After setting up a meeting where I took some of my jewellery to show the manager, Liv and another member of staff and agreeing terms, I waited to hear if the Wetland Centre's head office would agree to them placing an order. They did and a few weeks later I received an order for 40 pieces!
Fantastic, I thought, I can do that! I've just started a new job but hell, I can do that! It took about 2 weeks altogether as most of the pieces are oxidised plus making all the earwires and oxidising and cleaning those up too but I did it. I did take some stock from my Folksy shop to save time and experimented with using a radial disc polisher on my Dremel to clean up some of the oxidised pieces (it worked and saved a lot of time!) and finally everything was ready.
Just a few of the oxidised pieces waiting to be cleaned up!
All bagged up and ready to go followed by a big sigh of relief!
I'd love to show some photos of the Wetland centre too but unfortunately they're copyrighted so I'd better not. I'll be honest I had no idea there was a wetland centre in Arundel. I've been there several times and it turns out the centre is a bit further along a road from The Black Rabbit pub I've visited quite a few times :D
