The inspiration for this collection came from the meteorite pieces in my earlier...

Over the past few weeks I feel like I’ve fallen into a big black hole from which I’m only just emerging.  I’ve been flat out preparing for my first European trade show, Inhorgenta, which takes place in Munich from 22-25 February.  Getting ready for any sort of show always seems t...
