The Queen's Diamond Jubilee

Whether you're into the spirit of the Queen's Jubilee this summer or not, there's no question there's a lot of fun activities going on in Windsor & Eton this summer! There's the official website if you want to see where the various royal family members will be - http://www.thediamondjubilee.org/ and if you're not so into that, then you can just do the fun bit - the street parties! There's bound to be one in your area, and you can get tickets for tomorrow, 3 June, for Eton' street party (might be sold out by now though!). In any case, a great excuse to pick a day with nice weather to wander around Windsor & Eton. You can pop over the bridge from Windsor into Eton and see the Jam gallery, with its new logo and building colour which looks great! The gallery has lots of interesting work from many individual makers - in jewellery, ceramics, glass and more. (Including my work, so obviously I'm biased!!) You can also follow the travelling exhibition of jewellery on the theme of the Jubilee organised by the Association for Contemporary Jewellery.
