The Christmas Rush......

You think you are ready for it, but then you realize your not !! That is the run up to the Christmas shows.
I have just finished my last show and the stock has  a really large hole in it. However that now leaves me, with a blank canvas to start the new year.
My trusty sketch pad has loads of new ideas from pendants to brooches and rings. I can't wait to start after Christmas, with I hope a few new tools for birthday / Christmas. Surely with all the hints I have dropped, someone will have got it :)
As always I have some pictures to show you. I am still etching a lot of my silver jewellery, especially the backs of my rings.

Well here goes, the first picture is a pair of 14mm silver etched stud earrings.

The next is some silver and lampwork cabochon studs.

Lastly a 25mm Silver Poppy Ring with silver Poppies on the bezel edge.

Hope you have like the items of eye candy, that I have shown you. I will blog again next month / next year. I would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a healthy New year.
Thanks to all my customers, old and new for making this a really good year.
To my friends (you know who you are) thanks for your support and encouragement.
