the back of as I'm sure most of you will agree, its time to look forward to the coming year with positive vibes and vision.

This year we will still have wonderful exhibitions on the feature wall and in dedicated cabinets. We will still have beautiful bespoke jewellery by some amazing designers. We will be developing the online shop presence for those further afield who cannot get to us and we shall also be launching our Jewellery School officially with new tutors and workshops dedicated to jewellery making.

With all that we have an extra something special we have been working hard on
(which is why we weren't open til 11th January) and that was redesigning part of our ground floor space back into an inviting, beautiful gallery again filled with gorgeous artwork by local artist Tony Brodrick. Tony has been an artist and framer for many years and brings various styles of work to the gallery along with guest Nottingham artist John M Pooler. With this being a permanent space for Tony we were delighted to let him name his space so it has been aptly named 
'Brodrick's Gallery and Framing'. 

We are blessed to have him aboard and part of our growing creative team so Welcome Tony.

We are back our previous opening hours which are Tuesday to Friday 10-6pm and
Saturday 10-5pm.
Artist for the month of Jan/February
Tony Brodrick- Painter

Tony is a Nottingham artist who has been painting for many years. Working in various mediums including oils and watercolours Tony has a few different styles which lend themselves depending on what hes working on, what mood he is in, and the finish he's aiming for in a piece. A previous gallery owner of long standing he has many followers in the art world and exhibits his work across the country in many professional galleries.
Alongside his painting Tony does bespoke framing for his own work and customers alike so be sure to pop in for a framing quote on his days in (TBC).

Join us on Saturday 28th January for the official opening day of the downstairs gallery and meet Tony.
