Here is a little pair of earrings that i made at my workshop today, These measure 1 1/2" with the ear wire. I have cut out little flowers in the centre of the earring, then i doomed the flower, then i soldered it back onto the earring. i used my dremel to add some texture, I added a little liver of sulpher to darken the flower and part of the bottom of the earring, Then i popped them into the polisher. I have been looking at tools this week, I just love rio grande and otti frei, for their tools, just wish we had places like them in the UK, So I think that i'm going to purchase a few bits and bobs as even with the delivery and tax it works out cheaper than tools in this country.

Yahoo its the weekend

Here is another piece of my bridal range, I made this a few months back, which i had already added a pic to my flickr site but i did'nt like the first style what i made as it was straight, so i decided to remake this again and make it more curved. Last night i added a few more pieces to my etsy site, which i really need to be adding to more often. I am hoping to be ordering a new range of packaging hopefully within the next month, plus i really need to research on getting into doing some trade fairs, as i feel doing the small craft fairs, im not doing as well as people just want to buy pieces at lower prices. Hope you all have a lovely weekend .
