York was beautiful. All the buildings were so old, and each seemed to emit an ancient history. It was a small town but had so much to offer. Monuments that accented the streets were a muse for the form and body of the collection I'm working on now.
Of course I stopped by the souvenir shops and the typical English pubs, we even went on one of those tour buses around the city. It gave me a great opportunity to see the all the little nooks of the city, but what really caught me was the architechture and history of this little town...

Well, like I said, we stayed in Manchester while visiting my eldest daughter. Manchester University has to be one of the most stunning college campuses I've seen. Again, the architecture is amazing, and there is such a mix of old and modern that work harmoniously - I want to incorporate this aspect into my jewelry.
