Well it has come around again… Mothers Day that is. I have been lucky enough to receive a gorgeous Jasmine plant from my daughter Lisa and we are being taken out to lunch by our other daughter Nicola. All this after having had a few days alone as our foster daughter is on camp. I am now sitting here watching a film, a take off of Uncle Buck with John Candy. This one has a woman in the main role but otherwise is the same story. Must confess I prefer the John Candy one. Lovely end to the week!
I have had the pieces back from the casters so I will be able to make a new piece in the Ellipse range. It is quite a complicated piece and was suffering from the amount of soldering involved so I decided to make it much easier on myself and get the components cast, less to go wrong (I have already attempted the piece many times and have wasted a lot of silver as well as time!) I hope to complete the new piece this week and am quite excited about it… been a long time from concept and a few disasters inbetween. I shall keep you updated on progress.
I took the opportunity to make up one of my tiaras and some earrings to match this week. Always popular it is the Lilies and Pearls, so pretty. I had made it with Swarovski Crystals for a change but it didn’t look as good – much better with the Freshwater Pearls.
