I recently mentioned on my facebook page that I’d received an interesting package in the post. I don’t know who it is from, but it came via FCA&C as part of their ‘Creative Exchange’. I’ve got until the 30th June to make something from it’s contents and I have no idea what I’m going to […]
A while ago I bought a large sheet of copper for a specific project and only used a small part of it. It’s been sitting in my studio gathering dust ever since. I’ve been thinking for a while what to with it as I don’t like the way that copper stains the skin, so wasn’t […]
I blogged or tweeted recently about working on some new sea glass rings – progress has been a little slow on these as I’ve not been able to get into my studio due to other commitments of late, so here are some images of the initial stages for my next four rings.
I’ve been looking for some biodegradable grip seal bags for a while – something I can use to package my badges up for sale and keep a clear conscience as previously I have been using non-degradable grip seal bags that I bought years ago that needed to be used up. I found a good supplier […]
More of an idea in process than work in progress this week. I’ve had an idea to make small versions of my sea glass pendants and turn them into rings for quite a while now, just not had the time to have a play. But because I’ve been itching to try the idea out for […]
I recently fixed a pair of earrings for my friend Claire and they gave me an idea of how I could approach making my vintage button earrings. Claire’s earring were so simple – just a piece of silver wire, curved and bent in half, with balled silver on one end that held a cut glass […]
I started on this little brooch idea a few weeks ago and it’s been in limbo ever since as I’ve been busy with other things, but I hope to get the first one finished by the end of the week. I intend to make 5 little brooches – all from the teaspoon bowls from a […]
I devoted some time today to finishing off my initial leaf pendant that I started last week and make an additional two. I could have made another three as I have three more spoon heads from this set, but decided to leave those until next week and concentrate on other things.
This morning, in between my day job jobs, I’ve been working on a little autumnal leaf pendant. I’ve been ignoring the spoon heads that were discarded when making my spoon rings for far too long and decided to have a think of what to do with them the other day. I knew I wanted to […]
I bought a beautiful set of silver teaspoons on eBay and they arrived today in a lovely old red case. So I have 6 spoons to make rings from.
