I’ve made a new batch of large bee brooches and smallers bees which can bee pendants or brooches. the small be design has been changed to follow the design of the large bee and all bees now have a guilded thorax. Here’s a small bee as a pendant.
I made this for me as I wanted to move on from the style of copper/ silver bracelet that I’ve been wearing for some years now.
This has silver, copper and brass links to give an interesting variation of colour. Because I’m hamfisted, I’ve made a matching toggle and loop clasp which even I can operated quickly. Unfortunately it doesn’t stay this shiny for long. Maybe I should make a red/white/yellow gold version!
Artweeks in Oxford started with a beautiful sunny weekend and we are here until and including Bank Holiday Monday. I shall be here everyday, but not until the afternoons. The site is open from 11:00 till 18:00 apart from Thursday when we have a late night till 20:00.
All my new filigree work is on show and some other new pieces including pendants with yellow quartz, peacock ore and pistachio nuts.
Doing some interesting new pieces with Keum Boo and some new designs of bracelet. However, because of the shows, I doubt these will hit the website this year. I’ve been asked to do quite a lot of repair work recently – very satisfying when it works out.
