Beyond Adornment at New Ashgate Gallery

Today I took my first trip to Farnham, Surrey. I went especially to see the last day of the Beyond Adornment exhibition at New Ashgate Gallery. This was the exhibition for which I had entered a necklace after an open call for submissions. It was great to finally see the gallery as it is such an established venue for craft and I had heard a lot about it. The building is lovely inside and out. NAG

The Beyond Adornment exhibition was upstairs and my necklace was in a cabinet alongside the other open call submissions from Dani Crompton, Ruth Facey, Nina Gale, Poppy Porter, Rebecca Skeels, Chantal Walter, Elaine Ainslie, Claire Moore, Jaci Foster and Harriet Walford. I wonder which piece I'll receive in the swap!

It was good to go and see my work, having not really heard much since confirmation that I was in the exhibition. To see it in person was lovely as it made it real!
