KT Robbins Ceramics now available at In-Spaces
Most people I know either love or hate social media. I come in the former category and at home I'm often berated for spending too much time on-line... But as we all know, it's the way of the world, and it can be a very useful way of keeping up-to-date with absolutely everything!
Anyway, I'm actually pretty excited that my first listed is with a great new on-line store which sells beautiful items for the home, sourced from boutique and emerging designers who use nature as their inspiration. Have a mooch at In-Spaces.
And the reason I'm being listed was due to being tenacious and keeping up to date with the media in general....
It all started when I noticed a link originally from the Daily Mail about coastal trends that HandmakeMe posted, as one of their makers was included in the feature. Daily Mail feature.
In particular this picture with its sea-urchin candle-holder caught my eye because I had been making some 'sea-urchin' inspired vessels for an exhibition at the Mac.
So, I had a little look at In-Spaces on Twitter and they had asked if the coastal inspired feature in the Daily Mail had inspired anyone. To which I replied 'Yes' accompanied with my sea-inspired creation (left).
So, I think I owe a big thank-you to the website, Handmakeme where you can buy customised, hand-made items from a hand-picked skilled makers. They are also stocking some of my 'sea-side rock' cuff-links and necklaces from today too.
And it just goes to show that sometimes you have to be a bit nosey and a bit friendly to find new opportunities. Anyone else got a positive social media success story to share?
