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.
