A clear focus

I have come to the momentous decision to close my online business Kay’s Artycles. There are all sorts of reasons why I’ve chosen to do this, but the main one is to concentrate on my art and jewellery work. It has been a tough decision to make, and a great deal of angst in it’s process. So, I will shut the shopping facility down on the webstore on 31st December this year (2014). I am not going to have a ‘closing down sale’ I will continue to trade in a small way. Kay’s Artycles will be at The Bead Show in Box Hill June 19 – 21, 2015 and also BSV’s Bead Expo, Moorabbin, November 6-8, 2015.

I will continue to teach both at home in my studio and at venues around Victoria (hopefully other states too!) I will also continue to allow personal shopping at Neerim South by Appointment. However, once stock of items is gone it will not be reordered.

This new website is now a celebration of the step in a more focused direction.  My creative endeavours, the journey, the learning, and the results, whether they be ‘good’ or ‘bad’!
