More wholesale enquiries

I've been contacted again for wholesale. This time it was an enquiry for making clock faces. Different! Would be very cool though :)

No new photos today but I thought I'd let you know what's going on with HH. I am waiting to hear back from the NYC boutique on which of my cufflink designs they'd like to stock. I have offered my current range of designs, as well as some new cufflink styles. As I design and make all the cufflinks myself the choice is quite vast!

I am also working on other wholesale opportunities and, if you have done this yourself, you'll know there is a fair bit of to-ing and fro-ing to finalise the deal. It would be nice to get one of these to go ahead as they're after my latticeware bowls which I really love making.

I am a little distracted from work as I just succumbed to buying a wii! It's such fun to play and unwind after a busy day at work. Now I have to juggle the day job, the glass work, an allotment, a social life and a wii! One has to have some time off eh! ;)

steph, steph, where have you been??

i've been the other side of the world! been off on my sabbatical in New Zealand via Hong Kong. very spectacular in NZ and hong kong is very unique. i'm so glad i went, but won't be emmigrating!! it certainly was no relaxing tour. we were mega busy each day and saw so much. usually on the bus by 730 to head off to the next place. got a float plane flight in and a jet boat safari. went up a 62nd floor revolving restaurant in hong kong and did a nighttime boat trip round the harbour. went on a cruise around milford sound, saw loads of waterfalls, a glacier, went on a steam-driven paddleboat, explored the jungle, the beaches, went in a glowworm cave, visited LOTR locations, milked a cow and so much more! busy holiday :D

came back to glassy work - orders to complete. the latest being a 4x 'beached' coaster set, a birthday present for the recipient's friend. hope they go down well. also another wholesale enquiry, this time from a boutique in NYC. exciting!
