March Challenges - Bird a Month and Four A Month

As I am rather behind on my challenges I have doubled up one piece so this is my Bird A Month and my fourth item for my Four A Month.

The piece above is a fine silver pin made using Art Clay Silver with enamel. It is called Blackbird and Sakura. My inspiration came partly from a song my good friends Lynne Glazzard's father, Jim Glazzard. Not surprisingly the song is called Blackbird :)

You can listen to it here.

The theme for my March For A month was flower pins. They are all fine silver and enamel. I started off with a purple flower ...

then a Blue Flower...

then I made the Mothers Day Flower Pin ....

and finally the Blackbird and Sakura. So here are my Four a Month for March altogether.

I have enjoyed making pins and will do more of them. I think I prefer them to brooches.

If you would like to learn how to enamel check out my workshops. May is Enamel Fusion month and you can read about enamelling workshops being run around the UK on the Guild of Enamellers website.

Getting Back on Track!

I bet you have been wondering if I had fallen off the face of the earth it is so long since I posted! 

Sometimes thing just don't turn out as planned and an unexpected family health problem meant I have been rushing around and not getting my paws on the silver clay stuff :(

Anyway things are starting to settle down now so I shall be on catch up.

First in line is finishing my March Bird a Month and Four a Month. 

Watch this space... ;-)
