A Touch of Silver...

My Mum wanted a special gift for her brother's 70th Birthday, so I made a caravan key ring for her. It has a sterling silver screw fitting key ring, and a pure silver caravan, which has been textured and antiqued.
It was much more fun than the caravan holidays I endured as a teenager!!!! Keep your eyes peeled for a plastic brooch, and some mixed metal key rings based on this design.....
I've had so much fun working with silver that tomorrow I'm going to make some silver doll pendants too.

Paper & tin treasures

We had a lot of sunshine over the bank holiday weekend, so we spent a fair bit of time outside, hunting for treasure and planting flowers in the garden.

Kitty Tote Bag

The sunshine has now been replaced with rain, and so back to work....this week I'm going to be working with silver, and working on the design for my next sculpture.

The antique paper dolls in my collection, are fragile, and difficult to display, so these reproductions have been hand printed onto Egyptian cotton, and stuffed with all new polyester stuffing. Great to display on a shelf, or your bed...they are also great to cuddle :0)
