I have a studio which I produce handmade ceramics and lampwork glass jewellery, along with silver work.

Cabs, Silver and Birds

As a update for those waiting for the Ringneck dove to hatch. Well she lost one egg which fell out of the nest and then the other one fell out, but I managed to save it on Monday and returned it to the nest. Mother sat on it and it hatched yesterday 6th April.
Then this morning, the nest was wrecked and the baby gone. Something had attacked the nest overnight....but what?

I have spent a day learning how to do silverwork, with the talented George Harper - East in Cirencester. I made some glass cabachons, which I took with me to have them set in silver.

I chose two from this group and this is what I made, with lots of help from George.
I then went onto The Falkland Arms at Great Tew, Chipping Norton, where my son Richard and Kate his partner are landlady and landlord.
 Not forgetting  Jazz their dog, who just keeps an eye on things.It is a Beautiful place like something off a chocolate box and I can recommend the accomodation and food.

 So I have had a lovely couple of days, now home to get busy in the studio.
