I’ve hardly had any time at the bench this week, but yesterday, afternoon while Milo was napping, I snuck in and finished off the domes I’d made in my jewellery class last week.
Sorry for the delay – Christmas was busy/hectic as was New Year and it’s taken some time to get back and settled into homelife again and that’s not a subdued affair either. So I’m only just getting round to posting up images of the pre-christmas jewellery workshop I did with family that I mentioned on […]

I want to move away from the a recognisable spoon bowl or stem and start working with the raw materials and shapes and see what I […]
My head is exploding with ideas for new jewellery but there are just not got enough hours in the day for me to be able to sit down at my bench to put any of them into practice…
