I'm exhibiting at my first trade show next week. International Jewellery London at Earls Court.
At least with a trade show I don't have to have loads of stock made up in the hope of selling it all. This time I'm supposed to take the orders and then panic at the thought of having to make them up in time. I'm distracting myself by being online when I really should be getting on with my catalogue, my portfolio, my lookbook and, of course my actual jewellery.
I met a fellow exhibitor in the newsagents as we were both flicking through a copy of Retail Jeweller to see if we were in it. Really funny. Fortunately we both were, though they didn't print any pics of my jewellery. (weird!) I mean, as interesting as I am (I really an, just ask my mum!) surely the whole point of writing about my jewellery would be to show it. That way they wouldn't have to have written 2 paragraphs describing it. But hey, I'm still really pleased to be in the mag.
