This is what I cast this week - it was like holding a handful of pirate treasure. This photo was taken as I was starting to clean them up - I really could do with minions. I gave myself a disastrous manicure with the buffing machine!
This weekend John will put up the second of the Berlin pendants from 17th and Riggs
. We also took delivery of our ten new dining chairs. They are the Navy chairs
. It was very exciting to get home after a day at the studio and have 5 big boxes so beautifully packaged waiting for me. We just have to get a dining table made now - it has to be narrower and longer than our current table. I really wanted to get a burnt orange formica table made, very mid century modern - but they have discontinued the colour that I like. So maybe it will just have to be white, which will be fine.
I thought I would share how my day progressed yesterday. Although, I have my bench set up,
I don't have a clean space yet to complete my pieces. But that's what dining tables are for - right?
This is what it looked like just a short while later and below is a photo of the chaos at its peak!
Anyway, I got a lot done and below are the fruits of my labour.
It is a little more conservative than my usual larger pieces but not everyone likes big!
|Star pendant with turquoise beads and fresh water pearl|
|Star bracelets with aqua marine beads and a freshwater pearl.|
Flower bracelet with African glass trade beads, turquoise and a fresh water pearl.
This pendant is a work in progress and I am just working on how to space the dangles
so that you see them all once the piece is being worn.

All in all a productive week. I am off to England next week and will do my best to post when I can and will keep you updated with my travels.
