I’m also playing around with a copper and turquoise bracelet



Not been too crafty lately but..

Tonight I started my first class in Jewellery design at my local adult education centre πŸ˜€

The tutor is a lovely German lady…

and she got me working on a piece of square copper, this is what happened..

IMG_2160sawed a circle…which left me with lovely glittery hands πŸ™‚

IMG_2162hammered it to make a dome

IMG_2163drilled it , drew on it and sawed it some more πŸ™‚

IMG_2166Polished it to revel my wonderful errr sawing skills, top marks for wonkyness, still not bad for a beginner:)

Not quite here yet..17butterflybut working on it!

Now I need a workspace



although mine will never be this clean and tidy!

All pics not my copper are found on the dreaded but oh so loved pinterest… …yes it’s Little Ladys newest page enjoy and like πŸ˜‰
