The Munro is a small independant gift boutique located within walking distance of Markinch train station, here in Fife. I had the pleasure of meeting the owner at Scotland’s Trade Fair in Spetember where she placed an order for my Antique Silverware Rings.
Lynne is incredibly passionate about the products she stocks and I know my rings are in good hands. They will probably fly off the shelf as soon as she puts them on display, as she totally loves the collection and the story behind these wearbale heirlooms.
Meeting stockists in person at a trade show gives me the opportunity to tell the story behind my jewellery and show how a humble teaspoon can be transformed in so many ways. The rings are a starting point and the waste from this collection (spoon bowls and silver dust) go on to be made into unique pieces in my other collections.
Seeing all three collections together really brings home the meaning behind my motto of ‘too good to waste’ and I love telling my jewellery’s story over and over again as I’m incredibly passionate about what I do and the materials I work with. It’s great when a buyer gets the story and loves it as much as I do and then becomes a stockist.
Lynne and I have been stalking each other on Instagram for ages, so it was great to meet in person at last and it was a great opportunity for her to see my jewellery collections first hand and personally select the rings she wanted to sell in her tiny boutique.
Lynne popped by my studio in Kinghorn last week to collect her order. So if you’re in the Markinch area, be sure to pop by The Munro soon before she sells the lot.
