I don't seem to have much new work to show you at the moment and that is largely because I am in the middle of making some larger pieces.

What are you talking about I hear you ask.
Well, Zesty is what I have called my latest Bejewelled bracelet and earrings set I have just made. Fabulous oranges, yellows and monochrome beads all by the wonderful Laura Sparling on one of my handmade silver chains.
This weekend I am going a fair at Batemans, Burwash, East Sussex with the East Sussex Guild of Craftworkers. We will be in a marquee in the grounds with really high quality crafts and lovely people.
Batemans is a beautiful house that was the home of Rudyard Kipling. It now belongs to the National Trust property and sits in lovely gardens. Kipling wrote his famous poem IF while he was living there.
See I am not totally nutty (just a bit maybe) ;-)
So do pop along if you are in the area and say hello.

These titles get worse don't they :-)
Here is a pair of tiny bee earrings that I have just been enamelling. The honeycomb is patinated with Liver of Sulphur. Cute aren't they. I have to use my magnifier working when this small, the optician says it is my age! (thanks a lot!!)
Below is a rather chunky pendant I made a while a go but have only just enamelled. It is reversible with bubbles on one side ...
and stars on the other...
and then patinated for good measure! I am still trying to think of a good name for this piece.
You will remember a few blog posts ago I showed you a couple of Enamelled Accents workshop examples I had been making. If you missed it here is a quick link to it.
I have now patiniated these so here are some new photos.
I do love patiniating things, it really brings up the textures doesn't it.
