Some more new pieces just finished

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

More new work

Here is some more new pieces that i have made over weekend, There is more of my little collection of flowers, i love making these in all shapes ans different metals. The earring measure just over an 1" long all in sterling silver. The pendant is also all made using sterling silver this measures over 1", the cab is a black tourmaline quartz, The detail in the stone is just gorgeous, i have cut little flower shapes in the back so you can see more detail. On another note at my workshop this weekend we have been doing ready steady jewel, this is where we have some local jewellers and graduates that have just finished uni, they design a piece, we give them the materials all supplied by a local company, they then have 9 hours to make there piece, then it all gets hallmarked, then on the 30Th August we have a auction, all the money that is raised goes to charities, Chas is one of them this year plus 3 more, I'm really looking forward to seeing all the finshed work. I have also set a face book page with all my work so if you want to follow me just search for silvermeadows, and suggest more people to like me (cheers). I will hopefully add some of my new pieces to etsy this week, it needs a revamp i think. I'm off on holiday next week for 2 weeks, but no holidays for me this year, but I'm in need of some sun, the weather here is rain rain floods, Scottish weather eh. will blog again this week hopefully,x

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.

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

Still here

Here is a new pendant that i have made using sterling silver sheet and 24k gold leaf. I have made a few pieces but still need to get around to take some pictures. It is so nice to see all the summer colours again, being used in every ones creations. Family life has been busy, my son is being really sporty at the moment, he is play football, long distance running, which he came second out of his year group, badminton, so not sure what else he will be doing next, my daughter has taken up playing the drums at school, just waiting on her wanting a drum kit, she also auditioned for glee which is in Edinburgh playhouse, so just waiting to see if she gets in, if not it is all about the experience, she is only 11 so she has plenty time. Hope everyone is enjoying some of the lovely sunshine and lighter nights.x

New work.

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.

Etched bangle

I have taken a couple of pictures of some bangles that i have made, the first is just been hammered then the second is one that have etched. They are both in sterling silver. I will hopefully add these to my etsy site this week, but wanting to take more pictures. Im still waiting on my camera getting fixed, the guy at the shop has had it for 3 weeks and is still to look at it, it's driving me crazy as i have loads of pictures to take. I will also be listing some more of my torch fired enameled butterflies to my etsy, the last set sold today, so i will be making more tomorrow. hope everyone has had a great weekend.

Torch fired enameled butterflies
These have been featured in this months issue of Beads and beyond magazine. Thanks to the lovely Rebecca Anderson, who made a stunning necklace along with earrings and a ring, using my butterflies. These sets are avalible on my etsy site at I have already sold all the other sets that where listed the other day so i had to make a few more sets. Still not the best of pictures, due to the fact that my camera is still to be fixed, the man at the shop has had it for 3 weeks and still not looked at it yet. I have started my new silversmithing course, and have already spent £100 on a few pieces of silver and i mean a few, seeing as the price is just really expensive, but i have another list that i want so sweet talking my hubby tonight so i can order £200 worth, i better be nice to him. Well hope to add more photos to my flickr this week of some more pieces that i have made, as i have a craft fair this saturday, not hoping for much but you never know. Nite all have a great week.x

Some new pieces

I know it's been ages since i last blogged, i must try harder. Well i have now been working in my new workshop, which i love, it's so much better when you have all the tools that you need, it makes life so much easier also. I have added a few pics of some of my new pieces, I have still to finsh of the pendants, but i only take some bits and bobs up with me, as if it was to take all my beads, chain etc there would be no room left for anyone elses stuff. I have made a few more pieces today but i will add them tomorrow. I hope everyone had a great xmas and new year, and i hope 2011 is a good one for all. The lovely Rebecca Anderson has one of her lovely pieces in this months issue of beads and beyond magazine, and she has used my torch fired enameled butterflies, i have yet to see the finshed piece, i need to go buy a copy. I have some of my butterflies on my etsy site just now, and they where also featured in a lovely treasury the other day, so a big thanks to Lucy for including them. Im now away to have a little refreshment and sit and watch some tv.
