Christmas Countdown

Well Christmas is nearly here, and we have all experienced the snow and cold weather.
It has been difficult to get enough energy to go out to the studio, these past few weeks.
All my shows are finished, with it being quite a good year, both for my ceramics and jewellery.My first show will be Sherborne Castle Country Fair in May.
Here are a couple of photos of recent items.

I am a Blogger !

Well I have arrived, this is my first post on a cold Monday morning. I am trying to finish all the daily bits and bobs before I go into the studio. I am trying to desperately make enough stock for the Christmas fairs.
Do take a look at my websites http://avalonbeads.webs.com/ and you can link into my ceramic website from the links page, follow some of my work on flicker.As this is my first blog I will make it short and sweet.
Here is a Ocean Focal bead that I have made by layering of different glass, if you look at it carefully you can see shells and rocks.
