Exhibition details

I can't believe how quickly our exhibition has crept up on us, it's only a week and a half away. I've been so busy making jewellery. I still have some paintings to finish, nothing like leaving it until the last minute.



I've also been making the exhibition invitation. We'd love to see you there if you can make it.


Here are just some of the things I've been working on.


Drilling and wiring beach glass.


Etching metals with my hand made stamps.


Drilling and soldering china.


Cutting spoon handles, making beads and more yoyos with old tin centres.


My desk top where the jewellery happens, always a mess but I get there in the end.


Caught in action - DH snapped this looking down into part of my studio. He says he refuses to come down unless he's wearing a hard hat.



I also held an Altered Book workshop a couple of weeks ago, I haven't posted on my blog since then, very slack of me. Eight lovely students created some fabulous new books from old ones, with gorgeous pages to sketch, journal, write poetry or just leave as is.

Thanks for visiting, I hope to not take so long for my next post.
I'd better get painting.

Love the photo of you in your studio Ro. It is a real Aladdins Cave in there...full of wonderful treasures.
I LOVE the pieces of soldered china (might have to commission a few of those when you have time???)
