silver never goes out of fashion..........

so, i've had a productive few days, a friend asked me to make a silver band with the inscription 'live forever' inside, pic below - inscription doesn't show very well in these pictures unfortunately but i think you can get the idea

i was really pleased with how the ring turned out, it was the first time that i have done engraving and i also had a short deadline for completing the ring as they guy wanted to give it to his lady before she went away a couple of days later.

This is another piece from my silhouette collection, it looks faaaabulous on, its size Q - R and is made from silver (of course!)

Anyway i'm off to barcelona for a few days in a week or two so then ill be forced to chill out and do nothing!

pretty shiney things

so i cut my finger and it hurt, then i did it again, and that hurt! then i did it again!! im officially dumb,

anyway this is why ................................. i was making stuffs again...........

four leaf clover charm, silver as per usual!

silouette pendant on a chain with a cute butterfly clasp

Dove pendant, on a chain with a vintage style clasp. I absoloutely love this piece and really had trouble parting with it but its for a friends ladys birthday so i wont be cruel and keep it, maybe ill just steal it off her oneday when she's drunk so she wont remember!

your only as busy as you make yourself............. here are my latest bits of silver finery ;) the anklet is for a friend, i'm not overly big on hearts used in jewellery but i'm quite please with how this piece came out. Especially as it was my first attempt at anything this fiddily.

Its a silver anklet, my friend asked for a heart on it so i simply used some silver wire to create a clasp, this keeps the item as bulk free as possible as you dont want lots of dangly bits knocking around your ankle, would you??? I also attatched a safety chain just to make the piece more robust if thats the right word to use.

This is an extra thick silver band i made for a friend of my fiance, he wanted a simple chunky thumb ring that wouldn't make him look like he should be spending the evening at revenge in brighton if you catch my drift.

This is just another plain band i made for another friend, he also wanted a simple, plain silver band for his little finger.

Its so difficult to come across decent plain bands locally - maybe i'v found a niche in the market for myself.

busy busy busy............

I have a week off work but not to rest - this has to be a really productive week - i need some extra cash!

I ordered some business cards a few days ago - i designed them myself and i'm itching to see how they come out - then i can start spreading the word!

these are some paintings i have done recently, some are for sale and some are already sold so get in touch if you like any of them. I ran out of silver and i have so many ideas for jewellery to make - i have ordered a load so i'm really hoping it will arrive tomorrow.

its such a beautiful day i'm going to take the dogs out and make the most of it!!!!!!
