Back from a long Weekend.

I have been away for a long weekend to Brixham with my family and the dogs. It was lovely to spend good quality time together. We walked our feet off and visited loads of places. The dogs played in the sunshine.
Husband and son (Hunter Gatherers) went fishing and caught nothing !!!
The coves in that area are lovely and was worth the steep walk.

Now it is back to work in the studio making some more Ocean Focals and Big Hole Beads, which will be on my Etsy shop and Ebay this week.
Will update with phot's over the next few days.

Cabs, Silver and Big Hole Beads

Since I last updated you, I have been busy with making and coring Big Hole Beads, to fit any of the popular European bracelets. These will be on my Etsy shop and Ebay next week.

Do have a look at my shop, I have finished items and beads for you to buy and make up.
Here is a set of seven beads called Violet for sale.

I have also been making some new cabs, making them into rings and pendents, set in silver. I am waiting for some cabs to come back that I made, they need to be lapped / sanded off on there bottoms, so they will sit correctly in there setting.
I am also hoping to have another day course with the talented George Harper-East, who taught me so much about silversmithing.
Time to finish this blog, speak again soon, with other goodies from my studio.
