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,


  1. Oh well done you, what gorgeous pieces. I hope you are really pleased with your efforts, they are fantastic.

  2. Oh I am so jealous - would love a day hammering and soldering with Jo - unfortunately, Switzerland is just too far away! But well done to you - beautiful pieces and all in a day too !
    Have a good weekend.

  3. Can't believe it's taken me s long to comment! I commented on your photos on flickr but haven't caught up with all the blogs I follow until now!
    Thanks for coming the whole length of the country to make jewellery with me. It was great to meet you in real life at last. I think your bracelet is my favourite - the combination of the textured copper and the silver chain is really lovely.
