This year has been a full on year for me.
Firstly I have been certified by Lynne Glazzard Jewellery and Enamels as a Mokume gane instructor in metal clay. This technique is truly beautiful. Thank you Lynne for your wonderful instruction.
Then keith and I had a wonderful cruise around Italy, which was so good that we will be doing that again.
I invited Tilly Wilkinson to teach at my studio hear in Chichester, she taught us how to use enamels on copper and then to make a unique settings for the pieces, this re-kindled my love of colour with enamels.
Then is was another visit up to Lynne's for a short holiday, on the back end of that a course in stained glass painting with Alan, this was totally out of my comfort zone and I enjoyed the technique very much.
Lastly but not least was a 5 day course and my friends in Cornwall at CSACJ, this was a class with the very talented Goldsmith from the USA Micheal David Strulin. All I can say is I learnt loads it was a fantastic end to a very busy year.
Below are some photos of just some of the things I got up to this year. I can honestly say I have enjoyed every bit of it.
