Rings and things.......

Hope you are all enjoying these few warm days that we are having, maybe we will be having a late summer after all.
I had intended to clean and tidy the house yesterday as hubby was fishing all day.
However I went to the studio and before I new it, the day had passed by with no house cleaned but.........
I did get these couple of items made.


The cabochone is 25mm and sparkles like a rockpool with sea coral filling it's waters. I have etched the back and dressed it in Sterling silver.

The copper and silver earrings are a couple of stunning rose silvered cab set in silver on etched copper tear drops, they hang from simple silver wires.
So today I must stay out of the studio and do some housework !!!!!
Or maybe I might pop out this afternoon for just half an hour :)

Dressed in Silver

Well is it the end of Summer ? or maybe we will have a nice warm Autumn.
I have been making up some jewellery and this is my Ocean Heart and large shell , now dressed in silver.

I am getting ready for the Autumn shows, which will lead into Christmas, a very busy time for me.
I love making thse Ocean themed lampwork beads and have now made some buttons that are shaped like the shells. These would look lovely on a sea themed dress or jumper.

Just to let you know that I will be selling the buttons in my Etsy shop as soon as I have listed them.
As for my Ceramics, that is always busy and I have loads of new jugs and Items already to decorate for the Christmas shows.
I will update again in a few weeks.
