So why call my jewellery line and online shop Big Skies Jewellery?
Well, I recently went back to England to visit my parents, who still live in the same village that I grew up in – Brancaster, in the county of Norfolk. Although I lived in Norfolk for over 20 years, every time I go back I am still amazed by the skies. I am not sure what it is, maybe the cloud formations (cloud…in England…..how surprising?), but it’s very dramatic.
The skies there have the ability to stop me in my tracks and gaze upwards. When I mentioned this to my mother, as I was trying to take arty sunset photos on the beach, she just nodded and said yes, Norfolk is known for its “big skies”. So when I set up my new Etsy shop, and had to put a name to my creative outlet, what better than Big Skies – something inspirational which also reminds me of where I come from and who I am.
