My first blog! Exciting, but also very scary! I've seen blogs on almost every other jewellery artist's website, and have realised that these are the way forward! Although I'm not sure that my own blog will be as exciting or as entertaining as some of the others I have read.... Perhaps this will encourage me to fill my days with all sorts of exploits and adventures, so that I have something interesting to write about. I have also vowed to make a concerted effort to keep this blog regularly updated. Past experience has taught me that I am not that great at keeping my journals up-to-date (no journal I have started in the last 20 years has ever made it past January 31st). Despite this, please bear with me while I get to grips with this blogging lark, and I will try very hard not to bore you into oblivion!
I just had to start by showing you a picture of one of my favourite bracelets. It's called 'Silver Moss', and was made using the most gorgeous beads by lampwork artist Clare Scott. I have added little nuggets of jade and used lots of Hill Tribe silver beads, together with a hammered Hill Tribe toggle clasp. I'm not usually one for greens, but there is something about these wonderful, glossy beads that I just love! I'm not sure I can bring myself to sell this piece . . .
