Just a quick thank you to those who have taken up the '+ 20% free thank you' credit certificates. Just putting new ones up to make more clear what is on offer and to introduce a 25€ version, the result of some welcome feedback.
I hope you are all well and bearing with courage the necessary precautions to protect you and you loved ones during this very unusual time.
My workshop is closed to the public in line with the governments orders and of course we are all having to accept these are going to be difficult times.
With that in mind I am attaching an example of a new credit certificate in which, I hope, you will invest.
The certificates can be bought singly or in multiples and can be given as presents, used to buy jewellery through my web site or in person at my workshop in Caunes when it is business as usual.
If jewellery is ordered through my web site, postage within France will be free.
Many artisans d’art are going to find this period of upheaval very very difficult and although the government are promising financial aid to protect small businesses, any measures will take time to implement and so, every little helps. If you can’t help me then please help another.
The certificates have no time limit; You can pay through paypal or directly into my bank account the details of which are shown at the bottom of the certificate.
Please contact me through messenger, https://www.facebook.com/atelierdumonestier/ or www.bobkimberley.eu if you wish to help and when payment is received I will send you the numbered certificates by e-mail.
NEW YEAR - the 20s - roaring?
Happy New Year to you all..health and happiness to you and your families and friends.
Le bauhaus - 100 years
Hello all. Having started the year in a bit of a creative black hole, I finally made it out with a little help from Nele. "Go back to the basics of what you do" she said, "the simple geometric forms on which all your work is fundamentally based"...took a while but then discovering that this year is the 100th birthday of the design school of thinking known as Bauhaus things started falling into place and a new collection was on the way. My passion being rings that is where I started and here are just a couple of examples from the new collection. If you are in or around La Livinière down here in the south of France you can see more on exhibition at Domain de Oustal..see below..and more will be posted on my facebook page soon and be available by commission here on my website..let me know what you think...Bob
Happy New Year
I hope that you all had a great time celebrating the arrival of 2019...I spent time with some good friends walking from one house to another, eating, drinking and having fun and seeing in the midnight hour around a bonfire, with a bottle or two of fizz... bien sûr!...Now I am in Spain.... for three months.... A bit of holiday time and then to work on a new collection. I'll be back in Caunes and in my workshop on April 1st which will be when some of the new collection for 2019 will be available to view, both here in my eShop and in my workshop in Caunes Minervois....see you soon....hasta luego....a bientôt.....
