Finally, I found my way into a workshop again, woo hoo! The delightful Sarah Wilkie allowed me into her space yesterday to create a pair of silver bangles that I've had jangling in the back of my mind for ages now.
Simple, knocked-about 3mm round wire, stamped with my kids names, nothing fancy. I can't begin to describe the satisfaction that this bit of 'smithing has brought me, thanks so much to the beautiful Sarah Wilkie (seen here at her bench) of seren-d for, once again, indulging me.
I met Sarah last year and on that first meeting she just gave me several semi-precious stones to work with because, well, she's just that kind of gal. She saw one of the covered bricks I'd made and thought her stones would be useful to me - how nice of her was that? She was right too although it did encourage me to go and spend 3 figures in the mineral shop days later. Thanks Sarah!
