The Benjamin Black Goldsmiths Nelson studio and workshop is now officially open for business!

I’m really excited to invite you all to visit my new studio on Bridge Street. It’s been a fantastic process reinventing my online business into a physical retail store. There was a lot of work involved, and I’m really happy with the end result.

I threw a launch party last Friday to celebrate. We had champagne from No.1 Estate, and delicious h’orderves from Mint Dining Room. The band did a great job of keeping our feet tapping and there was even a very smart looking Benjamin Black cake.

My guests had the opportunity to see my collections first hand, and even try a thing or two on. The feedback and support from everyone who attended was brilliant and I can’t wait to start working alongside people who enjoy the design and creation process as much as I do.

Here’s a sneak peek at some photos of the event:
