My day with Jo Tinley

Flew down to Sothhampton today to days silversmithing with Jo from Daisychaindesign, I would like to thank Jo as i had a fab day, I really enjoyed it, would love to have stayed for longer, i made this bracelet and pendant, i designed these myself, I used copper for both with sterling silver added into the two pieces. I cut the discs, which where then hammered then doomed, for the chain i used sterling silver which i coiled, then it was cut then soldered, then hammered to give a slight textured look. The pendant i made this little squiggle from sterling silver which was then soldered onto the pendant. Thanks Jo for a fantastic day, you are a excellent teacher,

I started to make these bracelets last year, they always sell really well, for this one i have used purple wire, along with A grade freshwater pearls and swarovski crystals, these pearls have a few different colour tones in them, they have greens/ blues and purples, very nice. will be adding this to the website soon,

commission for Jackie

I have made this for my friend jackie, she loves pink. It is for sunday as her daughter is having her communion, this is the one that i made the tiara for, hope the weather will be fine as we are having a bar-b-que after wards.
