Oh this has been such a bad weekend....firstly with my day all planned out on Friday the first thing on my list was to buy ink for the printer and petrol for the car which was nearly on red!!! I set off only to get half way there as I was hit by an articulated lorry.... went right into the side of me spun me round into the line of the oncoming traffic...reeeeallly scary, I am ok just a bit shaken up, but the car is not so good....can it get any worse...oh yes it can...

After I had tried to calm down a bit I tried to get onto my website...only to be faced with my site not being was eventually sorted out...problems with the host company, so apologies if any of you wondered where I had gone.

As you can imagine I was pretty frazzled by this time...but had to laugh in between the crying as I called to tell my mum and dad about the accident she checked I was all ok told me to have a nice bath and asked quite innocently what type of truck it was that hit response was I don't know but it was big....mum's response was 'no what was written on the side of it', trying to hold it together I replied Anchor Butter, thinking what does that matter, 'I am never buying that again' was her response.

I couldn't not laugh!!!

bye for now

'Sweetheart' Pendant is a simple sterling silver heart that hangs from a silver trace simple but soo effective.

Oh sore fingers!!!

The sore fingers have been a result of some intensive wire wapping this week, I have been working on some new designs, some have worked some not quite as expected, here are some of the results, first of all is 'Semeru' lovely hand woven sterling silver ellipse hoops in either shiny silver or oxidised version.
'Talicia' are beautiful hand woven earrings in a different shape this time and with the additon of gorgeous Peridot & Carnelian......I love these.
The next two pairs are just a pretty but a bit easier on the fingers to make, lovely little goldfill hearts hang from gently curving earwires, these are available in either the polished version or a random bubble version.....these are great to wear & light as a feather.........
The tutorial used in the design of the woven hoop earrings was designed by the lovely Lotta Knutar...Thanks

Sorry it has been so long since my last update....I am back from my holiday feeling refreshed and full of design ideas, Egypt was wonderful....I just need to find the time now to turn the ideas into designs.
I thought it was about time that I put my silversmithing course to good use and have been making a variety of pendants this week here are a few of them 'Sunshine on Silver' a hammered sterling silver rectangle with a beautiful Aragonite stone set at the bottom.
'Dot to Dot' a hammered disc with a random pattern of polka dots and finally 'Hidden Secrets' a clamshell pendant which conceals a hand wirewapped carnelian briolette inside....I have one of these myself and love it. These are all available on my website at the moment.
I have had so much fun making them and cannot wait to my new stamps and tools to arrive to try out some more ideas......
