Hi all
I just thought I would share some photo's a delegate took and then emailed them to me, I thought they were grrrrrrreat.
This is me doing a demo on photography

This is Nicola Calow doing a soldering demo.

This is Tracey Spurgin doing a ring demo.
See what you think?????
Thank you Helen foster-turner for sharing them with. I have used some of the other pic you took in the next newsletter.

We did have a blast and everyone really enjoyed themselves. Roll on next year:)

Better late then never

Well I thought I better crack on and get my pendant finished that I made in Holly Gages repousse class.

So here it is, unfortunately I can't  show the pods I made, as silly me put them in the hold on my flight home and one got crushed, although it is back together I have yet to fire it.

Very Art Nouveau and very me :)

This is the back of the pendant which I completely forgot to show yesterday  Doh!!!!!!

WOW wee

Wow what an amazing week I have just had. I spent a week at the Mid Cornwall school of Jewellery with the talented Lisa Cain and Julia Rai taking a five- day intensive fast track Diploma along with Tracey Spurgin and Emma Gordon.

Boy it was blood sweat and tears, poor Tracey cut her finger with the tomato knife as she was chopping up the salad for our lunch. Tears form us all, so much pressure so little time. WOW still taking that on board. What an achievement for us all. Congratulations Emma and Tracey WE DID IT.

Then it was a six hour drive to Peterborough for the one day Art Clay UK conference, which was a blast with retailers and trash to treasure sale ( which I spent to much on ) and demonstrations. Mine was photography which I think went well.

And to top it all off I went and won the first prize in the competition for senior instructors 100g of clay whoopeeeeeee well chuffed with that.

This is the piece that won.


If you are interested I have been asked to teach this at the Mid Cornwall school of Jewellery
In June of next year as well as the potion bottle necklace with threaded closure.
Heres a sneaky peak of that piece of jewellery.

All in all its been an amazing week and then this morning i wake up to a delivery of Art Jewerly magazine and guess what I am in it.
Blimey can it get any better :)
I hope you enjoy seeing Medusa I loved making her.

Look I made these just for fun :)

Here are some beads I made the other night, I love the colours and really enjoyed making them.

I have made a necklace as well, which sold before I could take a photo, I think I will make some more beads and make these into necklaces :)

Not sure what to do with these ones any ideas???????

Polymer clay workshop

Yesterday I taught polymer clay Kaleidoscope canes, which we then made into a cuff and a small amount of beads. All that needs to be done is the polishing to get the lovely shinny finish.
I think they made a fantastic job. Just take a look!!!

These are the kaleidoscope canes my fab students made.
Great job ladies:)

Add captionThis cuff was amazing

 I think all my Students did a great job, I'm so proud of each and every one of you :)
