Cabs and silver

Just a short post today, as it is very busy here at Avalon with builders.
A couple of months ago I went on a silver course with the talented George Harper-East, there she taught me how to solder and work with silver, make a ring and do a fibula.
I make my own cabs and last week I felt convident enough to have ago at a ring at home in my studio. I am pleased with my result.
The cab is a lovley stormed green and pale blue
I have also been making some silver cored big hole beads.
These are on Ebay for sale 110704249765
Well as I said it is just a short blog today.

Holidays and Catching up.....

Well I have not updated in a while as I have been on holiday to Cyprus. It was so lovely and hot and the food was out of this world. As soon as I stepped off the plane the warmth and the smell of herbs, just hit you.
Paphos harbour was buzzing with fish restaurants and cool balmy evenings.
The week came and went really quickly, with the most lovely sunset on our last night.
Now down to work in the studio ! I had a reasonable show on the Bank holiday monday considering it rained all day.
Back on the torch making some Big Hole beads and a little bit of Cyprus in a focal Ocean Bead.

I'll catch up with you all very soon.
