Here's my daughters rabbit Oscar, he looks so cute when he's sleeping, he just throws himself on the floor and within seconds he's sound asleep, wish i could do this, The only thing is he has a hutch in the house where he sleeps,pees,and poos but other wise he has the run of the house all day, but he dose have a habit of chewing through cables ie, phone cables, i have lost could how many i-pad cables i have been through, at least they are unplugged so he does'nt hurt himself. don't you all think he's cute?
Here is one of my creations this week. I have only managed to get up to my workshop about three times this week, really would like to get more work done but find it hard when i also work full time else where. this pendant is now listed in my etsy shop at www.silvermeadows.etsy.com, it measures 2" and has a 4mm round Amethyst stone, all made from sterling silver wire. I also got a lot of pieces back from the Edinburgh Assay office in total 38 pieces, still need to get more work Hallmarked but i'm getting there. Today I might head out for a little wonder around the shops seeing as it's not raining or freezing cold. hope you all have a wonderful weekend, Enjoy, x

decided to take a quick snap of what i have on my work bench tonight. I have made quite a few pieces this week, but it's always nearly after 9pm when i head home so it's to dark to take any pics, That is my job over the weekend. i got these lovely lampwork cabs yesterday in the post from Trudi Doherty from Glittering prize. She had made beads like this and i loved the colours in them, so i asked her nicely if she could make them again but into cabs, and heres what i got, love them, The pendant is made from sterling silver wire with a 4mm blue topaz set into tube. i have earrings in the same style, I'm trying to build up stock for the fair that i'm doing in two weeks today. Well i wish you all a goodnight, sweet dreams.

Well i'm another year older, 37 where have the years went? I was out last night with my friends for a lovely meal, then we all went to see Madonna, i have to say i was quite dissapointed, i think we were all wanted her to sing most of her older songs, but she sang a couple, so glad that we won the tickets. I had a few hours at my workshop today and i made this little butterfly necklace, which has now sold. My lovely big bro came down for a few drinks to help me celebrate my birthday which was nice, this is my first birthday with out my wonderful mum who passed away at christmas, who i miss and think about every day. x

Big happy smile on my face, here is some of my new tools that i got today from Rio grande, still waiting on two more deliveries from Otto Frei and Sutton tools. I got some silver which i have been needing for a while, along with textured plates, swanstorm disc cutters, new hammers and stone setting punches. I have been sharing bench space in Edinburgh for a year and a half which i have loved and met some other wonderful jewellers, but i have got myself a little place of my own, so this is why i'm buying loads of new tools that i will need for myself. I will keep you all posted with pics, as my new place need loads of work done, and hopefully i will add some pics of new jewellery some.
