What is this weather doing, one moment warm and all the plants think it is spring, next hard frosts and snow. So the plants are frost bitten or die. My poor Arum Lilly's have really had it this year.
I have been in the studio playing with a few ideas and trying to build up some stock as I have been booking my shows for this year. Already have a couple of commissioned orders to do, so a good start to 2012.
Cored a few Silver cored beads, this one is on Etsy for sale.
I also had a lovely Cabochon in my box, made by the very talented American Glass Artist, Donna Millard. I have looked at it for weeks, not knowing what to incorporate it into.
Then I decided to make it into a Sterling Silver ring for myself. I must say that I was pleased with it. The ring is a whooping 27mm across, so is a real statement piece.
Will have more items next week , so do pop back and have a look.
