This is Harley and he has proved to be all I could ask for in a cat and so much more. He's a rescue cat and no spring chicken but he has settled in very well and is a great companion. He's very fond of cuddles and loves falling asleep in my arms which has further hampered the creative process but who could resist such a cute face?
Things have finally settled down and I'm back in the thick of ink and all things domino. Here are a couple of my latest offerings:
The first one features a circle of patinated brass which is a technique I have been experimenting with since attending a Silver Jewellery making course. The process involves some strong chemicals and many, many days but I love the results. The second one uses a circle of copper that has been subjected to the same process. The greens and blues are amazing. The third pendant is one of my favourites using a mixture of coloured resin as a canvas to display the inner workings of an old watch. With a bit more practise, I hope to be able to show you my silver creations but they're not quite up to a public display just yet!
Well that's all for now, hope to speak again soon but I've learned not to make any promises!! Sorry it's so short but I decided 'short' was better nothing!!
