Back again, i have just been working away today on a few pieces, the necklace, bracelet and earrings are for a commission, so they are going to their new home soon, The bracelet which is all made using sterling silver with the flower in the centre is another design to add to my little flower collection, as i said before im trying to work on some jewellery that will be a bridal collection. It's been great the past two weeks, ive been off on holiday from my normal full time job, and i have been working away at my workshop which has been great. Tonight im heading out for a while to enjoy a few vino's and to watch the parade/fancy dress in musselburgh. Hope you all have a great weekend,x

Here is a piece i made at the workshop today, this piece measures just over 3". Im thinking i might start a collection for brides, but just need to push myself to see who wants to stock them, im not a fan of knocking on doors so to speck. I have been on holiday all this week and it's great as i have been going into my workshop on a few days, rather than a few hours at night here and there. Tomorrow is my birthday so thinking i will go out for lunch with the family, that should be nice, Now i think i might sit and relax with a lovely chilled glass of rose wine.xx

Here is a few pieces that i have been working on, and i just finished them and finally got around to take a quick picture. I had a exhibition a few weeks ago and i did quite well so im pleased with how that went. Im hoping to list a few pieces tomorrow on my etsy site. Tomorrow is also the start of the school kids summer holidays 7 weeks of sheer bless (hell) Im not lucky enough this year to be going anywhere special so it will be day trips here and there. I have 2 weeks off at the end of the month and im also turning 36 in the next 3 weeks and my son will be 14 so hopefully we can do something special for that. Hope everyone is being busy with craft fairs and festival and making some money, i now wish you all and good night my bed is calling me.x

I know it's been ages since my last post, I just never seem to have any spare time at the moment. I have been so busy at work, my working partner feel at christmas and broke her leg in two places so it's just been me at work. I have been working away at my workshop which i just love, it's so much easier when you have the correct tools to hand. I have made this broach, using copper sheet which i have cut into little leaf shapes, i then textured using a rolling mill. I have made a few more pieces which are on my flickr site, please feel free to have a look and let me know what you think.
