Where in Staffordshire can you buy unique masks?

Look no further than Gallery at 12, Eccleshall.
Now we have Christmas fast approaching peoples minds are starting to focus on winter charity balls and many of these will be masked!
I have written about my masks before on this blog - Back in April I showed you this


This is a knitted mask, I do not have set patterns for my knitted jewellery, I just set to with a pair of knitting needles and see what evolves, so this is a totally unique never to be repeated item, I can make them in any colour, but I can't guarantee what they will look like, so although I make them to order, it is always a case of wait and see!
This one is on show in my jewellery cabinet in Gallery at 12, Eccleshall, Staffordshire.
This isn't the only mask on show in the Gallery, we do have a large selection of leather masks made by a very talented artist Steven Kirk. Below are a few of Steven's masks currently on display in the Gallery.







So, if you have been invited to a masked ball this season, please visit the Gallery in Eccleshall, there are plenty of masks to choose from and if you can't find something to suit your requirements, Steven and I are happy to take on commissions.
This Sunday, 17th October would be a great day to visit as the Gallery is holding an Open Day and most of the artists will be in attendance.
If Eccleshall is not within travelling distance I can also recommend you take a look at Masque Boutique. Where you can view some beautiful Venetian style masks online.
