This is what I have been doing today, making bezel settings, #jewellery #handmade #sterlingsilverjewellery

I have been quite quiet the past few weeks, but I did manage to get up to my workshop the other day, as Im still waiting on a order of silver sheet to come along with other silver, I decided to make all these bezel setting for all these lovely glass cabochons and stones. As you will agree these stones look lush. I love the glass cabochons, especially the blue bubble cabs, These have been made by Trudi Doherty from Glittering Prize, Not sure what i'm making all these pieces into, maybe a lovely big pendant for this poppy cab, earrings and a few rings., I have also ordered a bonny doon hammer from Rio Grande so I keep looking for the post man to bring this, I have a list as long as my arm of all the amazing tools that I want from Rio Grande, I would love if we had somewhere in the UK to stock all the tools that America have, Keep popping back to see what I have been up to, Plus if you want please feel free to follow me on Facebook, just hit the Like button at the side of my blog.

Back again

 Hope everyone had a great christmas and hope 2013 is a good year for you all. I did'nt realise that it has been so long since my last post, so here is a few pictures of some of my new pieces, all of which are listed in my Etsy shop, The flower pendant above has been hand pierced from sterling silver sheet, This measures just over 1" and the chain length is 16".
 These two rings both have twisted bands, the ring above has a chinese turquoise and the blue stone ring is a Lapis Lazuli.
 Here is another style of my butterfly pendant. I have made a few different designs of this, which have all sold. I love to oxidise these as it really highlights the design on the silver.
 These little heart earrings with Chinese turquoise are so cute, perfect for a loved one for valentines day (not long now). I have just been looking through my Rio Grande catalogue that I got in the post the other day, I'm like a kid writing everything I want, my wish list is way too long. But i was good I only ordered a few things,but one thing I did order was a new hammer it is a bonny doon one, cant wait till it's here (sad or what).
Mind I also have a face book page if you want to like my page you can either look up silvermeadows, or hit the link at the side of my page, thanks again. I will try and not leave it nearly 2 months till my next post.
