What’s on the bench…

Windchime made from old cutlery

I joined Instagram in January and instantly loved it. It’s like having a visual diary and I try and post to me timeline on a regular basis, but often it’s on the days I’m in the studio working.

I’ve met so many amazing people on there this year and most amazingly a lot of them were also doing BCTF this year, so after a load of online chit chat, I got to meet them all in person in Harrogate. It was brilliant. I’ve decided to do a weekly round up of some of my favourite images from my timeline and so here goes…

It was my neighbours 70s birthday last week and we did a suprise party for her. She’d asked me ages ago to make her a windchime from some of the old cutlery she’d found in her dads basement – the stuff I used for my BCTF display – so I thought this would make a lovely gift. I’d never made a windchime from cutlery before, so it was a bit of an adventure.

What do you think?

I love it. My neighbour loves it… Commissions taken! I have lots of cutlery, beads and wire to play with and I’d be up for making more of these. Comment below if you’re interested.
