The Brooch has now been collected and will be on display for members to view.
I'm on holiday now and so I will be taking it easy. However, I can't resist doing some designing. I always have design ideas and need to note these down when they come to me.
I may see something on a building, a fence, a gate perhaps - the swirl of a metal gate. Sometimes it might be the deep colour of a flower which I might relate to a particular gemstone. I have a few ideas for working with silver. I am especially keen to work in layered silver and see how this develops.
