While rummaging around my cupboards I found my little stash of jewellery I made long ago (in my past life I started a Visual Arts Degree, majoring in Jewellery and Silversmithing, but left to pursue other avenues. Now I am a database manager and work with computers all day, how did that happen???).
I have always enjoyed hand making items, and it is something that I encourage the kids to do too. I thought you might like to see a few of my bits and bobs.
The first is a series of rings; the two geometric shapes are made with resin and cut on the lathe. The bases are silver. The silver pieces were cast from mushrooms (a ring and brooch). The last rods are cufflinks, made from aluminum, hand cut on the lathe and then anodized.
I know the yellow ring looks like a pencil and is very deadly....hahaha
I hope you have enjoyed something a little different,
bye for now, T x
