Workshop with Liliana Alves - Artisan of Contemporary JewelleryImagination, technique, passion for art and detailed work characterises Liliana Alves’ jewellery. Her delicate filigree work honours the classic method of the Portuguese jewellery heritage, while at the same time combining new techniques developed by herself. In fact, this jewellery designer considers that the filigree method allows the symbiosis between the traditional and the contemporary, the combination that characterises her work. The beauty of her pieces is in perfect harmony between the light, texture and brightness of the materials, as well as the inspiration of the author to instil versatility.

The Vicar of Dibley comes to the AlgarveOne of the best-loved characters in The Vicar of Dibley was iconic Owen Newitt, played by the late Roger Lloyd-Pack. 
Roger had an affinity for the Algarve and was a frequent visitor to his brother, Christopher Lloyd-Pack, who has lived near Lagos for many years.
Christopher, who has also been involved in theatre both onstage and off, and who now teaches GCSE Drama at Aljezur International school, very kindly met us at a recent rehearsal with the Western Algarve Community Choir in Almadena.
