Severn Sisters - A True Community! — Anna Fine Jewellery

Severn Sisters – A True Community! — Anna Fine Jewellery

I’ve prepared a pair of blogs more than the very last couple of months that I did not truly publish. I’m not positive why, but I’m heading to just go with the concept that if I believed they were any very good, I’d have finished creating and released them!

Nowadays although, I do truly have a thing worth crafting about. It’s a story of serious group and collaboration, of outrageous strategies, hard get the job done and tons of love…

About this time last 12 months (wow! It was that extended ago, I just seemed it up!!) I was questioned to be portion of a group exhibition of artists that had been either inspired by or worked along with the river Severn. I just about mentioned no, as I generally found to be fully snowed beneath with commissions and under no circumstances get any time to make everything other than that.

I didn’t say no though…I determined to commit to undertaking anything, that had grow to be just a minor outside my convenience zone. I joined the Severn Sisters and we place on our 1st exhibition at 7Q Gallery in Chepstow.

The exhibition looked wonderful and pretty good product sales were being designed, but I want to notify you about our “second” event….Open House……

It was all the brave thought of Annie Brennan, who we’ve now all named our “mother superior”. An strategy based all over identical exhibitions that she’d visited/listened to of in town centres – all of the “sisters” placing on an exhibition above a weekend, in her dwelling. So, soon after some meetings, some treats and a couple beverages, with no marketing spending plan and no concept if any one would occur, we resolved to go for it!

Well… I believe the only words and phrases to describe this earlier weekend are resounding accomplishment!! There ended up 13 of us included all together, and just by some social media sharing and a bit of leaflet printing on our household printers, people today did obtain out at about it – loads of people today in simple fact! It just goes to demonstrate that if you set your brain to it, and give your very greatest exertion, anything is feasible!

For me nevertheless, the authentic results has been acquiring this astounding team of girls (and 1 token person of training course) that have just been so supportive to every single other in the course of the organisation and the actual event. About the earlier couple of months, but specifically all through the Open up Home by itself, we chatted about so a lot of issues and shared so a lot of laughs. Theres obviously been hugs, but to be straightforward, it feels like the Severn Sisters are just just one massive consistent hug. The way that the team just gelled was naturally discovered by our website visitors as 1 of them believed that we all lived and worked with each other in Annie’s home!

We’re all distinct ages, from distinctive spots and backgrounds and have distinctive views, likes and dislikes, and that’s certainly ok. I come to feel so privileged to have been questioned to be portion of this astounding small local community and I cannot hold out to start out imagining about what we do up coming!
