Why do the weekends go so fast, I always feel that i finsh work on a Friday then within a blink of an eye it's Monday morning again, then back to work again, if only i could win the lottery (I wish) I did manage to head up to my workshop at the weekend and made a few pieces and here is a pair of earrings that i made, i fused some 24ct gold leaf onto them and have embossed a leaf texture pattern, I have made a few other pieces which you can see them on my Flickr page. Thanks for looking, and you can also find me on Facebook under silvermeadows.

secret garden

I just love my new saw that i bought just the other day, it's perfect for cutting out small pieces, These earrings measure 2cm, i have hand sawn out all the centre pieces. Hopefully i will list these today on my Esty shop. Hope everyone is having a good Easter, I have a few days holidays from work which is just great, but there will be no choc eggs for me, seeing as i'm on a diet once again.

My new purchases

I ordered a few bits and bobs at the weekend, I ordered this knew concepts saw frame, I have read great reviews on it so I thought that i would spend the money on a decent saw for a change. I have seen loads of new tools on Rio grande which i am going to purchase hopefully over the next few weeks, just wish we had a great site in this country, but i'm willing to pay the shipping charges for some decent tools. I have lost my mojo of late but hoping to find it again, I have signed up to do a trade fair in September at Glasgow SECC, so i really need to work on a few designs and get my act together. I was enjoying the gorgeous weather we have been having here in Scotland, but today i woke up pulled back the curtains to a snow blizzard. This time last week i was strolling along the beach with the dog wearing a vest top, crop trousers and flip flops and now i'm back to woolly hats and wellies. Will be back soon with some pics of my new creation using my new saw.x
