Earth Wind And Fire

Well the sun was shinning today and i was indoors all day making more torch fired enamel beads and this ring. I have used a rough cut fire opal, I oxidised this to give the finished piece a more organic look. I also had a great day out with my lovely kids, hubby and my little dog yesterday up in Edinburgh, We sat in princess street gardens eating crepes, yum yum. It is really busy up in Edinburgh at the moment as the festival is on. I also had a look around all the craft stalls, i was very good only bought a few beads. Well i'm now of to bed hope everyone had a lovely weekend.
