spring is defiantly here

though we are still plagued by totally mad south winds every few days - its been an intense winter of them - otherwise it smells fantastic

google is playing silly buggers again - just when i thought it was all dandy

had a lot of fun making this, it was an order, i was sent a 
morrocan amulet to make into something else - stupidly i didn't 
photograph it in its original state. essentially the leather comes 
from the original piece.

a lot of water this year

some soldering i have been playing with, silver copper and brass
with pebbles

alpaca and brass with amazonite (i think) still to add the hooks

alpaca and brass with sterling hooks and some lovely kyanite i
got from down under

the wild and scraggy mountain top

a pendant - fossilized bone from treasurehider - brass and leather

thank you all for your comments i really do appreciate them, at the moment i'm a bit of a reluctant blogger as i cant find the hours in the day for all the stuff i want to do and the little mishaps and boring stuff of functioning - cooking shopping etc that consume huge amounts of time.


  1. every word and image tantalizes. :) x

  2. What fabulous image!!!! I love the jewelry you made--so much texture and color, and each one tells a story.

  3. your arrangements and presentation are stunning and i adore your work. so lovely this sharing we all do. thanks a bung bunch full!

  4. Simply utterly beautiful. Keep soldering.

  5. i love how simple the last ones are. they're simple but yet so powerful. keep going :)

  6. Maybe "alpaca and brass with apatite?"
    The wild and scraggy mountain top looks inviting.
    Photos can be enough blog when time is tight
    Thank you, Alex.
