Today I was playing sterling silver.

Sterling silver and copper
spinner ring.
Hi all
Well today I felt so much better that I had the morning playing in my studio, I thought I ought to play with some sterling silver as my silver clay is getting low.

I made two spinner rings one with a hammered silver moving band and the other I used D wire in a band, round copper wire hammered and sterling round and hammered. I had forgotten how much fun it is to work with real metal.

I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed making them.

Ceramic class

As promised here are my first ever ceramic piece's. The clay used was a low fire earthenware and at £3.50 for 10k I think I will be purchasing some.

These piece's are fired and are in the greenware state ready to add some colour.

The little leaf house. It is only 11/2 inches tall.
Finger mouse. These remind me of a kids TV programme I used watch as a child

Of course no project would be complete without beads.
I'm looking forward to adding the glaze to them.
