Order in Chaos....


A big bit of silver sheet I had ordered came in the post today...which let me get on with lots of making!! There has been a HUGE hike in silver prices lately which is hitting us jewellers hard....boo! But anyway....the silver let me get on with making a brooch {another like the Begonia one I have on my business card}..lots of Geranium Outline's to become earrings, and necklace...and new shape Begonia Outlines as earrings. Much silver dust everywhere!!
It is fair to say my bench is a tip!..so I will no doubt have to try and sort it out at some point......such chaos everywhere, is order possible from this??

Btw....WHAT is going on with Flickr?? I am not liking the new set-up if thats what it is....I am kinda hoping it's a system problem cos it's proving pernickety and bothersome. humf.....I will need to go do some detective work on their blog and find out what the deal is. Double boo!

Wow! Thank you for the look inside your "atelier". I do love the silver, too bad to hear about the price hike. Also-I agree with you on this flickr nonsense! I thought my computer was just wonky-oh no ! I hope it does not stick around...

Hey Abigail!
I love seeing the work in progress shots ;)
I think all the tools and woodblocks look so cool. I work for a metalsmith resin artist, so when I'm not in my studio working with textiles, I'm in hers working with metals! It's great!
I can't wait to see how everything turns out!
