I'm Back

Hello, sorry I've not posted anything for a while (I know thats a bit of an understatment) I've just been so busy with finishing work and putting it all up for marking and the degree show. Its official I am now a qualified jeweller. The degree show started on Fri 14th. It was a very exciting night but it was so busy it went past in a bit of a blur. If you havn't been to the degree show yet you should come for a visit there is a lot of lovely work. It's open every week day till 8 and next sat till 2.

Here is a little preveiw of some of my pieces

Rowan chain - Electroformed rowan twigs with silver links and red thread. Rowan wood and red thread were common charms used in Scotland in previous centuries, particularly in fishing villages where the people were extremely superstitious, to protect from witches.

Fish brooch - silver wire frame based on the shape of a boat with knitted silver wire and oxidiesed and enameled fish. This brooch is the largest in a collection of fish brooches I have produced for my degree show.
