A Turquoise and silver twist bracelet for a friends mother
A Citrine & Silver Pendant for a special friendHope she doesn’t take a peek here!
Over the last three weeks I have been lucky enough to see three lovely sunsets, which again my camera just cannot do justice to mother nature.
just can’t capture the feeling
& I have already posted this one but why not again 🙂
So till next week :)..I might surprise and post before!
Tonight I started my first class in Jewellery design at my local adult education centre 😀
The tutor is a lovely German lady… http://www.oliviaschlevogt.com
and she got me working on a piece of square copper, this is what happened..
sawed a circle…which left me with lovely glittery hands 🙂
hammered it to make a dome
drilled it , drew on it and sawed it some more 🙂
Polished it to revel my wonderful errr sawing skills, top marks for wonkyness, still not bad for a beginner:)
Not quite here yet..but 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…

Little lady has a Scientific trick book so today she made a shiny egg…The egg is hard-boiled, as I didn’t fancy cleaning up slime today…
completely cover egg in black soot…
Taa daa shiny egg, photo does not do it justice..
Then when you take it out it is dry..magic! sorry science:D
The real reason is (from the book)….’thousands of tiny bubbles form on the sooty surface, the carbon in the soot repels the water creating the bubbles. The bubbles are so small you can’t see them clearly, but they reflect the light back to your eyes and make the egg look silvery’.
