Well I have had a wonderful birthday today. I have spent it at a silver clay workshop with youngest sons partner with 3 other people who we have enjoyed another workshop with in March. If you have never heard of silver clay is just what it says on the tin – silver mixed with clay to give you a very malleable silver which is very easy to work. Today I have made a silver ring I would never have bought myself, a filigree pendant, a pair of earrings and two charms. Hubby bought me a lovely clutch handbag, eldest son got me some heart-shaped nestabilities and cooked a wonderful dinner for us, youngest son has offered to pay for the next silver clay workshop and I also got some money to treat myself to some goodies.
The above picture shows what I have produced today. It really doesn’t do it justice but if you ever get a chance have a go – it is really good fun and quite rewarding. You could never buy bespoke jewellery for the price you would spend on a days course.
